Orange County Girls

August 23, 2012

 Shoppalu pieces: heels (c/o), silk blouse (sold out but similar pieces on sale at STYLE/STALK!)

Other pieces: vintage denim shorts and bag

Poshlocket pieces: Maci Silver Scratch Drop earrings ($24 US), Acadia Greaves ring ($25 US)
This is the second to last out of my lookbook posts! This orange silk top from Shoppalu (which was on sale at STYLE/STALK but appears to be sold out – don’t worry though, tons of other great blouses still on sale!) was such a perfect piece for the point in the summer that I shot it. It had been absolutely steamy hot outside and every day was basically a challenge to figure out how to dress in a way that wouldn’t melt you down by noon. This top’s light weave and punchy colour made it perfect for that. I’ve always been someone who prefers heat over cold, but I think I really acclimatized to the ridiculous summer heat here way too much because since it’s started cooling down, I find I wake up in the middle of the night shaking almost every other night (and then I throw a cashmere sweater on). Freakyyyy.
Also wearing these two sleek and modern pieces from my Poshlocket lookbook – the lovely Sarah of Lipstick and Ruffles (who was a guest blogger here while I was away in Maui!) is their next lookbook star, so be sure to check it out!
Hope you all have a happy Thursday!
