I took Caitlin's advice over at Greater Than Rubies, and went hunting for some celebrity style inspiration. This easy look is based on this pin showing Katherine Heigl wearing a similar combo. I switched out the flats for some metallic sandals and added a mixed metal bracelet. These jeans are my favorite right now - boyfriend jeans from Apt. 9 thrifted for under $3. The sandals are new from Payless (looks like sold out online, but might be available in stores) and are super comfy.
Alison at Get Your Pretty On recommended a fedora for easy summer style. I have never been a hat person, but I decided to give one a try. I purchased mine from JCPenney. It was on sale, plus I had a $10 off $10 coupon, so it cost me around $3.50. I have been wearing it so much, plus I really like that my forehead is shaded from the sun.
I thrifted these white LOFT pants recently, and I can't get over how much I am wearing them, too! Today I added a lightweight, pastel Mossimo plaid top that I also got from Goodwill, as well as the same bracelet and sandals.
I have been looking for a few more summer pieces, and maybe you can help me. What are your favorite tee shirts and tanks? I would love them to have a modest, crew neckline and hold up to being washed and worn. Also, I am trying to decide on a couple of summer trends, so tell me what you think - yay or nay - on the following:
- Soft pants (palazzo pants?)
- Denim vest (I've been looking for a denim jacket at Goodwill to repurpose, but no luck, yet.)
- Print shorts (I wonder if print pants would be better for me.)
I'm linking up!
