Puff Sleeves & Puddle Pants For a Cool Summer Look

By Posted on 2 min read 544 views

Well it has been a minute since I have done an OOTD post. Life has been crazy for the past twenty four months as we all know. And in addition to COVID I had quite a bit going on in my life. Life is just so filled with ups and downs and it can challenging to traverse at times. But for the most part we all get through it. Things are finally settling down a bit and I had some free time to pop out east with a friend of mine. Needless to say, we had to have an impromptu photo shoot. OK so maybe not so impromptu but doing the street style thing non the less.

I am surprised I look as “fresh” as I do in these photos

We went out to NorthPort on the north shore of Long Island and had a lovey day strolling around, doing a bit of shopping, stopping for a bite and then sitting along the water front. The only down side was the incredible heat. It was almost 100 degrees that day with %77 humidity—pretty unbearable. I am surprised I look as “fresh” as I do in these photos, as I was anything but…

Yup global warming is real and it is happening faster than they predicted. Not sure what to say bout that anymore. On a less pessimistic note I am wearing %100 linen trousers that I got at And Other Stories. I wore these pants last season to NYFW and was snapped wearing them and had the photo posted to Getty Images, got to love that! The top is also from And Other Stories and does double duty in the trends department with puffed sleeves and a gingham print.

wide loose pants, short sleeves and a bun—sure fire summer go to’s for those long hot sweltering days

The inspired bag I purchased at a new shop named “Graffiti” not to far from where I live, and it is from a brand called Eam Forever. The sandals are Aerosoles and the sunnies I can not recall where I picked them up, but I love the classic all black vibe. The bag and shoes are new, and the pants and top I had from last summer. I combined them for a look that I knew I would be wearing for quite a while: wide loose pants, short sleeves and a bun—sure fire summer go to’s for those long hot sweltering days.

XOXO

    You do look fresh Allie, and I couldn’t tell it was such a hot day! I love these pants, they look so elegant on you, and the belt is beautiful too, that extra nice touch. In Western Australia, we had our hottest summer on record this year, I dread to think what it will be like this upcoming summer for us, yes global warming is real. Have a lovely weekend, I hope it’s cooler for you! xx

    I love this outfit, Allie! The sleeves on this blouse are so pretty and I am glad the trousers were cool for you to wear since it was so humid outside! We get a lot of humidity here in southern Ohio and it does make it miserable to be outside sometimes.

    Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!

    These photos are so great. I love this colour combination but honestly, I am crazy over those trousers so much. I love a high waist and the way they hit in the most best ways possible is everything. And your bag is so pretty as well. I hope you are enjoying this seasonal shift so far.

      Yes I am all about a high waist. I am not bit on the low waist trend. I think it makes your legs look short and I am tall and when I see photos of myself in low waist jeans or even semi low rise jeans I think my legs look short. It is a cute bag!

    I’m so game for a statement sleeve- and that delicate little gingham print is perfect! Love the pale pink trousers here- linen is always a smart choice for August!
