I have been living for all the summer casual finds lately from lounge sets to cutoffs and band tees. I blame pandemics for days I’m uninspired to play “dress up” with nowhere to go.
With that being said, things are slowly starting to open up around here with plenty of venues catering to outdoor eats and retail doing curbside pickup. I’ve already enjoyed some of my local favorites dining outside in makeshift setups, which despite pandemics, is a nice change from places I’ve only been used to dining in because they lacked the facilities for proper outdoor dining… something I always look forward to during summer anyway!
So on a perfect sunny day recently, I decided to wear pieces from a recent Express haul, throw on some makeup and a set of lashes and enjoy some lunch outside. I had just freshly self tanned the night before so I knew I wanted to wear this white asymmetrical wrap front cami. It’s totally an elevated basic that easily dressed up a simple pair of cropped jeans. Paired the look with a nude pair of strappy sandals and this embellished puka shell coin clutch that provided the perfect summer accent to my outfit.
It felt so good to finally get out (other than for necessary essentials) after these last few months that I took advantage of another summer perfect day for some happy hour eats at one of my favorite eateries just a block away. The food did not disappoint, but neither did this off the shoulder smock sleeve top. Was honestly the best thing I could’ve worn because I think I ate my weight in slow cooked pulled pork tacos that afternoon! Despite the longer sleeves, this top is light, breathable and breezy, and the flowy silhouette concealed and food baby evidence of indulging a little too much, lol.
These were just a few of all the awesome finds I picked up from Express. All other pieces featured are linked below…get them while their still available!
