Strapped In



Last week I had the awesome opportunity to ride in an IndyCar. Apparently I left the experience with a racing mentality and the need to wear tops with harness details. Just kidding, I've never been a race fan (although the driver of my car was absolutely adorable so maybe I'm missing out??) and I'm also a mediocre driver #CantParallelPark so who knows where my love for strappy tops comes from. When Tobi sent this Look At Me Now top, I knew it was meant to be. I mean, it IS race weekend here in Indy!


I took two sets of photos on this day. The first set was much better, set in a cute little park in the sunshine but I was having some wardrobe malfunctions and had to settle for these photos taken outside my office building a couple of hours later. Wah-wah! Regardless of how the photos turned out, I am in love with this top! Tobi has an amazing selection of items that are both trendy and unique – which is right up my alley!

With summer right around the corner, I definitely recommend looking into their swimsuits, sandals, sunglasses, tops and maxi skirts. There's definitely some gems in there! Unfortunately my fabulous shoes are from last year so they're no longer available but Tobi has a great selection of shoes so check that out STAT!

  1. I had no idea about the Indy Race car events. I love your new Tobi top and those sandals though. This outfit is feminine yet a little edgy. Great job on the pops of neon pink. I own a similar Love bracelet too, which I love. =)


    I would love for you to linkup with me today and every Thursday for my "Thursday Moda" linkup. A brand-new one is currently live, below. Thanks.

  6. I love Tobi! They have such cute clothes and so many to choose from! I also am loving your "love" gold bracelet- adorable! And I totally feel you with the photos not going well and needing to re-shoot. That has happened so many times shooting my fashion photos!
