AJ Wears :: A crop and a midi

Trend I'm loving: the crop top with midi skirt. It's ladylike and edgy all at once, and it's FUN to wear. I'm riding this trend as long as I possibly can, because I'm aware by the end of summer it'll probably be gone. I wore today's ensemble to a baby shower for one of my bests, followed by a little patio time at US Pizza.

Top, Local boutique Beehive (similar from Charlotte Russe).
Skirt, ASOS (exact).
Heels, ShoeDazzle.
Hat, Local boutique Fringe (similar from J.Crew Factory)

And here are the shower hostesses with our Baby Mama. Congrats, Amy! Also, s/o to Elizabeth for taking my photos today. You're a dear.

AJ Wears :: A floral tee

Nothing says spring like a floral tee. I tweeted about how soft this one was yesterday - I'd wear it every day if it weren't for the very recognizable print. Today's outfit took me to work, a lovely lunch in the River Market, and then to the Brew HaHa at The Rep after hours. PS - Second City is in town and absolutely delightful. I may have laughed until I cried a few times.

Tee, Rebecca Taylor (exact - but wait for a sale. I paid less.).
Jacket, H&M (similar from JCP).
Jeans, Hudson Nico in Abbey (exact).
Shoes, JustFab.
Bag, Barbara Bui (similar from ChicNova).

AJ Wears :: A high-low top

I originally saw this top on Buy Now, Blog Later and had an immediate "Love at First Sight" moment. To be honest, this was the top that I broke my shopping ban for. I was certain it would sell out immediately. It's the kind of top that is perfect for pretty much any occasion/day/time/whatever. I'm telling myself that, anyway. I adore it. I swear, I'm going to stop buying just black and white tops. Kidding. NEVER!!
