Happy Friday!! This summer crop top is one of my top purchases this season. Not going to lie, I was a little nervous about the whole crop top idea, but I think the length works perfectly with the slightly higher waist of these distressed jeans. I’m not really showing any skin unless I move certain ways. It is also the perfect length to pair with shorts for my height. Since I am on the petite side, longer tees usually end up looking like I’m not wearing shorts and have to be tucked in. This top is a great length for a loose, non-tucked in look with shorts for me.
I wore this outfit for an outdoor ballet followed by drinks also outside, and it was perfect for the warm evening. This top is lightweight and the movement really helps keep you a little cooler.
I’m really loving this affordable denim brand. I have two pairs from them that I have had in constant rotation lately. For under $50, the quality is really good. They hold their shape throughout the day and with multiple wears. The denim is slightly thinner than some of my higher end jeans, but I personally like that for a Texas summer. It helps you stay cool when it’s 90 degrees even after dark.
I hope ya’ll have a great weekend!!

Happy Friday!! How was your week? I attended a Justin Timberlake concert earlier this week, and it was soooo good! He’s such a good performer! I’m super pumped for this upcoming 3 day weekend. I have plans to spend as much time poolside as possible, and probably sale shop!
It’s no secret I love taking super casual pieces and finding ways to dress them up. I ordered this tee as something I could toss on over a swimsuit and wear with shorts to a pool party. I also think it is the cutest tee to dress up for a casual night out. Heels are the easiest way to dress up any outfit. I went with these taupe block heel sandals because I think they work for both casual and dressier looks.
Lace bralettes are the perfect companion to dress up an oversized tee. I love that it allows your tee to slightly fall off shoulder and still be cute. White jeans are another way to dress up a casual look, but I love mixing in distressed jeans to keep the look a bit more casual. I also added in some statement earrings because you can never go wrong with a great pair of earrings to enhance an outfit.
I hope ya’ll have a great long weekend!!

We are officially starting to get those hot summer nights, so I wanted to share a casual Summer outfit idea perfect for meeting friends for an evening cocktail. My favorite part of this look is these gorgeous pink statement earrings. They are the perfect pop of color, a fun design, and lightweight. Bonus, they come in at $13. Since I love wearing black, they will be the perfect addition to many of my outfits this summer.
I’m always on the hunt for lightweight tops for summer. The material on this bandeau top is perfect for the heat. It breathes, but it’s not see through. The stretch panel makes this top a little more comfortable and gives you more ease of movement than other bandeau styles. Cognac brown wedges were the perfect compliment to the black and pink and add a little bit more color to the outfit. I went with wedges for a more casual look, but you could easily dress this whole look up with some block heel sandals.
Ya’ll have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday you guys!
I always love styling and shopping for the latest trends like off the shoulder tops, statement earrings, and block heel sandals, but I firmly believe every closet should have a great set of staples. Each season has a few of it’s own must have pieces, so I wanted to share a few of my must have summer wardrobe basics.
Wardrobe staples are those items that can be incorporated into a variety of outfits to really maximize your closet. For me, it all starts with the shoes. A cognac brown or nude wedge sandal is a must during summer. They pair great with jeans, shorts, and dresses. I like to wear them when I wear shorts because I think they help make your legs look longer and leaner. They are the perfect shoe to wear to any outdoor events or parties because they will not sink into the grass. I found this pair for under $100 and have been loving them!
Second, you need a few solid color tank tops. I have this tank top in white and black which is perfect for wearing solo with a statement necklace or layering under a kimono, plus this fun olive color to pair with jeans and shorts. These tank tops are thick and not see through, plus the straps perfectly cover my bra straps. I also love that they are a slightly longer in length.
Third, a neutral crossbody bag. I have had this one for a few years, and Sole Society brings it back every year. It’s one of my most used purses during the summer. It’s a light color with a unique design, and it holds everything I need including sunglasses in a case. I just added this new bag from Sole Society, so I will probably be rotating between these two all season.
Fourth, distressed jeans. Summer style tends to be a bit more casual, so it’s the perfect season to pull out your distressed jeans. You can pair these jeans with trendy tops or a basic tee or tank and be good to go. Distressed jeans are also fun to dress up with heels for a night out. The distressed jeans I linked are the latest pair I have purchased. The quality is pretty good for $45. They recommend sizing up, but for me the fit was true to size.
My last must have is a few simple jewelry pieces. Ya’ll know I love me some statement jewelry, but when it’s 100 degrees out I tend to reach for my daintier pieces like these two necklaces, a simple pair of studs, and a gold bangle. My necklaces are from Gorjana, and I love that her necklaces are designed to be layered together.
There you have it, the pieces that live at the core of my closet. Almost every outfit I wear this summer will incorporate at least one of these items. Trendy is fun, but never neglect the core of your wardrobe!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope ya’ll have a great weekend!
