Hayley-Inspired Outfit

IMG_8968.JPGWhen we were at the beach, Hayley came out one night in THE CUTEST OUTFIT EVER!  I kept thinking, “If I were only 20-something again….”

Then, when scrolling through my latest J. Crew Factory email, I discovered these pants.  I thought, I can do a mature version of Hayley’s outfit.IMG_8467.JPGI definitely don’t need to be displaying my midriff at my age.  And, I don’t think I am young enough to do the matching tropical top with bottoms.

I instead did a one-should top with a bow-tie on the shoulder.  I did add some statement earrings and similar shoes.  I paired my cheetah clutch.

FYI…I think I have mentioned it before, but you should always go down a size with any J. Crew clothing.  I apparently gained a few pounds at the beach, because these pants are a little snug.  Need to jump on that treadmill!!!

Also, these J. Crew items are all on sale now.

Have your tried the tropical trend?

Toodle-oo,

Melanie
