Hi fabulous friends! I am so happy that spring is in the air and that summer is fast approaching! Warm weather on-the-reg is headed our way (at least for those of us in Texas!) You know what that means don’t you? People are beginning to show some skin and, as always, the midriff is in! You guys know that I am a huge fan of crop tops – they are too cute not to love. You can pair a crop top with pretty much anything. However, sometimes a shrunken shirt just will not do. In instances like this, go with the crop top’s sophisticated sister: the classy cutout.
More refined than your typical peek-a-boo, a classy cutout shows just a hint of midriff. It is daring yet demure, classy with a side of sassy. The perfect balance. The sky-high slit and the vibrant shoes are the style statements of this ensemble so there isn’t a need for much adornment on top. No statement necklace this time, sistas! Simple studs will do. Denim outerwear transitions seamlessly from season to season. I liken a jean jacket to a nude pump or a little black dress – get one and you will wear it over and over and over … and over again. Perhaps this is because it literally (and I mean literally) goes with everything under the sun. I vote that every woman should add a little white dress to their closet. Why does the little black dress get to have all the fun? This may sound silly, but I felt very sleek in this LWD (short for little white dress, of course!) Flouncy, boho-chic dresses definitely scream spring, but sometimes you want to feel sharp and put together, am I right?! This white number is just the thing. Isn’t this dainty jeweled bag the best?! I will be wearing it on repeat this spring as a cross body, a shoulder bag, and even a clutch. Versatility at its finest! It is super affordable too 🙂 Pairing a white dress with a white bag keeps this look modern and clean while providing a perfect backdrop for some look-at-me shoes! I highly recommend you add a vibrant patterned pump to your collection this spring. It is the easiest way to transform a simple dress into a style statement.
