Ikat

This is probably my favorite outfit from Florida - the shorts, top, and turquoise bracelet were all birthday gifts, and they are all so perfect together.

It's sad to be home back in the low 60°s - I already miss wearing shorts! I feel like this is pretty much going to be my summer uniform though - I want to pair this white shirt with everything in my closet.

P.S. Why must they force me to use this new blogger? Why? Nothing was wrong with it before, however I'm having several issues right now...

  4. those shorts are just perfect, and i LOVE having simple blouses like that in my closet, because they really do go with everything! this outfit really makes me wish it was back in the 80's here like normal instead of rainy and in the 50's!

  5. Oh no, I can't seem to pin your outfit photos anymore...did you change your Flickr settings? I thought this was a great summery outfit, the length and width of the shorts is perfect.

  10. This is such a gorgeous outfit! I jut returned from Florida as well and I'm so missing shorts, tank tops, and endless days at the beach. Wish the weather would get warmer here in NY!

  15. You look marvelous !!
    this is a great outfit :)
    I love that shirt.... and i hate the new blogger layout.
    I am lost.

  16. Perfection. I love the idea of shorts with button-downs, but don't love the idea of tucking. The knotted blouse is just perfect. I love this whole look on you and now will probably have to buy those shorts.

  17. I dislike the new blogger as well. I don't know where anything is! Seriously. However, I'll probably do the tutorial thing and figure it out.
    I love the top with those shorts. Very chic.

  18. I love the outfit! But my favorite thing about this look is your jewelry! I love it!!

    XoXo,

  19. I HATE new blogger, I switched back to the old one, so until they totally force me to switch I'm going to use the old one. The new dashboard is so ugly. Ugh. Anyways, this outfit is adorable, I love it. I'm also super envious of your spike bracelet, I want one so bad!

  21. I actually reverted back to old Blogger because I can't stand change sometimes. There's a button on the top right corner that'll allow you to go back. Don't know if this is temp until old blogger goes away completely, but I am holding on!

  22. Love the shorts! You look lovely. I've been doing some blog development with the new blogger layout and I gotta admit I do not really like it. Seems like it's not a bad place to start but they have a LOT that needs to be fixed.

  23. I love your casual beach chic!! All those bracelets in your stack are fabulous...especially the spikes!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh gosh those shorts are so cute on you! What lovely things to receive for your birthday. And I seriously love all of those bracelets... every single one. The tiny shells, the neat gem bracelet, and that spikey one. Too cool.

    PS) New blogger is evil indeed. It's weird. No me gusta.

    PPS) How did you know I was feeling spaghetti? Can you feel the spaghetti, too? Can you?~ We are very rare, you know-- not many people are spaghetti feelers. We are like Jedi. Rare and powerful. Yes.

  25. This is such a pretty, effortless look...the shorts look awesome on you!

  26. These are my favorite shorts of yours :) And is that a new agate cuff or am I just oblivious? It says it came from the cavernous jewelry box, so it might be semi-new, haha. What an amazingly perfect Floridian look. Ugh. Get off my screen. The puddles here are the size of small lakes right now.

  27. I love those shorts and all your bracelets! I actually looked up that bracelet yesterday on ebay but was afraid the of the quality. Looks good from your pictures, though! I'm getting it!

  28. Gorgeous and i love how it matches nicely with the blue stone cuff!

  33. I dislike the new blogger as well! I finally had figured out a system to my blogging and now I can't do many of the things I used to be able to. Definitely not a fan.
    Love your shorts and top! Looks so summery!

  34. Gorgeous, lovely! Those shorts are adorable. I've never tried a printed pair, but you've definitely piqued my interest. I also think that might be the perfect summer white shirt.

  36. Yea, our weather is crap compared to Florida's bright sunny skies although their summers are wicked hot so I at least we dont have to deal with that. Enough weather talk, you are rocking this outfit. Its very simple but still packs a punch with the cool patterned shorts.

  37. Ooh, I love this! Great blouse & super cute shorts. Love the Ikat pattern!
