 This has been the Summer of rompers, off the shoulder & matching sets. This particular set can be dressed up super easily (heck, I wore it to a wedding pretty much) or dressed down. I like pieces that are versatile so I gravitate towards buying them. This set is from Pitaya, the boutique I work at, and $14 a piece…yeah a steal. I decided to make it casual with a long cardigan and some slip on sneakers.

This look is good for Summer, but can work in the Fall too. In the Fall you could wear booties and an olive green cargo jacket. I have stopped buying strictly Summer pieces and now I’m working on making my closet transition easily into Fall. I know it’s only July, but a shopaholic like me needs to plan ahead. I like pieces that can easily go from season to season.

Have a great weekend!

  37. You dressed this look down very well. I’m not a girl who wears a lot of stones but that necklace is so pretty. It’s a stone but not heavy and weighted looking. Great find.

  38. This sweater looks SO cozy!! Love this dressed down look – I think I will have to copy this. =)

    I hope you are having a great week so far!
