summer inspiration (& perspiration?)

summer is finally upon us (or at least it's raining right now! i mean, what gives, nyc?) & that means a definite re-thinking of outfit choices. i mean, am i the only one who kind of forgets what to wear when the weather is warm? for months & months of cold i had my go-to boots, beanies, & coats, & i could get dressed in .5 seconds because i just had the routine down. once it started getting hot, i'm over here all, "where did those shorts go that i wore last summer? did i throw them away...?" & "i think i have a pair of saltwater sandals somewhere..." i still haven't quite nailed down the location of all my warm-weather clothes, but i will admit there are some summery things i've been looking forward to since the doldrums of january/february-ish.

i'm going to go ahead & warn you now that absolutely not one of the items on this list is groundbreaking in any way. i should also warn you the photos below are very, very pinterest-y & should therefore be approached at the very least with severe caution & skepticism, if not with outright disbelief and rejection.

so without much further ado about nothing, here they are!

white shoes. keds, supergas, converse, you name it. they give off such a wholesome, early-1960's vibe. they're quite baby houseman circa "dirty dancing," wouldn't you agree? & in this scene too, of course (does it surprise anyone that i've always been a bit influenced by baby's style?)

ballcaps (or do we just call them baseball hats?)

this is one that needs to be given a little more thought. the real question with this one is, how much does it make you look like kristen stewart? & is that an association you really want?) in other news, if you want to try out an outfit like this first photo, heck, more power to you, i say!

slouchy white tops.

remember, this one is a j. crew ad! it's not real life, people!:

i know in my heart that's grape juice:

short-sleeved (or rolled up? or whatever, that part doesn't matter so much) chambray.

girlfriend here is wearing a few of my favorites all in one outfit. she must have used a time machine to go forward in time, read this post, then travel back in time to pick out this outfit. that's the only  reasonable explanation:

light fedoras (what should these be called? summer wide-brimmed hats? not sure. i obviously need to be better about terminology).

& notice how this one is wearing a slouchy white top too, eh? eh?

well, & there you have it. hopefully you're starting to sense the summery vibe i'm trying to convey. all things light, breezy, & preferably white are looking really exciting right about now. toss in some saltwaters, some overalls perhaps, some nautically-themed tops, & baby, you got a stew goin'. (shout out to arrested development! are you watching the new season?). hooray for summer.


  1. Panama Hat! That's the hat you're looking for!

    1. That's it! I knew there had to be a specific name other than the lame ones I came up with :)

  2. Sweat a good deal is a very important factor and also you be aware that it could bring about serious sadness and being made fun of. However what is the regarded reasons for extra sweating causes for individuals to perspire to a great extent? This will be reviewed on this page to help illuminate an individual regarding it. Give off, as perspiration
