Happy first day of Summer! Is it bad I thought summer was already here in Texas?? Judging from the 90-100 degree days we’ve been having it’s been hard to differentiate! This is why I need to find a summer vacation spot where I’m not profusely sweating everywhere I go. Or I just need to start dressing like I’m going to be laying out on a beach everyday! Since neither of those are viable options at this point I have to dress strategically and comfortably when you really want nothing touching your skin at all.
If you’re still on the hunt for a beautiful summer top I’ve got the perfect one for you. I always love finding pieces that will stand out above the rest whether it be in the fabric, construction or intricate detailing. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my basics, and this outfit is beyond basic black and white, but I do love to wear something that is practical yet fun at the same time.
One of the things that sold me on this beautiful blouse, besides the fact that it is under $40, was the cute little bee detailing on the front and honeycomb design. Funny story though; this top actually has short sleeves and is supposed to be worn as a cold shoulder top but honestly the fit was much better with wearing it as simple tank top (as shown). The ruffle detailing where the sleeves are look like its a natural part of the top. If you have a smaller bust I would suggest wearing it the normal way but for us bustier gals this top was a little on the frumpy side.
I kept my accessories pretty simple and monochromatic on this look solely because there is so much going on with the top itself. For me, wearing black is second nature so I kept things consistent with accessorizing. These Splendid heels have the most gorgeous wood heel detailing and have been some of my summer go-to heels. They are actually on sale for under $100 right now but are limited in sizes so don’t wait long!! If you’re in the market for a classic, black bag this Henri Bendel has been my go-to for quite some time now. They are ALSO having a huge sale on their site right now!
