Let me start this post by saying: “Summer is not my favorite season!” I feel like I’m the only blogger who feels this way, but as a chunky girl, summer fashion is NOT my friend. I would love to wear cropped tops and cute denim shorts, but the way my thighs are set up…no ma’am!
With that said, I spend most of my shopping time hunting for cute summer tops that will work well with jeans or capris (gotta keep my chub tucked in), and still be cool, feminine and chic on days when the temperature climbs well over 90°. For summer, my go to fabrics and patterns include linen, cotton, gingham, stripes, lace, and anything gauzy/flowy. Naturally, when I saw this cute blue and white striped top I fell in love, and knew I had to add it to my wardrobe!
This blue and white striped top is so easy breezy, and can carry you right from your 9-5 to happy hour! I styled my top with white skinny jeans, but it will also pair well with dark or light denim. The style of the top will work with pants, shorts, or even a cute denim mini! I’m 5’4, and the length hits right at the initial curve of my hip, and it skims over my trouble spot (belly) nicely. This one’s a keeper!
