Outfit Post: Pom Pom Tunic

I know we’re all supposed to start committing to fall but since we’re not on the dark side of Labor Day yet, I’m going to keep the summer time posts coming. It’s also still north of 90 degrees outside so it’s hard to fully commit to the “season change” (that’s in quotes because it’s more of a retail manufactured season change at this point in the calendar year).  Yes, I know I wore a felt hat yesterday but now I’m back in poolside attire. That’s because I’m trying to soak up every last second of pool season before the close the gates on it for the year (so so sad).

This tunic was an impulse sale buy from Crewcuts (yup, it’s kids – no shame in my sale game) but I got the biggest size and it works perfectly over both bathing suits and paired with shorts or jeans. I’ve used it frequently the last few weeks for both. Love the bright color, the pom-pom trim and that it’s not too long to be worn as a top which is my biggest pet peeve with most tunics. I know it’s doubtful that anyone is putting a bunch of summer stuff in their shopping carts right now but if you’re like me and make some last minute sale snags to save for next year – there’s a slew of tunics for cheap right now (like this tassel one seen here) and these espadrilles are marked way down and can be worn now and then you can break them back out next spring, like a barely worn present to yourself. Or am I the only one that does that?

It’s only Tuesday but I’m already counting down to the three-day weekend. You know why I love a state sanctioned three-day weekend? Because when you take a day off work, not everyone else does so you’re still getting all kinds of emails and calls but when everyone is off there is a sweet silence from all work obligations. There’s a special kind of joy when everyone is off at the same time (or most everyone – I know all those hardworking medical professionals and a bunch of other people don’t get the day off). Plus we get Monday off and there’s nothing better than starting the week on a Tuesday. Clearly, I’ve thought a lot about this.

Outfit Post: The Black T-Shirt

There are very few things I love more than a good t-shirt.

Okay, there are a lot of things I probably love more than t-shirts but when it comes to my wardrobe, my t-shirt drawers (yes, there are multiples) are packed to the brim. I am ALWAYS on the hunt for a great t-shirt. Always. So you can imagine my excitement when Louisville gal Annie St. Clair (you may remember her from her Creative Louisville feature a couple weeks back) dropped me a note about her new knitwear line – A. St. Clair. Even better than a new line of tees, is that you can customize her tees to exactly what you want. So sing a verse of “you can have whatever you like” and then head over to astclair.com and pick the neckline, hem length and sleeve type of your choosing.

This black t-shirt has been my, hands-down, favorite from her line. Long hemline, scoop neck and short sleeves. I’ve worn it under a blazer for work, paired it with jean shorts for a day of shopping and worn it with leggings for a lazy day around the house. Love love love it.

Jumping the gun a little with this fall-ish look that I wore to dinner last week on an unseasonably cool evening. Just shows how a great t-shirt goes from season to season.

Best part of all – Annie is giving Lou What Wear readers 10% off so you can customize your perfect tee. Just enter code ‘louwhatwear‘ at check-out through September 4th. And we’re not done yet, head over to Instagram where I’m giving away a $100 A. St. Clair gift card. Not a bad way to start a Monday, huh?
