The Striped Transition Sweater You Need for Fall

Labor Day is a week away, which means fall’s arrival is on the way! I absolutely love summer and I’m sad to see it go. However, there are some key pieces I love to rely on to transition into fall. This striped transition sweater is the perfect way to ease into fall. The color block stripes are a fun trend from summer. Plus, you can tuck this sweater into shorts for cooler summer nights. I can easily see myself throwing this over a swimsuit after watching a sunset at the beach. Or you can wear it when you’re in chilly restaurants or grocery stores when you’re running errands. I’m wearing a size US 2, which fits like a size 0-2. This sweater is meant to fit a little boxy and oversized. It’s also perfect for layering as I like to wear an extra cashmere layer underneath to stay extra warm when it’s cold.

Pastel Rainbow :: Striped Summer Dress

Happy Monday Y’all! I’m a big fan of stripes, especially when they are in a colorful rainbow array. This pastel striped summer dress is an easy addition to any wardrobe. I love how you can throw it on and go. Plus, it’ll work whether it’s a more casual occasion or something slightly fancier. This dress is a lightweight fabric so it’s going to keep you cool when it gets hot out. Also, I love how it’s lined. Wrap silhouettes are one of my favorite types of dresses to wear because of how flattering they are. This striped summer dress has a fun and flirty ruffle hem, which I adore. It’s a true wrap silhouette, so you can make the v-neck lower or higher depending on what you prefer, which is nice. I’m wearing size XXS and it fits true to size.

Why You Need a Pair of Wide-Leg Pants

You may have seen plenty of wide-leg pants popping up lately, especially on me! Wide-leg pants are very nostalgic for me. They give me the same vibes as the pants I would wear with an Ao Dai, which is a traditional Vietnamese long dress. I’m partnering with River Island on today’s post to share why you need a pair of wide-leg pants, especially for summer! Wide-leg pants are all the rage right now and these white ones are my current obsession. Wide-leg pants are extremely flattering on everyone and they really elongate you! Plus, they’re so comfortable to wear, especially in the heat because they aren’t tight or restrictive. They really let your skin breathe and keep you cool. This particular pair of wide-leg pants comes in 11 colors, including classics such as black but also fun colors such as lavender, pink and more!

The Perfect Crop Top for Summer :: Mint Tie Strap Top

Happy Monday y’all! We got some gorgeous weather in Coastal Virginia this weekend. Looking forward to summer, I have a feeling this is going to be one of my summer uniforms. This mint tie strap top is the perfect crop top for summer. The length isn’t too short or too long, which is great for petite ladies. The tie straps with bows add a nice flirty and feminine touch, too. Also, I love how the ruffle top is layered, which is incredibly flattering for the bust area. This top also comes in black, too! Quality wise, the fabric is a dream to steam, ha! Plus, it is a nice weight and isn’t sheer or flimsy. One of the reasons it’s the perfect crop top for summer is it’s lined but doesn’t feel heavy. The tie straps allow you to really make this top fit perfectly for you, too.

When Life Gives You Lemons :: Lemon Print Jumpsuit

Happy FriYay, y’all! Sooo, Why did the lemon fail her driving test? It kept peeling out! Sorry, couldn’t help myself. I feel like I have to tell a bad lemon joke anytime I wear anything lemon print. However, how darling is this strapless lemon print jumpsuit?! It is the perfect piece to bring the sunshine wherever you’re going. I typically prefer items that skim the body more, but I’m loving the wide leg trend right now. Plus, it also helps when the weather gets hot. This fresh-squeezed number has built-in pads, so you can totally nix your bra! I love the sweetheart neckline, which gives this lemon print jumpsuit such a summery feel. One aspect I love is how effortless this jumpsuit is. Throw it on and head out the door and you are sure to make everyone smile wherever you go!
