Top & Skirt: Topshop / Sunnies: Karen Walker / Shoes: BCBG

I’ve lived in Hawaii for most of my life, yet every Summer I am somehow surprised by the inescapable heat. Though most days I head straight for my easiest breeziest dress, now is the perfect time of year to be bold and opt for a high-slit skirt. Easily transformed, I wear this Topshop staple with a crop top when I’m trying my best to be downtown cool, or my favorite equipment blouse (tucked in) when I’m going for something a little more sophisticated.
