never ending summer

can you believe it's august?
i feel like summer always goes by in the blink of an eye!

this look combined some of my seasonal favorites that i have been wearing all summer long: a basic white blouse, easy summer shorts, colored converse, simple rings from wire wrap, white "tomorrow's unknown" anchor bracelet , a straw bowler and a summer satchel. 
 i've never considered myself much of a hat person. i just don't look that great in them, i think it's because my head is too round, but i found this bowler at a vintage store and fell in's been my solution to humidity hair and i've been wearing it all summer long!
hat: vintage (similar) // blouse: necessary clothing // shorts: necessary clothing // sunnies: miu miu // shoes: converse // handbag: kate spade // arm part: j.crew // kate spade x2 // vintage // wire wrap // tomorrow's unknown // necklace: marc jacobs 

with two necessary clothing pieces, my look is fairly affordable
(aside from the handbag) but just to give you more bang for your buck, here's a second similar look for under $155
shop this look:
h&m blouse $30 // tomorrow's unknown bracelet (just like j.crew) $28
