Summer is almost officially over, but the heatwave has lingered long enough to feel like these photos could have been shot in this past week. In reality, these are from a few weeks ago, but who's keeping track?! Dayle and I spent an evening in Kensington market shooting summery looks and ended up at El Rey Mezcal Bar, seated on their palm tree adorned, tropical-feeling patio where we finished our night with the most refreshing beverages.
I wore a faux suede cut-out crop top which I had been putting off wearing until I had the perfect bottom for it: high-waisted white culottes. I had to cycle through several pairs (buy, scrutinize, return, repeat) until I finally ordered these flawless babies from ASOS. I can always count on ASOS! They hit at just the right place on the calf, are the ideal high-waisted-ness, and are the purest white (absolute must). They're sold out now and admittedly out of season given it will be October in a few weeks, but I linked a similar pair below anyway, as I'm sure to be wearing mine for many spring/summers to come.
