dressed in summer with stylemint {day 3}



T Shirt: Willow T c/o StyleMint; Skirt: H&M (similar style here); Jacket: Old Navy (similar style here); Shoes: J. W. Anderson X Aldo; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Watch: Michael Kors

When it comes to dressing up for dinner and drinks over the summer, I love pairing seemingly basic pieces with some of my more polished items -- just to turn things upside down a bit. This T Shirt, with it's sheer paneling and longer asymmetrical cut, lent itself nicely to a fitted peplum hem skirt. Unexpected but still effortless and laid back (with a side of statement heels, of course).

If you're just joining now, check out my other StyleMint looks here and here and, as always, you can shop their full selection here.

  18. I really love the detail to the hem of that tee - I think it's things like this that make tees special and transform them. I wore my denim (krystal influenced ;) again today on my blog - would love to know what you think of the look! Have a great weekend

  32. Not to be nosy...but what size did you get? I'm thinking of getting the white Willow T, but I'm not sure which size I should get. Do you think they run true to size?

    Thanks!
