 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!



One lace crop top, two ways

I’m not usually a crop top kinda girl, but when I saw this one in Pitaya I knew it was perfect! I decided to style it two different ways: sporty and girly.

The first look is the white lace crop top with a blush wrap maxi skirt. I paired it with my favorite Free People halter bra and some tall gladiators. I’m not gonna lie…I would probably wear some gold wedges with this skirt but I lost mine for the time being and decided to make the look a little more edgy with the sandals. Any type of sandal would work too. You could do some cute flip flops, any wedge, or even Converse would be fun as well!

The second look is the top with stretchy black shorts. These are beyond comfortable and can go with so many things in the Summer! I paired this look with my Converse and a monogram baseball cap. This outfit can go anywhere!

P.S. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes! I had an amazing weekend in Indianapolis with my family and closest friends. Shopping, eating and hanging with the people you love most is the best way to spend your birthday!
