Lemon Drop

I've been keeping it rather casual for the weekend lately, and this weekend was no exception! Waffles and I wandered about wearing my sum mer go-to's while, running errands, testing out my new bucket bag and stopping to play with other Frenchies. The West Village is crawling with these little bug eyed monsters and Waffles is loving it, a little baby french even moved in across the street… named Mr. Smith - too cute!

Top: Asos Black Off The Shoulder Crop Top (or switch it up here)
Shirt (worn around the waist): J.crew French Print Pop-Over - so obsessed!
Skirt: Asos Cotton White Midi Skirt (Love this one on sale)
Shoes: Kate Spade for Keds Lemon Print Pointer White Ked Sneakers (more here)
Bag: Old Navy White Drawstring Leather Bucket Bag - It's a steal!
Only $32 in white or $28 + 15% off in navy or saddle - use ONSAVENOW
Ring:  Gold hexagon ring c/o Nikibi

Crop tops & Midi Skirts have become my summer wardrobe, they are just so functional for the City Heat. And I've said it before and will say it again - the best way to wear a crop top without showing too much trend or feeling self conscious is with a midi skirt … no six pack required! Plus, added soothing around the waist gives it that added synch to really slim your waist all while protecting your white skirt from getting too dirty! Speaking of skirts, I think a midi cotton skirt can pair perfectly with darling keds for a casual, weekend look, and I've been living in my lemon printed pointer ones from the Kate Spade collab, aren't they the cutest? I'm obsessed with the pointed toe and fresh lemon print, but ended up going a half size up as a result. You also might remember these from my 10 pieces 100 outfits spring investment post, if you need a little lemony-referesher, pop by the post!

Oh and waffles being the chubby monkey he is he can only walk a few blocks in the heat before he lays down and becomes immobile… so we always end up like this.
So When you see frenchies being toted around by their owners in the city it isn't because they are pampering their pooch - it's because their lazy, stubborn dog is too much of a diva to walk ;] #thisismylife
