Swing Top Life

September 8, 2017

Thinking of and praying for everyone in Florida as Hurricane Irma is on the move...

What we have in this post are three of my favorite new wardrobe pieces: grey Toothpick Jeans from J.Crew that I can't stop wearing (especially with white tops), Cynthia Cazort Collin's easy and elegant Swing Top, and my only flat sandal purchase of the summer (besides flip-flops) in the Bo Tassel Wrap Sandal by Loeffler Randall. It's a trifecta of neutral newness and I'm wearing all three like crazy as we head into fall.


I’m always on the look-out for great white tops (they’re my hoarding obsession) and even though I have several white off-the-shoulder shirts, this one by by Cynthia caught my attention for it’s simple (but not simple) silhouette. I love the swing factor and in a season that’s dominated by ruffles, it’s nice that this guy has flow but not frills. The best part: under the ruffle there’s fabric that goes straight down (kind of like a liner) and surrounds the back and tummy for coverage.

All I can say about these jeans is that they’re a magical grey color and somehow they look great with practically everything. I’m loving the fit so much that I’m considering getting them in another wash…the Bryson looks like a perfect medium hue!

And it might be later in the season to buy a pair of sandals but I’m SO glad that I scooped up the Bo. Most ankle-wrap sandals are a little too extreme for me but these ones have the right amount of texture and detail without being over the top. Bonus that the criss-crossing across the feet totally conceal my bunions (not even 30 and have the feet of an elderly woman – what can ya do?!).
