Real time: While I'm dreaming of the Fall (weeks of 106F will do that to a girl), I do love my summer looks. They are a great way to take basics and mix them together to create something completely unique.
One of my favorite summer shoes have been these lace-up gladiators from Madewell (I wore them here, here and here, among other places!). For this look, I grabbed a few of my other favorite pieces: these cut-offs from Express, my bralette from Victoria's Secret (talked about why they're amazing here) and my new favorite tank top: This twist-tie back from Trouve.
I love the hint of detailing that the open back provides for the bralette. Subtle sexiness. I also really enjoy wearing these lace-ups wrapped around my ankles. They can be tied so many different ways and I find the simple ankle wrap to be casual and fun.
Sizing notes: I'm a 0 in the shorts which gives a looser fit. The top is xs, and fits loosely without being baggy. Bralette is xs (I'm a 30A), and shoes run TTS.
