Layered Summer Style

Camel trench coat, silk Aritzia shirt, black skinny jeans, ankle bootsMonday! Time to kick off a whole new week. We’ve been so lucky with sunny weather over the past few weeks but are set for some rain this week, the kind of weather I actually don’t mind once in awhile even though I’m such a sunshine girl because I find these periods always come right when I need it. Right when I need to buckle down on some work I’m way behind on, get behind my laptop or even organize my space. Without sun distracting me (seriously, does anyone get intense anxiety about being inside when the sun’s shining?), I find I’m actually oddly more productive, not to mention it’s an opportunity to bring in some layered summer style. I’m all about the breezy summer dresses but a little nip in the air definitely allows for some of that effortless  cool that layering always brings.

I love playing around with neutrals to add some visual interest to my basics, like pairing the camel with the pearl grey of my silk tank and black.

And on that note, I’m down to tackle some work! What else are Mondays for, right? Hope you all have an amazing start to the week!

    You’re not alone in feeling that anxiety! I’m the exact same way. While I love the bright sunny days, I’m almost relieved if the weather takes a turn when I need to get stuff done.

    Love the way you do neutrals!

    I’ve been trying to figure out how you always get your jacket sleeves to stay scrunched up, but the buckles on this must do it! How do you do it on your wool and leather jackets though? Please share! Love your style xo
