J. Crew Panama Hat, Crop Top, Cobalt Midi Skirt, Coach Mint Penny Bag, White Nine West Pumps

Hat: J.Crew. Crop Top: American Apparel. Midi Skirt: Aritzia (similar). Shoes: Nine West. Handbag: Coach. Rings: Stella & Dot, The Bay, BCBG. Sunglasses: ZeroUV.

 

This outfit combines many of my current favorite trends: a classic-looks-good-on-everyone panama hat, a showing-just-a-sliver-of-skin crop top, a feels-like-a-girly-girl midi skirt and a not-your-typical-nurse’s-shoes pair of white pumps.  I’ve had my eye on a Panama hat for two summers now and finally decided to purchase this great option from J.Crew.

 

On the topic of midi skirts, in my last post I mentioned that I purchased a fabulous hot pink midi skirt from ASOS. Well, just hours after sharing that post, the skirt finally arrived in the mail.  To say I was disappointed is a major understatement.  The shape was beautiful, but I was not impressed with the material or workmanship.  Back in the mail it went immediately, so unfortunately you won’t be seeing me post that skirt.  Oh well, thank goodness for good return policies!

    Midi skirts look so good with cropped shirts Jenny. I don’t know who said midi skirts are not for small women as it looks so good on you. The same with peplum you just need to find the right shape and fit. Love that panama hat on you :-

    Aw, too bad about that skirt not being what you expected! Just receive a bracelet from Asos and it broke before I was able to wear it! That place is so hit or miss 🙁

    Loving this look and it’s nice to see a cropped top on you! And loving the Panama hat!

      Oh no, that sucks! So far, I’ve had awesome luck with ASOS. That skirt is the first item I didn’t like. Hopefully I’ll continue to have good luck with them. Thanks so much Annick!

    I love this outfit! It’s great to see you rocking two trends with the midi and the crop top, but doing it super tastefully and creating such a polished look.

    It sucks that you weren’t happy with the skirt you ordered. This is why I haven’t ordered anything except costume jewellery and shoes online…yet.

    I love how the subtle showing of skin makes this outfit HOT! I have been on a fedora/panama hat for I don’t know how long. Every time I try them on the store, they just look awful on me.

    You look gorgeous as always!
