The floppy hat

I love these scalloped shorts, and my persistence at making every outfit feel nautical. I just love being by the water. (Which if you can't really tell, is in the background.)
After seeing big floppy straw hats everywhere, I had to buy one. I saw a cute, more expensive one with a black band that I loved, so I got the cheap version from target and threw on my own black ribbon.

  11. The picture of you on the bench is gorgeous, and I continue to be jealous of your scalloped shorts.

    I just might steal your idea, and add a ribbon to my (same) floppy hat from target.

  29. You have convinced me of my need for a big floppy hat, that I can pull dramatically over one eye when I'm feeling nautically glamorous, or completely hide behind when I run into someone I don't want to talk to. I like the addition of the black ribbon, too, it really sets it off.

  30. Wow I'm in love with your hat, you look as a princess. And your shors are so cool!!

  34. You seriously have the best outfits ever. All the time. Forever. I love this. Scalloped shorts have been on my wishlist for years, and I've still never managed to pick up a pair. So sad. You look so good in coral pink tones, too, it's unbelievable!

    Hope you're enjoying your long weekend!

  38. This outfit is a 10 in so many ways. The floppy is something that I've been looking for and now I'll have to check out target. Also ever since I saw those shorts in the H&M catalog I've been in search for them. Must have them. So cute!
