OOTD: The Summer Peacock

Summer comes in a luke-warm flavor here in the Northwest.

Here in Seattle, the minute the sun peaks its head over the clouds, and it warms up to 60F degrees, outcome shorts, flip flops and t-shirts. I look around and see the stereotypical "Seattle" summer style, which includes rolled up cargo shorts, flip-flops and a loose, button-up cotton blouse. I thought I'd try and step up the typical "Seattle-summer" fashion game, with my new top, which I've lovingly named the Summer Peacock top. The best thing about this top? It will double as my go-to shirt during my trip to Tuscany in June.

Another note: My new favorite accessory is Lip Stain! The most amazing thing - a subtle pop of color that stays on all day with little maintenance. The shade I'm wearing here is Revlon's "Just Bitten" Lip Stain in "Flame."
