Chevron Striped


After putting this outfit together, I realized that the last time I wore this blouse (here), I also paired it with a black & white skirt.  There's just something about this cheery color contrasted against a graphic print that feels right to me...and it was the perfect laid-back combination for a family trip to explore a new park and watch the sunset.

My son hijacked this shot J



What I'm wearing:
J. Crew blouse (here), Vintage skirt (via Etsy - similar here), Bracelets: Tasha (similar), Sonoma (similar) & Forever 21 (similar), Target fedora (here), sunnies & sandals (here), Lips: L'Oreal Target Red

It took all my willpower not to buy this same fedora at Target the other day. I love me some yellow, but I figure I don't necessarily need more than one fedora. However, the striped yellow floppy hat I saw may have to be mine...

This is SO cute! I love how you matched your blouse to your fedora--it's really fun. Yesterday I actually wore a red cardi with my red handbag (reminds me of what you did here!)
