Labor Day Style

summer fashion staples

I’m predicting that many of you are busy enjoying this holiday with family and friends, but I still wanted to be sure that Monday Mingle was there for you! Since it’s a time for family and picnics, that’s what I am sharing. My 9 year old photographer snapped these images before we headed out to our party yesterday.

Not much new to report. These are all summer staples. The sunny Birkenstocks, the cut-offs, the air-dry hair. This has been my summer style.


The shorts are Citizen of Humanity and I think I have worn them 90+ times this summer. Same for the Birks. The crochet sweater is OLD and from Lauren by Ralph Lauren.

The one new piece is the necklace. It’s a score from TJMaxx. $5 for this $110 necklace from Llydell NYC.

I hope you are wearing something sunny and fun on this last summer hurrah. Lots of great fashion coverage for fall is underway, but for now, I’ll embrace the summer staples.

Now it’s your turn is it time for work or play for you? Monday Mingle is a fashionable collaboration between me, Kristin from follow and Carly from ThirtySomethingFashion. Each week we post about our personal style and then invite our friends to join in the fun. We’ve got a new giveaway and hope you’ll join in!

    I love that long lace open drape, I just bought a lace open sweater and I’m so glad I did. I will have to admit though, I’ve had a hard time styling it, but the way you wore it here is very nice.

    I can’t wait for next spring, I think it will be in constant rotaion
