If there’s anyone who’s ready to say goodbye to summer, trust me, it’s me. Don’t get me wrong, I like summer.  Like being the operative word. I’m just not good with the extreme Southern heat, I never have been.  So unlike many of you who want to stretch summer days out indefinitely, I’m ready to embrace all things fall.

But before I pull out the chunky knits, jewel tone suedes, and all things faux fur I figured I’d embrace one more outfit post with a few of my everyday staples.  Some of the pieces are summer to the core, and a few are more everyday pieces like my grey jeans because my white jeans were already packed away.

Almost all of these clothing pieces in today’s post are older or re-buys.  Older meaning they’ve lasted and I’ve been able to wear them season after season. Re-buys meaning I buy the same type of piece or brand each season in a different print or pattern. And the good thing about talking about these favorites of mine now is you can score many of them on sale! Win, win.

The older staples: my Madewell high waisted jeans, my Balenciaga wedges (going on 4 summers now), and my Celine sunnies

I’ve tried a lot of jeans in my life, but Madewell jeans seem to be the winner.  They’re comfortable, they last forever, and the price point won’t break the bank.  I’m wearing the black high rise here, but I also have these ones and these ones.

My Balenciaga wedges are probably the most comfortable shoes I own, but sadly they don’t make them anymore.  When they discontinued this particular style I bought 2 additional pairs because I love them that much.  But they’ve held up so well, I haven’t even had to wear the backups yet. I did link a few similar styles below, I’m particularly fond of these ones.  

And then rounding out my older staple pieces would have to be my Celine sunnies.  I typically have issues with sunglasses because while it may not look it I actually have a very small head meaning so many sunglasses end up being too big.  And if you’ve ever had a pair of sunglasses stretch out on you then you’ll understand when I say there is nothing more annoying than sunglasses that fall of your head.  Celines and Karen Walkers fit my head perfectly, they last forever and are definitely worth the price point.  I’ve had these Celine’s for almost 3 years now and my Karen Walkers for almost six!

For my re-buys: my Roller Rabbit tunic, Colores Collective tassel bag, and some fun, inexpensive summer earrings and bracelets to add to my collection.

I buy numerous Roller Rabbit pieces each summer because I love their detailing and cotton or gauzy material.  This one is actually a dress that I often wear as an actual dress, but here I tucked it up into my bra to make it a tunic.  Innovative I know.  If you’re a Roller Rabbit fan like I am there are plenty of Roller Rabbit pieces on sale HERERoller Rabbit does tend to run a bit big, but that’s how you want it to fit so keep that in mind when ordering.

Lastly, each season I always like to add inexpensive and fun accessories to the mix. This summer I was all about straw totes like the one here from Colores Collective, and bright light earrings like these and these.  I love that because they’re not an investment I’m not worried if they’ll hold up or I’ll lose them when traveling.

So that’s it. My last post filled with summer vibes.  Thank God.  Bring on the fall my Friends! Truly, MKR
