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!)

Three Trends To Try For Summer
 

Just like your favorite red wine blend, mixing different style combinations can leave you feeling good.

With summer around the corner it’s time to switch out warm layers for the light and breezy. We all know the summer basics: tees, shorts and sundresses, but since the heat can weigh you down, here are three easy ways to add some moxie to the usual summer mix. Enter: straw boat hat, off-the-shoulder tops, and flatform sandals.

Straw Boater Hat 

Straw Boater Hat: 
Top off your warm-weather look with a wide-brim straw boater. Boaters were popular among men as casual summer-wear in the late 19th century, especially for boating or sailing, hence the name. Recently, thin straw hats have become popular again among the fashion elite.  I love the vintage-French feel this one exudes. It’s the perfect accessory to top off any outfit. Toss one on for the beach, window shipping, or while running a quick errand. I bet you receive a least 3 compliments! Don’t miss the boat on this easy summer style. (Mine is on sale now, here.) 

Off-The-Shouler

Off-The-Shoulder (OTS):
The off-the-shoulder top is the playful, sexy antidote to this year’s trend of minimalism. This style is so hot right now! It's a great option for showing some skin without being compromising. Even better, it’s a look that appeals to every taste: classic, romantic, or thrift-store bohemian. An OTS top can go from day to night and leaves plenty of room for accessorizing, think earrings. There are endless options of this look on the market right now. Waterfall sleeves, detailed embroidery and layers of ruffles. Don’t shrug-off this adorable wardrobe-elevating detail.

Flatform Shoes

Flatform Sandals:
Height of a platform, functionality of a flat, another perfect blend. Give yourself a lift with this comfortable sandal. (Seriously, though, these shoes are SO comfortable.)  I love how this style looks minimal and modern. We walked the span of the winery gardens and I didn't stop once to adjust or complain about my feet hurting. (Which might be a record!) The fact that this style allows for long-wear, and gives height makes it a no-brainer. It was so nice not having a stiletto constantly stuck in the dirt! A true summer style booster. 

That’s it! Cheers to making an entrance in these statements pieces all summer long!
