Gracey Wears: Summer Faves

The weather has been absolutely beautiful here in Western PA this past week.  As a result, I haven’t much wanted to give up wearing my summer faves.

Nor have I had to.  I mean, I’m still running around in short-sleeve chambray tunics:

And I’m still pairing those chambray tunics with white denim leggings:

(I know, I know, I clutched my own pearls even as I was putting them on).

It’s not that I’m not looking forward to wearing my Fall clothes (okay, I’m mostly just looking forward to wearing tall boots).  But, for now, I’m thrilled the weather is allowing me to continue to wear my summer faves with only a scarf for added warmth. read more

This is before the BIG snow hit, but you can see the first blobs of white in the background. I wore this for a party that included a screening of the undeniably trippy Star Wars Holiday Special, which aired in 1978. Imagine 10-minute stretches with nothing but Wookie dialogue consisting of grunts and howls, psychedelic dance sequences, and Princess Leia singing. Also Bea Arthur singing. Also lots of other weirdness all in the name of the Wookie Christmas equivalent, Life Day. It was a blast. read more

Casual Outfit Roundup: Week of May 29

Chambray dress, Gap (no longer available) – similar
Belt, thrifted – similar
Perforated boots – BC Footwear In The Mood
Faux coral necklace, self-made – similar

I generally try to mix my Western influences with more urban ones, but this outfit just worked as full cowgirl.

Also it’s a little funny to me that two weeks ago the roundup featured a tunic/jeggings/flats on Friday, and perforated boots/denim on Saturday. Clearly, I’m a creature of habit. read more
