Caramel (See Jane Wear)

Zara top (worn here), Anthropologie shorts, Old Navy scarf, Bakers oxfords, Chloe bag, Ray Ban sunglasses
A simple outfit for not so simple weather.  It's been up and down and all over the map here in Chicago.  This day  in particular was absolutely gorgeous and reminded me of a perfect day in LA--little humidity, not too hot, not too cold, and a bit of a chill when the sun goes down.  When I lived in LA for a summer a few years back, scarves at night were my best friend.  Even if I was out and about all day in the hot California sun, I knew once the sun fell that the chill would get me.  I guess you can't take the hot, mid-western summers out of the girl, eh?

Such a pretty look! The brogues and dotted tee are darling. And the scarf makes the perfect Cali evening accessory.

Loving the look lady. I am so glad to see I am not the only one who wears oxfords in the summer. I love them with shorts and dresses, specially on a not so hot day.

I really love neutral color combos--and I feel the same about scarves! So cozy.

Nikki said...

Polka dots are so fantastic! I love your take on it with neutrals as a base. The oxfords are so classic, too!
