My Summer Staples

It’s been a while, friends, I know. This summer was particularly busy for me! Between traveling, researching family history, starting Curly Conversations, and just plain old Blogger’s block, I’ve managed to neglect Theory & Practice. Fear not! I’m back on the scene (with gangsta’ lean!) and ready to talk about my summer staples.
This summer was an odd one, weather-wise, in the Bay Area. It ended up being mostly cooler days, with a sprinkle of warm and hot ones, so one had to check the weather daily and dress accordingly. Checkout three of my summer faves below. Yes, I wore boots and blazers this summer. City adventures practically required them, with it’s cold and windy days!

Safari Chic

I so lucked up on this outfit. After debating over three other ensembles while getting ready for the Raheem DeVaughn concert, I finally had a spark for an outfit. FINALLY! You know that desperate feeling you have when you’re standing with your bath towel around you, in front of your closet, with no clue of what to wear or the time to ponder? Yeah, that was me. And then the idea for this outfit hit me — and not a moment too soon.

The concert was good– once it got started. 2 hours later. Let me tell you, standing in 4-inch heels for 2 hours irritated me to no end. My feet were mutinous by the time they opened the doors to be seated and I thought for sure they’d detach from body in defiance. But, you know, Raheem sounded good.
