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.

This is just such a lovely outfit. Amazing soft colors, gorgeous textures and it looks perfect on your figure. I love everything you wear, but this is just extraordinary. Hope you had a nice day by the water - I'm certainly jealous!

Rachel said...

Love the layered, scalloped shorts! It's such a cute and pretty detail. :D

Louise said...

Best outfit of the year from you, in my humble opinion! Your figure looks stunning, the colors are brilliant, and it's just so YOU.

What a feminine and elegant outfit- I think I will need to get a pair of those shorts and the floppy hat (it looks so expensive with the black ribbon!)

Closet Fashionista said...

Looove this! And so smart getting the cheaper one and just adding a ribbon, hehe :D

Eli said...

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.

Kavery said...

Such a lovely mix of ladylike and summery. Are these the hard-won shorts from H&M?

Marie said...

These shorts look lovely on you and you did a good DIY job with the hat.:D

Julie said...

I am in love with this outfit! You look great!

Vanessa said...

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.

collagevintage said...

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

Ashley said...

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!

That is such a beautiful hat and you wear it well. I like that picture of you sitting in the bench.
You are bad influence, now I want a hat like that!

Fashion Therapist said...

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!

Sarah Dee said...

Too funny! I just bought a big floppy hat too! I love that staying safe in the sun is becoming fashionable!

Jealous - I love the floppy hat, but w/my hair this short, it's not a good look.
