Gingham bow tie top + ballerina leggings

I got this gingham top and ballerina tie leggings courtesy of Yoins. Both items are so super cute! The gingham plus the cold shoulder tie sleeves makes the top really trendy. And, what’s not to love on the ballerina tie leggings? Amirite? I got so many compliments the day I wore those to physical therapy. (Yeah, still going due to the whip lash from the car accident last month. Wah. Wah. Wah…) Although one lady did say it looked like the muscle tape they have. So if you really want to create them yourself on a budget, you now know how. Just get muscle tape and criss cross it around your legs. Haha. Just kidding. Really. Don’t do that.

If you like the exact same ones I got, just hover your mouse (or finger, if you’re on your phone) over the words ‘top’ and ‘leggings’ in the above paragraph. Similar items are posted in the links at the bottom of the post as well.

Happy fall y’all!

Palm leaf tank top

I’ve been waiting for this palm leaf tank top to arrive from Yoins for a couple of weeks now, and finally, when I got busy doing extras work and stand-in work for a couple of days with no time to check the mail, that’s when it arrived. I love this palm leaf print trend that’s been so in this year! The shades of green, pink, and ivory are such a nice color combo. My only problem with this tank top was that the straps were way too long. I had to pin them up a bit so it would hang just right on my petite frame. Later on, when I have time, I’ll sew the straps I pinned into place so I don’t have to keep pinning it every time I wear it.

I paired this with my white eyelet lace shorts, white flower sandals, my ‘Wish you were here’ straw hat’, rose gold reflective sunglasses, rose gold purse plus my palm tree necklace and earrings for a nice summer look. Too bad summer is almost over. I’ll have to layer the top with jeans and a jacket as summer turns into fall so I can still wear it.

Which summer trend did you like best this year?
