Yesterday was spent in Sandy Hook, New Jersey with my boyfriend and his family for a little bike riding through the park and a barbecue in the picnic area. For the occasion, I paired this cute eyelet crop top that I scored at Nordstrom on sale and these high-waisted Levi's from Aritzia. For a little fun in the sun, I opted for my more casual attire. Since I was going to be riding my cruiser through the park, denim shorts and a lightweight top seemed to be a good idea. If I'm dressing down, my Céline Trio is almost always my bag just because it's so easy to carry and you can't go wrong with a red crossbody. These plain crisp white and blue denim outfits always need a "pop of color." And what's a casual day without my reliable white Converse Chuck Taylor's?

Here's a close-up of the eyelet details of my top. I was at the mall on Friday with Marco trying to find more staple pieces for my summer wardrobe. I'm not going to lie, I definitely wanted to spoil myself because I just finished a 6-week-long restaurant design project. I love post-finals shopping! I first went to Aritzia to shop for some new shorts and picked up a black lace bralette as well. I ended up walking out with these great high-waisted Levi's that will definitely be playing a recurring role in my summer wardrobe.
High waisted shorts are a great way to make your legs look longer, hold your tummy in, and not to mention allow you to wear a cute crop top without showing too much skin!
Everyone needs to have a pair of white Converse Chuck Taylor's in their closet. They're so great for the spring and summer because they go with absolutely everything. And don't even worry about getting them dirty! They should look worn in. I purchased mine from Nordstrom and these do run large. I suggest going 1/2 a size down since Chucks often can make your feet look bigger than they actually are.
For my staple silver accessories, I'm rocking my Pandora Bracelet, Tiffany & Co. Infinity Bracelet, and my Marc By Marc Jacobs Baker Watch.
I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! Thank you so much for reading!
