Lemon Print

Crop Top and Denim Summer Outfit

My weekend was pretty uneventful until Sunday rolled around. I was laying in my bed and had the sudden urge to just go somewhere. Not like down the street, but somewhere I’ve never been before. I was watching ESPN yesterday when the Pan Am Games in Toronto came on TV. That’s when it hit me. Why don’t I take a trip to Toronto? It’s close enough that I can drive, and it’s perfect for a weekend getaway.

When Joe (my boyfriend) and I talked on the phone yesterday, I said “let’s go on a trip”. He was instantly down, and loved the idea of Toronto. Since he’s in Cleveland, it’s only a four and half hour drive from his place. Fast forward to last night, and we had already booked a hotel and started mapping out our plans. I’m a pretty spontaneous person, and I love that I have someone who is as equally down for whatever. I really have no insight into anything about Toronto, so I’ve already started doing my research!

If anyone’s ever been to Toronto and has any good advice, please let me know!

Madewell Denim with Crop Top

Let’s talk about this crop top. I’m not a crop top girl, but this one breaks the mold. If you’re skeptical of those fitted, barely there crop tops, then a loose-fitting top like this is for you. I feel so comfortable wearing it, and it honestly doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a crop top. There’s a drawstring along the bottom, so you can make it as tight or loose as you want.

This Samantha Pleet lemon print top was my first purchase from Continuum in Over-the-Rhine, and it definitely won’t be my last. The store is adorable, and you feel at home the second you walk in. I love when a boutique feels that way!

I’m also pretty excited because I’ve officially experienced my first pair of Madewell denim. I’ve always heard great things, but never got around to trying them myself. Please, if you are reading this and in the market for new denim, GO TO MADEWELL! This pair is high-waisted, and they’re probably the most flattering jeans I’ve ever owned. They feel more like leggings than jeans. Now that is denim I can get behind!

    I agree – that top is adorable and very easy to wear. I’m just not a fan of awkwardly cropped crop tops 🙂 And a trip to Toronto sounds like a ton of fun. I went to Toronto once with my family and I don’t remember much but I do remember loving Greektown. I think you mentioned you’re Greek so you probably would love it!
