>21! Let’s Celebrate.


Express Cardigan (sale, $15)
LOFT denim pencil skirt (sale, $25)

Jessica Simpson Platforms
Nine West sunnies (Beall’s Outlet, $10)

Let’s toast to two things: my 21st post in Summer Style Bootcamp, and the fact that I finally have some new sunglasses! Two months ago, I had at least 5 pair of really cute sunnies, and one by one they disappeared or were damaged beyond repair by my negligence (throwing them willy-nilly into my handbag, sitting on them in the car, putting them on top of my head where they almost always take a precarious fall to the floor and then are often stepped on, etc.). My last pair of beloved cheap aviators succumbed to a similar fate last weekend. Moment of silence please…
While I’d really love to have a collection like The Glamourai or Sterling Style, I’m clearly not responsible enough for such fine eyewear. I also can’t get away with no sunnies at all, since I live in the sunshine state and have light eyes that are ridiculously sensitive to the rays. 
So I went to Beall’s Outlet this afternoon and splurged on five pair for $30 — including an aviator replacement. I know I’m not supposed to be shopping, but I feel like sunglasses don’t count. And technically, my shopping bootcamp ended in July. And {Rambles on excuses}

Recreate It:
The items here would all be great staples for fall!
LOFT Drapey Denim Pencil Skirt (I actually like this version better than mine) $49.50
EXPRESS Long Sleeve Rhinestone Button Cardi (a perfect layering piece for fall) $49.50
Jessica Simpson Landen Slingback Pump (on sale at Piperlime!) $59.99
