Summer Style

fashion5fashion1fashion3fashion6fashionfashion2

This summer I am trying to attain a style that is classic, minimalist, muted, and breezy.  I am particularly loving linen, jean, khaki, and cotton fabrics.  These are a few of the images that have been inspiring to me this last week.

Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.
– Oscar de la Renta

Fashion is only the attempt to realize art in living forms and social intercouse.

– Sir Francis Bacon

What is your style this summer?

Just looking back – one of my favorite gifts that I received for Christmas (not including my wonderful Filson bag) was Volume Five of Kinfolk magazine.

Magazine is probably not quite the right word for such a lovely compilation of photos and essays, beautifully designed, and printed on the loveliest thick paper!  It is really more of a book, not only by its looks but by its feel!

Are you beginning to understand now just how much I love it?

I’ll probably be going on many walks and bike rides with this in my Filson bag.

Saturday!

Have a lovely weekend!

Summer Is Almost Over

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guess what!  Summer is almost over!  How sad is that!  Admittedly I love “school”, but sitting in the sun, drinking lemonade, just relaxing . . . I am going to miss it!  I just need to think about hot coca and tea, cable knit sweaters, and reading in Latin.  Enjoy those last few days!

I found all the pictures on Pinterest.

 

Ruche

 

 

I love these vintage inspired clothes by Ruche.  I spotted them on This Modern Romance.

Katie Ermilio

I normally don’t post on fashion but I loved some of the looks from Katie Ermilio‘s new Spring/Summer collection.

These are some of my favorites, but I would take all of them!  Enjoy!
