Illesteva sunglasses for pre fall on The Shoe Diet

I must admit, a day like today, with pre fall looming but the temperature being blazing as ever, it's hard to get into the spirit of the season. Reaching in the mindset of my favorite cartoon characters from my childhood and reenacting their wardrobes helps, as Fred Flintstone was constantly battling looking dapper verse the heat.

Indeed, what will go on on my yabba-dabba-do body is the sleeveless vest. One of extra length for extra pleasure, amirite? Rumor has it that this line Jackett was started by none other than the Maroon 5 costume designer. I'm almost certain, but it's impossible to verify anything on the internet by searching 'jackett' so you'll just have to go along with me on this. Either way, it's a good story and their jacket(t)s are great. Fantastic even.

While we're on the topic of gentlemanly though, adhere your silk ascot to your neck. Tie it like the hang loose relaxed gentle-woman you are, who might have just vacationed for a whole summer. No reason to  loose your cool attitude before our first cool front.
