Last weekend we had the most amazing weather that was reminiscent of early summer. The clearest skies and the brightest sunshine had everyone outside, clamoring for brunch on a patio! For me, I was happy to ditch my sweaters and leather jacket for the weekend. Jason and I spend the day walking around the shops of Buckhead and having a cocktail (or two!).
Because of the crisp air and strong sunshine, I opted for an off-the-shoulder top that I had originally planned to put away for the summer. Lately I’ve had warm weather outfits on my mind since I’ll be heading to Miami for my friend Alexa’s bachelorette party. Since I’m stocking up on my vacation-wear, I’ve been looking for more items that won’t break the bank. You may have seen this recent Self-Portrait inspired dress, and this top was another amazing find that I could resist! Because summer isn’t here to stay, I wore my new top with my studded jeans that are my go-to’s season after season. However, I can totally see this flirty off the shoulder number with both shorts and white jeans. Lastly, I finished my look with mirrored Dior sunglasses and my favorite pair of nude sandals. Since that perfect Saturday, the weather has cooled down again and my top took its place in the back of my closet. But, I know that’s only temporary, and I can’t wait to wear this pick over and over again this season!
I hope everyone had a nice weekend! Thanks again for bearing with me as Jason and I have been getting settled into our new home. But now – it’s time to get back into the swing of things with the blog. It’s so funny…my first week in Atlanta, and I was still wearing all black and burning to death in my leather jacket. I quickly realized that I needed to switch up my go-to’s in my wardrobe . That doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll abandon my black ripped jeans and t-shirts (that’s what I’m wearing today), but I definitely see my style and wardrobe choices updating slightly. Stay tuned to see how this plays out further!
Well, before I left New York, I got the chance to shoot one of my new favorite Spring/Summer tops from StyleWe. You might remember I rocked this dress in Miami, but I was saving the top for warmer weather in NYC. I love StyleWe, because they have some great fun styles that won’t break the bank. This top really spoke to me because I love the flirty and girly design (give me bows all day!!!), but combines menswear details such as classic 3/4 sleeves and a pin-stripe pattern. I opted for navy (it also comes in light blue), because I thought it would be killer with some white ripped jeans for the summer. For this look, I paired the top with studded L’Agence jeans (these are incredible) and a simple nude heel. The top’s fabric is super soft and comfortable, so I see myself rocking this one on repeat. With the stress of the move, Jason and I haven’t really had the chance to go out and re-explore the city. BUT, with the long weekend coming up, we’re really excited to hit the town, and I think I’ll be re-wearing this exact look!
