This long holiday weekend felt like it went on forever, in a good way, and thankfully ours was filled with lots of time with family and friends, and fireworks, but it was so jam-packed that when all was said and done, it was also down-right exhausting.  My own little family and I escaped out east for a short trip to unwind and spend some much-needed quality time as a family of five.  Long Island is, and will always be, one of my favorite spots to go for that.  We made our way to the wine stand and the vineyard and I wore this easy, breezy, summer-esque midi-skirt from J.Crew, which has become a popular fixture in my wardrobe (so popular that it sold out, but look for similar styles here and here).  I paired it with the shirt that goes with absolutely everything this summer.  It is crisp white and the crop-top is perfect to wear with maxi skirts, midi skirts and all of the high-waisted denim, both long and short, that are trending this season.  It is also pretty perfectly priced at $32.

OUTFIT DETAILS:

I usually pair my summer staples with plain t-shirts, and rotate them throughout the summer, but had been searching for a top like this that elevated the look a little more.  The ruching adds a nice detail.  And this off-the-shoulder style is what I love to wear most in the warm weather.  I sized up since I have a pretty long torso and don’t love baring my midriff, but love the fit with higher waisted bottoms.

Here’s to another weekend!
