Even though it has been 90 degrees everyday this week in Dallas, my mind is someplace cooler. I am planning a trip someplace far north of Dallas for the middle of July, and I have started stocking up on casual layers. I found some great pieces on sale, but my favorite is this white bomber jacket from Anthropologie. It is currently on sale for less than $50 (total steal!) and comes in four bright colors. Of course I went for the white bomber, but I love the navy color as well. It fits true to size (I am wearing a small), and it is lightweight enough for spring and summer (well probably not in Texas). I paired the bomber with my favorite tee from Urban Outfitters (wearing a small, it fits loose) and distressed black jeans from J.Crew. These jeans are so comfortable to wear because they stretch well. I also love the cropped and high-waisted fit (wearing size 26 regular). My only complaint about the black jeans is they will pick up lint easily, and I have to ask for a black napkin in restaurants. These jeans also come in white (perfect for summer), and lint does not seem to be as big of an issue on them. My upcoming trip will probably involve quite a bit of walking, so I have been on the hunt for some fun but comfortable shoes. I love the look of platform sneakers, but found that most caused blisters or are just not comfortable. These Dolce Vita sneakers were by far the most comfortable pair I tried on, and they are on sale for less than $100! They come in three colors, but if you have seen any of my athletic shoes, you know I only own white sneakers. These sneakers fit true to size (wearing an 8), and the canvas material is easy to keep clean with a Tide To Go stick which I always carry with me. Shop the entire look below! xoxo
