Summer Blues

Crop & Skirt 2-Piece Set: Rococo, Shoes: Steve Madden, Hat: H&M (similar), Blazer: H&M, Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters, Bag: (similar) Bracelets: ILY Couture and Tory Burch, Rings: H&M

As summer is quickly coming to an end, I have been searching my closet for summer pieces I want to make sure I wear before it gets too cold.  In the spring I usually purchase a lot of summer clothes in anticipation of warmer weather.  What happens most of the time is that summer flies by and I forget about some of the pieces I bought! That is the case with this 2-piece set.  I purchased it in May and I had forgotten about it all summer. I wanted to make sure I wore it before I had to wait another year! I really loved the idea of a high waist skirt and crop set, and I had been searching for the perfect one.  I found this one at a local boutique in Northville, MI, and as soon as I saw it I snatched it up before it was too late (they usually only have one or two per size and things go quickly as soon as they come in). I loved the fun print with all different blues and a little black.  I also loved the unique back of the crop.  

I also wanted to show that this look can easily go from day to night simply by adding a blazer.  When I first started wearing crops I was a little nervous to have my stomach showing so I would wear them with a sweater or blazer.  That way I could show a little skin without feeling too exposed.  If you are hesitant about crops I definitely recommend starting with something high waisted and adding a blazer for a little more coverage. 

Summer hats are another summer favorite of mine.  I love different styled fedoras and I love a big floppy hat.  They are so practical for the summer when you are near the water or at the beach (which I usually am a lot in the summer).  They are functional and adorable, how could you go wrong! I'm trying to enjoy every last bit of sunshine before school starts after Labor Day. Thanks for stopping by!
