Summer Ain’t Over Yet

Gurl, put down that pumpkin spice latte: Labor Day may be behind us, but we still have a few weeks of sweet summertime left! Fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd, and since I spent the last two months wearing the same clothes from a limited capsule wardrobe, I’m going to bring out my summer stuff for as long as I can. (Plus, it’s still seventh-ring-of-Hades-hot in Florida — and you can see by my poofy just-washed hair that the summer humidity is still a thing — so it’s easy to delay the fall vibes for a little while longer.) I bought this Old Navy dress sometime around the end of spring, and it may be the most comfortable dress I own; I mean it’s basically a cotton mumu. Which is perfect for the day after a three-day weekend, because 1.) I ate a week’s worth of Weight Watchers points in two days, and 2.) If I must drag myself to work after a break, I may as well do it in something that feels like pajamas. …

Final Four

Remix #27 of 30 :: black silk dress + drape vest + nude stiletto sandals I don’t have much time to write today; I have a cooler full of hydrangeas and roses that I have to whip into bridal designs for a wedding and a bucket of sunflowers to drop into mason jars for an event downtown, and I want to breeze through it all so I can get a jump start on the weekend. If you’re interested in behind-the-scenes stuff around the flower shop, you can follow me on Snapchat or Instagram — both ‘keiralennox’ — to see what it’s like to run around like a headless chicken/be a florist. {wink} Happy Friday, friends!

Summer Scarf

Remix #26 of 30 :: roll-sleeve shirt + dark skinnies + stacked heel sandals One of the risks of a small seasonal capsule wardrobe is occasional clothes casualties. Two of my pieces didn’t survive the 30 for 30: I wore my cropped jeans to help with a downtown volunteer project after work and splattered them in red paint; and I washed my black cropped pants in an effort to shrink them a bit, but just faded them instead.  Thank goodness we’re nearing the end, because with my track record of accident-prone clumsiness I’d probably be out of clothes by the end of next month. Since my bottom options are dwindling and I don’t want to wear my denim cut-offs to work, I’ll have to get a little creative with my remixes over the next few days. This morning I reached into the farthest dark abysses of my closet to find my neglected scarf collection, and pulled out the very lightest linen one I own to zhush up a plain white blouse and skinnies.

Almost There!

Remix #25 of 30 :: olive wrap-front top + white ankle skinnies + suede ballet flats I’ve had a lot of fun with this summer 30 for 30 remix challenge — so much, in fact, I’m thinking of doing a fall version in October! — but I’m ready to wrap it up and let these white ankle skinnies hibernate for a while.

Double Denim

  Remix #23 of 30 :: denim jacket + dark skinnies + texture knit tank + stacked heel sandals Kids went back to school last week, and like every year around this time, it feels like someone flipped a switch on our slow summer pace and lit up the flower shop with orders, weddings and events. I would really like to wrap up my summer 30 for 30 remix by the end of next week, but I’ll probably keep posts short and sweet as I savor these last few weeks of sweet summertime — I’m so sad to see it go! — and get adjusted to the upswing at work. It always takes a minute to shake off the summer lazies and get back in the swing of things. ;)
