Dressing up a T-Shirt

I have had this shirt in my closet for months, but I was facing a styling block because my mind had so many visions on how to wear it. Well, sometimes you have to start somewhere and that good starting point is pairing it with jeans and heels.

To make the look more interesting and fun, I layered a polka dot blazer and striped purse in the same black and white color scheme that both tied in well. Instead of completing the look with a boring black shoe, I wore these gold babies that have quickly become my favorites! Off I went to meet up with my fellow San Diego blogger DaintyJea for some coffee and good conversation.

Good bye August, Hello September!

I'm in denial that Summer is almost over and my sandal days are counted, nevertheless I'm excited to transition to Fall boots and chunky knits. My reign as the DownEast Basics stylist of the month is over, BUT I have extremely exciting news that I can't wait to share with you later this month (hint: I'll be doing some styling for one of my favorite stores).

Looking through my August outfits I can't help but notice I was having a good hair month- partly thanks to my Drybar visit and products and maybe because there was no humidity during my trip to Vegas. I also felt better about my body because of my diet and fitness regimen, but I will admit that I have hit some road bumps with the many BBQ's and social events. In the end, as long as I get my booty back in the gym I think I'll be able to hang on to some of the progress.

Maxi and Gladiators

Happy Thursday Friends! You might recognize that hallway from a couple of my previous posts and yes it's from my Vegas trip a few weeks back, but I figured before Summer slips through my hands, I needed to share this comfortable and perfect-for-walking-around-in-hot-weather combo. Maxi dresses are essential to staying cool in the heat and any time it has slits I automatically pair it with gladiator sandals. I just love how the gladiator belts peek through!

I promise to be back with some exciting posts, but in the meantime don't forget to enter my current Cute Stuff giveaway (retail value $100+) here!
