another day, another fun spring/summer look! i work part time as a nanny, and i’m constantly trying to find the balance between “cool” and “comfy” — kid friendly clothing is often a challenge to wear if you’re trying to feel remotely fashionable, but forever21 has released a collection of the cutest ‘dad-style’ hawaiian buttondown shirts. what makes them so special? they’re cropped!
i bought this top in two patterns. it’s the perfect length, because i’m able to wear it tucked into a high waisted skirt – or – out and loose with a pair of cutoffs. i collaborated with plaka sandals on this look, which is an israeli based footwear company who’s goods are currently sold on amazon (linked below!). plaka, however, is a small town on the greek island of crete for which they are named. they’re flat – but they’re soft – and they’re handmade which is my favorite part. the unique, braided, criss-cross design adds to the beachy vibe of this look (and reminds me of my grecian honeymoon!).
last but not least, this look pairs perfectly with my jord wood watch! hawaiian stye button downs aren’t just for dads anymore. if you’re tired of graphic tanks and need to keep it cozy for the kids like i do – this is a great alternative to throw into the mix of fun pieces to get you through the work week! check me out on instagram to stay looped into all the summer fun!
