Floral Halter with Cropped Wide Leg Jeans

Morning Ladies

I hope you had a nice  weekend.

I took off Friday as it was my mom’s birthday and we were celebrating this weekend with a party for her and my niece who has now hit double digits! 10!

I styled this favorite red floral halter from Mango, with my other favorite cropped wide leg jeans.


We had an eventful weekend with my family all celebrating my mom’s 76th Birthday and my niece’s ( whom you met on the blog) big double digits, the big 1-0! Hard to believe time has gone by.

We had a great time together, social distancing and being outside with a few of my family under a canope, and our deck. Surprising my mom with a lemon white cake , the delectable lemon curd-like filling with lemon mousse was oh so tasty! Gifts were exchanged, we went in on an egg chair that my niece wanted for the patio at her house. Good thing she wrote a “wish list” as I wasn’t quite sure what to get a 10 year old. Things were quite easy when she was younger, American Girl doll outfits were the gifts of choice.

We did alot o house hunting with my brother and sister in law. They are looking for their dream home here as they move from the VA near DC area. You do get more house for your money here in NC.


I typically will wear a fitted top with these jeans as when you have volume on the bottom ( the wide leg jeans) you want to create a more fitted style up top. This top from Mango fits  closer to the body but flows out at the bottom.

We went back to “Turtle Bay” to shoot these pictures and we saw a beautiful bird that looked like a statue, not moving until we got a bit close. It was a blue heron- gorgeous bird. I could just look at wildlife all afternoon.

I chose the long white floral earrings as I picked up the bits of white in the halter top.

One of my favorite outfit combinations in this heat is jean shorts and a cute top. The wide leg denim is a nice change, and I dressed it up a bit with my Chinese Laundry bone colored sandals. To make this more casual you could wear espadrilles.
