Hello! The weather here in Philadelphia was simply beautiful today so I took the chance to don a pair of black shorts. I styled them with one of my latest additions to my wardrobe- a tan and white tank top. Eikosi recently sent this top to me to style with one of my looks. This is the "Color Block Cropped Top in Toast," and it retails for $16.99. What I really love about this top is the versatility. The neutral colors make it easy to pair with almost any other color or print. I also love how light-weight the top is. However, the airiness of the shirt is also accompanied by a slight sheerness so I slipped a black bandeau on underneath the top.

And although the weather today here was beautiful, it wasn't quite warm enough for just a tank top and shorts so I layered a classic denim button down over my color-blocked top and slipped into a pair of black knee-highs. I also grabbed my pair of Doc Martens. I accessorized with a stylish pair of sunglasses, a statement necklace and a neutral-colored patterned tote bag. This tote bag is the perfect size for lugging my notebooks and folders to class while not feeling burdened down by it. Almost as an afterthought, I slipped on this necklace because of the way that it accentuated the colors in my bag.

Oh and I published my first article on StyleLine (Philadelphia University's student-run fashion blog) about the plaid trend this fall HERE if you want to check it out.
