Indian Summer

Carefully considering each purchase is a fortunate side effect of a strict sartorial budget. I've become much more picky of where my money goes - and I've spent an embarrassing amount of time checking every angle in fitting room mirrors. This floaty, chiffon top from H&M was the first item to make the cut this month. (I'm sure the sales associate was just glad I purchased something after handing back a pile of rejects. But you know what? I love it so much that I've worn it five times since. Don't judge.) Paired with army green shorts and a gold vintage medallion, my summer uniform has transitioned into autumn.

Outfit Notes: Blouse-H&M; Shorts-H&M; Shoes-Guess; Bracelet-House of Harlow; Necklace-Vintage via eBay

  5. I LOVE the blouse...good for you for not just buying every little thing you love and for actually thinking about how you will wear it. I read on another blog that the person will not purchase an item unless they can think of three ways to wear it...sounds like a good rule to me:)
    Your shoes.....are adorable...you seriously couldnt have picked out a better pair for this ensemble:) You look great as always:)

  32. You know I actually feel much better resisting buying lots of stuff, since I started really thinking about my purchases I find I have much more to wear even though I buy much less. The floaty top is lovely and you can layer it up when it gets colder too, great buy x
