sometimes, simplicity is all you need for a great outfit. a silk blouse, a comfy pair of blue jeans and block-heeled shoes are the components to today’s ootd. this retro print silk button-down was recently purchased for a palm beach getaway that’s fast approaching. stay tuned to details of the entire wardrobe that will find its way inside my suitcase. this silk button-down with its vibrant colors is perfect for florida where summer never ends. but here in georgia, it will transition from summer to fall with ease thanks to its fanciful print and long sleeves. 

it’s time to bring my denim out from storage. hooray! this pair of distressed boyfriend jeans was last seen on our trip to Europe. but i’m thinking they may meet an early retirement as the fit seemed a bit loose this time around. thoughts? the funny thing about consistent workouts is you know you’re making progress, but when you look in the mirror day after day you pretty much look the same. it’s not until you wear something from the previous season that reality kicks in. aha, those gym sessions really are making a difference!

today i bopped into Agora Vintage while mr. style had his haircut downtown. guess what came home with me? a new (old) pair of Chanel sunglasses. who could resist this vibrant shade of pink? many readers ask questions about second-hand or consignment shops. so if you love vintage clothes, shoes, handbags or jewelry check out their Instagram page as they showcase new items daily. Agora Vintage always has a fabulous selection of handbags – Chanel and Louis Vuitton in particular.

some bling is added for good measure today. this retro blouse demanded a pop of gold. come to think of it, the suede pumps did too.

    Love the outfit! And, I do agree, your workouts are working! who doesn’t love a new pair of jeans, especially in a SMALLER size. Big Win! Got to ask– how in the world are you getting your hair so straight with all the humidity??? Please let me in on your secret. I’m struggling over here on the east coast of North Carolina.

      lately, i’ve been using Alterna Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter. it’s part of their caviar anti-aging products. xo

    Love your accessories with this outfit! And special shout-out to Mr. Style for his color composition, interesting angles, and visual texture such as the peeling utility pole, which adds such a delightful counterpoint to your gorgeous ensemble. You both knocked this fashion shoot out of the park!
