the style hive: crop top to bottom

crop top to bottom

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Hat: Yellow 108 (thanks Dad!) / Top: Topshop / Skirt: American Eagle, old (similar, similar)
Sandals: Topshop (in love) / Bag: Talbot's / Cuff: similar / Sunglasses: Karen Walker

SUMMER. If a crop top (albeit with long sleeves), sunglasses, and hat don't mean it's summer, then I'm at a loss. Plus lots of nice greenery and good views don't hurt either. But how are you all, friends? I am all over the place. I'm out of school, I'm back home, I'm off to Georgia, I'm relaxing, I'm working...Blergh. I need a nap. But enough complaining, I should be reveling in the good weather (like I am in these photos) and be thankful that I have something to work for the next couple years. Let the adventure begin, right?

And let's talk for a hot sec about these shoes. Shoes and coats might be my weaknesses when it comes to clothing. Maybe it's because they're the most practical pieces of an ensemble (though I guess pants are practical if you don't want to be caught...not wearing pants...) but I can never convince myself that I have enough. So: new shoes. For summer. Totally reasonable, right? Especially since I'm doing my annual summer closet purge and have I gotten rid of GARBAGE BAGS full of clothes. Only makes sense to fill in the gaps. Perfectly fitting, easy to walk in, go with everything, Topshop sandals-sized gaps. Yes.

OH and yes those are Karen Walkers on my face (that sounds weird). They were a major graduation present courtesy of my parents and I am so obsessed. I mean, who hasn't been? Every "it" fashion blogger and their moms seem to have Karen Walker shades. Never thought I'd get myself in the ranks (somewhat) and I admit I feel a bit like a poser. BUT I DON'T CARE THEY'RE PRETTY AND PRESCRIPTION AND I LOVE THEM!!! Not that you would be able to tell in these photos, with them covering half my face, ooh mystery ooh what is she thinking under there? Right? Right??

  1. I love this look. I actually adore the details on the skirt.
    It's such a lovely hat.
    I really want a hat like yours too.
    But I firstly have to find a summer job and save money to get one I have an eye on in a vintage store.
