Dahlias and Off the Shoulder
Three things I really love are: dahlias (my mom's favorite flowers!), mirrored sunnies, and going to the Farmer's Market on Saturday/Sunday mornings. I love the vibe that a Farmer's Market usually has: communal, friendly, and colorful. I live in color as you can tell from the majority of my blog posts. While I love blacks, whites, browns and greys in my wardrobe, you'll most likely find me in something bright and colorful, and I love that Farmer's Markets have beautiful flowers, fresh fruits and vegetables, and more - all in full, living color. Like this last post I styled for a fun Memorial Day outfit here, which also transitions perfectly to a fun 4th of July outfit!
As you can tell from this outfit, I was absolutely the fanciest bitch at the market this Saturday morning, I opted for a bit of sass instead of yoga pants and it was worth it, I snagged these beautiful dahlias after all. These are my mom's favorite flower and every time I see them they make me think of her. Speaking of my mom, when we went shopping recently we stopped into White House Black Market and I saw this necklace, and knew I had to have it. I've been wearing it on repeat with any possible outfit I can style it with. I never actually realized how cute a lot of the jewelry from there was, but I'm also really loving this layered multi-row necklace, and this tassel drop necklace.
How cute is the back detailing on this top? It's selling out super quick from Banana Republic, but it's on sale for under $40 and an absolute steal! If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see that I've already worn it multiple times! One thing I love about off the shoulder tops is that you can easily make them appear fancy or dress them down, so they're great for multiple occasions and events.
Summer styling is all about function. This is easily an outfit that I'd wear to brunch with the fiancé or girlfriends, or out to a fun dinner or shopping during the day. These Lulu's strappy sandals are my GO TO this summer, I've been wearing them all the time. I love love love them. Full outfit deets below as well!
Thanks for stopping by!
