My Summer Staples

Although I love fashion, I don't typically follow trends too closely.  I know what works on my body, and I tend to stick to that! It isn't often that I see a new look and then truly want to go out and buy the pieces to recreate it for myself.  However, there are two outfits I have seen recently that I have fallen in love with.  


I love the loose off-the-shoulder top paired with form fitting lace shorts.  The juxtaposition of fit creates a boho chic look I adore.  I also love the gold chocker that creates a bit of edge to the outfit.  


I love the neutral colors and the black scarf tied around the waist. The crocodile oversized clutch adds a bit of luxe to this comfortable look.  Perfect for the warmer months!

Bottom Outfit: Weekday white tank/brown maxi skirt/crocodile clutch/Target Black Scarf

  4. Just bought the skirt! FYI. What a trend setter you are. Also, where is that white tank from? It keeps leading back to the lacy scalloped shorts.

  13. I'm with you! While I really like some of the trends popping up, I usually reserve my purchases for the ones I really really like. However, I'm itching to buy a maxi skirt, just haven't found the right one at the right price point.
