An outfit featuring a nice mix of old and new. The sweater tank has been seen MANY times on the blog but I think it's time for a refresher for those that have missed the original story. My late Grandmother - Dad's Mom - made this sweater for my Mom many years ago, I would assume when I was a baby. She also made them for my 3 aunts. My Mom had two because she asked her to make a second in a white/cream color, she still has that one. It was passed on to me back in 2012 and became a Summer staple. I love that whenever I wear this sweater it brings me closer to her (she passed away right before I turned 13.)

 

These Zara shorts are also a pretty old item - bought in 2012. I'm pretty sure this is one of my most worn tank/short combos. They go so perfectly together. When paired with my new purple Prada Cahier the purple flowers on the shorts pop even more! 

 

You can never go wrong with a pair of Ancient Greek Sandals. This time I wore the Faye embellished sandal, a pretty apt choice now that I'm writing this blog post. My middle name is Faye, after my Grandmother who made the sweater! How funny that I chose this particular pair to wear. Must be a sign.

Whoops! Had a bit of a dry spell for posts there, didn't we? I've had a busy past few weeks and haven't had my usual weekends to take outfit photos.  For the 4th of July we went on our annual camping trip to Vermont and this past weekend we took a last minute trip to the beach in New Jersey with Christian's brother. We took photos a couple weekends ago but then the following week was crazy so Christian didn't have time to edit them.

 

I wore this to run a bunch of errands on a Saturday morning before heading to my parents to wash and wax my new car with Dad. Yep, huuuuge update! After 11 years I finally got a new (used) car! Long story short-ish: 

 

We downgraded to 1 car in May when Christian sold his to his brother for his niece. We planned on Christian getting a(n electric) car first, but the ones he want (also used) are insanely overpriced due to shortages so he's going to wait a few months to see if they go back to their true value.  My Cobalt is 16 years old so it's not the most spritley. We had to repair it last month so it would pass an emissions test. It's also going to need new tires so we don't want to drive it much to avoid any more costly repairs/etc.

 

I've been thinking about getting a Mini since my Mom got hers years ago but never though I would actually do it. I got super lucky and found a used 2018 in the color I wanted with super low mileage and had to do it! (I wanted a purple one but they haven't made Minis in the shade I want since 2005)


Sadly this means even less clothes shopping than I'm already doing since I have a car payment for the first time in my life...YIKES! (I got the Cobalt very cheap in 2010 without a loan.) Fingers crossed I can do a few big payments and pay it off early like I did with my student loans. I'm not a fan of debt so this is very weird for me.


Dress: Splendid Zebra Print Dress (NETAPORTER

Sandals: Malu c/o Marshalls

Apparently Splendid loved this print so much they made it in multiple pieces! I bought my Mom pants in this print for Mother's Day quite a few years ago, we've definitely twinned while on vacation. Shop a bunch I found below.

I planned a different first outfit post for the Prada Cahier, but we were lazy last weekend and didn't take any photos, so this look will have to do. Worn for a family gathering a couple weekends ago. I love how the little bits of purple in the camisole pop with the color of the purple Prada Cahier.

 

These IRO jeans are one of my favorite pairs for Summer because they're loose and the fabric is much more breathable than my skinny pairs. I will never give up my skinny jeans but I do embrace more styles. I've had them for 4 years now and they get more and more wears as the years go on.

 

Floral Camisole: eight sixty
