Monochrome Summer

Thursday, June 12, 2014







Top: Zara (here)
Skirt: H&M (similar here & here)
Bag: Forever 21 (similar here)

There's something about the sight of palm trees that instantly lifts my mood. As an East Coast girl, I always see them as the first indications of paradise. It is no surprise that I've been embracing the trend towards palm tree prints this summer. I can just imagine Meryl Streep scoffing and saying, "Palm trees? For summer? Groundbreaking." Nonetheless, I can't resist wearing the quirky but classy print.

This top is meant to be purchased with the matching midi skirt, but lately I've been trying to buy clothing that I know I will wear countless times. In this case, I knew that I would only wear the midi skirt for very specific occasions because of my height (or lack thereof). I paired this crop top with a black maxi skirt instead to emphasize the print. Although this is a monochrome look, it is still fit for summer because the top gives off a subtle athletic vibe. Besides, I can't avoid my all-black looks for too long!
