Music on 3rd is a monthly event in Marquette during the summer where different musicians play up and down Third Street.  There’s music of every genre and it’s a blast to walk up and down the street, stopping to listen and have a drink here and there.  Last week my friend Ashley and I brought our girls.  The goal?  To walk Ashley’s tiny baby, Aria, to sleep . . . and get G to work off some energy so the mamas could have a beer.  We all have goals, people.  This is our goal for a late summer evening: sleepy babies and beer.  And looking cute.  Which brings me to my next point…this “uniform” of sorts.  It’s easy, it’s comfy, it’s cute: denim cut-offs, soft drapey tees and complicated shoes (heels optional).

Aria was drifting off to sleep when we came across a young singer (Anna Clifton – seriously check out her instagram) who did amazing covers of songs like Christina Perri’s Arms and Vance Joy’s Riptide, which were PERFECT for Greenlea to dance to.  First goal?  Achieved.  Onto the next:  Pizza and beer.

Wearing:

Moto Jacket (also available in gray and khaki . . . a favorite layering piece!)

Sole Society Sandals c/o – super comfortable and SOFT leather, also available in tan and black but I’m loving olive for late summer/fall . . . like these booties. . . or these flat sandals.

Lush Pocket tee (size small . . . I love the bit of bagginess and it’s available in lots of colors)

Denim Shorts (similar – size waaaaay up for the baggier fit)

Convertible Satchel Purse c/o – also available in burgundy and tan . . . large enough to hold diapers and essentials but small enough to throw over your shoulder or stroller

Initial Necklace (similar . . . I’m loving initial necklaces lately and Moon & Lola has soooo many awesome personalization options . . . a great idea for Christmas shopping!)

Sunglasses (similar)

Wearing:

Plaid Oversize Shirt – available in lots of different colors and SUPER soft . . . looks great half-tucked or worn like a jacket.

Alternative Melange Tee – also available in a v-neck, I’m obsessed with these soft t-shirts . . . not too tight and easy to dress up with a statement necklace.

M Gemi Sandals  – the softest leather and super comfortable, M. Gemi makes shoes in Italian leather that are worth the investment . . . but if that’s more than you want to spend try these instead.

Bib Necklace (similar . . . I’m drooling over this one as well . . . I love how a bib necklace dresses up anything from a simple t-shirt to a fancy dress)

Julian Backpack (I hardly have to say anything about this bag because we all RAVE about it, but the new colors are stunning)

Wearing:

Romper (similar . . . and on sale for $6!  This one has long pants. Seriously . . . rompers are the cutest thing EVER.)

Bows (20 bows for $10?  Yes, please.)

Sandals (Similar – silver goes with pretty much everything and these have a memory foam insole for more comfort.)

 

Cheers to successful summer evenings!

XOXO,
