Weekend Sparkle




We experienced a significant drop in temperatures over the weekend - with gray cloudy skies, thunderstorms & a cool breeze that's quite uncharacteristic for a usual NY summer.  So I decided on cozy layers paired with my most comfortable shorts + flats for a day of running errands.  When wearing an embellished piece like this, I recommend keeping accessories to a minimum & only accenting with simple silver jewelry.






What I'm wearing:
Old Navy Chambray Shirt, Forever 21 sweatshirt (similar savespend or splurge), Jennifer Lopez shorts (similar), C Label Hudson Flats, Zara bag (similar), c/o T+J Designs cuff (similar), Simply Vera Vera Wang aviators (similar), Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Cherish, Nails: Sally Hansen White On

That sweatshirt has a very JCrew vibe, I love it! And it has been much cooler in Ohio this past week or two also, which is strange for July/August but I am NOT complaining!
