Summer is coming to an end, and as excited as I am to break out my fall clothing, I’ve been soaking up the sunshine and 90 degree weather as much as possible! You all know how much of a summer girl I am. There is nothing better than throwing on a dress or romper and heading out the door. In the colder months, I spend so much time layering up, I know these warm romper days will be the days I dream of in the dead of winter!
Would you believe me if I told you this romper was under $15?! A stripe romper is almost just as classic as going with a neutral black or white, and I am excited to wear it in the early fall with a cargo jacket! For reference, I am wearing a size small.
This month, I have challenged myself to not buy anything new and get better at shopping my own closet. This can be the extreme challenge for those of us who love to shop (hello, my fellow shopaholics), but I was excited to pull out some pieces that hadn’t seen the light of day in awhile (and to save some money after the damage the Nordstrom sale did to my wallet last month).
This top was one I picked up at Forever 21 a few years ago, but you can get the look by shopping some of these fabulous floral options here. Typically, Forever 21 pieces are not ones that have a very long closet life, but I was still drawn in to the bright floral print and flowy fit, so this one continues to make it past my closet purges. Pairing it with my favorite scallop hem skirt was a must. The bright yellow and blue really popped against the crisp white! I kept things fresh by adding my favorite white crossbody and my Illesteva sunnies courtesy of Ditto.
If you haven’t heard of Ditto, you are missing out!! Probably my new favorite subscription service, Ditto allows you to try out new sunnies for just $19 a month! This is the perfect solution to those who love to change out your sunglass style often or if you are in the market for a new pair but are not sure of the style you want! Try Ditto out with the code ‘TWENTIESGIRLSTYLE’ for your first month free!
In all of the craziness the past month, I completely forgot to post these photos. Imagine my surprise, when scrolling through my computer files I stumble across these. Oops! Better late than never!
You may have seen this dress make an appearance (or two…or three) on my instagram. It’s definitely been one of my favorites this summer because it is white (so bridal…remember this post?), lace and off the shoulder. 3 of my favorite things rolled in to one! Not to mention, it’s under $50!
Loving this trend too?? Check out more white off the shoulder dresses here!
This week’s blogger of the week from last week’s link-up is Sheree of Posh Classy Mom. Obviously I am obsessing over Sheree’s white crochet off the shoulder top. I love that she paired it with a navy hi-low skirt. Does she not look absolutely chic???
Would you believe me if I told you this outfit was 50 UPF (ultraviolet protection factor)? Meaning I can wear this outfit out to the beach and look absolutely chic while protecting my skin from those harmful UV rays. It’s the truth! Despite how adorable this outfit is, it’s made with special ultraviolet protection that helps protect from the sun. Mott 50 is a fairly new company that offers “fashion-forward sun protective clothing in soft, lightweight fabrics.” After wearing this dress for the past few weeks (yes, it has been on major repeat), I have become a huge Mott 50 fan! Not only is this dress comfortable, but it also has a flattering fit and can easily be transitioned into the fall with boots! I love knowing that I can wear this out in the heat of the day and my skin is also being protected from those harsh summertime rays! I’m not saying this is a good alternative to sunscreening, but rather an extra layer of protection!
One of my absolute favorite things about this dress, is it is so on trend with the stripe pattern! I am loving all striped dresses lately, from t-shirt to maxi dresses! Shop some adorable striped options here.
