The heat wave broke here, and we're back to more normal life--and more typical dressing for Seattle summer. Here's what I've been wearing the last few days.

The outfits:
1-3 (worn to work): knit A-line skirt in black with red dot print and mesh knit trim at hem (made by me); cranberry sleeveless blouse (Nordstrom Collection, NAS a couple of years ago); cropped black 3/4-sleeved jacket with zip front, lower zip pockets and upper patch pockets (Halogen); black sling-back Mary Janes (Think!); black satchel (Elliott Lucca).

4-6 (worn for a day off and some shopping): white bootcut jeans (Lucky, Lolita); sea-blue ballet-neck tee (Caslon); hemp hooded zip-front jacket in stone color (Layers Squared); stone and cream belt (Annette Goertz); wedge bootie style sandals (DV by Dolce Vita); taupe hobo bag (Aunts & Uncles).

7-8 (worn to work): blue boyfriend chinos (Eddie Bauer); knit print surplice top in blues, olive, and red on ivory background (made by me); sage linen knit drape-front cardigan (made by me); olive quilted jacket with knit sleeves (Blue Willie); denim ballet flats (AGL); tan belt (Trafalgar); navy and tan bag (Dooney & Bourke). I decided to go with the cardigan rather than the jacket.

Thanks for looking! Thoughts and suggestions are welcome!
