all right, ladies, we’re continuing our mission to bring you a fashion distraction, no matter what is going on in the world around us. it’s hard to believe that July came and went and August has arrived. to be certain, 2020 is a year to go down in the history books and time, or the keeping track of time seems to have disappeared altogether. isn’t it crazy that we’re more than halfway through the year?! i don’t know about you, but it seems to me that the days, weeks, and months are crawling/flying by. so before we step into August, let’s take a moment to recap your favorite blog posts of July. are you ready? here we go.

while i am on my quest for the perfect summer top, i decided to head to the archives to find a few of my favorite matching separates. as you’ve seen here before, i love to pair matching separates together. you get more bang for your buck when it comes to outfit combinations because you can easily create the look of a dress, romper or a jumpsuit. i know many of you avoid jumpsuits and rompers due to the extra time spent in the bathroom. but pairing matching separates together is a perfect way to create the look without the hassle. here’s how to wear matching separates
