There are so many things I love summer but I was getting a little sad about putting my chambray shirts on hold in the warmer weather. I should have known there would be a solution to my sadness and it showed up in this adorable crop top. My only wish is that it fit a little better and that's mostly my fault because I wanted it to be a little longer than the smaller sized allowed. I'm going to be a little more daring this summer and the key there is "a little." So pairing this tied-up chambray with a high-waisted full skirt was the perfect way to dip my toe into this trend.

I wish I could say after starting Tone It up about two months ago that I am racing to show off my body in crop tops and short shorts this summer. While I am proud to say I have lost five pounds since the start, I still feel like there is so much more to do. I still see where I can improve. I want my arms to have more definition and my waistline to slim down. But I'm trying to embrace myself and my healthier lifestyle and remember that I am working hard to get myself fit and strong and healthy. And no matter how I think I look I will be spending every summer weekend outdoors and at the beach.
