Sunnies: Steve Madden (Macy's)
Blouse: American Apparel
Shorts: Forever 21
The original version of this outfit involved my blouse being tucked in & buttoned up higher. It also included a big, chunky necklace worn under my collar & a few other choice accessories. I loved the way it looked, but it was just too damn hot for all that nonsense, so before leaving for dinner, I made a last minute decision to simplify. I threw my hair up in a messy bun, removed all my accessories, untucked my blouse, and unbuttoned the top buttons. The overall effect of these changes was certainly more casual & less put-together, but it was also cooler & more comfy - a must for dinner outside on a hot summer night.
After dinner, eager to walk off our drinks & appetizers, we headed to Derby Wharf, where we walked along the water & watched a few neighborhood dogs play. Aren't they adorable?
