Boat Party!

cropped top and pencil skirt

Here’s an outfit inspired by my recent sojourn on Town Lake with the exceptionally wonderful staff at Service Menswear, in honor of yet another good friend’s departure to New York. Can I just say that it’s way more likely you’ll be invited on a boat here in Austin than in New York? Okay then.

So what do you wear on a boat? Why, something a little nautical and brightly hued, of course! I found this fun little top at my love-to-hate retailer, Forever 21, and since it’s cropped, I chose to pair it with a higher-waisted pencil skirt. The crop of the top highlights the waist and is much more flattering with a bottom that also highlights that there waist. The stripes and the little front knot felt very seaworthy, and white shoes on a boat just felt totally right too. Now, if I could get invited onto more boats without my buddies leaving for New York all the time I would be happy as a clam (or bat).

    That crop top is really cute on you! I love the summery color and how it ties at the waist.
