Bright whites + mint Chanel flap

maison jules lemon print scallop top white jbrand jeans

J.Brand jeans sz 24 (also sold here) in demented, Maison Jules top c/o xxs (runs wide / big), Baublebar earrings, Chanel medium flap, Ann Taylor heels c/o (similar w/ block heel)

Just a quick post today re-styling some of my favorite pieces from this past season. I last wore this lemon top tucked into a pencil skirt in this post, and these distressed white jeans have made several appearances including here and here. I love that they are the perfect ankle length on my shorter legs with no hemming needed (I make sure to keep them out of the dryer to prevent unwanted shrinkage).

Tassels are everywhere this year and I love the youthfulness they add to an outfit. Earrings are a way to dip your toes into the trend if you’re not quite sure about it yet! I finally got these in (Baublebar’s “pinata” style) after being on the waitlist for some time, and love how they swing with movement. Please note they are a little weighty – not terribly heavy in my opinion, but I can see how some wouldn’t want to go all day with them on. BB is out of stock on several styles currently, but Nordstrom carries their earrings as well.
chanel medium caviar classic flap bag crossbody
Meet the newest member of my bag family – she’s a medium flap in minty blue caviar leather with gold hardware. After owning both small and medium classic flaps, I think this size is the most versatile for everyday use. It’s roomy enough for all of my essentials and more, without being disproportionate on a shorter frame.

The strap is not intended to go cross-body, but is just barely long enough that way on someone my height (see photos above) and is one of my favorite ways to wear it!

  3. Sadly, it sounds like that's what I will have to resort to. It's a shame though. I expect better quality from LOFT, but every summer season I seem to end up with a rayon machine washable top that shrinks. Thanks for your reply!

    Hi Maria! The boy is definitely still on my list, I'm just waiting for the right one to come along because the options up for sale right now are so limited either new or pre-owned. I don't think one can ever go wrong with the classic flap though. I only wish the strap was longer like on the boy so it could more easily be worn cross-body!

    Yikes! Unfortunately the only guidelines I've heard of are to handwash cold and not machine dry, which you've already followed. I don't think there is any other solution short of dry cleaning, which actually may still cause some items to shrink a tad in my experience. If this is consistent with LOFT rayon tops, maybe size up in anticipation so you'll end up with the fit that you want?

  7. I love that Maison Jules top! Their pieces are so cute (even if the sizing is unpredictable), and lemons are the perfect whimsical print!

  8. I love that lemon top! So cute! I also have to agree with those jeans, they're the perfect length. Even ankle-length jeans tend to be a little long on me and the rise is never right for a petite frame…it seems like just the inseam is shorter, but I'm short all over! I found some other good pants styling tips here today too:

  11. Jean, why did you go with the flap instead of boy bag eventually? I am between the two at the moment, both are gorgeous!

  17. This outfit is adorable! I have a question for you about fabric. A lot of stores, esp. Loft, have been using rayon for most of their summer lines. In Loft's case, they claim on the tag to machine wash cold, lay flat to dry, but I have had 2 tops from this season shrink significantly on me. Short of dry cleaning my supposedly machine washable tees, any tips on dealing with rayon? One top I even hand washed in cold water and Woolite, prssed between towels to get water out and it STILL shrunk!

  33. You new addition is beyond gorgeous! And, I've been considering tassels too, but didn't get anything yet. Love your advice on trying out the trend with baby steps in accessories and jewelry. Great fresh and youthful look!
