On Friday nights, I can’t stop reaching for this top. I wore this maroon halter and denim shorts combo out to our local winery, which serves wood fired pizzas on Friday nights (delish!). It was scorching hot, so a pair of shorts was a must. I love this pair because they are a darker denim and give a more polished feel than most jean shorts. I’m not sure why denim shorts like this are so hard to find, but they are! Again, I highly recommend this under $40 top (also see it styled here). The back of it is total perfection, the color will take you into fall (also comes in two other colors/print), and you don’t have to wear a strapless bra (I love this one, which can be converted to accommodate this neckline).
Also, it appears this gorgeous studded bag that I have taken nearly everywhere this summer has been marked down 40% off. It is the perfect size, and definitely can be used year round.
