I have been working on a huge project at work that has required me to come in all summer dressed very simply (ready to work and move tons of stuff around!). So I have been finding simple pleasures in the basics I typically don’t share on this blog. I have years worth of basics shared in the back catalog of this blog from when I used to do daily outfits, I feel no need to share those kinds of outfits anymore; I save this space for special things now :-)
It doesn’t get much simpler than these basics too! I have been wanting a crisp white shirt with some flair for a while, and this sleeveless one was perfect. It transitions well from jeans to skirts! These blue jeans also have me pretty content – I cannot rave enough about how much I love JBrand jeans!

I’ve been experiencing some light sensitivity issues with my eyes lately as you can seen in these photos. I need to stop taking pictures at times and locations when the light hits my eyes directly (a photographic dilemma because having the light behind causes you to become a shadow in photos). Sometimes I can feel my eyes begin to water right up in those few minutes! I blame it on getting my eyes dilated for the first time a few months ago; it made me super sensitive to light and very bright light still causes me slight pain. Does this happen to anyone else?!
Those things aside, I have been feeling somewhat nostalgic about those super hot Vegas summers I used to live through (then I quickly remember those few years I had a car with no air conditioning and feel so grateful for the foggy summers in San Francisco!)
