Once again, I have allowed myself to succumb to the ever-changing weather that has been plaguing us all these last few months. Now that the summer heat is acting with full force, I can’t help but be swept up in the hype of outdoor brunches, rooftop bar season and Summer Fridays. Of course, none of this can excuse my motivation being all over the map. Fresh from my return from vacation in Florida, I am ready to start anew and get back on the grind.
Since I’ve been putting off this post longer than this year’s spring, it’s time to get to it! This look is definitely more relaxed than usual, and I’m perfectly okay with it. In fact, it showcases how you can dress something both up and down within the same ensemble. Specifically, I’m talking about this cropped sweatshirt from Sans Souci Stores.
At first, I was skeptical of my ability to take a sweatshirt and create a cute, laid-back, street style look that didn’t involve yoga pants or white sneakers. Because this sweatshirt is cropped and not too bulky, I thought a simple button-front skirt would do the trick on the “cute” front. As for the “chill but still fun” side of things, I went for my silver metallic creepers as my shoe of choice. Their shine is more than enough to draw you in, I’d say!
How do you all like to dress up your basics? Shoot me a response in the comments below!
A special thank you to Sans Souci Stores for gifting me with this sweatshirt. As always, all opinions are my own.
