Crop it, crop it crop it low girl

Crop top for a night out? Why not. Keeping with my rule that it has to be paired with a longer separate, and going all black this time.

This particular top has some killer back detail!

Midi type skirts have been a favourite of mine for years because I’m tall, but this year they’re finally trendy! And you can see why. They’re so much fun to dance in.

I went to a pool party this weekend, and kept it simple with the Hawaiian Sunset print from J. Crew. The long sleeves on the popover were perfect for when the temperature cooled down in the evening.

The little sunglasses necklace from Marc by Marc Jacobs was my favourite touch.

Bermuda shorts and tropical prints

image

Despite the title of this post, this is a perfect outfit for work in the summer. Most offices and work places will allow a 10 inch Bermuda short, and of course a classic black blazer.

Of course, not all workplaces may be so forgiving of a blouse with a print like this, but I’m lucky enough to work in a place that does! This is the “Vacationland” print blouse by J. Crew. And it’s almost enough…

A playsuit is my idea of a comfortable alternative to shorts and a tee shirt outfit for a casual night out. I wore this to a baseball game on Canada Day with a bunch of my coworkers.

It was hot and sunny out, so a hat and large sunglasses were required. These are the Frankie’s by Quay Eyewear.

This romper came with a ribbon tie, but I added my own belt for an extra pop.

I love this Lion King tank top from Hot Topic, but I wasn’t really sure it was something I could work into my day to day wardrobe. I guess I had forgotten the golden rule of the season, a statement necklace is the solution for everything!

I picked the J. Crew stone burst necklace, because the colours complement the shirt perfectly!

Maybelline Nail Tattoos

I came across these Maybelline Colorshow Nail Tattoos at the pharmacy the other day, and I figured I’d give them a try! They were easy to apply, and three days in they are holding up well.

This is “The Financial District”. I’m looking forward to trying the other patterns!

Play time

Playsuits are so trendy this year, but since it won’t really fit my work wardrobe, I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of money. I picked this one up at winners for less than $20.00.

I paired it with a sunhat and a nice leather bag to dress it up for a perfect weekend look!

My “Sweet Nothings” necklace by In God We Trust is just the right finishing touch.

The Neon Museum

image

I’ve always wanted to go to the Neon Museum in Las Vegas, and I finally got the chance. I wore the Cove Floral Surf Dress from J. Crew, and a pair of Cheap Monday sunglasses. I think a lot of people are put off by the fabric of this dress because it’s so unconventional, but it was perfect for a hot day, because it doesn’t wrinkle!

Here are some of the other photos from the day.

Travel style

These days people are less content to fly in their yoga pants and Uggs. But just because you want to be stylish doesn’t mean you can’t be comfortable.
