I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I enjoyed the lack of rain thoroughly until Sunday evening that is…but the rain allowed me to indulge in my favorite new podcast – Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People by Chris Gethard. Ever since the Serial Podcast I have pretty much become hooked and am always looking for a new one and the premise of this is hysterical. The host Chris Gethard who is a comedian by trade gets a phone call and he cannot hang up no matter what and cannot stay on the line for more than an hour. It is conversation at its best! I am amazed at how much is realized by individuals and some of it is hysterical and some is heart breaking. But the bottom line is nothing is off-limits – the anonymity created causes some pretty big revelations…check it out here.
I also did some summer shopping – summer travels are around the corner and since I will be spending most of my time at the beach I want clothing that can be transformed from casual to dinner or brunch chic. I came across this top and it has a Chanel-esque quality that I love! It is a bit shredded around the neck and the perfect light weight for summer. Also the boxy shape is silly comfortable!
I added the casual cropped denim, comfy gold slides and grabbed my Céline and I was ready to roll…

The top is great casual so to make it dinner ready I added the shredded tweed shorts. The monochromatic look is always chic and classic! The outfit is perfect for the beach due to its effortless ease but frankly it would look fabulous for dinner in cosmopolitan areas – just add wedges and some jewelry.

Pattern and Tweed – I love the mixing of the different textures and patterns. The top is actually a dark navy and not black. The common blue color theme makes them a chic combo. When I saw these pants I was attracted to the mod blue pattern and short ankle length (remember the skirt I styled here). This would look great with heels and wedges for a more dressed up option – and more jewelry of coarse.
Jacquard printed pants (mine are sold out but these here would look fab as well with top)

Hope you enjoyed the top styled three ways – let me know!
