When I hear the word "summer," I instantly think of bikinis, beaches, dewy skin and salty hair...Mmm my fave. Not to mention all things nautical... stripes, eyelet patterns, and chunky, glamorous jewelry. Which inspires today's look. Even though it's only April (I promise I'm not trying to get ahead of myself), it's pretty much summer all-year-round here in Florida, and the weather sure feels like it! Whew...soooo hot!
I'll be honest, I have a TON of black in my closet, and I always love sporting neutrals and monochrome looks because, well... it's easy, chic, looks good on everyone, and you can't really go wrong. But let's face it, life is more fun with a little color... wouldn't you agree? Especially in the summer! Berries, blues, and bright colors look beautiful in that warm summer sun.
Today's look is definitely in my top 5 favorite outfits that I've featured on the blog so far. It's chic, classic, but still fun and on-trend. I'm wearing head-to-toe J.Crew. Anyone who knows me knows that J.Crew is one of my all-time favorite shoes to shop, because it's practical yet stylish, and I never leave empty-handed. I like to call it "elevated everyday wear." There is something for everyone, regardless of their style or age. Not to mention their mens clothes are just as fabulous.
FUN FACT:I love love love menswear, and as an aspiring designer, it is one of my goals to create a men's line. Hence why some of my everyday looks are inspired by menswear, especially when I wear jackets and oversized boyfriend blazers... #girlbossvibes

If these culotte pants (one of my fave styles) and chunky link bracelet don't scream summer, I don't know what does. I'm #obsessedwith this bag with the mix of multi-color leather (the other side of the bag is pastel pink!) and the red suede in the front. Color blocking was a huge trend a couple years ago, but on a bag? That definitely takes the cake.
The minute I saw this one-shoulder top, I melted a little inside. There's something so elegant and feminine about this style. It reminds me of Old Hollywood Glamour... #swoon. The eyelet detail also adds a nice touch. Oh, and let's not forget the ruffles... it's simply a very necessary bonus. It's also available in red and black, which I linked below!
SO obsessed with these gorgeous tassel earrings with the flowers. No one does colorful chunky jewelry like J.Crew. They have the most innovative, unique pieces.
Okay, so how perfectly does my bagmatch my multi-color suede heels?! The colors work so well together, because they are in the same color family (red, pink and salmon / purple, blue, gray and taupe.)
FUN FACT:When putting an outfit together, I start with one piece then build from there. Sometimes it's a top, dress or pair of pants, but today it was these pair of heels. I was looking for the perfect outfit to go with these suede heels by Daryn Moore, but wasn't feeling anything in my closet, so I took a quick trip to the mall aaaand that's how today's look is head-to-toe J.Crew!
