My Summer Staple

Tuesday, July 28, 2009
For this hot heat, the simplest way to stay cool is to wear a skirt. or a dress. If you haven't noticed, this is my only white skirt. So I'll be wearing it all summer. What is your summer staple?
modest fashion blog lds clothed much
Wearing Wet Seal scarf ($3), Downeast Basics white top (gift from my MIL), Wet Seal skirt ($10), thrifted belt ($2), secondhand wedges ($7).

So my creativity still seems to be lacking.. I wear repeats during my non-posting days. I know...I'm a cheater.. But the point of this blog is to utilize the clothes I already have, not adding to it! Except a few shopping trips were necessary in my opinion...

    I really like that you show us how to utilize the clothes you already have.
    That's one of the reasons I really like your blog.

  3. My summer staple is tank tops with built-in bras. The less layers, the better (while still being modest, of course!). :)

    Thanks for your sweet comments!!

  4. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. It looks sweet and classic. Hmmmm.... my summer staple is all of my 5 v-neck boyfriend tees from Mossimo. Basic but comfy.

  9. my summer staple are t-shirts and skirts! Especially when it's so hot outside the last thing I feel like doing is being constricted. Definitely don't feel bad about wearing pieces over again, I do it all the time and at least we're not up to our ears in debt because we keep buying a new outfit every day, right? LOL. I love love the scarf you're wearing!

  10. I love the combination of the stark white with the chocolate brown, and the scarf really makes a great statement piece!

  11. omg ewww, I know exactly what you're talking about when you said you got a really bad rash from your booggie board! >_< That's happened to me once from using my cousin's board. Luckily my dad bought my sister and I these really nice boogie boards with a plastic covering so that the foam doesn't rub against our tummies.

    Do you ever go to the Great Salt Lake??

  16. Love the all white with that pop of colour. My staple has been my blazers, summer in Toronto always gets chilly at night - or in the day - it just depends, LOL.

    Yes, I'm Filipino. I can't speak it very well but I can understand a fair bit. Is your hubs fluent?

  30. Cute outfit! :) I love the summer look with a light scarf!

    My summer staple is not so much a summer thing, but just a staple in general. It is this vintage brown belt that I seriously wear every single day (well, I have to wear scrubs during the week, but whenever I am not in my scrubs)! I have tried other belts, but I just can't wear any other one!

  31. What a fantastic look! I was so craving a white dress today, and this is a brilliant way of wearing all white - that scarf is perfect.

    My summer staple is my favorite pair of sandals - they're metallic blue and I feel like I wear them to death!

  39. I live in my jean cut-offs. But perhaps I should start sporting my white skirt more often because you look so fab. And summery. And all around cute. Especially in all white with the belt breaking it up just a bit. Lovely!

  46. Hi Elaine! I had a good time just hanging out with friends, but a wee bit sad that I didn't find anything. Not one thing! :] But it was good for my wallet haha!

    Your white skirt is lovely! I wish I could wear white but I'm such a klutz. I'll end up spilling stuff on me!
