Seashells By The Steele-Stairs

Tongue twisters are fun, but trendy tops are better. This sea-worthy polo was a total bargain babe from Belk’s end-of-summer sale. Seriously, I scout the hottest pieces there all. the. time!

Hi dappers!

Another quirky shirt to show you! Whenever its on, I tap my inner merman, feeling the need to scout a mermaid (found one at Starbucks, ha). Which bleeds into buying a $3 cold brew regardless…

As you may have gathered from the previous post, August is THE month wherein fashion risks are taken seriously by yours truly. I usually keep the wardrobe solid throughout the summer for an effortless vibe -then I quickly transition into a chic clown before autumn strikes.

Loose-fit tops are my jam as of late and this polo from IZOD checks that particular box quite freely. I love how the sleeves are slightly exaggerated in length, topped with (incredibly charming) textured prints for added movement.

Trekking back to my fashion attempts, these stretchy shorts from J.Crew came to mind for that matchy-meets-stylish look. The stretchiness of the shorts coincide with the flowy-ness of the shirt, no?

The Tretorn Nylites give the dark ensemble a nice pop. I initially went for a pair of cognac loafers, which gave the look a polished feel, but opted for the white sneaks since I was going for a more relaxed look.

Anyways, have a lovely week!
