Friday's Fancies

27.7.12

Today's theme on {long distance loving} is a fun one -- summer treat! I knew I wanted to pick something that was not only yummy but also with a great color as the inspiration behind this look. I ended up settling on watermelon mojitos -- I love mojitos and while a watermelon one is perfect for sipping poolside, it's also a pretty color to work with. As you can see, I incorporated this color in the top, which I loved not only for its bright and vibrant shade but also for the flowy, feminine look. I paired it with shorts, another summer staple. This time around when these particular ones from H&M caught my eye, I couldn't resist.. I love the gold shimmery detailing, so cute and super affordable too! Tucked in with a simple skinny belt, this look is refined but also very summer-y. And while the glitter flats glam it up a bit, the darker bag and earrings balance out the bright color and sparkles.
