Joia Monet – Crop Tops & High-Wasted Pants

The hottest time of the year has reared it’s ugly head here in the valley of the sun. With the high temperatures averaging at 104 °F, finding appropriate clothes that cater to the weather can sometimes be taxing – especially for us women! Ladies, crop tops will be your best friend this summer…

The hottest time of the year has reared it’s ugly head here in the valley of the sun. With the high temperatures averaging at 104 °F, finding appropriate clothes that cater to the hot weather can sometimes be taxing – especially for us women!

Ladies, crop tops will be your best friend this summer! Whether it’s fitted like my floral printed one, or casually hangs loose, I highly recommend you adding one to your wardrobe and styling it according to your personal liking.

Jeans and denim can be too hot of a material to wear, so these polyester high-wasted pants were the perfect match for this look. I love the elastic and the straps that can be tied into a bow either to the side or right in front. These were marked down to clearance price of $7 at Ross. Yes!!

Sandals are another must have. No one wants to work around with hot, sweaty feet in a pair of pumps or sneakers. These were also purchased at Ross during the same shopping trip. I almost left the store without them, because I couldn’t find them in a size 8.

Styling Tip: If a pair of shoes aren’t available in your shoe size, try getting them in a half size smaller, and wide. You’d be surprised to know that they may fit!

That was the case for these, and I wear them often. I opted for this gold watch and arm piece that I stumbled on at Charming Charlies. I honestly don’t know what it is, but that’s the fun part of styling! You can make it what you want! It’s now my new arm cuff, and I only paid $1 for it!! These earrings are from Aldo.

Add your favorite bag/purse/clutch – mine, of course, is a fringe crossbody – and you’re all set, babe! Don’t let the heat keep you from being creative with your day-to-day looks. And don’t forget to shop smart, wear what you want, and stay true to you!!
