Pretty Picnic

It's the weekend!!!

Wow, I cannot believe the summer is flying by and in a few days it will be August. It is such a short season!!! On the upside however, I will be going on vacation very soon so I have been getting ready for that, making my last few purchases. One new item I got was a camera. Knowing my photographer was not going to be around I wanted to start taking some shots on my own. No comparison to the work he does, not by a long shot. I have a lot to learn and I think I just might be in over my head but I'll get there. I have pretty much kept things only about the clothes but I figured if I am going to continue on with this venture then it's time to start opening myself up so, coming up on two years now, that will be one of things to look for. I want my followers to be able to relate to me not just what I am wearing. All suggestions gratefully accepted.

Today I kept it pretty simple, just wearing shorts and a tee but, I wanted to share my new picnic basket and blanket that I got from Joss & Main. I have wanted these items for awhile now and the price was right. I love spending the afternoon relaxing in the park and just taking in what's going on around me. Hope you enjoy!!! Have a great weekend everyone. Shop links below:

Shoulder Exposer

Damn Daniel….back at it again with the white vans…….(but seriously)

I have been wearing the classic slip-on with just about everything this summer. From shorts, dresses, and maxi skirts as you saw on the blog yesterday.

On hot days like today it is easiest to wake up and throw on a mini dress. As I’m sure you know off-of-the shoulder pieces are everywhere these days and a summer must-have.

If I was to pick out all of my favorite off of the shoulder dresses this season you would be scrolling for hours. I decided to stick to similar tones and easy day-to-day styles.

When I was shooting looks the ice cream man drove by and I had this brilliant idea that I needed to get something and use it in my photos. If you are wondering why I am barely smiling…..it is because out of all of the options I chose the blue and green sour popsicle and it completely turned my mouth colors…..so safe to say I will not be doing that again. Thank god it was one of my last looks.

Today I am mixing on trend pieces in an unexpected way. I purchased this skirt from Asos at the beginning of the summer with the feeling it was going to sell out (it did) …everything always goes super fast on that site. It is very unique with tiered ruffles and frayed hems.

I am usually such a ‘heel’ girl over flats but I have been trying to shoot more looks where I dress down apparel and make it more practical to wear during the day. With that being said, I decided to pair today’s main piece with a lightweight sleeveless knit, fedora, and classic slip-on sneakers. The allover stripes print gives the look character…making it a little polished yet also a little undone.

Below, find the links to today’s outfit. I have also incorporated similar items, cute summer tanks, and adorable alternative sneaker options that can be paired with a white skirt like this one. All items can be mixed and matched! (I am really loving the metallic sneaker and crotchet crop top combo)

XOXO,

JCrew: Jacket, Tee, Jeans, Vans (for J.Crew)| Pouch: Banana Republic 

This cinched swing jacket is a perfect layering piece for the season. The rubber printed stripes on the sleeves give it a rainy day vibe, however this jacket is great for any tricky weather spring brings with it. Today my Current Elliot oversized denim jacket saves me yet AGAIN underneath for some extra warmth. These slip-on lilac Vans pick up some of the color from the striped linen baseball tee and add a very laidback look.
