Happy Monday friends! Today I’m so excited to partner up with my friends at Le Marche Boutique to style this casual chic summer look featuring the most darling little periwinkle cold shoulder crisscross top I scooped up from the boutique. Based in Midland, Texas (where they also have a storefront!), this online boutique is a one-stop shop for must-have fashion finds and the best selection of gifts too! What’s even better?! Le Marche is also offering my readers an exclusive discount code so you can stock up on some summer must-haves and a few gifts while you’re at it too!

As a small business owner myself, I love supporting small businesses based here in the lone star state! What’s even more special about Le Marche is that the boutique is run by a mother and daughter duo who love fashion – so sweet, y’all! Sharing a love for fashion with my mama and my sister has always been one of the things that’s connected us (my sister even doubles as my bloggy bog assistant!) and I love that these two women turned their fashion into a family business.
The wonderful thing about shopping boutiques is that you get to shop a collection that’s personally curated. Unlike department store shopping, you’re not overwhelmed by hundreds of choices (which can equal hours of online or in-store browsing), and as you get to know the boutique’s one-of-a-kind style, you can find the boutique(s) that are perfect for you’re own personal style. As a fashion blogger who lives and makes a living by sharing my unique style, having that personal and special touch is something that’s very important to me when I shop, and Le Marche boutique is a perfect example of just that. Feminine, colorful and approachable, Le Marche is totally in sync with this girl’s style, and I have a feeling if you follow me, you’ll love shopping their collection of fashion, jewelry, accessories and gifts too.
I always have about 10-12 cold shoulder tops circulating my spring and summer wardrobe, and I’m especially loving this little periwinkle number from Le Marche boutique that just joined my collection. There’s something about a little shoulder show that just works, which is probably the reason the trend has stuck around for so long. I love that the trend is flirty and fun enough to wear on a date but still feminine and graceful enough to meet the parents.
The cold shoulder number I’m styling today from Le Marche is especially fun because of the front cross over detail (which also has a closure, I must add, because that can get tricky sometimes with crossover tops!) and the addition of the slightly ballooned sleeves. The crossover detail takes the stress out of ever needing to tuck the top in and the ballooned detail make the sleeves effortlessly flowy for a casual, boho feel. I also love the bird print featured on the top, and since the birds are pink, we’re gonna go ahead and call them flamingos (one of my personal favorite animals!!)
To style the top, I opted for bright white denim shorts that were just long enough to allow me to wear my go-to pair of wedges with them. Anytime I can get away with a heel or wedge, I always go for it because my legs are on the shorter side, and I love the way wedges especially elongate my legs! While the pattern of the top is pretty enough to stand on its own. I wanted to add another bold detail with this amazing statement necklace that has just the right amount of tribal flair. I topped the look off with this $39 Panama hat that’s quickly become a go-to this summer season. I don’t normally wear hats, so when I find one that looks good (and feels!) on me, it’s definitely a wardrobe mainstay.
