Sequins and Sea Breezes: East vs West Coast: Crochet

East vs West Coast: Crochet

5/29/2014


Hey dolls! It's time again for the East vs. West Coast mash-up with the lovely Paige from Life's A Party Dress Like It! This time we decided to do an ode to a summer trend you're going to be seeing a lot this year, crochet/lace. Paige and I were super excited to do this trend since we're both loving the crochet/lace trend this year!

I'm seriously loving the way Paige paired a lavender linen skirt with her flirty crochet top and added a a bit of dressy fun to the outfit with metallic sandals. And she's totally rocking that side braid (a definitely summer hair go-to)!

{You can view Paige's outfit details here}


Shhh.... don't tell any one but I actually wore this outfit (and took the pictures) a few weeks ago when I was over visit friends on the Gulf coast. It was an absolutely gorgeous weekend, sunny, warm with a slight breeze so this outfit was perfect. We didn't do anything fancy but we did do a lot of walking and grabbed a few drinks. These shorts were so comfortable for walking around, it was almost like wearing pajamas but way cuter. I absolutely love the neon pink color of them, it really makes you look like you have an amazing tan. I was actually surprised at how tan I looked in these pictures! I laid out earlier that day but trust me, the shorts do wonders for giving the illusion that I'm ridiculously dark (the low lighting probably helped too since the pictures are a little dark too)!

top: target / shorts: h&m {in store only, similar here} / necklace: h&m / sandals: tory burch / purse: michael kors / sunnies: ray-ban / watch: michael kors / bracelets: alex & ani {initial, starfish}, stella & dot / lips: pixi shea butter lip balm in coral crush
