In my opinion, certain fabrics evoke certain seasons. Tweed makes me think of crisp air and Fall blazers. Lush fur makes me think of the bitter cold of Winter. And floral chiffon is a sure sign of Spring! Just like those, gingham always makes me think of the joys of summertime. The check fabric induces memories of pool parties, picnics in the park, and long sunshiney days.
You may have seen me rock the print last year… and that top is totally still one of my fav’s! But this year, I really wanted a dress or skirt…something a little more breezy for the blazing Georgia heat. My friends at Shein were happy to help and sent me this summery two piece! It’s the best of both worlds… I can wear piece separately, show a little midriff, or even layer the top over the skirt to make it look like a dress! Besides the versatility, I love that this look is so affordable. Can you believe that both pieces only cost $28! Yep, you read that right! So what are you waiting for? You deserve a new outfit for those few remaining Summer Fridays!
You guys know that I LOVE wearing white in the Summertime! And I have to admit, my first inclination is to first reach for an easy, breezy sundress. Last year, I took a leap with a white jumpsuit, so this year I’ve decided to go for something different…white separates. Enter these cream-colored pieces of perfection from Club Monaco. First of all, I’m absolutely obsessed with the dramatic fold-over neckline. I think it brings something a little more structured and “grown-up” to the off-the-shoulder trend. I can see myself wearing this top with trousers, cropped jeans, and even a full skirt for even more drama and a 50’s vibe. Speaking of drama, I’m in love with these cropped cream pants. The color and fabric scream sophistication, but the wide leg and half-tie belt make them seem cool and effortless.
I wore this look for a day of shopping around Buckhead and a trip to the museum. And I know what you’re thinking…no, I didn’t spill anything on it! To finish my look, I threw on my fav cat-eye sunnies from Dior and my new straw bag (from my recent lust list) – a gift, courtesy of Jason. The pop of pink really brought the casual Summer vibes to my daytime look, but you can always wear a clutch or evening bag to take this look from day to a white hot night!
