Because It’s Not Labor Day Yet

White pants FTW.

Okay, so the title of this post very clearly makes it seem like I don’t approve of wearing white after Labor Day. In reality, I’m all for it: If you want to wear white, wear white (except to someone else’s wedding, because that’s just rude…unless it’s a whole thing they’re doing where they turn their wedding into a white party and ask all of their guests to wear white, too…but I digress). So what’s up with the title? Well, I thought, “Hey, here’s a cheeky title for this blog post that’s partially about my white jeans,” so I used it. That’s it.

Anyway, onto the goods. True, Labor Day is next weekend, and true, that always makes it feel like summer and its warm temps are DONE, and true, I may be secretly harboring wishes for fall and Halloween, and lighting candles, and dressing cozily inside pretending that it is cool outside…but it’s not. Summer and, more specifically, summer weather, is still here and going strong. Which means outfits that involve things like white pants and tank tops and sandals are totally fair game. This summer, I really went back to basics. Aside from my new favorite graphic tees and tanks, I’ve worn almost exclusively solid colors. This outfit, which I wore on an extended weekend trip to Madeira Beach, Florida earlier this summer (okay, it was in April—I know, I know, it took me forever to post these pictures, bla bla bla), was a perfect storm of some of my favorite basics, old and new. I strongly feel like a good pair of white pants (I’ve had mine from Gap—most similar to these, I imagine—for at least three years), a good jean jacket, and a good pair of sandals that can be dressed up or down, are essential to any summer wardrobe. And this look, I believe, is case in point.

I got these sandals last summer, and they remain one of the best shoe purchases I’ve ever made. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worn them, dressed up, dressed down, and everywhere in between. I can’t find this exact style anywhere now, but these ones (both Steve Madden) are almost exactly the same, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you like easy, versatile footwear, girl, get these.

I say, why do a boring, awkward, I’m-taking-pictures-for-my-blog pose every time, when you can dance instead?

Really digging split back tanks for a little pizzazz.

Fun fact: Looking down is a great way to differentiate your outfit photos.

100% pointing out dolphins. They were really there. And I was obsessed.
