First thought that comes to mind when you see this top?

Pretty cute? Not my style? OMG love the detailing! Those sleeves, I die! Those sleeves, I can’t.  I would drag those straight through my guac at taco Tuesday.  Whatever you’re thinking that this moment, did it ever cross your mind that this super fun summery top wasn’t in fact a top at all???  This top is actually a beach coverup that I tucked into my shorts! I recently bought the coverup for obvious ascetic reasons but when I saw it hanging in my closet I really wished I owned a top that has all of these amazing details, hence how the idea came.  Sure it’s totally sheer which is why I wore a lace bandeau underneath.  I love being able to wear a piece multiple ways and this is totally a win win, cute cover up for beach days and a fun casual outfit for running around town.

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! My was super low key (totally needed).  Outside of running my usual weekend errands to the grocery store and Target, I did make a quick beach trip on Sunday, I’m so grateful to live so close.  Other than that I stayed semi-shut in at home.  I don’t care, call me a home body, I love it! I like to be social but I’d much rather entertain people at my house than go to a bar.  Ever since moving in with Brian I’ve developed this love affair with cooking which I think is another reason Brian & I have people over.  Anyways, I totally feel like I’m about to go on a ramble all the things I’ve been cooking lately so I’ll just cut it off now before I make myself hungry and bore y’all to tears.

Here’s to a new week! Make it great and remember, you’re amazing & beautiful!!

      Thank you!! It was definitely a good risk to take, I didn’t think it would look as cute as it turned out! ha. I hope they come back in stock in your size because these shoes are so comfy! xo

    I love the embroidery AND also the lace up details. You look so incredibly tan…are you sunbathing already? Lucky if you are, but make sure to use SPF 😉 I love blue on you, it looks so good with a nice tan! x Adaleta Avdic

      Thanks girl! And yes ma’am, I literally live maybe 10 minutes from the beach so I’ve been soaking up some rays for like 2 months now. And of course I’ve been lathering up in SPF, aint nobody got time for a sunburn!
