As the weather heats up, it's time to rethink wardrobe choices. As you all know, layering cardigans is a crutch tool that I implemented for years to make my outfits feel more dynamic. And boy, did it make me rethink everything when I moved somewhere far too hot to consider wearing any more clothing than absolutely necessary.
Enter the statement necklace. They are a fantastic option for adding a lot of dimension to an outfit without compromising your heat management. Plus they are pretty.
I went on a bit of a spree at Old Navy the other day. They had an insane amount of clearance and basic tees were buy one get one free. It got a little crazy. One of the things I wanted to get, but didn't (mostly just because they weren't on sale) were these rad shoes:

For me, wearing skirts to the knee isn't a trend, it's a way of life. Which is why I am always excited to spot a skirt that doesn't flash too much of my leg at the mall. Much like the dress I posted on last week, I was surprised to find so many options at Forever 21.
It took me a long time, but I have come full circle on maxi skirts and dresses. It has something to do with the weather where I live, but I also really like the idea of not having to shave my legs every day in the summer. I seriously hate shaving my legs.
