Sequins and Sea Breezes: Casual Crochet

Casual Crochet

4/15/2015

 
Happy humpday babes! Halfway through the week already! I don't know about you but I'm definitely ready for the weekend. I have some fun plans this weekend so I'm super excited but I also know next Monday I'm probably going to be pretty tired. Oh well, that's what coffee is for, right? I hate talking about the weather here but it has been EXTREMELY warm and muggy here lately.  It appears that age old rhyme April showers bring May flowers might be true for us... at least the April showers part. So I've been trying to wear things that keep me cool in the muggy heat but also dry rather quickly if I get caught in a rain shower.
 
 
 
Enter my recent favorite trend, crochet. I love being able to throw on a crochet top over a bandeau or bathing suit top and still feel the breeze. After I threw on this outfit I felt like it was kind of a festival look but also more of an every day look. I decided to pair the top with my favorite Hollister jean shorts because I pretty much live in jean shorts and dresses from April to October in Florida. I threw on some comfy studded booties to top off the look mainly because I know in about a month it's going to be WAY too hot to wear booties so I might as well get my final days in now because I won't be breaking these out again until fall sadly. Unless we get an uncharacteristic cooler day or if I just deal with being super hot ;)
