Colorblock


This is my go-to outfit combo in the summer: breezy mini-skirt, cropped top, & comfy sandals. I wore the same combo here (minus the hat), and I've worn it countless times off the blog. I found this Zimmermann skirt on The Real Real for less than $40 this winter, and I wish I had this style in every color for the summer. I didn't take a single pair of heels with me to Florida, so I wore this with sandals and my favorite hat for the daytime, but you could just as easily add some heels for a date night or a night out with your girlfriends.


I've always been a huge fan of pink - my childhood bedroom is the same color as this top - and I love that it looks great paired with other saturated colors: emerald green, cobalt blue, even ruby red (as shown by SJP and Emma Stone), in addition to the neutrals: black, gray, white, or navy.


These kinds of tops with the thin material and backless cut make it tricky to find something suitable to wear underneath. I usually wear something like this from Nordstrom, but that version isn't my favorite in terms of comfort, and it's impossible to wear all day in the summer. You can usually get away with it for a night inside the A/C, or for a short amount of time in the heat, but I'm still looking for alternatives. Do you have anything you'd recommend?

Thanks again to my mom for snapping these pics while we were together a couple of weeks ago! I have one more post from Florida, so I'll share that later this week. xx
