I wanted this top so badly last summer. I dreamed of wearing it with just about everything and even featured it in a currently loving post. Some time towards the end, I got lucky and scooped it up with a discount. I was so happy. Since then I've worn it countless times, usually with jeans and heels for a casual date night look. This time I decided to try something different, pairing it with black shorts and sandals. I love the all black everything look but haven't tried a summery version of it. Summer in the city can be unbearable so all black is usually out of the question for me. Since this top is so light and airy it actually worked out quite well. 

I wore this on Saturday for our visit to Williamsburg. JD and I hopped on the L and went over to check out Artists & Fleas and Smorgasburg. I haven't done much Brooklyn exploring so it was really nice to get out of the city and experience a different neighborhood. It's so easy to get sucked into the bubble and not leave the immediate area surrounding your apartment, but we have been trying to make a conscious effort to see more of the city. I liked Williamsburg a lot more than I thought I would. The next stop will have to be the skee-ball pizza bar. 

Happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend!
