cozy thursday: last week of spring.

cozy thursday: last week of spring

In case you didn't know, this Saturday, June 21, is the Summer Solstice, which means we are currently wrapping up the very last week of Spring 2014. I wanted to celebrate that fact by pulling together a festive, floral look I'd happily don while running around town doing errands, or meeting some girlfriends in the early evening for a couple of outdoor drinks. 

When I saw this embroidered striped cotton top from Suno, I had to actively prevent myself from wielding my credit card & having it overnighted to my doorstep. I love the soft, feminine detailing, as well as the conservative cut [and it has an exposed zipper on the back, which I love]. It just looks like a breathable, airy top that I could wear basically 24/7. As for bottoms, I went with classic, vibrant denim skinnies from Rag & Bone. They are no-nonsense, & they are perfect for layering with such a show-stealing top. For the feet, I chose the Seychelles Holdin' My Breath beauties in Dark Brown, though I would love to fill my closet with all seven shades available. I love these sandals, because they remind me of my grandmother, who had a gorgeous pair of white look-alikes, though they were slip-ons - no buckle. Having professed myself as a studs girl for the past few years, I have slowly been dipping my toes into the pool that is dangly earrings. And I have to say, these hammered gold-plated stunners from Kenneth Jay Lane could definitely find their way inside my jewelry box. I love hammered gold anything, really. To top it all off, I'd apply a swipe of my currently favorite lip gloss: NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige - which, as you may know, is not beige - it's the perfect pink. 

It's been quite a long time since my last outfit post, & as I have re-evaluated my goals & wishes for this space, I realized it was time to bring them back. You will see outfit posts under the title Cozy Thursday around here every once in a while. They won't pop up every week, but only when I am feeling the pull to Fashion Land [is that a real place?]. When I do post a Cozy Thursday look, I will be linking it up with Alison from {long distance loving}, since her Friday's Fancies posts are what launched me into the world of creating fun, inspiring outfit boards.

That's all for today. Join me here tomorrow for another edition of my long-lost Weekender posts. And don't forget to enjoy the last week of Spring!
