Hippie Vibes

How is it seriously November in a couple of days?! We’re well into Fall, but Summer weather is still in full effect in Miami. Having grown up in freezing cold Minnesota I feel bad complaining about the heat, but come on! 90 degrees in November? I’m tired of getting an instant sweat ‘stache the second I step outside. I miss sweaters! Scarves! Layers! Although those things are pretty much still out of the question, I did rebel by bringing out this long sleeved shirt from Zara the other day. This shirt is made of a really soft, but heavier cotton and I love the boho-hippie vibe of the fringe on the sleeves. That same hippie vibe inspired me to pair it with my YSL mega-platforms. I feel like a bonafide giant in these tall suckers and I enjoy every second of it :)

Now off I go to play in my closet and figure out tomorrow’s Halloween costume!

Wishing everyone a safe, fun and HaPpY HaLloWeEn!!

Top: Zara | Shorts: American Eagle (thrifted) | Shoes: YSL | Necklace: Vintage
