Say hello to my favorite outfit of this summer! A versatile outfit for sunny brunch dates, sandy beaches, and happy sailing! I can't compliment this J.Crew top enough. The fit is comfortable, the fabric light, and the color bright and worthy for this upcoming season. The chandelier sleeves give an illusion of slimmer arms and the off-shoulder style accentuates your shoulders [great for getting a tan!] A top this pretty can only be paired with classic white chino shorts to make the color pop. I accessorized with my gold accented clutch [also seen HERE] and wedges [yes, they're comfortable and a footwear must for the summer].
The key to dressing your best for the summer is to have a collection of pieces similar to this ensemble. The festive hues for this season include pineapple yellow, sunwashed aqua, electric blue, hot red, apple green. Pretty much any bright color under the sun with an adjective in the description. Don't forget to get your white chino shorts in addition to a few colorful others, remember that neutrals match anything [try to get colors that can match as many of your tops]. Finally, don't forget to dress your feet with staple wedges or espadrille flats to tie the entire outfit together [for more summer ideas look HERE, HERE, and HERE].
