The week leading up to a long and leisurely holiday weekend is always the hardest, right? I’ve taken to wearing a typically summer skirt that moves with me wherever I go, especially through each 9-5 countdown to (Thank God it’s) Friday!

What are your plans for this Labor Day Weekend?

A few purple things that have been currently appearing in my apartment/outfit rotation/or shopping cart. Apparently, I’m having  an appreciation for all things purple recently.

Maybe this is my way to reconcile one half of my alma mater’s school colors (Go JMU Dukes!) in my own personal purple out.

Summer let’s not break up, you really don’t have to go anywhere. I’ll appreciate you for as long as we’re together. If you need any additional convincing arguments besides my words, consider this outfit combination:

1 Essential Chambray Shirt +  1 slightly hippie drop waist skirt + 2 Color Sandals + Modern Accessories = One Summer Girl through and through

[Note: I realize 1 + 1 + 2 + X doesn’t equal 1, but for the sake of this fashion equation it does]

*Excuse any technical issues I’ve been having with this post.

I think my body has yet to adjust to these warmer temperatures, but I’m trying to catch up with some wardrobe modifications. I might have mentioned before how into printed pants I am for this S/S, and these high waisted drawstring pants with racing strips really satisfied my need to be a little bit hippie and stay cool when I could be melting outside. Also really happy to own these new sandals, have really been craving some lace-ups in whatever form I can get.

Style Tip: If you’re new to the printed pant trend, start with something simple, or in a more traditional color, to ease your way into full fledged obsession.

Hope your week is off to a great start!
