Normally when I wear cardigans I keep them unbuttoned but this cardigan is on the shorter side so I decided to button it all the way up and wear it as a top. I think I like it better this way. I wore this when the temperatures were still pretty mild but warm enough to wear sandals. The pom poms on these went with the sweater so well so I couldn't resist pairing them together. I'm still HORRIBLE at tying these and am always stepping on the tassels.

This month I had a big chunk of advertising (and side hustle) money burning a hole in my pocket. I used a LOT of self control and only made one purchase with it - an order from Abercrombie during their Labor Day sale. I'm hoping to save the rest of it to pay for my portion of an airbnb for London this New Years! But who knows, something crazy may catch my eye and I'll be badddddd.

This was the third and final time I wore these Karen Walker sunglasses. They're really fun but definitely a statement piece and I prefer my more subdued pairs, even if they are tortoise print they're a little calmer. But that's the great thing about Ditto's Endless Eyewear. It let's you play around with styles you wouldn't normally gravitate toward. Use code CLOSETFASHIONENDLESSDITTO for your first month free!

Funnily enough, these sunglasses aren't the craziest thing about my outfit. These pom pom sandals have been getting me quite a few weird looks, but who cares, they're fun! A woman at Target looked very confused by them, ha ha.

*Soma gifted the sandals featured in this post, but all opinions are my own.*

I'm a little (fashionably) late to this trend, but when Soma Footwear asked if I wanted to style a pair of their leather shoes I decided on these pom-pom sandals which have been everywhere this Summer! Better late than never, right? I considered a pair of their ADORABLE printed or beaded ballet flats but in the end I decided to keep Summer fun going a bit longer with the sandals. Each piece, like art, is exclusive and hand embroidered/hand sewed so you know what you're getting is special.

Soma has reinvented the traditional shoe to embody a mix of East and West fashion style identities, with special attention given to comfort and quality. They source high quality leather and have superior stitching by craftsmen who have been in this field for generations. Soma has pioneered the art of incorporating traditionally worn footwear into mainstream contemporary fashions with their vibrant colors, elegant curves, impeccable finish, and commitment to quality.

When these arrived one of the tassels on the ties had fallen off, luckily I was able to just snap it back on. I've found that they're prone to popping off, so you may want to reinforce with a dab of glue.  I might sew mine on to really prevent them from slipping. I'm also horrible at tying things, so forgive the poorly done knots, haha! I'll get better eventually!
