I hope all my American readers had a great Independence Day! I spent mine with my family having a barbeque and eating too much food. Summer calls for simple outfits. This was a cooler day so I was able to wear jeans and my sweater without being too hot or cold.  So far this Summer hasn't been very hot, but I'm probably jinxing it.  I wouldn't mind it staying in the 80s the next few months, but I know we'll get up to the high 90s eventually and I will die.

Everyone ready for the long weekend? This is what I wore last weekend to do some shopping and have lunch with Lydia and Christine! We headed to New Haven and visited Vintanthromodern where I picked up a suede jacket I first tried on 14 weeks ago (according to Instagram) And yes, I cheated and didn't put this in my wardrobe update post because this is such a random purchase not related to the season at all. After we shopped we had lunch at a Thai restaurant. It was my first time having it so I was a little nervous, I'm a VERY picky eater. But it was pretty good!

And yes, the post title is a reference to Bob Seger's Mainstreet (love this song!)

Yes, I'm wearing this sweater AGAIN. What did I tell you? I love it! But I've shown it three different ways, with a skirt, with white jeans and now with blue jeans. This is how I wear it most often, super simple. I will try not to post it again for a while, but I make no promises!

Sweater: Club Monaco (Clinton Crossing Premium Outlet), Jeans: FRAME 'Le Skinny de Jeanne' (Shopbop),  Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Clio' (Nordstrom), Bag: Etienne Aigner (thrifted)

I bought this skirt with a gift card back in April at the Clinton Crossing shopping event.  It's a size XL but it was only $6 and I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket. I haven't had my Mom make the waist smaller so in these photos I'm wearing it dangerously low on my hips (with shorts underneath). If it was the proper size I have a strong feeling it would be WAY too short on me, so I guess it was a blessing in disguise that they didn't have my size. Ha ha.

I only bought three things this month, one was some navy sandals I've been needing for my Summer wardrobe, the second some new denim shorts and the third a ring while on vacation. Not too bad! The sandals were a bit of a splurge but I was having trouble finding a perfect pair of navy sandals.
