I wanted to get a wear of my new Nordstrom Anniversary Sale item in, so I dressed these Rag & Bone 'Dre' jeans up for summer with a white pleated blouse and blush flats.

A beautiful early summer day - it's in the 70's (F, low 20's C) today. I am working from home and running errands today, so sneakers were handy. I've got a nasty sinus infection, so one of my errands was to visit the doctor for a prescription for antibiotics. They said I should expect it to clear up in 48 hours (I've been struggling with it since Thursday, so nearly a week, and having it done by the weekend sounds wonderful).
I also have a haircut tomorrow, so I'm really looking forward to that! I'm going to have it cut a bit shorter this time.

I've always felt that my shoulders and neck were nice features, so I have been looking forward to trying an off the shoulder top. At first, I thought I'd stick to the more practical "cold shoulder" version of this trend, which has been around for a bit. I saw a woman wearing a lovely cold shoulder white peasant top with cutoff denim shorts at the beath a couple weekends ago and it strengthened my resolve to give this trend a spin. After shopping online, I decided to give it a chance with the strapless bra.
I'm still nursing, and actually a strapless bra is pretty easy to nurse in. I've leaned out just enough that my old strapless fits perfectly, as it turns out. This is the one I own (Fantasie brand). If you are like me and have a larger cup size and smaller band size, I recommend it (it has molded cups which I do not like in my regular bras, but it helps with a strapless bra).
In the past, I have also owned this Wacoal stretch lace strapless bra (not molded cups) and it was very comfortable.
I recommend having a proper bra fitter at either a specialty boutique or Nordstrom fit you for a strapless bra and show you how to put it on. I would NOT recommend Victoria's Secret and their ilk as they do not fit bras properly and often do not carry sizes that are actually very common.

I was inspired by Angie Cox's observation about neckerchiefs being a thing lately. I guess to me, this means a scarf that is worn only at the neck. I had forgotten about this geometrically patterned long, thin and slightly ruffled scarf that I own. I really like the soft neutral color mix. I paired it with my Madewell striped tank and NYDJ linen wide-leg trousers. I added a bit more oomph by bookending the scarf with snakeskin ballet flats (Vera Wang Lavendar Label), as these trousers were hemmed for flats. I had my black moto jacket at the ready, because it was grey with a few sun breaks today. I didn't need a jacket, though; I stayed inside most of the day and it was oddly warm anyway.
