Sunflower Fields

A few weekends back I took a trip out east to the North Fork of Long Island for a weekend of fun with my girl friends.  We spent the day touring a few wineries, listening to live music, laughing a ton, and indulging on delicious food all day long! We also drove past this gorgeous field full or blooming sunflowers and couldn't resist stopping for some photos. I wore this adorable tie-front top from anthropologie with kick flare jeans and lace up sandals for an overall look that is easy and bohemian with girly yet refined details. I love the tie details at the front of this top as well as the straps which make it ultra girly from all the bows, but still classic in a summery blue pinstripe print that felt perfect for lounging outside with a glass of wine. I'd been dying for the perfect excuse to wear this top, and a hot summery day out and about with my girls was the ideal occasion.

If you had told me a year ago that I would soon own a pair of crop-flare jeans I probably wouldn't have believed it -- I am not really a fan of the flared jean look, especially on myself, and cropping that look didn't really make sense to me. Yet, here we are... having seen the style on dozens of fashionistas on instagram, stylish ladies in NYC, and even friends and coworkers, the look has grown on me. Plus, recent trends have seen us moving away from skinny jeans a bit, in favor of looser, comfier styles. It all started because my favorite pair of high rise distressed jeans bit the dust, and right after that my other favorite pair of jeans in a mid-wash ripped as well leaving me with a very limited selection of summery jeans to wear. So of course I started looking around for a new pair to get me through the summer, and found myself eyeing this pair of BDG crop flare jeans. The look is trendy and cool with an added element of interest that simple skinny jeans don't have.
