Wearing: Tassels Shirt and White Jeans

There are some definite end-of-summer vibes going on around here. Besides being in the middle of a big life change (details to come soon!), we're starting our end of season rituals. For me that means hauling boxes of notebooks and school supplies to my car to take over to my classroom. It also means wearing all of my favorite summer outfits. Is it because I'm sad to see them go or because it's so darn hot and humid out I can't wear anything else? I'll never tell... Some of my favorite outfits for the summer include white, specifically white jeans. I know, I know, it's now acceptable to wear white jeans all year 'round. I do but for some reason white just looks so much better in the summer. There's something so fresh and clean and summer-y about white. While summer is giving its last hurrah, I'll be over here obsessing over this perfect tassel shirt and white jeans outfit.

 Anybody else cautiously approach things with fringe or tassels? Yes, tassels and fringe are having a moment but like I always say, I'm slow to adapt. Which is okay because one day you could wake up and wonder why your whole closet looks like a cross between 1960s bedroom curtains and a cat attack. But when I saw this tassel shirt, I had to have it. It's got just enough tassels to be like "Oh fun!" but not too much to be like "Oh boy, you've got a lot of tassels there." I love over-the-top as much as the next fashion loving lady but on myself? Not so much.

While this tassel shirt has been on constant rotation this summer, white jeans have not. That's because it's been one heat wave after another. This weekend Nick and I are headed down the Shore to relax before things get to busy. I might try to break them out then but I like to stay cool, calm, and collected. Ninety degrees and long pants, whether they're white or not, just won't cut it. So while the end of summer draws near and I'm getting ready to go back to work, the white jeans are probably going to have some post-Labor Day outings. Just don't tell my grandmother.
