For a casual dinner date, I wanted to throw together a cute summer outfit, but without being too casual or too tropical. This bow tie tank from J.Crew was darling, and I thought it would be perfect with white jeans. The white straps contrast with the navy and the peplum is very flattering. I grabbed a basic pearl necklace and a simple bracelet so as not to deter from the bows and the cute shoes.
A high, curly pony tail looks cute and sophisticated, and definitely helps to keep you cooler. I always go back and forth as to whether or not I should cut my hair shorter in the summer to stay cooler, or to keep it long for beachy waves and cute braids. Always wrap a strand of hair around to hide the ponytail holder. It makes a casual hairstyle much more polished.
A KJP Anchor bracelet never goes amiss.
To show off the shoes and to add a little bit of dimension, I did a casual cuff on the jeans. It helps to showcase these stripey straps and let the shoes pop a little more. I love how summer ready these heels are, and they were very affordable on J.Crew Factory!!
