The first few weeks of warm weather are my favorite; it isn’t too humid and I haven’t gotten a post-air conditioning electric bill. I hope everyone else is enjoying this springtime sweet spot as much as I am. I’ll be spending these next few weeks in blouses, booties, and cut-offs.
This outfit is from local boutique hazel2blue. I met the women behind hazel2blue right before it opened, and a gift from the brand was one of my earliest blog posts. This was my first trip to its brick-and-mortar location, and I loved it. The shop was perfectly sized with a curated selection and great prices. Plus, the drive to Alton was speedy and scenic; it’s just a hop, skip, and a bridge away from St. Louis, and there are a ton of other things to do (like, say, visit Old Bakery Beer) while you’re there.
Currently wearing… Black lace shoulder hi/low top by Umgee, c/o hazel2blue [HERE] | Article of Society shorts, c/o hazel2blue | State necklace by Adorn512, c/o hazel2blue | Bag by Rebecca Minkoff, Nordstrom Rack | Earrings, c/o Kendra Scott | Cuff, c/o Free People | Harding booties, c/o Naturalizer [HERE]
I love these distressed, loose Article of Society shorts paired with a flowy top; I almost always prefer loose clothing, but when the weather warms up I am entirely against anything tight. The fitted cap sleeves in the blouse give a bit of definition to the outfit, and I get to stay 100% comfortable. While wearing black. And looking springy. Yassss.
P.S. Head to hazel2blue this Friday (May 6, 2016) for a special Mother’s Day event! In collaboration with White Birch, the store is holding a Mother/Daughter Night Out complete with fashion show and drawings. Find out more on hazel2blue’s Facebook page.
