After the whirlwind of Labor Day weekend, a new wind is in the air. Fall is just around the corner. If you’re like me then you thrive on crisp cool air and being able to layer without overheating. However, the one downside to losing summer is losing the ability to wear white without a care.
Growing up in California the expression don’t wear white after Labor Day didn’t really translate. Why limit your self to only one season of white jeans? When I moved to Pensylvania for college I began to notice the application of what I thought was just an old saying. So I swapped my white jeans to dark and didn’t think much of it. Until now. Moving back to the West coast has reignited my love for lighter colors and for fashion itself. I still haven’t broken out my white jeans since labor day. However, I’ve met in the middle with wearing cream. Although you can be sure that white is just around the corner. Personally, I say let there be white.
Recently I’ve started exploring the world of Depop and found this beautiful beige Calvin Klein maxi skirt from Cocobolo. Cocobolo is easily one of my new favorite shops. It’s a modern/vintage boutique in Tacoma that helps support small environmentally conscious brands. If you haven’t already I highly recommend giving them some love.
The rest of my outfit is a mix between Nordstrom and J.Crew. My go-to for when I can’t find vintage pieces to thrift. As much as I would love to thrift everything sometimes it’s hard when you need something quick.
All together I decided to shoot for a long layered neutral look. I don’t know if it was the skirt or the cardigan, maybe even the heels, but I felt tall and confident. Dressing up for myself has put a boost in my step in my daily life. I may not dress up every day (a girl needs her sweats) but I really do notice a difference in myself when I do. Remember dress for yourself and believe in yourself.
Once again thank you for coming by and checking out the post. I hope you all had an amazing holiday weekend! Special thanks to Cortney for photographing me.
