summer shawls & muted tones




This weekend was extra busy for me and Porter with lots of shoots and DIY projects we were a little overconfident about. I find that the busier I am, the simpler I seem to dress. I’m most comfortable in subdued colors that are both classic and comfortable, so that’s what I went for this weekend. I also typically like to wear one thing that steps up an otherwise basic outfit and Saturday, it was a shawl.

 

I love shawls, they’re basically the equivalent of walking around in a socially-acceptable blanket and are somehow both simple and able to make a statement. For some reason, when someone walks by you with a shawl on, you mentally note it, even though if that same person were wearing a sweater of identical color and material it wouldn’t draw you in. I’m not exactly sure why that is, but shawl-wearers always seem to emanate a certain style confidence.

 

I’ve worn this little white top from Club Monaco at least two dozen times this summer; I’m already dreading tucking it away for fall.

 

Hope you enjoy the pics!
