My post consists of a grey wrap skirt from Zara and a sleeveless, fish printed, jeweled tank by Phillip Lim. The statement piece is the top itself which has bold spring/summer colors, but to elevate the tank from any ordinary tank, there are clear jewels around the neckline. Makes it easy without having to accessorize much. Another feature of the tank is a contrasting sheer fabric on the back, making it a bit sexy.
On a side note, I have become more of a fan of Phillip Lim's collection because of how amazing his clothes fits me. From having a more block style dress to a dress that gives you a fit and flare to show your physique. If you haven't checked out his F/W 14 collection, go check it out! Great fabric, great prints, and simplicity.

I styled this top in two ways, one with a skinny boyfriend and with distressed shorts. The boyfriend jeans are by Joes Jeans which I sized down to create a skinnier fit. It's a great pair of jeans to have as they are more true denim compared to other brands that have a lot of stretch quality these days.
The super distressed shorts are from Topshop and are meant to be boyfriend shorts, but I sized down in them as well for a tighter fit. To add a more carefree feel to the outfit with shorts, I put on a fedora from Topman, which is nice to block the sun from my face.
Lately, I have been admiring jbrand's ready to wear collection from being around them at work. In an easy phrase, it's casual sophistication.

My look for the day is this slip-like dress from Elie Tahari. The key point on this dress is the lace panel on the top of the dress, and at the bottom hem. With a more classy silky look in the front contrasted by a knit fabric on the back of the dress allows for a light weight dress great for the humidity. However, I can see this with an oversized coat for the upcoming season.
