Did you know that yesterday was Best Friends Day? Well, if you didn’t know that, you were in good company. I didn’t know it either until yesterday morning, and I started scrambling for ideas to celebrate the day. I ended up calling my blogging BESTIE, Jennifer from A Well Styled Life, to go live with me in Instagram Stories.
We had a blast talking about how we first started talking to each other and about the first time that we met in person. We’ve only met each other once, but we hope to change that soon. Now, it seems like we talk at least daily and bounce ideas off of each other all of the time.
Then, I called my sister, who is my LIFETIME Best Friend. It is a shame if you missed that IG lives because she dished a lot of dirt on me from my childhood. Lol! I called her a pesky little sister, and we laughed the entire time. It was entertaining for those who happened to be online at the time. I’m not sure what TODAY is, but it can’t possibly be as much fun as yesterday was.
One thing is for sure, today’s outfit is colorful and super cute! I have been really loving this open weave sweater trend that I’ve seen lately. I wore a neutral-colored one (here) a couple of weeks ago, and it ended up being a “best seller” for that week.
The open weave sweaters are light and airy, but they still provide a small amount of coverage. If you don’t like to show your upper arms but want something cool to wear in the summer, this might be a good option for you. I love the longer tunic length of the sweater, and I think it is a great length for wearing loose or doing a small tuck as I have done here.
You can layer this sweater with a camisole or tank and pair it with jeans, pants, shorts, or a skirt. I ended up ordering a size 1, and I love the fit of the sweater. BTW, the sweater comes in three other colors, and I also ordered the white one since it would look great with everything.
I know that you are getting tired of seeing me wear these no-stain white girlfriend crops. Lol! I really love the So-Slimming line from Chicos; they help tuck me in where I need tucking. Also, the “no-stain” feature is a big plus for this girl who likes to eat on the run. Now…if Chico’s would only make these in men’s shirts, I would be set. I don’t think that Joe ever eats that he doesn’t drop things on his shirt. Hahaha!
I am wearing a size 1 in these crops, and I love how they fit. They are slightly loose, but not as loose as if I were wearing boyfriend jeans. Girlfriend jeans are slightly slimmer fitting.
Did you see this coming??? I decided to give you another option for wearing the sweater. These relaxed Bermuda-length jeans are FABULOUS! I have them cuffed one roll, but you could roll them up one more if you wanted to wear them shorter. I am wearing a size 1 in the shorts, and they fit great.
I wanted to include this photo so that you would see the length of the sweater. This length will give you peace of mind when you have people walking behind you. Lol!
The abstract silk scarf that I have in my hair is beautiful. It has such vibrant colors in it, and it brings an outfit to life. In the summer, I don’t like wearing a scarf around my neck because of the heat, so I will look for other ways to wear them. I sometimes wear them on my handbag, as a belt, or in my hair.
Lastly, I added a white tank under my sweater and Keds platform sneakers. The tank is a size 2 because I don’t want it to fit me so tight. I love the leather and how crisp and white they look. My other favorite pair is my Sperry Crest Vibe sneakers, but they are not leather, and they get dirtier than the Keds. I am wearing my usual size 9 in these, and I think that they run TTS.
Did you notice that I added a new feature to the blog? Go to the homepage, and scroll down the page. You will see last week’s BEST SELLERS, the SUMMER MAKEUP PRODUCTS that I am using, and some AMAZON FINDS for the summer sun. I plan on changing these weekly, so be sure to check back often for updated items.
