Made For Summer (See Jane Wear)

One term I’ve never used to describe my style is boho.  An effortless, peudo-hippie look is something I strived for a bit back in college (and even sometimes today), but could never quite get right.  There are those natural bohemian-esque girls with their perfectly, messy hair, over-sized shirts, arms full of bangles and peasant skirts that drag along the floor; much to my chagrin, I’ve just never been able to pull it off.

I was asked by JC Penney to particpate in the American Living’s Made for Summer blogger challenge.  They sent me this top and told me to style it however I pleased.  I tried for the boho look yet again, but instead of a long skirt, added my crochet, lace shorts and highest platform espadrilles (yes, all three times I’ve worn them have been documented right here on the blog).  While I realize that there’s a whole myriad of textures happening here, my inner bohemian tells me that it’s ok.  Afterall, when one goes boho, one must go all the way. 

 Check out the other bloggers participating:


  1. Those shorts are the cutest!! They are perfect on you! I don't know as I can pull of a boho look, either – I end up feeling costumey! You look super summery & adorable here though, loving this on you!

  2. Loooving this look on you. I think you pull this off effortlessly, boho or not. The shoes are just perfection, as they are in every outfit post. WONDERFUL buy!


  3. Really adorable, 'effortless' outfit 🙂 I've always loved those layered lace style shorts, wouldn't have thought to pair them with that style of shirt, but you definitely made it work.

  4. I am in love with your shorts. Love the way you've styled it with the blue top and wedges. Seriously stunning. I'm having this obsession with lace and crochet. Just bought 2 pairs of lace shorts at TJ Maxx, still looking for an ivory pair.
