Simple Summer

16 July 2010
















Hello Hello! I just quickly took these photos
right before a torrential down poor. Anyways,
I know cut-off Levi's were sooo two summers ago,
but I do not care. I have been living in these things!
It is such a perfect easy-going outfit for summer.
Also, I got these simple pumps from Urban
recently, and I just love them! They are (only)
3.5 inches and super comfy.

Also, thank you to everyone's recommendations
for what I should do in Chicago! You all were so soo
helpful. I can't wait to eat, eat, eat there and also
shop. Two things I do best.

PS- I am totally updating this post while
blasting Girl Talk and dancing. Feeling a little silly
about now.

PPS- Please entertain me with your lovely questions-

Krislyn said...

i LOVE that button down top... unique. really love it.

Taylor B. said...

Are you wearing the top backwards or are the buttons actually down the back? Either way it's a great look!

That little bag is so adorable.

I know what you mean about denim shorts. On my off days I just throw them on and go.

Love the heels! They look so good and yet seem so practical. I'll have to check them out. Your purse is gorgeous too.

Raquel said...

eleanor said...

How do you look so effortlessly lovely yet so pulled together at the same time? I love this look, and the buttons down the back of the top.

PS. Short heels are the best!

Amanda said...

Love this outfit! I've been so into cut offs lately too, they are amazingly comfortable. Plus, don't have to worry about any mishaps with them like I have to do with dresses!

That's a cool top, the buttons on the back add an interesting element to an otherwise basic top. :)
Haha, only 3.5 inches! I would probably break my ankles, I'm horribly uncoordinated with heels.

Meg! said...

I'd like to rename this blog Flushes of Style - down the drain. Really though, your sad excuse for style is obviously unoriginal and copies others without doing them justice. Not only that but you counter this by boasting excessively about your personal life. I've truly tried to appreciate what you're doing here but it comes off as way too self-centered and self-fulfilling. And the worst part is you having nothing to be proud of about it. You're a twat that cares only about buying (and showing off) clothing. You're a product of the disgusting american consumer culture.

I love this, I'm way more into simple outfits lately .

Bea said...

What's up with the anonymous butt face? I must congratulate you, Bonnie, on your first hater! You've made it, lady. Haha!

Anyway I have been living in cut off denim shorts as well. They seem to make every outfit ten times cuter. Especially when belted. :)

Your heels could not be more perfect. I love the shape and height. So sturdy and cute. I would like a closet-full in many different colors.
