After a whole lot of frustration, I finally recognized my dilemma. Let me explain. Obviously during the winter time we are all bundled up in layers upon layers of sweaters, beanies, and scarfs so that we don’t freeze to death (in Utah, you really feel like you might). But, once the cold front descends and the sun finally shines again, everyone is feeling all summery. And by “summery” I mean, everyone is ready to shed their layers of coats and put on a swimsuit. Adorable dresses are everywhere ready for you to bask in the sun, but do any of them have sleeves? No. And do I want shirts and dresses with sleeves? Yes. I’m not talking about long sleeves, I’m not a lunatic. All I want is a t-shirt sleeve, that’s all. It is next to impossible to find a cute dress or a t-shirt once summer hits. Everything is a tank top.
Not surprisingly, I end up having zero t-shirts or summer dresses in my closet and I sweat all summer long because I live in Utah and all I have is winter clothes. Okay, so I don’t actually wear my winter clothes during summer, but I definitely have limited options for a summer wardrobe. When fall finally comes, dresses and shirts with t-shirt sleeves start arriving in stores and all I’m thinking about is how the inevitable winter is coming and how I need coats to keep me warm once it does come. Because of this doomsday feeling about the cold, imminent, bitter winter situation, I never end up buying the t-shirts that are available in the fall. No wonder I never have any. This year my friends, this year, that has changed. I am snatching up all of the tees I can find because let’s face it, we have a few weeks left of heat, winter will soon be here, and when spring and summer come around again, I will be ready because this girl bought t-shirts this season! Woohoo!
Okay, so enough of my rant. I have found this adorable online shop called Prim Lane that offers super cute tees! Plus, they have darling dresses that are perfect to wear now, and light enough to wear in the summer. I have styled both a daytime and an evening look featuring a couple of my favorite graphic tees from their shop. Shops like this are my saving grace come summer! Stop by their website and snatch them while you still can!
And, on this post I am also featuring on my of very favorite shops where I can find high quality jewelry. It is surprisingly difficult to find nice jewelry pieces that don’t rust or tarnish, but let me tell you, Katie Waltman is amazing. I am sort of a Katie Waltman addict. Her jewelry is stunning and I have never been disappointed. I am featuring her black druzy necklace today–obsessed.
