Asos Top, Similar // J.Crew Pants // J.Crew Bag // Madewell Sunnies // J.Crew Wedges // J.Crew Link Bracelet

I really don't think that there is anything more fun for a summer outfit than a white crop top.  It shows the perfect amount of tan skin that you've been tirelessly working on.  That's why I thought it was very appropriate to pull this one out for dinner the other night.  I also think it compliments these pants perfectly and makes them even more fun than they already are.  I've worn these pants so much since I bought them but never had the chance to put them up and now they're on sale (lucky you)!

Marshalls Top // Ily Couture Sweater // F21 Shorts (bought mine big) // J.Crew Bag // J.Crew Espadrille, Similar // Ray-Ban Sunglasses

Oh Hawaii, there really aren't enough good things to be said about you.  Between beach days, pool days, golfing and drinking life doesn't get much better.  Some sunburns here and there can't even stop us.  I'm pretty sure no one in the family is planning on coming home at this point.  If only that was an option :)

In other news, I bought and justified these espadrilles for this trip and while I have only worn them once I really do love them.  They are a fun addition to simple jeans shorts and a white tank.  I think this combo will continue even when I'm back at home.

When it comes to dinner my husband and I both agree a salad generally won't do the trick.  However, when I found this salad, there were just too many yummy ingredients to pass it up.  So when I finally got around to making it I didn't have all the things the recipe called for so I improvised and I must say this is not only my favorite salad now but probably my favorite meal.  I have now made it for almost everyone in my family and they agree too!

1 head of romaine
4 pieces cooked bacon
1 avocado
10 cherry tomatoes halved
1/2 cup toasted almonds
2 grilled chicken breasts, cubed
1/3 cup parmesan
1/2 cucumber

1/4 cup olive oil
3 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1tsp honey
pepper & salt

 J.Crew Tank, Similar // Marshall's Shorts // J.Crew Bag // Anthropologie Sandals // Madewell Sunnies

Well that sure was a long and unexpected break!  I keep saying this, but things have been crazy around here lately.  I'm back now, and hopefully I'll stick around this time.  Regardless, when summer hits all I seem to wear is shorts.  It's an investment for me that doesn't go unnoticed.  I love wearing them casually and also a little more dressed up.  Yesterday was a hot day full of errands which always called for shorts and a tank.  I tied the tank to add a little interest and stacked my "summertime" bracelets to finish the look.  What items do you reach for most in your closet?
