Cropped Top and Tube Skirt

Purse: Nine West  | Shoes: Keds

A cropped top with a tube skirt paring is ideal for a nice mild summer day like this one.  Practically though I did need this light-weight cardigan for the moments when the sun hides itself. And of course a punch of color never hurts.

I love this mini skirt, it's just so cute and fun! I kept the rest of the outfit simple and neutral so that the focus can be on the various colors.

Walking Attire - T-shirt and Skirt

I already mentioned this t-shirt in my last post, but I have to say it again: I love these t-shirts!! The vibrant colors are really just added bonuses.

I've probably been wearing more dresses and skirts this summer than any of my previous years, and it has been great for my wardrobe since a lot of these neglected pieces are finally being used and appreciated.

Beach Wear - T-shirt and Maxi Dress

T-Shirt: J.Crew Vintage Cotton Tshirt | Necklace: Forever 21 
| Sunglasses: Little Burgundy
 Maxi Dress: Gap

I see so many people wearing and praising these vintage cotton t-shirts from J.Crew, and they are all absolutely right! 

This maxi dress from Gap is another piece that is so light and breezy. Comfort is key when going to the beach, as the heat and our 2 dogs already kept us preoccupied enough. For extra ease of movement, I knotted the t-shirt and the maxi together (the dress falls all the way to the ankle otherwise).

Jumpsuit and Stripes

Shirt / Jumpsuit: Zara (similar from Asos) | Purse: Joe Fresh | Earrings: Ardene
| Watch: Michael Kors Shoes: Kohl's (identical from J.Crew)

I used to have this Gap Kids denim overall that I wore and loved so much. I also have very fond memories of overall dresses that I used to wear when I was back in elementary school. I therefore HAD to get an upgraded version now, it only makes sense.

I couldn't help but pair this striped shirt with this pair of striped espadrilles - one that looked exactly like a pair from J.Crew's summer shoe collection last year, but at a fraction of the cost from Kohl's.
