No news around here that this chic is into color. Anything that “pops” and adds layer of fun to a look wins an A+ in my book! I’m realizing I’m decades late to the game, but this year I’ve found that nothing does that quite as well as RED. Pure, solid, vibrant, bright red. (As evidenced here and here.) These days, whenever I see it around, I can’t help but snatch it up. And lucky me that it took the form of one of my favorite silhouettes this season in this darling top!

SHIRT   red ruffle off the shoulder top   |   SHOES   slip on sneakers (just $35)   |   EARRINGS   white tassel earrings (old H&M, similar $10 linked)   |   SHORTS   white denim cut off shorts (old Zara, similar linked)   |   BAG   kate spade penelope cross body   |   LIPSTICK   heat wave

A trick for giving your colorful spring and summer pieces extra pop? Pair them with white! I’m talking as much white as possible. This top was so vibrant that I took that literally… white cutoffs, white slip ons (loving this affordable new pair!), a white cross body and white statement earrings! I love the fresh, larger-than-life feel it gives off… unique, but totally wearable.

On a side note, I get a lot of questions about these white tassel earrings. Unfortunately, they were from H&M last summer, and I haven’t seen them back yet. Keeping my eyes peeled for y’all! In the meantime, check out this pair, this pair and this pair. Having had these for a year, I have to say a pair of white earrings is a must. They go with everything, and add such a summery feel to whatever you have on!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I had the loveliest, laziest time with some of my best girlfriends at the lake. Saturday was dreary and dark all day, so we parked our booties on a few couches and didn’t move all day! It was the best time chatting, reminiscing, and laughing all together. (Cheesy but true.) Time like that recharges my battery, and I’m feeling ready to take on the week ahead!

Love from Texas,

Kate
