I hope you guys had a great weekend! I am (still) on Cape Cod with my family and it’s so nice to be here. It took me a few days to relax once we arrived but the vacation mindset has finally sunk in. Yesterday we spent the afternoon at the beach and then came home and grilled burgers. My parents’ new dog Muddy (she’s part Welsh Terrier, part Airedale) is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen and Tyrion is quite at home with all this space to run around! Sadly we have to go back to the city tomorrow afternoon, but I’m actually kind of looking forward to being back and getting back to real life.

But anyways, clothes. One of my favorite purchases this summer was the matching white lace crop top + skirt that I wore in this post. All summer long I’ve been mixing up the pieces from the set to wear with separates I already own. I topped the look off with this ultra dramatic necklace. I’ve gotten away from wearing statement pieces this summer, but this necklace was an exception.. it’s just so bold and fun.

    Lovely look! I am wearing a cream crop top (actually goes to my waist -kind of similar to yours) and a striped pencil skirt – both from Old Navy. Loving this look and hoping you are having fun.

    Hey! I’m a quiet, but loyal reader of your blog. I never comment but I had to say that I love you in this shape! You typically wear a fit and flare which you always say flatters you, but you look so pretty here!!! Love the nosiness but the cropped fit of the top.

      I meant boxiness of the top* #thanksautocorrect

      Hi Courtney,
      Thank you so much for saying so! I honestly wasn’t so sure about this outfit when I first put it together, but it turned out to be cuter than I thought! Glad you like it! xx

    I remember you saying once that your blonde hair always looks best when you wear black. TOTALLY agree. I always say that my light brown hair looks longer when I wear black. No one believes me, but it’s so true!! We get it. They don’t get it, but we get it.

    Black & white really suits you! Always felt like blondes can pull off black better than brunettes 🙂 The skirt is gorgeous!
