Hello Summer! Black Tank and Shorts That Up Your Style


Happy first day of summer! This fun straw bag says HELLO to my favorite season of the year!

Today’s outfit features a Vince Camuto swing top from Dillards and Old Navy drawstring shorts.

I cannot remember where the bag came from and I cannot find it online.  Fun graphic styles have been trending for years and probably are not going to end anytime soon.  To up your style, consider adding items with words or images to your outfits!

Here are a few cuties from Amazon.


Styling my Roan sandals again.  Love the slip on trend that’s so popular now.

I love large earrings on other people but somehow not on me!  This is about as large as I go, but I do like this drop style with  crackle texture.

Sunglasses are Costas.

Casual Ways to Style Crop Pants

When we find a piece we love, we tend to wear it over and over. And why not? That’s what fashion is, wearing what we love and what makes us feel good!

These a.n.a. jeans will definitely be my go-to pants for the summer.  I love shorts but I’m also cold-natured and so many times I need sleeves or pants…or both!

These are not as roomy as the ones I wore in a recent post.  I can wear a top with more material with this style because they are fitted at the waist and hips.

I wear black every season,  I think we all do!  The top is Roz & Ali, shoes are Steve Madden and purse is Michael Kors.


I had to include this pic because it’s so silly! I was trying to capture a close-up of the top and misjudged the timer. I just posed quickly and ended up looking like an awkward cheerleader.  Maybe I’m reverting back to my high school days…rah!

Do you have a go-to outfit for summer?  Do you change up your look often?

Let me know what you think about the wide legs.

Summer Orange and Wide Leg Crop Pants


Nothing says summer any better than a bright color!  This outfit arrived yesterday and it is now my favorite!  I’m never sure about orange because my skin has yellow undertones and certain shades don’t always work on me. I thought I would give it a try it since I have a decent tan from my recent vacation (suncreeen was used liberally).

The shirt is a.n.a. from JCP and it is extremely lightweight.  I was afraid the material would be thick and stiff but nope! It’s available in three colors!

The jeans are Project Runway from JCP and they fit perfectly.  Don’t mean to brag but I hit it out of the ball park with these. I went with a size 6T because I wanted them a little longer (I am 5’6″).  Regular crops make my legs look shorter, especially if I’m wearing flats. They are fitted through the waist and hips.  The flare has the darker relaxed hem that is so trendy now. This pair is 40% right now!

My block heels are from a few seasons ago but I love them so much I have them in black also.  They are New Direction from Belk.

I’ve had the necklace for quite awhile so I don’t remember where it was purchased. I like the way the colors enhance the shirt rather than compete with it.

Again with the knotted waistline! I really am drawn to this look.  It gives the illusion of a smaller waist and I’m always up for that!

I realize it seems as though JCP is sponsoring these posts but they are not.  I truly love their clothes and appreciate their affordable prices.

Why spend a small fortune on trends that will only be in style a season or two?  I would rather save my money for classic items that can be enjoyed for years!
