my outfit: delightful layers!

I'm back! I'm back!

I'm back from vacation... I'm back to taking outfit photos AND I'm even back with the latest looks:book (you did see the launch for that this morning, right!?!?)  It feels really good to be back.  That is why I just LOVE vacations!  It's so nice to get away from "regular life" for a while and equally nice to get back to normal after all the fun. I am a person that strives on a schedule and routine and so I'm happy to be back in the saddle!

And with the summer days waning I've got this thing where I am eager to wear all my favorites as much as I can before the summer is over.  Do you have that!?!?  I was just looking through my closet trying to decide which pieces haven't been worn enough and which ones I will be the saddest to not wear when it gets cold out.  This J.Crew warm mustard top seemed like the perfect seasonal transition!

So these last couple weeks of summer will be the "best of" of sorts.  Or that's the plan, any way.

Oh, and I also got my new Warby Parker glasses (they are Warby Parker Huxley in Hazelwood) right before I left on vacation. I love them and have been wearing them quite a bit. (as seen here)
I went with the Huxley style - LOVE!
I love that with Warby Parker you can try them on at home or do the Warby Parker virtual try-on... LOVE!
Ordering was SUPER easy (after my eye exam with my doctor) - LOVE!
And the best part is that since I am practically blind (true story) they offer thinner lenses to avoid the coke-bottle look for an extra $25 (you bet I jumped on that) - LOVE!
Did I mention they arrived in just about a week and that they came with a great glasses case? - LOVE!
Also, WP isn't sponsoring me to say any of this. I actually just love them that much. I'm already scheming about another pair!

I so want a pair of Warby Parker glasses. I tried their virtual try-on tool and showed my husband some of the pictures, but he hated them all. He likes me in my plain metal/wire-rimmed glasses. Boohoo. Anyway, I love how you look in yours--Huxley was on my list to try on, too!

I need to take a journey through my closet here soon and see what I've got for summer that I want to wear and what I have that will transition to Fall! Your glasses are adorable by the way :)

You look awesome! I love the outfit...the colors are perfect. And I am a HUGE WP fan...I did their home try-on a few months ago and now I just need to get in for my eye exam, because I just know my eyes are getting worse. I'm going to get the Coltons...just love them. Looking forward to Jill's Greatest Hits the next couple weeks :)

That mustard is my favorite color to wear ever. It's so flattering!

Love this, the mustard top looks fab on you.

Love the glasses, I need an eye test ASAP but I've always been borderline (just need them ever so slightly for driving). I'm definitely cracking out my summer favourites for the next couple of weeks too; we're only in the south of France for another 3 weeks, so my last few outfits have been entirely white to show off the tan before it fades :D

I can't wait to layer! We still have 3 digit temperatures here :-(

It's still too warm to layer! I can't wait!

What color are your Huxley glasses? I'm guessing either Sandalwood or Hazelwood. Very cute!
