C’est La Vie | Lightweight August Outfit

I can’t believe it’s already August. Where has the summer gone? Although, let’s be real, it hasn’t actually gone anywhere–it’s still hot hot hot in South Louisiana. The thought of which has me cringing at wearing anything heavier than a lightweight outfit complete with a cotton shirt!

So until we get our first cold snap and in effort to make summer last as long as possible, I’m wearing light and breezy outfits, like this one from Obsession Boutique!
Outfit of the Day

Seriously, y’all. This shirt. Let’s chat about this shirt (also available in red). It’s the perfect lightweight material to beat the heat of a Louisiana summer. And if it can keep me cool in the 99 degree heat with 90+% humidity, then everyone should have a shirt like this. I love the bright, carefree pattern and it goes perfectly with my white skinny jeans from Loft! (P.S. I’m wearing a petite and I still have to cuff them!)

Tassel + Gold Arm Candy

In addition to keeping cool this summer, I’m all about the tassel trend (sorry not sorry). I’m wearing no less than seven in this outfit alone!  But y’all statement earrings are making a come back and what better way to make a statement than TASSELS! C’est la vie, y’all.

    I have one pair of tassel earrings but they are burgundy, so I’m bringing them out in fall! I need to get some for sure. I laughed at your comment about the shirt keeping you cool…its so humid and gross where I live too right now!

  • I love the earrings and the shirt! I need it! It’s pretty hot here in Utah, and August and September are usually the hottest months of the year!
