Upgrade Your Tee & Cutoffs

The days have been like Summer here and the nights are barely cool.  I haven't been too interested in wearing lots of clothing.  But when am I ever??  Ah yes, I am a 1 to 2 piece gyal so I've been welcoming this sudden signature Summer camp weather... 
...with cutoffs and a tee. 
but I thought an upgrade was definitely in order, yes?


Instead of a fitted crew neck tee, I chose my asymmetric heavily draped tee-like top.  My cutoffs that day were more demure, if not a bit boyish only because I thought I'd take my new saucy, strappy heeled sandals out for a spin (and my other shorts are practically panties).  A nice juxtaposition.


I came across these sandals in Santee Alley.  The strappy, criss-cross caged trend is everywhere in all sorts of prints.  I love it finally in python print!  

For those trends that aren't for me in the long run, I like to have fun with them in a less expensive capacity.  Maybe even a disposable way (exhibit A: a frivolous hat I wore a few times and gave away within a month).  And that's fine with me when exercised only a few times a year.  Half the fun of fashion is styling yourself outside your box from time to time.

Anyway, this was very subtle but I had fun with these lace ups.

top: Asos / jeans: "K" some Japanese brand / sandals: Santee Alley

lips: Milani Flamingo Pose / nails: Revlon #571 Posh 

I've so been enjoying my new cropped cut!  But even more, this sizzling, bright weather has been giving me life.  I want my makeup and accessories to be equally vivid and vibrant.

I've been exploring fun color coordination again with my beauty routine.  Can't wait to show you some new ideas I'll be playing with this Summer!



 It's always fun to alter classic looks with a trendy "now" twist.  That's what's so amazing about my lil Tiny Closet.  

I've had both this top and shorts for over 5 years and yet I've never worn this outfit before.  

The endless, simple ensembles I can get from a paired down wardrobe and some creative imagining never cease to surprise me.
