Back to Reality

Happy Tuesday Loves! 

Back from vacation and back to reality. I had such a lovely week, but boy have I hit the ground running. 














I have always been a denim girl, my work environment is very casual and I am allowed to wear jeans every day (even distressed).  I find in the warmer months I steer clear of jeans because they are just so darn heavy for 90+ degree weather.  And with the temps still soaring to almost 100 this week, I am not completely committing to my 'denim every day' routine, but I have begun to reincorporate them into rotation.  I think I have over indulged a bit too much this Summer, and I did a little less slipping into my denim and a little more squeezing in. Praying my jeans had been washed since the last time I have worn them, or maybe I was just having a bit too much fun! 

I remember as a kid, wanting to wear all of my new school clothes the first week of school, and melting under layers, plaid and corduroy.  While it is still a little too soon to be styling my denim with sweaters and boots, my go-to is a loose tank and kimono for a lighter, breezy transitional look.

How are you transitioning into Fall?

xx, Elise

  4. I'm so glad you had a good time! Loving those pictures of you on the dock. That's awesome that you get to wear jeans. The previous company I worked for we were allowed to wear them all the time. Jeans are such a great transition piece. Sierra Beautifully Candid

  6. Omg- I am relating to all of this, wanting to wear jeans all the time, but avoiding them a bit in the super hot summer months because they can be so heavy- and wearing ALL the new fall clothes the first week back to school and ending up sweating my face off because it was essentially still summer. But I wanted to make a good first fashion impression, so wearing the New Things was SO KEY. :)

  7. I also work in a jeans casual office place but I think I have only worn jeans to work twice all summer haha! It has been way to hot so I have been in a dress or skirt everyday... everyone always comments on how I am "so dressed up" but it is way more comfortable to be in a dress when it's so hot! Cute look!!

  8. Your loose tank, distressed jeans and pretty kimono look perfect for a relaxed day on the waterfront. Being that we've just started a three day heatwave here in the NorthEast I suspect you'll be dressing more lightly for today through Thursday... but hopefully there will be some respite in the shade by the water..
    Try to keep cool and hydrated and don't forget the SPF!

  18. Vacation is so good for the soul, and how gorgeous are these pics?! I hear ya on staying away from denim in the warmer months, I sweat just looking at people walking around in jeans this time of year... in Florida! But I'm excited to break back out some of my fav pairs as the weather cools off <3
