Shift Into Summer

dress: Kiel James Patrick (no longer available, also love this version) // sweater: L.L.Bean (old, current version here) // shoes: Castaner // bag: Kiel James Patrick (old) // bracelet: Kiel James Patrick (old, similar here) // sunglasses: Karen Walker (on sale!) // Penn necklace: Kyle Cavan

After returning for summer break, I've found myself shifting back into my "normal" style. In college, I wore athleisure waaaay more often than I had before, just because it was comfortable and suited my lifestyle. There's absolutely nothing wrong with changing up your style to fit with your day-to-day life, I noticed that putting together a "real outfit" on the weekends instantly made me happy. Now that I'm back home and my daily activities aren't walking to/from class and studying, I'm wearing my old favorite outfits on the daily.

One of those go-to combinations is a classic shift dress, with a crewneck sweater to layer in the AC. On the day I shot these pictures, I wore a new second-hand addition to my wardrobe: this "Where Do You Summer?" striped shift from Kiel James Patrick. Add a fisherman sweater (mine is from L.L.Bean) and you have the perfect summer combo. I paired the look with another summer purchase - Castaner wedges. I've been eyeing espadrilles for the longest time, but I knew I wanted to invest in a pair from Castaner because I love the history and craftsmanship of the brand. I finally invested in this neutral tan pair and I love them! Despite being wedges, they're one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own and I couldn't be happier with them.
