RELAXED SUMMER STYLE FOR THE WEEKEND
Do you ever have those days, or even those weeks, where you are so busy that you can’t keep track of the time? That has been me for the past few weeks, but I think I see a clearing in the clouds, and I might even see rays of sunshine starting to peak through.
I’m a little crazy right now, and I’m thankful that my daughter introduced me to Google Calendar so that I can keep track of everything. My Energizer Bunny Friend is going through the same scenario right now, and she is so busy that she forgot her wedding anniversary. Funnily enough, her husband remembered and even sent her flowers. She was so sad that she had forgotten such an important date, but he was delighted that he remembered and she had forgotten. He said that was the best anniversary present she could have ever given him. Lol! Last night, she and I went to a Charcuterie Board event, and tonight we are going to an Artist and Chef experience. See, we can make time for things we want to do. Lol!
I wanted to showcase a relaxed top that can also be worn for a dressy event. This Lantern Sleeve Off Shoulder Top is flowy and relaxed and is a beautiful statement top. It looks great with jeans, but if you pair it with a pair of dress pants and heels, you could wear this to any fancy event. I’m not sure how this top would look not worn off the shoulder; the elastic is pretty prominent, but you could also try that if you aren’t comfortable with wearing the off-shoulder look. I’m wearing a medium, and the top fits great. BTW, the top comes in a wide array of colors and prints and is under $25, so check it out to see if you like any of them.
Accessories also make a difference when looking casual, semi-casual, and dressy. I chose semi-casual jewelry even though I’m wearing distressed jeans. I’m wearing a pair of Earrings with a Mother of Pearl Link. If you want, you can remove the link and wear the huggies alone. I link more oversized earrings, so I would probably never wear them like that. I’m a huge fan of multi-strand necklaces, and I wish this one was still in stock. I’m not surprised that it sold out so quickly; it is gorgeous and perfect for summer. I’ll put a widget below that shows some of the other multi-strand necklaces that make a big statement.
My jeans are too big for me because I messed up when I placed the order. I knew they were girlfriend jeans and would be loose, but I didn’t notice that I ordered the curvy version. I sent these back and re-ordered the jeans in the regular version, and they just came in the mail. They fit much better; they’re relaxed but not baggy like these. I’m wearing a size 29, and that’s the size I ordered for the other pair.
I’m wearing a Black Leather Belt that I purchased last year from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I love this belt style since the holes extend all around, and you can decide how tight or loose you want the belt to be. I’m wearing an M/L, and I also ordered the brown version, which is available this year. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends on Sunday, and I wanted to give you a heads up about that. I’m placing a few more orders because I don’t own enough clothing. Lol!!!
