Summer is Cropping Up
Happy Monday! I’m back again with a new outfit to share with you! I’ve been sharing a lot of dresses lately, but I’m switching things up today with a more casual look – jeans!
There’s something just so great about dressing up a pair of simple denim jeans with fun accessories. When I’m not wearing dresses, I’ve been living in cropped jeans this summer. Unlike a fun patterned dress, there are so many more options for styling cropped jeans – you can dress them up with heels or wedges and a flowy blouse, you can dress them down with a t-shirt and simple accessories, or you can meet somewhere in the middle like I did with today’s outfit.
A lot of times I get stuck in a rut of simply throwing on a white v-neck, some jewelry, and calling it good. I often times forget how much fun it can be to wear a patterned blouse with simple jewelry. For this outfit I started with a pair of darker cropped denim and the rose patterned tank top. Since I went with gold accented sandals (that I scored on sale!), I added in pops of gold jewelry to pull in accents of gold throughout the entire outfit.
A quick note about the bag – I absolutely love Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags. The bag photographed here is one I borrowed from a friend, but I own a few in varying sizes and shapes as well. They are made of durable and amazing soft leather and each season there’s a beautiful array of new colors. If you’re looking to invest in a new bag I highly recommend a Marc Jacobs bag. My friend has carried the one pictured here almost exclusively for 4 years and it still looks fabulous!
I’m really pleased with how the ensemble turned out! It was perfect for dinner and drinks with friends this weekend!
