40 + Style Summer

Outfit: Black Blazer | Distressed Denim Skirt | Loafers

I’ve been thinking a lot about why I’m excited for fall clothes so much. Seriously, I ponder about this and other non-important stuff ALL the time. My brain doesn’t shut up. It’s really irritating. Especially when I’m trying to go to sleep. I think I like fall clothes so much because I like layering. You can easily create interesting outfits when you layer and it’s hard to layer in the summer because it’s so hot.

Add stripes!

Mix prints!

Zhush it up with a scarf!

My summer outfits just seem SO boring, because I’m not much of a snazzy print kind of person. So, whenever we have a cooler than normal summer day, I find myself layering and liking my outfits more. This is what keeps me up at night you guys!

So anyhoo… I did order a few new things from Grana recently. (Click here for a post that talks about their company.) They have some new silk, and I’m a big fat sucker for silk these days, because it makes me feel like a pretty, pretty princess. I think their silk is very reasonably priced and they have some great colors. This striped silk tank is one of the things that I purchased. No pondering. Add to cart. I have this tank in black as well, and love it. (Here’s the review that I did on the silk tank.) It’s a great staple.

  1. Hi Ashley, just wanted to say how much I love your blog posts and I think you look fantastic in all the outfits you wear. One thing that really resonated with me in this post is your analysis of summer outfits and why you prefer fall (autumn to me) clothes. I have moved to a warmer climate where summer is about 10 months of the year, and I was wondering why I was not getting the same enjoyment from my clothes since I moved. Of course – I love layering too! Seems obvious, but you have made me really think about it. Also glad to hear this keeps you up at night too – ha!
