My Style: August 2023

Looking back on August, it was a peak summer month over here. We went to the beach. It was hot and sticky. And when I went into the office it was over air conditioned. To be honest, September weather in Maryland is pretty similar to August weather, but we have *hopes* of cooler weather coming, so there’s that.

Let’s look at August:

Work Outfits

Left: I hadn’t worn my pretty embroidered Anthropologie skirt this summer, so I wanted to make sure to give it a spin before fall. I paired it with my moss green notPERFECT LINEN tank top (first time I wore it out of the house), a cardigan to protect against the freezing work AC, and a pair of comfy sandals.

Right: I had just thrifted this navy blue embriodered Talbots top and washed it, so I figured I’d wear it right away! I kept it pretty simple with the top, my mustard colored Marseille skirt and some wedge Birkenstocks. It’s a little too simple though — I think next time I’ll add a fun necklace or earrings to this look.

Casual Outfits

Lots more linen for my casual outfits. The beach outfit is just a simple tank top with the same skirt as the above work look. The top right outfit is a ‘me dyed’ linen top, paired with my moss green Marseille skirt — it matches the tank in my work outfit for a fun ‘dress’ like look when worn together. I love items that I can dress up for work or feel super comfortable just hanging around in. There is no need to be too precious with your clothes. They’re clothes and meant to be worn!

The black outfit is a pretty fabulous linen tiered dress from Anthropologie with a super awkward top — so I always tie a shirt on top to hide it. And I love, love, love the thrifted Rag & Bone linen top/sweater thing on the bottom right outfit so much and I really need to wear it a ton more. I paired it with a gray 1950’s City Skirt (from NPL) and Birkenstocks for ‘Back to School’ night at the middle school.

Looking ahead to September, I’ll probably pull out my super summery clothes and give them a last wear (also talked about here Change of Seasons Clothing Tip). Then, before we know it fall weather, bonfire nights, and bootie season will be upon us!

  1. Thanks for sharing your outfits. I like the back to school top and skirt, the best. And, the sandals are perfect with it.
