Better than Basics

Helloo friends!! I hope you all are having a great summer so far! I can’t believe it’s already the middle of July. For today’s post, I’m sharing a look from this past weekend; my parents and brother came to visit and I showed them around Ellicott City. I wanted to share my go-to outfit when I’m having a casual day! It was really hot this past weekend (98 + humidity – sheesh) but it was going to rain so I brought a flannel just in case. Plus the flannel adds a little somthin’ somthin’ to the outfit, of course!

I got this crop top from, you guessed it, Island Gypsy! My favorite part of this shirt is the ruffle details. It really adds a girly flare to a basic crop top! The ribbed material is also very breathable and great for summertime. My denim shorts are from Hollister, and my flannel is from Macy’s. Whenever I’m dressing for a casual event, I aim to be as comfortable as possible! We were going to be walking around a majority of the day, so I paired the outfit with these Steve Madden sneakers. These sneakers are so comfortable, and go with almost anything because of their color. Pro-tip: make sure to wear small socks or you will get blisters!

While showing my parents around Ellicott City, I found Sweet Elizabeth Jane boutique. That’s where I got these sunglasses from, how cute?! Only $25. The store is adorable, and totally my aesthetic. They do a great job of drawing you in; in the front of the store they have an old classic car, so cool! I am definitely gonna be heading back soon to add more of their adorable clothesย to my closet.
