LA CATRINA de LA Moda: my summer uniform

my summer uniform

my summer uniform

I was not planning on doing an outfit post with this outfit, but changed my mind last minute (that explains the very bad cell phone camera pictures).  These are all pieces that you have seen many times before here on my blog.  I am telling you.... this picture is proof of my beyond obsession with tap shorts this summer. 

I wore this outfit for a very HOT and sunny day of back to school shopping, sadly not for me :(
I happen to be the family stylist ;) so I was helping my younger brother with some back to school shopping.  However, I was very tempted to get myself some things, there is sooo much amazing fall stuff out there, but I was good and did not shop for myself.  It was really fun getting in that "back to school" spirit, it had been a while since I don't do any back to school shopping anymore ( I mostly shop year round).

We headed over to South Coast Plaza, and  ended up doing Macy's for jeans, Nordstrom young men's department for trendy accessories and printed t-shirts, and H&M for their great deals on button downs,  jackets, okay and pretty much everything.  I am not going to lie, I was kinda bummed that I didn't get to do any back to school shopping for myself, but I am going back this week to get me an amazing $34.99 trench coat from H&M (fingers crossed that it will still be there when I go back)

Have a great weekend you guys, sending lots of love your way!

Your will power not to shop is definitely stronger than mine! If it were me, I think I would've been the one doing all the shopping haha. Crossing my fingers for you that the trench coat will still be there when you go back to H&M -- I especially hate it when I've got my eye on something and then it's gone when I go back to the store to get it! xo

Nothing wrong with having a signature look, even if it feels like a uniform! This look suits you so well, and I'm glad you wear it often so I can see it executed so perfectly!

Love Alexandra
