Cool down

We’re approaching the end of August and I’m just itching for fall which is my favorite season for fashion. It’s about this time of year in DC where the humidity is beginning to dissipate somewhat even though the temps are still sitting around the mid-80s (translation: low 30s, for my fellow non-Americans). I take this opportunity to wear any sleeves and pants if at any moment I deem the weather even the least bit tolerable for that sort of thing.

I wore this on a shopping excursion with my mom last week. I really didn’t think much of it, except that I wanted to be comfortable and that I really, really wanted to wear this new boy shirt I bought from J.Crew in this cool Snowcat print. I didn’t really care about the rest of it. Haha. But the outfit actually generated quite a few compliments, so I figure it must be blog-worthy:

I really love the casual fit and the print is a great addition to my closet that is dominated by solid colors.

    The snowcat print looks floral from far away. I like it a lot.

    I vote yes to the Reese haircut with bangs… but no to the purple/magenta 😉 I think you have the right hair type to pull off both the length and side-swept bangs without it being too high maintenance.

    I agree, the purple/magenta idea is probably not a great idea. LOL.

    Super cute! My hair is growing out and I need to figure out what to do with my hair also. Can’t wait to see what you decide.

    I’m itching for fall too. Lots of layering and so much fun.

    I like Reese’s hairstyle! I have long hair now, my hair is too thick to try this hair… two weeks later I would have totally different hair!
