Today, I wanted to share some looks from the new brand Harper + Liv. If you have not got a chance to check out this brand, please do so now. Their Summer collection is a mix of boho with tropical vibes. The collection has crochet pieces, distressed jeans, and tropical prints (they have great printed pants). For this look, I paired their Embroidered Mesh Tank with their Distressed Capri Jeans.
This tank is on the sheer side so if you like to err on the side of caution and not have your bra show, they do make a great bandeau that you can wear underneath. The mesh on the tank allows for ventilation, so despite the humidity, I was very comfortable. I wanted the tank to be on the looser side, so I went with a 2X. Summer dressing for me is about looser fits. I do not want to be stuck to my clothes at the end of the day. The detailing on this top is simply amazing. I love the lace and flowers. I made sure I took a close up so you can see how beautiful this top really is.
The underrated star of this look is the capris. Wearing denim in the summer for most is a no no, but I am always in the hunt for lightweight denim because I am a denim addict. These are lightweight, and the bonus is that they do not stretch out despite having 2% spandex. I have several denim capris that are good until you sit around in them and then they are soo stretched out that I am constantly pulling them up (because I hardly wear belts, I know- bad). That is not the case with these. The distressed capris are a must have for your summer wardrobe. The length for me hit my sweet spot, so I will be wearing these well into fall.
My second look is all about this gorgeous kimono. I was never really into kimonos, I thought they would make me appear wider due to the volume, but this one has made me a believer that you can rock volume without looking like a sack. The Georgette Kimono is absolutely beautiful and can be dressed up or down, which is great because I definitely would wear this to work over a nice tank dress. Since, the kimono is quite roomy, I sized down and went with a 1X. The geometric print is so much fun, and I love how down the back and on the trim they switch it up with a tribal print.
Cut off shorts! Yes, I am wearing them, and I love them. When I first saw them at the showroom I was concerned about how much skin was going to show, but I wore a bikini and didn't hide my legs, so I am adding shorts to my repertoire. Not only do these look good, but they fit well. When you have big thighs shopping for shorts can be frustrating. Either they are too tight making your legs look like sausage casings or they are too big making you look sloppy. These are fitted, but the cut off allows for a more roomier fit. I am in love with my choices, and I hope you do too. For both looks, I went with a necklace from Baublebar, Ray Ban sunnies, and Vince Camuto sandals. There you have it lovers, Harper + Liv is a definite must have in your wardrobe. You can find them at Lord & Taylor, Dillards, and now Macy's.com!
