Cool for the Summer {+ Labor Day Weekend Sales!}


So even though it won’t actually feel like fall in Charleston until Thanksgiving, probably, we technically say farewell to summer this weekend. That means I can squeeze in one last summer post before Labor Day, right? My goodbye summer outfit features some of my favorite seasonal trends – a Panama hat, mirrored sunnies, an off the shoulder top, and denim cutoffs. So before we delve into chunky sweaters, leather booties, and felt hats (okay, did anyone else just get really excited for fall clothes?!), let’s pretend summer never has to end.




I’m sure y’all recognized this top right away from the one and only Chiara Ferragni. She wore this floral off the shoulder top with its matching skirt at Coachella, and I was astonished (I’m dramatic) when I found out it was H&M. A couple months ago, I came across this top in a corner of the H&M outlet at Tanger for like $5, so clearly I went for it. Anything to be more like Chiara, amirite y’all? I paired the top with my go-to cutoff Levi’s (made from vintage mom jeans by yours truly!), a Panama hat, and these incredible rockstud sandal dupes for the perfect ~cool for the summer~ look.



To accessorize, I once again opted for my tortoise mirrored sunnies, then kept the rest minimal with my Daniel Wellington watch, a dainty Moon & Lola bracelet, and a few midi rings.




Summer, it’s been fun. Fall clothes and weather (please no more 100 degree days), I’m ready for ya.
