Back 2 Black

I told you I'd disappear for a few days! I'm currently posting up in Seattle airport waiting for my flight back to the East Coast. I'm riding out a caffeine buzz courtesy of Starbucks, in order to catch up on emails and blog work. 

My last outfit around here was bright and bold- if you didn't see it, pop here folks! But, sometimes going back to black is the secret to breaking away from standard summer whites and brights. Just make sure to keep it interesting with multiple textures and either some white or metallic on the shoe part. 

Just a tip: avoiding beating hot sun also makes summer darks much, much more bearable.

Oh, and Happy August! 

The Look: Nasty Gal top (also worn here), Madewell shorts, Vans sneakers (worn here), Angela Roi bag, Ray-Ban sunglasses

The Girl Wears Colour !

The girl wears colour! *Audience gasps!* 

Oddly enough, I've always been a sucker for a little orange action. It's one of the few colours you catch me sporting all year long; darker and brown-toned in the colder months, bold and bright all summer long. In addition to being in sweet orange, this top is a wearable fiesta. Anytime I slip this baby on- or the toned down white version- I  feel the need to pop some tunes in and dance the night away. 

I've come to garner a love of backstories when it comes to individual pieces. My California friend, Haley, was wearing this blouse during a Face-Time chat and I immeditly fell in love. The tops are from a small shop in Downtown LA and lo and behold, my sweet friend sent me two of them via the old fashion snail-mail. 

Just remember, off-the-shoulder tops bring and beat the heat during those scorchers! 

The Look: Off-the-shoulder top, Reformation jeans, Castañer wedges, Ray-Ban sunglasses

Full Circle

You might be shaking your head (rightfully so) and thinking to your tired, Monday self, does Sloane own any other clothes at this point? Considering my last post was dedicated to this beautifully deconstructed-constructed denim skirt, I understand if you are serious confused on why I've decided to show it again, um, one week later? 

To answer in the post matter of fact way, I'm just o to the b-e-s-s-e-d. Like the rest of the fashion-obsessed world, once I fall in love with an item, I continued to wear it until a) either disgustingly sick of it, b) it's ripped, or c) I begin to believe that others think I have one piece of clothing.  All valid options in the natural sartorial cycle. To be completely just, this time of natural shopping is not only money savvy, environmentally-friendly, but also breaks away from the heinous fast fashion cycle that our poor blogging world has become to know. 

I do promise though,after today's post, I'll introduce some variety back into my outfits here. Per example, I'm on the hunt for the silkiest, slinkiest slip dress I can get my hands on. So, perhaps that will become the denim skirt 2.0? 

 

The Look: Reformation denim skirt (last seen here), Sleepy Jones t-shirt, Vanessa Bruno bag, Vans sneakers, Ray-Ban sunglasses

On The Road Again...

Wearing: The Reformation dress, Madewell denim jacket, New Balance sneakers (more colors here)

A classic Sloane outfit of neutrals, denim, and sneakers (only missing some stripes....). Two layers of long sleeves seems slightly uncomfortable in the hot and humid city heat, but guess what kids?!

This girl is getting out of the heat once again. 

No, I'm not going to the Arctic. This weekend, I'll be road-tripping up to Camden, Maine with Lark Hotels. It will be my first time in Maine, so I cannot wait to explore the area. And you know it, layering works in Maine weather (well, according to weather.com)

indescribable

Wearing: Aritzia dress (size down) and  scarfValentino sandals

Considering I've already posted this exact outfit (and the dress) more than once on Instagram, I've decided not to bore you with basic photos. I know, I know, I'm too kind. Yet, I'm in love with these photos too much not to post them. I like to think that each photo has an emotion behind it that is able to pin-pointed, yet something about these gives me a feeling that is indescribable (even though it's me). And that my friends, is something we don't let waste on our desktop.
