A Casual Shadow

My summer essentials have become my denim jacket, tote bag, and this little fedora. The hat and jacket are only occasionally possible in this heat, but I like the sort of casual vibe they add to an outfit. I've never really thought of it before, but I do really like my summer outfits to feel a little less pulled-together and proper than my fall/winter ones. There's just something about summer that calls for things to appear relaxed--even when they aren't!

  6. You belong on a boat on the Riviera or Thames or Danube or something, having a band serenade you as you drink a juice or cocktail (I know you don't generally drink, right?), with your hair flipping in the lazy wind and your face getting spray from the river.

    Something serene and relaxed like this gorgeous outfit.

  18. Okay, please explain to me how your hair still looks good in the summer! It must not be very humid where you are now.

  20. @Mallory, actually we've had like 75% humidity (wish I was kidding). my hair looks frizzy to me in these pics, but it is naturally very straight hair, so it never changes too much.
