the softer side.

free people oversize button down shirt; H&M garden collection bow belt shorts; H&M lace bra and black stone ring; forever 21 socks, chain bracelet, and watch; chrishabana triple spike necklace; marc by marc jacobs pyramid stud bracelet; hammered knuckle ring, claw ring, and cross ring; zara bag; nine west sandals (very old).

indiana is heating up fast - thursday it got up to 84°F, woah (and i layed out, can't you tell?). it's like we have decided to skip spring in favor of summer. and truthfully, i kind of dread dressing for spring and summer. i'm more of a layers/jeans/dark colors/boots kinda girl; i always get stuck trying to figure out what to wear on hot, humid days, and then normally go for a shirt-and-shorts combination.
but there are so many new ways to update my summer silhouette, ways that still match my personal style (like these spring trends). now i'm feeling a lot less dreadful, and a little more excited.

this is what i like to call the softer side of caylee, hehe. barely any black!
it's all about having fun with fashion, yet staying true to yourself.

Robyn said...

It IS hard to dress during the summer; layers definitely make it easier to switch things up and make old outfits look fresh and new, and obviously those aren't summer options. I love how you've done it here, though, and I REALLY love that Free People shirt. I love oversized button downs that flow- beautiful!

Following you on bloglovin' btw. :)

studdedhearts - lol, ok! =)

fashion drift, glamour bbey, fashion snag, star-light, zepequena - thank you!

cille - you should definitely get them. they're pretty and soft and flattering =)

robyn - exactly. but i'm the kind of person who doesn't mind wearing the same kinds of things everyday, so shorts and some sort of oversized/tee top like this one are likely to be my summer uniform!

stilettostetico - thank you!

alejandra - thank you =) and i did get some color! i don't like being too dark, so i probably won't be laying out again for a while, haha.

melissa - don't you love them?! thank you!

the fashion cloud - thank you! i think they could be worn either up high on the natural waist, or down on your hips, but i bought them in a smaller size so i could wear them higher.

evitame, the cheeky girl, melanie m, paulina - thank you!
