Late Summer Florals.

Top: {Old, Similar here} // Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters  // Shoes: The Walking Company // Sunglasses: H&M // Purse: TJ Maxx {Similar here}  // Necklace: Versona Accessories {Similar here} // Bracelets: Alex & Ani, c/o Gabe's, Charming Charlie, {Old} // Ring: {Old} // Lips: Softlips cube in Pomegranate Blueberry 

     Floral is definitely a big part of my signature style. I'm pretty much obsessed with flowers, so I love wearing floral prints at all times of the year! The warmer months are definitely my favorite time to break out the florals though. With the late summer heat starting to hit New England, this light-weight floral tank made for a perfect casual Friday afternoon outfit for running errands and visiting with my grandma! 

     I have paired these "boyfriend" jeans with my favorite chunky brown heels before! (See this post.) Fun fact about these jeans that I love so much: they aren't actually boyfriend jeans! My secret to getting this perfect relaxed yet still figure enhancing fit is to actually buy a pair of American Eagle Outfitters skinny jeans, but to buy them a size or two larger than my normal size!! They will be the perfect combination of skinny yet baggy, and that's exactly how I like my boyfriend style jeans to look. As long as I wear a belt they stay on perfectly!
