I don't have any fun beach vacations planned for this summer, which is perhaps why I've been digging on the beachy/Hawaiian look lately. Totally jealous of any of you who are going someplace tropical soon.

Nabbed these bangles during the Topshop sale. I'm always surprised by what great jewelry they have.

great outfit! i absolutely love the colors

FashionAddict said...

Super cute, I heart those bangels.
I hear it's been quite tropical in your parts lately, so just find a pool, make a daquiri, and hire a cabana boy, right? :)

Lizzy Webb said...

super presh.
the Hawaiian tropical look is definitely "in"
and your outfit is a GREAT example!

Becca said...

I love the little bit of tummy peeking out, i think it gives this outfit so much more appeal! I love that you've brought the tropics to DC, now you just need a pina colada and some reggae music! Enjoy!

Hannah said...

I swear I always end up spending more at Topshop when they're having sales than I do when everything is full priced.... Don't they have the most amazing crop tops?

Fashion Cents said...

that big chunky bracelet is great!

I love the proportions in this outfit. The crop top looks great with your skirt

Anna G said...

I love the way you put the crop top with the full skirt. It's so sad that summer is half way over. I wish I could get back to the beach.

Helen said...

Love this one! You look like such a hippie child turned sophisticate!

Audrey Allure said...

I love this combination of the skirt & the printed top - beautiful!

gorgeousclara said...

love the colours on that outfit

Ketura said...

I love the styling, and I especially love idea of bringing something special (like a beach vacation) into your regular life when that can make you happy. That could mean putting on an evening gown for dinner at home with a date if that sounds fun to you, or bringing out accessories of colors that remind you of happy times.

Tasha said...

I'm loving that top! Fun tropical colors and it looks great paired with that bright colored skirt!

Erika said...

You are like the queen of styling - I would never have pictured pairing a cropped top with anything other than skinny jeans or a more fitted bottom; but the way it works with the flowy skirt is gorg. Love this look!! :)

I'm very inspired by your crop top and high-waisted skirt. It's a great way to wear one without showing too much skin (or in my case, doughy-ness)!

Damsels said...

Grace said...

Fun. You deserve a tropical vacation, take me!

Love Grace.
