Although summer is technically over, I still hold my feeling for the pink sweet feeling of the lovely sunshine , bubbly rose and the yummy ice-cream. I made this pink sweets print to remember the summer and also to cheer my self up whenever I feel bit down. You just need to dress cute sometimes and cute style can be cool as well.
I chose cotton batiste for this DIY design. This fabric is very lightweight and comfortable, it is semi-sheer and has beautiful illuminous look. They are popularly used for making linings or loungeries. However, with some fun and unique prints, they can be great for day wearing. I made a matching crop top and pants with this fabric and I love wearing them.
I believe the best way to style this DIY matching sets is to have fun with it. The funky sweets print of the fabric already stands out itself. I just need to mix and match the top and pants with some different clothes and accessories to create more statement looks 😛

Summer is always a magical season in New York. In spite of what the city has been through summer always brings back the most charming and vivid vibe at the hottest time of the year. Needless to say it is the most colorful and fun season for fashion outfits. I created this jungle print matching sets to celebrate the hot and mad midsummer in New York. Crop top and high waisted flare pants are a classic combo for a summer look. Although low waisted pants are trending this year, so what, you can never go wrong choosing a style that flatters your body.
The Summer Outfit: Crop Top & Pants Matching Set
Since the beginning of this summer, as midsummer got nearer, I had a desire to get into the jungle . Due to the restriction of traveling, I’ve not had a chance to go to any jungles but at the very least, I enjoyed the blooming flowers and leaves , dancing bees and birds in the Brooklyn parks. This jungle print matching set certainly cheered me up. “Make the most of what you’ve got” is always a decent way to stay fulfilled.
This outfit is made by jungle prints rayon. The fabric is soft, light and breathable, it is perfect for the hot summer. The animals and plants print on the fabric are a jungle landscape in itself.
