Get your layer on!







July 1st! I can’t believe how fast this summer is going by. This is my second look with this maxi skirt, the first one is here. I really love how easy this skirt is to wear. A maxi always looks styled, even if you just pair it with a cute tank top or button up chambray (totally “in” right now over dresses and skirts!!). The vest that I suggested below from Nordstrom is adorable (I actually like it better than mine), perfect for adding a little something edgy to your look. Lighter pieces for layering are always popular, but are especially good for the summertime to add some style to your look. With a vest like that, all you have to add is a plain tank underneath, skinny jeans, heels and voila – you have an easy, put together, stylish look! Get on your layers ladies!!

My Hips don’t lie








I have tried on a lot of Peplum-style tops because I love the look of them, but none of them ever seemed to be very flattering on me so when I found this one I was pumped! I got this one on my birthday from TJMaxx, one of my top favorite places to shop! The style is all over the place this summer, they are everywhere you look and shop. They are very cute, but can also be very tricky. The style is very short compared to some of the longer-bodied styles that have been on trend as of lately, and the shape of it really gives you an exaggerated hourglass figure if you are up for it. It does draw attention your waist and hips, so if you have wider hips already, you may want to stay away from adding additional fabric and attention to them. Because it comes in so tightly at the waist, that should give you a little more definition there to add a little more woman to your shape. I have a few cute options listed below of styles I liked, but do keep in mind, these tops are not for everyone, I had a hard time finding one that worked with my body-type.

Happy hunting!
