Now that summer has finally arrived in Seattle, I’ll be spending every possible second seaside! Seattle’s gloomy skies haven’t completely evaporated with the rest of the country’s heat wave, but I think the seaside feels a little dreamier, a little more wistful and poetic, with grey, cloud-blanketed skies.
For days or nights with a little residual chill to the air (or just for some extra coverage), layer a breezy tank over a high-neck top or tee of a contrasting color. This elevates a simple summer top with a cool color-block effect.
An easy trick to turn your shirt into a crop top is to knot it! The knotted tank shows off the top underneath, playing up the layered look. I topped it off with delicate, layered gold necklaces and my new favorite statement earrings.
Lastly, I threw on my newly thrifted black high-waisted flare jeans for a retro vibe and my baby blue Tevas for walking comfort and color coordination. If I could dress head to toe in periwinkle, I would.
