in my closet

zara printed top & shorts / elizabethcraneswartz.comI have a few fun events this summer and knew this top and these coordinating shorts from zara would be perfect to mix and match for any occasion. they have just a hint of vintage and at the same time feel very fresh. first up this weekend is the opening reception for the alumni art show during my college reunion. I have two pieces in the exhibit and thought it'd be fun/a good idea to wear a third piece to the party. I'm thinking the neon pink & gold leaf bib necklace with this top and my white, flared linen pants will work perfectly. zara printed top & shorts / elizabethcraneswartz.com

technically, this is considered a crop top but it definitely hits low enough that I feel comfortable and I love the slight cap sleeve. the shorts are just the right mix of high waist and inseam if you know what I mean. it might be an age thing but I'm pretty particular about the rise and length of shorts and these just work.

there's a necklace just like this listed in the shop if you'd like your own!
