Sometimes….simple is best. Dark denim and a perfect light weight woven tee by Lush make for a super classic put together look. I have totally fallen in love with Lush for tons of basics. They have great classic tees, perfect tunics and great staple dresses. Plus Lush is a super affordable brand.

PS- Is it just me or do you guys have trouble falling asleep at night due to the thought of Christmas and Thanksgiving??? Seriously, I can’t quit thinking about recipes and decorations and candles….it’s a problem. Luckily I’ve got some good ole Zzz Quil to help me out. HA  Happy Sleeping!!! #ZzzQuil

Ok,…so remember a couple weeks ago I posted a look featuring a crop top paired with skinny cargo pants??? Well, if you didn’t get a chance to see it it’s here. I know not everyone is totally comfortable wearing a crop top (especially me), so I wanted to style the same crop top in a way that is a bit more conservative. It goes to show that you can take most any article of clothing and style it in a way that will totally fit your comfort level and style.

Here, I paired the same top with a high waisted, very flowing maxi skirt. To ensure that the top would not “ride” up, I belted it with a large somewhat statement belt. And ta-da- a fun way to wear a crop top.

I love neutrals. There is definitely no denying it. On most days I am wearing comfy denim with a neutral top of some kind. Mixing them all together somehow works perfectly. I love this look, all of my favorites wrapped into one outfit.

There are so many things I LOVE about this top, I kind of don’t know where to start.

  • First, I love, love, love this neckline. It’s unique and gives an otherwise simple top something extra. No need to even where a necklace.
  • Second, the color is perfection. It’s not a super dark red, but more of a coral / orange red. Great for a fun summer pop of color. (PS this color is also being called Poppy…which I love)
  • Third, the fabric is so light weight and comfy. With the extreme heat that most people are experiencing this is much appreciated!

I know a lot of people either like to order online to avoid the crowds or because they don’t have a store near by. So I have included some dressing room pictures below (not the best quality) as well as a try on video below so you can see how these items fit as well as sizing information. I sized way down in a lot of things. I like an oversized look, but some items are sized way big.

Flirty Floral

I recently found this top at H&M and fell in love. It’s so feminine with the off the shoulder, floral print. (comes in several color options) Because it’s so feminine, I wanted to style it in a way that would balance it out. I paired it with some skinny cargo style pants and edgier heels.

Ok, so let me be real for a minute. I am in my 30’s (barely) and a mother of two. So, normally I would not be making my trip to Target in a top that shows off my mid section. But I also love fashion, and crop tops are big right now….so I wanted and felt like I needed to incorporate them into a look. This is something that I might wear to a casual night out with my husband.

Also…..keep your eye out for a post in the near future featuring this same top, but styled in a way that is a bit less revealing!

Boho/Hippy Vibes

5 Quick Tips for a Boho/Hippy Vibe:

  1. Fringe & Lace– anything that has fringe and/or lace are definitely hippy-ish. Whether it’s fringe booties or a lacey romper it’s a perfect way to get the look.
  2. Accessorize– Throwing a hat on automatically steps your look up. Add tons of layered bracelets plus a cute cross body bag.
  3. Flare (bellbottom) or boot cut jeans– Flare jeans are perfect for this look, but if you just use a boot cut pair you can still get the vibe.
  4. Wedges– any shoe with a wedge will work, but a cork wedge is perfect!
  5. Braids-Put a couple braids in your hair for a quick boho look.

I know….another one of these tops. I told you I can’t get enough!!! Anyway, I had to share this one with you asap. I just picked it up at H&M a couple days ago and it was such a good deal that I’m not even going to tell you how much I paid for it. The print and color are summer perfection. I just love the palm leaf print…it’s everywhere right now.

I can’t find this exact top online but it’s definitely still in stores!

Balanced Edge

One of the most important things when creating an outfit is balance. Often, off the shoulder pieces are very feminine because it shows off your neck and shoulders. So pairing an off the shoulder top with distressed denim and a choker adds a little edge to an otherwise feminine outfit.

As fast as the last two months have flown by, I’m positive that the 4th of July will be here before we know it!!! I love wearing blue and white year round, but adding in some red instantly makes your outfit 4th of July appropriate. The ruffle on this shirt is so feminine and is easily balanced out with a good pair of distressed white denim.

I just love finding staple pieces that are a bit unique. I love the detail of this top. The color is perfectly neutral but the open back and v cut add just a touch more interest. I can see myself wearing this through out all the seasons as a great layering piece, but also just right for summer!!!
