the details
jacket - thrifted 
shirt - Forever 21
skirt - c/o Modcloth
bag- c/o ONA
shoes - c/o Blowfish Shoes

It's been so hot lately (okay, I swear I'll stop mentioning it after this but seriously - miserable heat!) that getting dressed up nice has been that last of my concerns. This heat makes just one of a million reasons I'm very happy to work from home, no one cares what I wear here!  Luckily last week there was one nice day where Kevin and I were actually able to go outside and enjoy ourselves. I even got to wear my jean jacket for a little while despite the fact I certainly didn't need to. (I took it off after about fifteen minutes!) It felt so good to wear nice clothes as opposed to the shorts and tshirts I've been sporting around the house the last few days. It's amazing how just putting on something you feel great in can make you feel awesome all around!

I love this skirt, it's lightweight and a great length but what really makes it for me is the fact that the bottom panel matches the blue in my hair (errr, well it did on this day. I've already dyed my hair!) I just think that looks so cool. The only downfall is that it's wrinkle prone! I ironed it right before we left the house and after a twenty minute car ride it was already pretty wrinkly.

Well, I hope you're having a fabulous day. I have to do some last minute chores, and get some work done before my best friend gets here tomorrow to stay the week. I'm so very excited for this week. It's going to be a blast.
xoxo

  1. oh you look fabulous, Kaylah! I love this outfit with different shades of blue (that skirt is fantastic!!), I remember one post a long time ago you did only with shades of green... I can't help but loving these monochromatic outfits :)

    1. Ehhh, non-stop rain isn't really ideal either! I just want some warm weather that isn't too humid.

  4. You matched not only your hair with that bottom panel, but your toenail polish too! Colour me impressed (har har har). It's been too hot in Ontario too, and I've never been much of a shorts gal either. This year has seen me come around on that though, thanks to some patterned shorts that make me feel pretty cool in temperature and...temperament? Whatever, it's pretty golden either way!

    I love you fashion sense! It inspired me to go out and buy some different types of clothes. I got a skirt that is just past knee length in the back and a bit shorter in the front, and its covered in flowers of different colors and its the color of the bottom of your skirt in this picture! Keep posting your awesome outfits!
