I think monochromatic is the way to go to and perfect for petite frames. Can you tell it’s a staple in my closet? I like how it lengthens me and makes such a statement. It’s so chic!
Now let’s bask in these shades. The rose gold tone definitely finishes the over all look. Though my handbag may have a gold finish, the two don’t clash. I find this funny because I used to be obsessed over NOT mixing metals. But now I love the idea when put together in subtle ways.
What is your closet staple? Share below, I would love to know .. ❤
I don’t know about you but I think linen is the best warm weather wear! The lightweight fabric works for those humid days and can be dressed up or down. I paired it here with a sheer polka dot blouse and I’d like to say this is my favorite outfit to date. I purchased this blouse during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last fall and am now just dressing it up. I stowed it away and completely forgot about it but it’s such a classic piece.
Spring doesn’t linger long enough here. It stays for what seems like two weeks and we are straight into Summer so these pieces work into both seasons. I’ve worn these linen trousers with trainers and like the casual effect. They definitely work with all kinds of shoes which is a HUGE plus.
I often find myself looking for balance between classic pieces I have had for years and trendy pieces that I keep for just one season. Sometimes my entire outfit is all trends and that’s what I am trying to get out of. I’d like to stay in the range of a few classic pieces and then incorporate a trend or two into the outfit. It’s a work in progress but it’s surely coming into place.
Banana Republic has done it again! I usually find myself scrolling pass the trousers section because their 00P are still big on my extra petite frame, but these were a head turner and more. They’re definitely a classic piece and so summery. I can see myself wearing these for many summers to come.
As I previously mentioned about their sizes, these trousers ran bigger than what their petite guide lists. And by “bigger”, the waist in these trousers were 3 inches wider. Since I loved them so much, I had them tailored to my normal 24″. I kept the hem as is because I choose to wear heels with them. But I am actually thinking of buying another pair just so I can have it hemmed to wear with flats. Decisions … Decisions ..
Since I purchased these on a deal, I had them tailored and the sale price + the tailor’s price, came out to the pant’s original cost. So in all, this was a great buy. I may wait for another deal though for that second pair.
What’s your take? Would you buy a second pair you LOVE to wear with flats on occasions like this? Comment below and let me know! 🙂
Thank you for visiting! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
I am absolutely in LOVE with the straw bag trend this season! Whenever I see one, I am reminded of how connected we are because these bags come from all over the world. There’s so much culture and effort that’s put into creating it. Soludos definitely captured my love for this Merida Pom Pom Basket.
And between cultures, lies some water and sand. The sunset was so beautiful here and whats more is how this place could pull off as a mini Bermuda. I haven’t been there but from pictures, it is breathtakingly serene.
I could’ve danced all night with the sand in my toes as the slow tides came in. And the night sky would’ve been filled with stars and the breeze would be just right. But of course, everything comes to an end. The beach has to sleep, closing it’s land just shy of ten.
…There will be more of these summer days where there’s no agenda but just play.
Thanks so much for reading. I hope your weekend was filled with sunshine and smiles.
I came upon this tee while watching a Youtuber showcase some of her Summer wardrobe pieces. At first, it was just another tee with words on it, but every time I came by it on Nordstrom’s online shop, it grew more and more on me. And then it dawned on me how similar it looked to Gucci’s tee. The upside, Topshop’s piece doesn’t come with a hefty price so I snagged a medium. This was such a hot item then that there weren’t any smalls left.
While this tee was on it’s way to my home, I did occasionally check online to see if they had restocked a small and they hadn’t. At this point I was still skeptical about keeping it since I’m not keen on over-sized pieces. And reason being that it would swallow my small frame.
When I opened the package, it wasn’t as big as I had imagined. And it was also 100% cotton which meant if I wanted it to fit more snug, I can wash it in hot water and dry it on high heat (best way to shrink cotton or linen one size down).
In all, this was a good purchase. I wanted to change up this business skirt so choosing a tee over a blouse was a win. Plus, this little denim jacket screams casual as well.
Thanks so much for reading. I hope everyone is having a good holiday. (It’s my half birthday on July 4th so I’m most definitely going to enjoy it!) Happy 4th Friends!!
