Hey Curvy Crew,
Can you believe we only a couple of weeks away from the official start of summer? I feel like I just celebrated New Years with you. Well, let me say that summer is my Favorite time year! Why do you ask? Because it’s my BIRTHDAY!!! and this year, I’m turning 40…wow! Time really flies.
Summer is just the perfect time of year for this look that I’m wearing. Let’s start with this simply cute top from Lane Bryant. The cold shoulder and the ruffles are currently a big fashion trend for spring and summer. I love the mix of fabrics in this top. The body of the shirt feels just like your favorite tee while the ruffle has a slightly more sturdy fabric to help keep the shape. Bonus: This top is currently on sale for $23.97!
I found this Crochet Shorts at Torrid and it was love at first sight. To be honest, these are slightly out of my comfort zone, but the pattern, color, and fabric sold me. When I tried them on in the dressing room, I knew I had to have them. They scream “flirty summer fun” and the best part is these can be dressed up with a pair of wedges and a cute top or add some converse and your favorite graphic tee to give it some edge. I’m truly loving these and you’ll be seeing these throughout the summer.
When it’s hot out, I like to keep my accessories to a minimum, so with this look, I added some double stud earrings and an ear cuff, which highlighted my undercut very well. I wore a small cross body purse, a pair of nude open sandals and to finish the look a pair of sunnies that matched the shorts perfectly. I just love summer!
