Late Summer: Take Five

Online browsing lets me virtually play dress-up and put together wishlist outfits. This gives me ideas on new pieces to add to my closet and inspiration on new ways to wear what I already own. Here are a couple outfit ideas that would work for late summer - all with just five pieces or less. They're all pretty much my style since they're cool but not too revealing ... and of course now I also have a bunch of new bags on my wishlist!

(Of course everything below is from one of my fave retailers, Shopbop, and the links are direct).

Outfit 1:
Joie sandals / Levi's jeans / English Factory tops / Kate Spade bags / Stella + Ruby jewelry

Outfit 2:
LNA tops / WAYF skirts / Sam Edelman sandals / Theia jewelry / Sancia bags

Outfit 3:
Free People jackets / Petit Bateau tops / Zimmermann shorts / Cocobelle sandals / Misa totes

Outfit 4:
Alice + Olivia dresses / Zac Posen bags / Hat Attack hats / Kenneth Jay Lane jewelry / Loeffler Randall sandals
