Striped eyelet

I love the idea of showing a little skin through the cutouts of the eyelet lace, and decided to just run with the stripes by paring the top with the striped shorts then throwing on the striped hat, for good measure, and to keep the sun off my face.

This is what I wore to a picnic, because of course I wear white, and bold costume jewelry to picnics.

  4. Well what else would one wear to a picnic? I love every piece in this outfit. The cuff is great, love the stripes on the shorts, the hat is glamorous and I am a huge fan of eyelet! Great gold on the sandals as well!

  5. Wow, thats a fancy picnic ! You look so pretty :)
    I can imagine its not that hot there so you can actually relax and have a great day outdoors.

  6. Perfect top for summer and I love the shorts you wore with it!

  8. That top is so pretty and summery, and I love the subtle stripes! In fact I love all the stripes you've got going on here--they all work together without it being a stripe overload (if there is such a thing).

  9. Wow! Amazing shorts! i love them! Whole outfit looks great :) So summery.

  14. Beautiful look, love your bracelet

  15. I can't imagine why you wouldn't wear white and bold costume jewelry to a picnic - it's who you are :) Besides, there's something about a summer picnic that just calls for pretty white blouses and oversized sun hats, so as far as I'm concerned, you absolutely nailed it with this look, practicality be damned. I mean really, that's why they invented Tide pens ;)

  16. Love how this shows a peak of skin without being revealing. Perfect for this time of year too. Looks great with your stripes!

  17. I just love the eyelet and stripes pairing! I would totally wear that to a picnic!

  18. Super chic outfit hun!!!!

  19. What a cute outfit! I recently bought striped shorts similar to yours and once the weather warms up (it's still pretty cold here in Norway, totally out of season) I'll add a lace blouse and floppy hat. Thanks for the inspiration! PS: And you are not the only one who's been going crazy in the shops lately. I can't buy anything more until Christmas!
