Graphic

I think this is one of my last shots from my old place – turns out I had more of a back log of them than I had thought! Anyways, this is actually a look from late May (yeah, I’m that far behind apparently). A dear friend of mine graduated with his doctorate and we all got together to toast his success over pizza and wine. This is what I wore to said pizza party (at which I was extremely disappointed to discover that TMNT were not in attendance).





graphic top: F21 / leggings: Target / loafers: Gap / blazer: H&M


As the summer temperature in New Haven continue to climb, I’m drawn to loose fitting and summery cool skirts in bold and playful colors. These Zara ones are perfect…now I just have to hope that I can thrift something similar!

That is a great graphic top. I can't believe I missed buying it. Great outfit!

I wasn't sure about long skirts but those look so awesome, but I'm on my own buying ban.

I love graphic dresses. I wish that I wore them more. I honestly don't know why I don't ... LAME NUTS.
P.S. I would only attend a pizza party if TMNT were in attendance.

I like those skirts. Loose clothes are definitely appealing when it is hot out.

That is an extremely cute top/dress with the leggings--how does it feel to look at those pics from the old place. Does your hair want to light on fire just a little?

oooh details.

and ps-purple skirt.

I'd forgotten how good a graphic print can look but you just reminded me! The boyfriend blazer is perfect with it

hurricanekerrie said...

The top looks wonderful! And those Zara skirts look stunning... I want a Zara near me.

Late May? My goodness! I feel weird if I post a photo from a few days ago, haha.
I do love that graphic tunic and I think a bright skirt would be a great summer addition to your closet!

Chic on the Cheap

I'm actually hardcore digging your top. It is very artistic and right up my alley.

Marie a la Mode said...

I love the print of your dress! And the colorful maxi skirts, I've been wearing maxi skirts and dresses all summer. They're much more comfortable than pants!

julia said...

Love it, Amazing :)

Pretty tunic!

I've been dreaming of a long skirt this summer, but haven't made the splurge just yet. These are great!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

i really would love to get my hands on that top. the intricate design is amazing.

Jessica Weingarten said...

I love the print of that blouse! Those loafers are fantastic as well.

I love those maxi skirts, but I always seem to look like some sort of wannabe-Amish convert when I wear them! It's strange because I look decent in a maxi dress. I guess it's just the division of a top and a skirt...

Empress said...

ohh the long skirt + tee is a great easy look, makes anyone look 10 feet tall!

Really like this outfit. Especially the cuffs on the cardi add a nice touch. I love the maxi skirt too. I cruised online and found a great one for $5!! That's unheard of in this country! ps. Have I ever mentioned how much I love your header/banner? It's dreamy.
