playing with water

Despite sudden spikes in temperature, summer remains one of my favorite seasons. It gives you an excuse to brighten up your day with vibrant colors and bold prints which are often absent from the gloomy months of winter. Seeing people walk by in lovely dresses and sunny patterns is enough to make me wish for an endless summer. Although I adore the comfort of my winter sweaters, I always look forward to dipping into my warm weather wardrobe, which is full of intense hues that are fun to mix and match.

This is probably why I reached for this outfit this morning. I love this fuchsia top paired with the pop of navy and contrasting white. Not to mention the ruffle details, the 70s inspired print bag, or the quirky mustache jewelry. This outfit definitely puts a smile on my face while keeping cash in my wallet. For $17.99 this Target top (which you can purchase here) is a perfect summer staple. The shorts were purchased a few years back for around $20 and I find myself wearing them all the time. And these sandals were a great buy for $24.99 (and you can get yours here!). Not to mention everything is insanely comfortable!

Love this look – I hope you agree! Let me know what you think :}
