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.

  24. 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? :)

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

    ReplyDelete
  26. 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!

  27. 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?

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

  44. 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.

  46. 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!! :)
