Yep you read that right, a summer sweater in the Texas heat! This zebra print summer sweater is lightweight and breathable, so it does work with warmer weather. As someone who is always cold, I love summer sweaters for indoor events. They will keep me a little warmer indoors where the a/c is blasting, but I can easily go sit outside and be comfortable.
The tan color of this print gives it such a chic and dressed up feel. It pairs perfectly with white shorts or jeans for a sophisticated and polished look. You can change out your shoes to work with different occasions like flat sandals for more casual or nude colored block heel sandals for a dressier look. This top will also transition well into fall by changing out the white jeans for dark wash flared jeans and heels or skinny jeans with booties.
Stay tuned next week, I have one more week of summer outfits for you before we start transitioning into fall. We will be talking all about shorts next week to get you through this final month of summer which is always the hottest here in Houston. After that, I will be sharing how I’m transitioning some of my summer pieces to fall and of course all things Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which starts next week for the top 2 Nordy Club tiers.

Hello Ladies! So did ya’ll preview the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale over the weekend? I took a little peek and decided flared jeans are on my priority list this year! I picked up this affordable option last year and wear them so much! I decided to splurge on a pair this year. Dark wash flared jeans are great for a casual office environment, creating a dressed up casual look, and transforming flowy tops into a boho chic outfit.
The semi-cropped length, flowy style, and floral print of this top transform into boho chic when paired with flared jeans. I added in my espadrille wedges to complete the look. Want to make this top have more of a dressed up feel? A few weeks ago, I paired it with white shorts and flat sandals for a different look. You have to love that versatility.
I like that the dark blue of these jeans pulls out the darker shades of blue in the floral top as well as helps the white and orange really pop! This blue floral tank top is super flowy and lightweight which makes it perfect for the summer heat.

While I haven’t done too much jean shopping this summer, I knew I wanted to give a pair of light wash jeans a try. A couple summers ago, I invested in a lighter gray jean and wore them all summer! I loved the lighter shade with my summer tops, and the lighter color had more of a summer feel than my dark wash and black jeans. This summer, I decided to try out a pair of light blue jeans to give me that same light and bright look.
When thinking about how to style light wash jeans for summer, I start with the occasion – a dressed up or dressed down look. Most of my outfits lately are dress down, so no need for my fancy heels. With light wash, you can add in bright colors and prints like this rainbow striped top or go for a chic basics only look of a black tee or white tank top. I tried a few different casual shoes with these jeans. Wedges and my mule slides were my favorite pick. Don’t worry this jean color also looks great with flat sandals.
An alternative casual look, cuff your jean and add a fun sneaker. A graphic tee or solid tank top topped off with a headband or baseball cap to complete your look. If you are wanting to dress up your light wash jeans, I love pairing them with colorful and printed shoes. Floral prints being my top choice! Strappy heels like this pair are a great option! Add on a chic black top for the perfect evening outfit.
What is your favorite denim shade for summer?

Hello Hello! Today’s look really makes me want to go grab brunch with my gals because this is exactly what I would wear! My dark floral off the shoulder top pairs perfectly with white cotton shorts or white denim for summer and easily transitions into fall with black or dark wash jeans. I wore this top to our house closing with light wash denim, and the two complimented each other perfectly.
The off the shoulder area has a smocked detail which I think helps hold it in place. It does move a bit, but it stays down pretty well. The bottom is a banded waist which I think is perfect for pairing with shorts! It gives the look of a tucked in top without actually dealing with keeping it perfectly tucked in.
How was your weekend? I really started tackling the organization of my bathroom and closet and made some good progress. I made a Target run for some under the sink containers and ordered these bins to help create a dresser area in the master closet. My next big project will be to organize all my hanging clothes again. I like them in order of sleeve length and style like all my plaids together, solid tanks together, going out tops together, etc. Do you organize your hanging clothes or just toss them all in?
