Now that the 30×30 is over, you might be wondering, what on earth is Andrea wearing?! With the conspicuous absence of my 7 Days of Outfits posts, I have felt pretty darn anonymous in my outfits lately, and it’s a a little bit weird. But the reprieve from daily documentation has been nice. We’ve been running around doing summer things, like visiting family in other cities, but I managed to snag a few days of outfits to share with you you guys.
Here’s what I’ve been wearing lately…
We jetted down to my parents for the Fourth of July, for some small town parade action and a lot of BBQ. I tried out this linen dress by Everlane for the first time, and I really like it…. except for the racerback detail. I love how breezy it feels, but I am struggling to come up with a good bra to wear with it. On this day I opted for a sports bra, and it was a little uncomfortable to wear it for so many hours. If you have a favorite racerback bra, let me know! Otherwise the dress is super breezy and comfortable.
This is my, I-have-to-go-grocery-shopping-and-I’m-not-thrilled-about-it face. I grabbed this shirt as a layer in case the stores I was going to were AC-heavy, but I didn’t end up needing it. It’s new, from Tradlands, and I’m excited to share more about it in Friday’s post.
Testing out this Only Child x Seasons + Salt Alta top in a new combo with this black skirt, and I love it! I’m a big fan of the trapeze hemline, which gives the impression of a smaller waist (I can use all the help I can get this summer because of three little letters – IPA). On a side note, I’ve been blown away by how many of you have ordered this top! It’s been such a great staple for me, and I hope it is for you too. On this day I wore it fresh off the clothes line, no time to iron, and I love the textured look.
Oh, hello there taupe Birks. I did something very indulgent and bought myself another pair of new Birkenstocks. And then I promptly overthought my decision, and wrung my little hands wondering if I had made the right choice. (Did I really need another pair? Should I have gotten white?) Let me back up a minute. I love my black ones, and Birkenstocks are usually the first shoes I reach for any given summer day, especially as the temperature climbs. I had been feeling a desire for a lighter version of the style I love so much. In fact, I twice bought and returned the same style in tobacco, trying to convince myself not to add another pair. Ultimately, I gave in and bought the suede taupe. I’ve been overanalyzing my purchase for the last 24 hours, and I hope it was the right one. This color and style combo definitely harkens to the classic, grungy Birkenstock of days gone by. I’m not sure how I feel it that yet. About that patchouli…
Happy summer my friends! Be sure to get some sun on your face and some dirt on your toes this week. xo!
