It’s September, so it’s perfect that temperatures this week are reach the hundreds here in Southern California. Ok, not really. I’m still dreaming of buttery, leather pants, cozy knit sweaters and a stupidly awesome amount of layers. I’m thinking Free People Fall Lookbook while the weather is just tempting me to quit my job and become a mermaid. I’m trying to find a compromise because I just don’t think the whole mermaid gig is really going to work out. This look is just that — a fashion compromise. A flowy maxi with some sliders is perfect for every day of summer while a wool, wide-brim hat and all black is just so appropriate for the cooler months. If this is the outcome, we’re ok with compromising. For now at least.

Panama and Prints in Palm Springs

A wide-brim, panama hat and silky, Hawaiian printed dress seemed like the perfect combination for a little getaway to Palm Springs. And functional, surprisingly. The brim of the hat shades my face from the suns harsh rays while the dresses thin material is cool enough for the scorching, desert heat. Paired with my new Forever 21 booties (yes, Forever. They just look so much more designer than that), it’s the perfect outfit for a night under the stars and California palm trees.

You’ve got that tummy, but this isn’t the time to flaunt it. Normally, a crop top wouldn’t be work appropriate, but by layering a crop top over a basic, white tee, you’ve created an outfit is so ready for the office.
