outfit post: Overall, A Good Day

 Some days are just solid. Nothing too extraordinary, but not dull either. This was one of those days and I dressed appropriately. It's hot, hot, summertime hot in Sacramento. August is doing the usual prep for our annual and predictable "Indian Summer," which seems to last nearly to October. 
California comfort includes jean overalls, and a vintage sun hat.
The aim was to dress simply and rationally- I let my accessories do all the talking. That included two beaded cuffs purchased at Scout Living for a song, if the song happens to be titled "10 bucks each." And please enjoy my newest favorite sun hat purchased last weekend at the Fringe LOT SALE- it's a This N That Thrift and Gift score, and the hat was got for one dollar.

Dressing for comfort doesn't mean you skimp on style.

It is slowly cooling down here. That is that we are in the 30s rather than 40s; although still very hot.
Loving your ensemble and adoring your hat and accessories.
Mil besos, my dear Bella.

i really love this outfit. i have been wanting to pull off overalls but my shape makes them look awkward. the shorts work bc it's much less denim- and awesome accessories. it was a pretty gorgeous day in san fran as well, i didnt even have to button my coat! hehe

I'd hate to have summer weather well into October. Glad I don't!

Loving the hat (which is a major score for 1 BUCK!!!).

Those fabulous accessories do plenty of talking! Love that finger candy. I'm melting here in Tampa. SO ready for cooler weather!

Not everyone can make overalls look as cute as you do! I'm impressed!

Miss Peregrin said...

Absolutely loving the overalls! You've styled them so beautifully. I'm also pretty jealous of your hat collection.

Heather Fonseca said...

We've been hit with a big heat wave currently. I'm spending my days in shorts and lightweight blouses. It's not very interesting. Sigh.

Sofia loves her overalls btw!

As usual you look fantastic. I cant tell you how much I want a pair of those overalls!Not that I could wear them like that here (without tights and a sweater) since we dont actually get an indian summer... or in fact a summer at all. sigh. Im just going to have to live vicariously through you then! :)
