Happy Tuesday friends & happy short week! (at least for me) I’m getting extra excited for this upcoming weekend since we have Monday off and Wes and I are taking a mini vacay to the beach! I don’t know about y’all but after the past few weeks, this vacay is much needed. I could say the same about this glorious break in weather we are getting in NC! It’s got me itching for sweater weather and fall temps which is why I’m starting today by sharing this killer bow top with you.
I have always been a fan of the “hot-cold” look. I really love wearing long sleeves or heavier fabrics with shorts and more summery tops with jeans. Since it is still a little too toasty to wear my cozy sweaters, I’m starting the transition with this short sleeve bow top. It’s light weight still, but a little more substantial than the flowing, breezy tanks and off-shoulder tops we’ve all been living in all summer. I of course gravitate to white and light neutrals even though I will inevitably spill something on it soon so naturally this one caught my eye. I’ve been super into knots and bows lately so that detail attracted me too. The black and white stripe gives it a casual, sporty look with an air of Gucci and that combo is always a win for me. So basically- this bow top is a home run. I wore this look for my last day in Chicago for TBSCon and really liked that it was casual yet elevated.
My bow shorts are one of my best summer purchases! I love them so much I got them in black and pink (see them here)and have worn them out. The cotton fabric has a gorg sheen to it and the high waisted fit + pockets + pleats + bow = DREAM! I’ve linked them below and they are on sale now (hooray!) but going fast. These will definitely be making the labor day trip with me and honestly this sweater will too which I’ll probably just throw on with my go-to denim shorts and be a total beach bum.
What are your plans for labor day and what are you packing? You guys know from this post that I’m a terrible packer so tips and ideas are always appreciated! Hope you guys have a fab Tuesday !
