While my belly button and three incisions heal up from surgery I've been avoiding crop tops BUT I was finally able to wear this new Minkpink crop from the babes at Koshka. I paired the nautical vibes with my favorite denim cutoffs, jeffrey campbell boots and wildfox sunnies for perfect South Beach vibes. Miami doesn't scream "street style" destination but a little crop & denim action stands out in a city full of Brazilian bikinis. And why yes, I will have a piña colada at my beach side cabana. Am I tan yet??

I'm trying to be more "chic" with my personal style but sometimes the inner sporty-bum comes out. Paired these sweet pull on leather jogging pants with an oversized denim guys shirt and my trusty new balances, of course. Comfiest. Look. Ever. And come on, leather jogging pants? That counts as chic right???

A few weeks ago I found this great little bandeau bikini from H&M. Blame it on my Santorini pinterest board and minor destination obsession with Greece, there is no fresher color combo then blue and white. Although I typically stick to (surprise) black when it comes to swimwear, at 4.95 a piece I was much more willing to step out of my comfort zone. I don't normally rave about swim too often but seriously. This might be the best bikini ever. It's cut like a 200 dollar suit and actually gives me some cleavage, crazy. Get it (here) now and thank me later.

Nothing screams summer like an all white look, with tomboy flair of course. For this blogger collab with American Eagle, I paired their boy crop jeans with the short sleeve favorite shirt and converse for a boyish look perfect for this weekends backyard BBQ's galore. The school uniform vibes on top are balanced out with ripped knee detailing on baggy fit jeans. Both pieces are light weight and perfect for keeping cool (and looking cool, obvi) in crazy heat. Excuse me while I wear variations on this look all summer long. Check it out on the AE blog here.

Sometimes I enjoy dressing like I'm about to go ref a little league soccer game. This, is one of those times. My cheapie, striped H&M top is throwin all sorts of sporty vibes paired with these perforated leather shorts by Lovers + Friends. Oh, and New Balances too??? Yeah, I went there. Maximum soccer star effect, duh.
