Knit One, Pearl Two

Hey everyone! I know I’ve been missing in action from the blog due to a case of laziness when it comes to booting up the laptop, uploading pics, editing through to find the keepers and then posting. But if you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m still around posting outfit pics. If you don’t already follow me, you can @1ststatestyle on IG. Anyway, I thought these knit shorts were really cute when I came across them. The problem was #1: it’s Winter time, #2: they’re pretty short and #3: I could save them to wear when it’s warmer outside but the problem with that is that they may just cause some sweating in unwanted areas! So, I decided to just do some quick photos of how I would style them and wear them to just lounge around the house when the temps outside are a bit chilly but the house is cozy and warm. They work well for me while I lounge around maybe reading a book, coloring in my adult coloring book, watching tv, sipping tea or just about anything! Well, I got some more pics to post. God Bless!

I love a shoe with ties that wrap up your legs but sometimes they can be a pain when they won’t stay tied, as you can see! Anyway, loving how the subtle tan/brown hues play against the light washed denim. The choker is one of the newest styles of accessories that are out right now. It’s not only a choker, but it incorporates these black laces that I tied into a bow. Some of the others that I’ve seen and actually purchased, wraps around the neck and just hangs loose on each side. I’ll bring it to your attention when I wear it. Until the next time, God Bless!

This dress is so cool and comfy on a hot Summer’s day. I gives me an apron/smock vibe. I love the loose, flow of it! I keep the look crisp and clean looking with the white cropped mock neck top. Just a simple look from head to toe. Until the next time, God Bless!

Denim cutoffs, a Summer staple piece! You can buy them or you can DIY them but they are definitely the go-to piece for a Summer day! They are a “trend” but not really because they have been around for decades and have and never will ever go out of style! I turn to them when I want to either be a little put-together but not want to put forth much thought and also when I just want to throw something on and go. You can style them so many ways, that’s the best part about them. And when you wear them loosely, how I like them, they are super comfy! So style them with flats, sneakers, ankle boots, knee boots, heels or whatever, and you’re good to go! Until next time, God Bless!

Summer Staple Piece

Friday: Denim cutoffs are always a go-to when it comes to easy Summer dressing! Definitely a Summer staple piece. Instead of one of my usual pairs of blue denim cutoffs I went with this white pair. I paired them with a simple tank top but styled them with this printed kimono to add a bit more interest and coverage in case I get a little chilly once night falls.  And since I was going to an outdoor festival, I wore these ankle boots instead of sandals because I didn’t want grass touching my feet (don’t judge me, lol) and also wanted to protect my feet from the crowds that I may come in contact with. Plus, I just like the look of a boot, whether ankle, knee or calf height, with shorts and dreses! And of course, I’m always excited when I can wear a hat that fits over my hair! What are your Summer go-to pieces? God Bless!
