If you want to be happy, be

Forever 21 linen cardigan, T by Alexander Wang low scoop back tank, Wilfred bandeau, Anthropologie shorts, Topshop leopard belt, H&M sandals, Banana Republic suede fringe bag

The weather has been really inconsistent and driving me crazy to the point of declaring blasphemous extremes (like "I hate this city" etc. Sorry Seattle, I didn't really mean it.. you know I hit a low point when summer gets delayed..) but yesterday it was finally sunny enough to wear shorts without looking desperately hopeful. Kept a natural color palette and let the neon yellow sandals pop, I got them for the fun bright color and simple straps, bonus: super easy to get in and out of (it's awful when you spend forever lacing and/or buckling). The linen cardigan is lightweight and perfectly slouchy and sheer so I end up rolling it into my purse and throwing it on all the time come mild summer evenings (so naturally I have it in white as well..) Happy Friday!

  22. I'm going to be creepy and say that I know exactly where this is... Hahah. I walk by it all the time! I love the "there used to be art here" wall.

    This is definitely one of my favorite outfits from you. I love all the details, from the neon sandals, to the leopard belt, and coral bandeau. You look lovely as always!
