She's got legs, she knows how to use 'em

"Have you met Morgan? She's a dancer. Look at her legs!"

This is how we usually introduce our friend Morgan to other people. This is also why I chose her to be my model because she looks fabulous and is pretty much game for anything.

I chose a couple summer looks and used the beautiful Roxborough Park as the backdrop. Also, Morgan lives in Roxborough so it was sort of a convenience thing.

Look at those legs! I just had to do that, moving on

I don't care what insecure people say, hats are making a comeback! It is becoming more acceptable to rock a fedora or even something as fantastic as this wide-brim hat. The hat was the inspiration for the outfit and I love it. I paired black lace shorts with this blouse tank with leather trim and pockets. It is easy enough to wear for any casual occasion and isn't sloppy. Did I mention I love the hat? I love the hat. 

WARNING! The next couple of pictures are full of so much fabulosity Kimora Lee would pass out.

I'm like totally melting into this rock

This is by far my top fave
Sooo I'm a little obsessed with the photos I took of Morgan in this outfit. I couldn't pick just one because they were all so damn fabulous! The floral top is sheer so I layered a faux leather bustier underneath and paired it with high waisted shorts. Here's the thing you need to remember with the cut-off top trend: you must wear high waisted bottoms with the top. There should only be a little space between the top and the bottom. It's called modesty, become friendly with it.

She looks like a regal lioness on the serengeti 

A chambray top is a staple everyone needs in their wardrobe. This one I paired with a high-low dress. The shirt has a southwestern vibe from the pattern on the yoke and adds some casualty for a daytime look. 

Oh! And we saw a deer and I was super excited

It seems lately the go-to fashion style is what I like to call 'festival go-er', which means everyone and their mom looks like they're going to Coachella. It's a fun casual look, but I don't think it's easy to wear most of the pieces. There's a lot of mid-riff showing and cut-offs with the pockets hanging out. Didn't Britney Spears wear those a few years ago, pre head shaving, with Uggs? While I may not be able to pull of most of the looks part of this trend my fabulous model Morgan here can. 

"Oh, what? Yeah, just hangin' out looking awesome. nbd"

Who knew a tennis court could be so inspiring

I know earlier I stated that if you're wearing a cropped top you should probably consider wearing high waisted bottoms. These last pictures kind of spit in the face of that statement and say "F you, that's what!" First off, Morgan can rock this and not many people can. Second, these are actually my shorts and they are high waisted. I, however, do not possess the lithe waistline like my companion here and am therefore not a model. Before we started taking the photos I thought the shorts were going to fall off her hips!

In conclusion, Morgan is fabulous and I hope you have a some inspiration for the summer.

Style on little warriors!

  1. Thank goodness I read this before trying to style my new crop top! Yes, I, Katherine, bought a crop top. Why? Because my idol Gigi from the LBD was wearing it: Don't worry, I now plan to pair it with a fabulous high waisted skirt.
