I don’t normally reach for prints (besides a good floral blouse) but there was something about this Tart Collections Azaria bomber that screamed spring and summer to me. It has the softest, silky feel, which makes it perfect for the warmer months and I absolutely adore how it’s reversible! It's essentially two styles in one and is so easy to dress up or down. The fact that it's reversible also makes it a fun and easy way to try a print without the full commitment. 

I sometimes have a hard time layering, especially in the warmer seasons when you don’t want anything heavy, stuffy or overly fussy. A silky-soft bomber adds the perfect amount of interest and is something lightweight that you can grab-and-go to toss on for the office, date night or air conditioning. I instantly knew I wanted to pair this one with crisp white so I reached for an effortless white tank (this Free People one is so good and only $20!) and these Levi’s jeans but this also looks cool and casual with cutoff shorts for the season.

If prints are intimidating to you, trying something versatile in a layer you can pop on and off is perfect. It really adds a fun vibe to your basic jeans and tee look and makes a stylish "looks like I tried" outfit in an instant. The fact that this one is reversible means you can really experiment with subtlety. The backside is the prettiest soft, muted green tone that's incredibly versatile. I can easily see this worn into fall with light sweaters and booties and it does also come in a darker olive/black tone for an edgier vibe.

Do you like to wear prints?

As always, thank you for reading!

Pleated Off the Shoulder and Distressed Levi's

I think it's pretty safe to say I almost never met an off-the-shoulder top I didn't like—or rather love. I actually have to stop myself from buying more in white, it's that serious. So whenever I see one in a style I don't have, it makes me feel less guilty adding another one to my ever-growing collection.

This little pleated off-the-shoulder was just that. I love the light gray, almost purple tone and the fact that it's a subtle print to diversify my wardrobe. It's neutral, yet still a pop. The pleats and swingy style definitely amp up the feminine style, which I'm all about and I love that you can easily take this from day to date night. I can see pairing it with cutoff shorts through summer, too. 

I always love the mix of feminine and edgy, so these distressed Levi's skinny jeans were the perfect pairing and I added my favorite gray Vince slides to keep it effortless and easy for a casual day. You could just as easily pair with strappy heels. You guys, I just have to say I'm all about those Levi's and I truly can't believe I'm just finding that out. So comfy and I'm on the hunt for every color/wash I can get. 

I found the jeans to be true to size and I'm wearing an extra-small in the top. The top does say it's a "crop top" however I didn't find that to be the case. I do tend to prefer shorter tops. I'm 5'6" with longer legs and a shorter torso for reference. 

Thanks for reading!
