Sometimes there's no shame in dressing almost head-to-toe in the same brand/designer...like with this outfit, where everything except my clutch and necklace are from J. Crew! And, tempting as it was to pair this pair of shorts with its matching top (such a huge trend this summer!) I opted to go more classic with an ivory peplum top. I love this top, because the material is stiff enough to hold its shape, which is so essential in a peplum! It's so sad seeing drooping peplums made out of some really soft cotton/jersey material - when I wear something with a deliberate shape to it, I want it to retain its shape!
Anyway, these are the last of the photos taken by Crys, sadly! Luckily she's coming to visit me in a couple weeks (her first time visiting since I moved here 5 years ago!!) and I can't wait!
