The Perfect Spring and Summer Off the Shoulder Top

  Off-the-shoulder is undoubtedly my current favorite trend. Whether it's fitted, flowy, or cropped, chances are I own it and wear it constantly.

  Of all the off-the-shoulder pieces I own and love, this seersucker 3/4 length sleeve top has to be my ultimate favorite. Surprisingly flattering and incredibly versatile, I can't wait to pair it with every single bright color! Unfortunately right now it's only warm enough to be paired with jeans, going into summer I'll be pairing it with allll the bright shorts, and of course some statement jewelry!

Shoes | Bag | Sunglasses
Off-the-shoulder tops create the perfect canvas for any statement necklace, due to the fact that the straight across neckline keeps the necklace from looking too busy with the top.

Top | Jeans
 The material of the top is seersucker, making this top perfect for the warmer seasons, and the stripe gives some interest to it, without it being overpowering.

  Off-subject from off-the-shoulder -- London is SUCH a beautiful city, I couldn't find anywhere in that city that wasn't photogenic!  The first photo was taken in Covent Garden, the second taken outside of Peggy Porschen Cakes {the building is pink!!}!

Below I've linked everything I'm wearing for you two look at for yourself {I highly recommend the wedges, they're some of the most comfortable shoes I have, and they're on sale for under $20}!

Love and Stay Preppy,
Eva

Why You NEED a Layover in Reykjavik + Iceland Travel Tips

I love to travel. I travel a lot and I have a long list of places I absolutely want to travel to. Of those places, never in a million years did I think Iceland would make the list. It's not that I had anything against Iceland, I heard that Iceland was gorgeous from some of my friends, but it never really struck me as an actual travel destination.

  Thanks to some reasonably priced airfare from IcelandAir {my new favorite airline} from MSP to London that included a 10 hour layover in Iceland, I found myself in Iceland for the first time.


  Faced with the dilemma of going to the Blue Lagoon {more on that later}, or heading into downtown Reykjavík, I decided that I needed to get acquainted with the city, and headed into Reykjavík.

Keeping it Short for Spring + Channeling my 90's Britney

  As I recently stated in an Instagram post {@Eva_Phan, for those of you wondering}, most of the time, my style is middle-age soccer mom summering in Nantucket, sometimes I dress like a basic 18 year old, and occasionally I dress like this: some combination of Britney Spears in the "... Baby One More Time" video, a preppy 90's throwback, and Cher from "Clueless."

Sperry 7 Seas Review!

  Sperry has quite the reputation for making and inventing the classic leather boat shoe, so somehow "athletic footwear" just doesn't come to my mind when I hear the brand come up.

  Yet, Sperry just released the 7 Seas, a new waterproof performance shoe that is supposedly their shoe of the summer.

  Skeptical that Sperry could actually make a performance shoe I liked, I gave it a try and...

Dreaming of Summer in Lilly Pulitzer {Replicating the Lilly Pulitzer Parfait Set}

  It's currently 28 degrees Fahrenheit in Minnesota. Yes, really. Yet, here I am trying to wear a two piece set. Typical.

  Despite my refusal to actually "dress for the weather" for once, as soon as I made this set I was in love with it, and knew that I just had to wear it.

 {Side note: I really need to start picking days with better forecasts to shoot. My hair was in perfect loose curls in the morning, really.}


  Here's what happened:
