I have probably said it before but I love wearing fake casual looks. I guess it is not necessarily fake, I mean I love dressing casual looks up. This way technically you are still casual, but you are also still undercover over dressed. Yesterday was my youngest sister’s graduation and grad. party. To the graduation I didn’t know what to wear so I went safe with my “blogger dress” (you know the perfect dress all the bloggers have, posted here on insta) and wedges. The graduation party was at our parents house in the backyard. I had been trying to figure out all week what to wear. I know our backyard parties are not a dressy thing, but I wanted to look cute and I knew I wanted to wear high waisted shorts (that were not denim) and a crop that only showed like not that much of my stomach. After almost three different options, I found the perfect shorts at Target and the perfect simple cropped tee at Nordstrom. Together these two made a pretty simple and casual outfit but I wanted to dress it up a little. I paired the look with my favorite tan wedges which I think make everything look better, and added a pair of summery gold statement earrings. The crop top was a pretty long one but I bought it with the intention to tie up the front, so I made sure to get a size up. I just love the tied look right now. The shorts also have a matching belt that is supposed to tie in the front but that was too much with my little knot so I tied a bow in the back instead. It all came together really well and I got a lot of compliments, especially on the shorts!
