The Perfect Summer Top to Keep Cool

Cutest summer top award goes to the J.Crew Factory pom pom top. It gives me all the summer feels. Two weeks ago, the worst heat wave hit in July and it was almost unbearable. Pretty sure all of the US felt that! I was so so happy I had this lightweight cotton top to keep me somewhat cool and sane!

Whenever my mom and I go to Vero for the day, I always make sure we stop in J.Crew Factory. There’s just something about shopping in store and touching the clothes vs. buying online. When we went, I ended up buying this top there and I love it so much, I just ordered it online in white for under $15!!!

The neckline is so pretty and what girl can stay away from a dainty pom pom detail?! Keep in mind J.Crew Factory runs big and I am wearing a 0. My usual top size is a Small or 4. The top also comes in a pretty periwinkle blue. If you are looking for a versatile summer top, I’d hop on it because it’s final sale and some of the colors have limited sizes.

Is this house not the cutest?! It’s a bed and breakfast in my towns historic district! I love how my top matches with the super subtle yellow trim!

I am obsessed with tucking tops into skirts. It gives you a cute waistline and makes a simple top look extra classy. Also, it is a cute top to front tuck into high waisted denim shorts! Simple and no fuss outfits are always my favorite. My accessories are pretty minimal since I wanted the top to do all the talking. White statement earrings would be my #1 capsule wardrobe accessory if I used those. ? I wear white all the time and they match with everything.

Another way to tie a simple matching accessory into an outfit is to tie a scarf onto a purse or in my case my trusty basket bag. I truly wish Talbots made these same sandals this summer because if you look close enough, they have teeny tiny yellow pom poms details. Love when I didn’t even try to be matchy match and I was! Jack Rodgers makes a cute pair that has a similar shape in tons of colors! For those on a budget, Old Navy always has natural colors sandals!

How has your week been!? Mine felt like a total blur and I woke up today completely refreshed and ready to tackle this fun Friday. To end the week right, my co-workers and I trekked to the mall in our scrubs after a super long day. Working in medical is no joke! We indulged with gelato and a macaron from Le Macaron before dinner. Usually I like to savor my sweets until after dinner but it’s that good. I couldn’t resist. I would totally recommend giving the almande macaron flavor a try!

This morning I had a teaching certification test to take and I didn’t pass it. I spent all week after work preparing, studying and praying I would ace it. Keep in mind it’s the 4th time I took it and without going into to much detail, I already told myself I wont retake it again. It has to do with timelines and certificates expiring, not so much that I gave up, because that I did not. I think this might finally be the que to head in a new direction. Will keep you updated on this more once I figure out the next steps.

Hope you all have a sunny and fun weekend!

Lots of Sunshine,
