Floral Wrap Top in Vero Beach
Greetings and cheers to the weekend! Today I’m back in Vero Beach wearing distressed white jeans and a floral wrap top. By the time we took these pictures, we’d been shooting outfits for over an hour in the Florida heat, and it was beginning to take its toll on my hair and makeup, but I love how bright and vibrant the colors are.
Happily, this top is still fully stocked! I was drawn to the unusual colors and pattern. So many florals look the same right now, but I like how this one is a little different. it also comes in blue.
For a wrap top, this one is very easy to wear. I like how it snaps over the chest so it doesn’t gape like many wrap tops. That said, the middle can fly open so I do wear a nude cami underneath. In the future, I will secure it with some fashion tape — I finally ordered some at Kelly’s recommendation, and this stuff is magical!
This shirt isn’t as short as it looks, although it’s definitely shorter than some. It would probably look better with higher rise jeans, but I wore it with these to dinner one night and it worked. Having the nude cami underneath that tucked into my jeans allowed me to sit down without worrying that I was mooning the people behind me. Ha!
It has an elastic waist, which I realized later I wasn’t wearing quite right. I had pulled it down straight and set it so the top bloused over the elastic band. If you wear it folded over, as shown on the website, it’s a tad longer overall and less bulky. I’ve worn it that way since, and it looked better.
Also, I had forgotten to take off my shaping shorts from the previous outfit — this dress — so you can see the line on my leg where they end.
All in all, this is a cute outfit that didn’t photograph particularly well, but the background is too fantastic to waste the pictures.
We were at Waldo’s at the Driftwood Resort, which is so quirky and fun with its rustic decor and beachcomber vibe. There was a pool party down below us with a live band so of course I had to Insta Story it while Martina was setting up her equipment. She caught me in the act and started shooting.
Everyone looked like they were having a great time. I would have been happy to grab a drink from the bar and join them by the pool, but we were on a tight schedule. My friends and I were planning to go back there for dinner the next night, but it got stormy so we opted for a restaurant where we could eat inside.
These earrings are from Alison + Aubrey and I love how they work with this top. They’re very lightweight and easy to wear. I also added this delicate 3-disc necklace and a cuff bracelet that reads more like a stack of bangles.
I finished the look with neutral espadrille wedge sandals, but it’s just as cute with flat sandals. In fact, I put my Millers with this outfit when I wore it to dinner because the location was super casual and I was afraid the wedges would be a bit much.
Either way, this is an outfit I can see myself wearing for a lot of occasions. This top is also cute paired with blue jeans for a more casual vibe. For size reference, I have the small. I think it’s the right size, but if you’re worried about the length, you can always try sizing up. I tend to run between sizes at Lucky Brand and can often go either way with their tops.
