I apologize for being away from social media and my blog the past few days. At my school, the junior class does a three-day retreat where we are given the chance to unplug from digital media and our phones, which are normally attached to our hands and glued to our eyes. Never in a million years would I think I would enjoy being away from technology, but it was incredibly refreshing and rejuvenating to not be checking my accounts, texts, emails throughout the day. As you all know, I speak the truth around here, so I truly, truly recommend doing a digital detox for a few hours, a day, or a weekend. Whatever floats your boat. 

Now, we must work through the photo overflow and backed-up blogposts I have in store. To begin on Christmas Eve, my family and I went across Biscayne Bay over to the Key Biscayne Lighthouse. I love, love visiting lighthouses; even more so when you are able to go the top (always in search of that killer view). Key Biscayne Lighthouse has 360 views of Miami from the infamous last houses of Stiltsville aka the OG Floridian Hippy Dream to the beaches of Key Biscayne, downtown Miami in the distance, and Coconut Grove across the bay. 

For those who are interested in visiting, it costs $10 to park your car, which gives you complete access to roam the park, visit the lighthouse, take a dip, or whatever you please.

Since I was coming right from the water, I kept my get-up super simple with my favorite cutoff shorts, an Outdoor Voices crop, paired with an oversized, white Reformation tee over... obviously not shown here. I hope you also excuse my messy, salty hair. When in doubt, embrace the ocean's free of charge 'do. 

 

Down by The Dock

Finally sharing some photos from my Hamptons trip a few weekends back. With my former computer hitting the fan, I am up and running once again with some new technology and fresh mindset post-Thanksgiving break. 

Keeping it short and sweet today since the Monday back after a holiday is always a rough one.

Go forth and drink some coffee, kids. 

Wearing: Reformation dress (similar), Asos coat, Asos boots (under $100), Ray-Ban folding sunglasses

Sneak Attack

In the midst of a sneak attack dosage of summer in the Northeast, why not pull a look out of my lost image archive? Featuring the nouveau way of tying a men's button down... talk about kicking traditional out the door. I'd recommend playing around with the button-down, knot here and there, the possibilities are endless for sartorial success. 

 

On another note, Autumn, come back, come back, wherever you are. 

Wearing: J.Crew men's button down, Reformation jeans, Madewell loafers- here, here, and here are some similar pairs, Ray-Ban sunglasses

Meet The Red Mini

2016_09_10_SailingSeaStyle1-173-Edit.jpg

Meet the red miniskirt, it's the denim skirt's flirtatious cousin.  A little bit foxy, but also hella classic. The rusty color screams Autumn weekends frolicking away or brunching on a busy sidewalk street... whatever is your preferred cup of tea. The OG denim skirt isn't disappearing for good, but the sassy and superstar cousin is taking center stage for the time being.

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?
