What do you wear when you want to look Summer-y, but bare legs are out of the question because you've been violated by bugs? Might I suggest white on white? White color-blocking is a look I don't think I've ever tried. Apart from the danger (I like a LOT of napkins when I eat!) it's definitely a bit bold. I think the band tee made this look more "rock & roll", though I did wear the preppy version of the same outfit earlier in the week (sub white button-up.)

Isn't this tee great?? Jimmy Eat World is a band I have loved forever (literally, one of the first bands I ever listened to.) They were definitely on my concert bucket list, and I finally got to see them earlier this year in Chattanooga- it was SUCH a great show! I really do love the band, but also thought this was just a cool shirt (y'all know I cannot resist a good graphic tee.)

My first favorite album of theirs, like everyone else, was Bleed American (I had a ragged copy I think I stole from my brother and passed around to my friends in 7th grade.) I haven't listened to their latest album Integrity Blues (that's what the bottom of my shirt says) a whole lot, but the single "Sure and Certain" is great! And Chase this Light is a nod to a more recent favorite album that is really, really good. Not to mention, this bright Summer day and this really awesome mural (not far from where I live!)

I also got some new jeans! This is like my seventh pair of Old Navy Rockstar jeans, they are perfect. I don't know what it is about white jeans that makes me feel so...exposed? They've grown on me already though and they're totally in my packing capsule (hoping to share this on the blog!) for Italy!

YEAH, my journey begins Thursday morning and I'm halfway checked out already! I spent the weekend running some errands (I got a giant phone) and packing, so I'm glad that's mostly out of the way, because things are always the most crazy before leaving for a trip! I just have three-ish days of work before some mega-vacation. If all goes as planned, my August recap will be up on Thursday! TTYL!
