J.Crew Truths & a Casual Summer Outfit

Hello there & happy hump day to you! Today is actually extra exciting because not only does my weekend start early but so does my boyfriend's. Early tomorrow morning and, I mean before 7am early, we will be heading to Ogunquit, Maine with my extended family. This annual trip is one of the highlights of my summer. Legend has it, that the Abenaki tribe named this quaint town Ogunquit, which translated means 'beautiful place by the sea 'be sure to stay tuned for some photos on Instagram and future blog posts! 

I love this look beacause as a fashion blogger one can feel pressure to have new outfits 24/7, which as amazing as that would be, I can not afford that. I mean who can really?!! Anyway.... #jcrewtruths once taught me "a repeat outfit is really just a well earned encore". So in honor of this style mantra I live by I wanted to share with you one of my favorite looks. This outfit combines some of my most frequently worn items. 

For starters, I absolutely love this station top from J.Crew factory it instantly makes shorts feel more glam. Speaking of shorts, I seriously live in them right now. I especially love a good printed pair since they give me SO many options to match it with, hence more wears/repeats! Lastly, I pair my classic summer uniform with my Monogram date necklace and initial necklace, Tory Burch Sandals and Tory Bag, these are definitely on repeat and well deserved. 

Alright before I go, in order of National Book day, which I guess was yesterday (ah, I'm late, but I'm only human girl!) You can bet I have my suggested read, Truly Madly Guilty, for the beach. Have you ordered your copy yet? Can't wait to chat about it with you! 

As always thanks SO much for stopping in & for all your support! I've recently just hit over 3k on Instagram and I am so thankful and blessed that y'all have been so supportive in helping me grow my blog. Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo, Lo
