I usually struggle with dressing for summer. Without cardigans and layers, it becomes difficult to think of ways to be creative. This summer, though, I'm enjoying the simplicity of it. Ever since I started blogging regularly again this year, I've felt much more secure in my personal style. I wrote about this recently, but I don't feel the need to pile on accessories or skip over taking photos of outfits because they're "not interesting enough." I'm happy to say that I'm done putting that kind of pressure on myself. Now? A tank top, a skirt, and sandals will do. Add on one simple necklace made by a friend, and it's all that's needed to survive a hot summer day and be deemed "blog-worthy."
My eventful July starts today as I'll be spending the afternoon touring coffee shops in LA with my best friend before we see Jenny Lewis' new band, Nice As Fuck, play. I can't say that it's my favorite of her musical ventures, but when Whitney offered to buy us tickets for my birthday, I couldn't say no to seeing Jenny Lewis in concert again, regardless of what band she's playing under. She is the ultimate girl crush and basically all that I aspire to be. Sigh...
