Maxi Tops and Kimonos for late summer

There's nothing like a fabulous duster or kimono or maxi top (whatever you wanna call them) to layer over your summer look. Whether it's over a bathing suit, a tee and denim shorts, or a cami and leggings -- they can seriously dress up any outfit from head to toe (literally!)

I got this pretty one from Target (similar here) and I've linked a bunch more below (including maternity and plus size, even though all should be pretty flowy and flexible).

Also - special note: these are so great for chestier / busty girls like me because I can just unbutton them and not worry about the size except for whether they fit my arms or shoulders. Total win!

10 year-round Fanny Packs

Yes, you heard me! Fanny packs are legit and don't tell me otherwise. I first bought this tan one from Target (similar here) when I shopped for my trip to Hawaii earlier this year. I knew we'd be jumping from activity to activity and wanted something easy, portable, and versatile. In comes the fanny pack.

The great thing about these is that they're useful year-round depending on what you're doing. Perfect for on-the-go storage and all those Atlanta United Games, concerts or events that prefer something clear. A clear jelly waist bag can be a savior!!

I've compiled some of my ultimate favorites here -- shop them below!

Off-shoulder tops peaked a few years ago, but I don't think they're going anywhere simply cause they feel so flattering and are super fun to wear in the summer.

As usual, it all comes down to a certain spirit in how you wear it, coupled with a good dose of self-awareness.

I figured I'd share some of my favorite off-the-shoulder looks that I have my eye on. Some are even office appropriate (providing you don't work in a strictly business casual environment); but it's safe to say most of these are for post 9 to 5 and/or weekend wear.
