One of my favorite qualities in a Fashionista is when she is willing to try out trends but ultimately sticks to the styles she loves to wear. This Fashionista told me that she doesn’t like wearing dresses or skirts and keeps her daily approach more casual. I can definitely roll with her effortless style.

On a hot and humid summer day, lightweight shirts are the way to go, just like this Fashionista’s crop top. She balances out the airiness on top with some bold jewelry on her wrists. I am automatically drawn to a lot of bracelets, or an ‘arm party’ as bloggers say. So when I saw her stack of spiky and eclectic bracelets and rings I felt like I hit the jackpot!

How To: The key to high-waisted shorts is finding ones that fit well and don’t constantly ride up. Invest in a great pair of black or white high-waisted shorts to be the foundation to your summer look. Put in a cute bellybutton ring (if you have one) and add a fun and comfy crop top. Finish the look with some chic loafers and a stack of bracelets and a handful of rings.
