Summer Stripes



This weekend we spent a good amount of time exploring the town we'll be moving to in just a few short weeks.  Even though it's only 20 minutes away from our current house, it feels like a completely different community with so much more to do & see.  It's going to be a hectic & stressful month while we work on getting settled into a new space, but I'm looking forward to late afternoon strolls along the canal, outdoor dining & living closer to our friends ~ I have a feeling it's going to be a great summer!





What I'm wearing:
c/o Tailor & Stylist top (here), ASOS shorts (here), Report sandals (on sale here or here), c/o Just Fab bag (here), ALDO fedora (here), Forever 21 ring (here), c/o T+J Designs cuff (similar), Nails: OPI A Roll in The Hague, Lips: L'Oreal Colour Riche Volcanic

I love the black and white look on you. The back is amazing.
That is great news about moving and hat it's in the summer so that you can settle in before the kids start school. Congrats again and good luck!

Have a wonderful day!

Such a fun top! Love the shorts too. I remember packing up the house when I was pregnant with my 2nd son and moving in the summer. Ugh. Never again! Especially while pregnant!

Katharine said...

Wow. That shirt is AWESOME. Headed over to look at it now! I always get so sad when I see cute open back tops because I feel I can never wear them. (I MUST wear a bra for my large breasts and have never been comfortable with an exposed bra.) And ....wearing a tank top underneath it kinda defeats the point of having an open back in the first place! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the extra strip of fabric built in across the back! If you ever see tops like these PLEASE feature them somehow! XOXO, KATE

Alyson said...

LOVE the suprisingly sexy/probably cooler style of this top during insane heat. It's awesome. Want to send it to Florida for a visit?? :)

And, obsessed with your shorts. Perfect fit, too, for stripes which is huge. I'm checking those out too.

selectionsbysisters said...

Love the shirt! Does it fit true to size? Definitely want to order today :)

Kimberly said...

@selectionbysisters,

Yes - I would say it runs true to size. I ordered a small and it fits perfect/maybe even a little loose. Hope that helps! :)

Hi Marina,

Yes, I am wearing a backless bra with this top - I found mine at Target, but I'm sure they sell them elsewhere too. Here's the link:

I had to smile to myself when I saw the name of your lip color. Volcanic was my mother's favorite lip color. Going through her things recently, I found five tubes of it in her vanity drawer. She was 85 and could sport lip color like nobodies business! Thank you for the smile.

You look gorgeous! Love the pop of red!
