Aqua & Orange End-of-Summer Fit // What I Wore


I feel like I have been waiting all summer to wear this floral shirt, and I finally found the perfect outfit for it. It also helps that the weather is becoming more pleasant as the days pass. I’ve had my windows open for two days straight now, which feels nice, letting in the cool breeze. The heat definitely limits what I’m comfortable wearing, so it was nice to finally wear some of my cutest pieces.


I was blessed to acquire these jeans. They are vintage St. John’s Bay, originally a size 16, but now about a 10/12. They came from a friend of my grandma’s, and were skillfully taken in about a half an inch and somehow fit me almost perfectly. Along with these, I have a pink pair, which you’ll definitely see in a future look.

Together, the jeans and shirt are a fantastic match, as the orange jeans coordinate with the orange flowers in the shirt. I also LOVE this combo of sherbet orange and aqua blue. The flower print is so precious As the kids say these days, “It’s the flower print for me.” Five big fabric buttons go down the front. It is by the brand Talbots and is also vintage, but this one I picked up at the thrift store within the last year.

For today’s look, I left the shirt open because it was still pretty warm in the sun. The baby pink tank top I’m wearing is actually a thin slip dress that came with another dress. I tucked it into my pants, and I now had the “little shirt, big pants” trend going on, which is super cute. With the faux tank, I was able to take off the blue shirt if I got too hot.

I know these shoes were in my previous outfit post,  but come on, they are too cute. Unfortunately, part of the straps seem to be breaking, so I’ll have to find some way to fix them because these are my favorite summer shoe for when I want to dress a look up a bit. They also match my new little dumping bag! 



I’m so excited about this piece that I picked up at Kohl’s last week. I’ve been admiring dumpling bags for a little while. To me, they look so lush and soft and stylish.  Whether or not this bag qualifies as one, it definitely has a similar style. This one is by the brand Elizabeth & James. I love the acrylic tortoise shell handles, which contrast the caramel-colored vegan leather body of the bag. It also comes with a removable, adjustable strap. I’m a big fan of this small bag, and I love how it can keep up with such a colorful outfit.

I really love this look because it is brightly colored and includes some of my favorite vintage pieces. The look feels a bit more like the beginning of summer than it does the end of it, but I’m trying to wear at least a few of my summery short-sleeved tops before summer officially ends.

If you like the floral, gardener-esque vibe of this look, keep an eye out for my next post, which is going to be all about cottagecore fashion!
