If you're on the East Coast like I am you're probably experiencing what feels like the longest winter ever. Well technically it's Spring but it's snowed just last Friday so clearly Mother Nature is really confused. This past weekend I went on a little well needed getaway to Delaware. It wasn't very far at all but far enough and they had loads of sunshine! The weather was so gorgeous it made me forget about the unexpected flurries that covered NJ the night before. 

This sunny day called for my new sporty tee and some ripped jeans. I haven't jumped on the completely ripped apart jeans bandwagon but I'll eventually get there. Being that the weather has been inconsistent I went for an easy casual look. I threw on a pair on slip on sneakers and my sunnies and called it a day.

I initially wore my tee on its own but tied the button up around my waist to provide definition. It find difficult to wear some trends without looking like I'm swimming in my clothes. My goal is to look stylish and trendy but my main concern has always been the fit. If it looks like I'm borrowing my big sisters  clothes then it's a no-go for me. 

I must also sing the praises of the ripped jeans I wore. Praise the jeans gods at the Gap for creating these high waisted jeans for petites. The Gap has always had petite jeans but I've been on the hunt for high waisted petite jeans and it's been quite the mission. I'm seriously obsessed with these and ordered them in a darker wash and white! I did roll them in because I haven't taken them to the tailor yet but the fit is fantastic! Not only is the fit great but I love the light wash, they are stretchy enough but aren't jeggings, and make the booty look bomb. I can't say enough great things about these jeans! 

All in all, it was a great beach day. 

Hope you all have a great week!
