Hello from the land of laundry! We’re currently shaking sand out of every nook and cranny, and already missing the beach. Sadly, the Red Tide found its way to Anna Maria on our last day, and it was devastating to see all the lost sea-life. I feel so bad for all the people just arriving in Florida for vacation, too!!
Even though it ended on a sad note, we had an amazing time, and that little island still has our hearts. I’ll be posting more soon, along with a link to the rental house where we stayed.
Today I’m excited to share a peek of this magical island, along with J.Crew’s new floral collection! They partnered with artist Abigail Borg, known for her quirky and cute florals, to design a line of gorgeous pieces that will transition beautifully for Fall.
Considering the heat is still in full swing here, I styled my favorite print in the collection for Summer.
I love the pink and navy of this delicate floral…it’s feminine, but not too dainty…and pairs beautifully with denim. The silk tank has a flattering v-neck in the front and back, and dresses up or down depending on the styling.
I just discovered these high-waist cut-off shorts, and can’t believe I went all Summer without them!! They are seriously so comfortable, and insanely flattering! They’ve done something magical with the pocket placement, too. Just check out the perfect reviews!
Fit Tip: Both are true to size, I’m wearing a 0 tank and 26 shorts. If you’re chesty, I’d size up in the top.
The Abigail Borg florals are available in several pieces, including swim! This one-piece models a ballet leotard, with v-neck front and scoop back. It has a full coverage back with built in cups. I love wearing oversized shirts as cover-ups, and this classic chambray is effortlessly chic.
Fit Tip: I size up in swim, especially one-pieces to fit my longer torso. I’m wearing a 4.
Y’all know J.Crew is my favorite go-to for swimwear, both one-pieces and bikinis. You can’t beat the quality for the price, and they hold their shape and color for several seasons. Not to mention, classic shapes that are always so flattering to a woman’s body. (See my collection here, here and here.)
I love cozy layers for Fall, but I’m not ready to say goodbye to Summer just yet! But I will be wearing the pretty pink floral under jackets next season. Are you still in total Summer mode, or ready to move on?
