Top Knot Boutique: Your Best Friend For Summer

Summer trends go way beyond floral, although I must admit I love blending in with a wildflower garden.  

Allow me to introduce you to Top Knot Boutique, an affordable online boutique, currated by my friends and fellow busy mamas who are on a mission to help women balance life’s many roles with fashionable ease.

I’m so smitten!

Top Knot Boutique or TKB is all about the reinvention of good ol’ classics with effortless on-trend aesthetics. Each piece featured is hand-picked by Hannah and Anita. (Read more about theses two lovelies and the "behind the scenes" on their blog here!)

Top Knot hits that sweet spot when it comes to comfort and clothing for morning, noon, and night. Laid-back, cute and easy. They carry the softest everyday pieces that brilliantly transition from work to weekend. What I love about boutique style clothing is the attention to detail. They make it easy for you to find an item that has my three musts: affordable, exclusive, and compliment worthy.

Top Knot has a great selection of slouchy tops with artful touches, timeless dresses that are so very much of the times, and that unexpected tomboy-sexy that will elevate your outfit top-knot ballerina bun and all!

Scroll on to see my selection of the ones that I’m keeping on my list of “must buys” for summer/vacation holiday 2017 and let me know which trend is your favorite! 


Stripes


What is a summer trend forecast without beloved stripes?! This season the print comes in all forms, but my favorites are in contrasting blue and white hues!

This open-shoulder top with little bell sleeves is sure to make you belle of the BBQ! I’m already planning a vineyard picnic with this sweet fitting cutie in mind. So easy. I paired mine with cream and lace shorts, but any type of denim would work just as seamlessly.

Wearing TKB first look exclusive! (Keep an eye out for this is a soon-to-be new arrival!)


Ruffles

Shoulder baring tops have taken to the next-level with a few ultra femme and frilly touches.

The color of clementines, peaches, and tangerines, this darling top will make a summer glow sing. Doll it up with a skirt, or pair it down with dark-wash high waisted denim, this look is grown up and girlie.


Blush Pink

The new neutral.

These knotted mule sneaks are the ultimate summer companion. Way to combine super comfy, supportive and adorable, TKB!  All in a shade that leans towards the earthier end of the pink pallet - that hint of warmth makes them subtle enough to wear with all! (Only $25!)


Distressed

I’ve been seeing this trend everywhere and am so drawn to the disregarded edginess of it. I do find it a little tricky – the distressing has to be done just right  – or this look can come across disheveled. This one has a high-low vented hem with a tattered design. The soft pink color and oversize comfy distressing hit all the right places!

Look 2:

I had to style this distressed top two ways (I just like it so much) – above, with heels to show you guys how easy it can be to style something like this up, and one with my sneaks and the dreamiest TKB kimono. This kimono might be one of my favorite pieces in the shop. It can be worn as a swim cover up, or to add a light layer of interest. The sheer shades of pink, tassels and the teal accent trim are on point!

Graphic Statements/Slogans

Unless you’ve living under a rock, you should know by now that wordy tees  are absolutely everywhere. From subtle word stitching to instagram friendly “hashtags” this trend is hard not to mention.

I am in love with this tank. It has ALL the good vibes! The fit is so cool – it’s cut to flatter. Just right for that “little to no effort look.” I know that’s how I like to get dressed!

(TKB also carries cute slogan baseball caps and hats. They have some new arrivals I can’t wait to get my hands on!)

The 3 Second Outfit

Jessica Wagner

What To Wear: When You Don't Feel Like Getting Dressed

It’s Saturday morning. You decided to sleep in, and now you only have 15 minutes to get ready before meeting your #girlsquad for brunch (or before heading to your kid’s Saturday morning sports event.)

We’ve all faced the dilemma - you have to leave to house, but you don't feel like getting ready or you're short on time. There is a solution (besides flaking and staying home sweatpants // no bra –the usual.) Have a 3 second outfit.

When you only have minutes to get dressed (aka Monday- Sunday) it helps to have few effortless go-to items that always manage to look cute without trying too hard. I have the perfect arsenal for making that last minute lunch date or trip to the store.

On a personal note, this has been me the last few weeks. My family and I have been dealing with multiple illnesses and it’s been tough. The amount of energy it takes to look remotely put together is almost enough to kill me. (I’m being only slightly dramatic.) When no amount of concealer is going to mask those dark circles, and you are breathing through your nose like a wildebeest with a slight limp due to a broken toe, well, good luck. (Um can I just say this tiny little appendage has caused me so much pain and left me near immobile for the first week and is still healing - word to the wise watch out for the corner of the wall - it sneaks up on you.) {No stiletto heels for 4-6 weeks.} By having a go-to outfit you feel presentable in, you allow yourself to skip over the “what the &*$% do I wear” list, and make that afternoon outing a reality.

I live in these pieces when I am not curating an outfit for a specific occasion. Bonus: this is also the perfect "hide from the paparazzi" look. 


Neutral Color Duster

Neutral Color Duster: This bad boy has been a lifesaver come spring/fall. (Last seen here.) It always managers to look chic. I actually wear this almost every day. I suggest looking for one in grey, black, or camel as those shades go with everything. Choosing a durable color will allow for easy layering from casual to high-end outfits.


Baseball Cap

Baseball Cap: Everyone should have an option for those days you just don’t want to deal with your hair. I love this dark grey and black tweed style. It’s also a go-to item on my list. I’ve had this style in my arsenal for a few years and it always manages to look tomboy-cute! If you're not a hat person, try a hair wrap or turban-style headband. Both options are sure to hide unwashed hair and keep you feeling winsome. J Crew has some super fun baseball style caps in spring colors on their site in right now. Hats are great for those bad hair days (or super windy days, as seen here.)


Dark Sunglasses

Dark Sunglasses: The more oversize the better (what dark circles?) These are my favorite pair of high-end sunglasses by Karen Walker. Invest in one special pair and I promise somehow they will always manage to look a little bit glam, no matter what you style with them. (Plus, if you keep them on, you can get away with no eye-makeup.)


Leather Leggings

Leather Leggings: They have instant-cool girl vibes. A major upgrade from your yoga pants / sweats and will trick anyone from guessing you have been a sick zombie all week.


Classic White Tee

Classic White Tee: This is an item you can never have to many of. Try tying one in a side knot to add some interest and show off high waist bottoms. (Last seen here.)


Comfortable Sneakers

Comfortable Sneakers: Converse and Stan Smiths have been on current rotation since I hurt my foot, and they are still trending across the fashion realm. I have been eyeing a pale pink pair of tennies but have yet to commit, as white are just so easy. (Seen here, here, and here.)


A Bag You Don’t Have To Carry

A Bag You Don’t Have To Carry: Being a mama I was super exited when these became popular. (Seen here and here.) A backpack purse is such a great option for running around. I hate having to lug a bag on my shoulder all day, especially when I already have enough to remember/ look after. This style you can sling on you back and forget about it. (Just remember your lunch box too kids!)

***Starbucks coffee cup optional.

That’s it dolls! I might was well share, during this shoot I felt like death, and I’ve been running around unbeknownst to me, with a baddie cold and I have to say, you would never know it from the outfit. Try it, it works (but if you are sick, stay home!)
