a little nautical?
I was going to have an actual post to type up
along with the usual outfit photos but...
I shot these first photos in the park.
I was trying something different with this outfit...out of my norm...
not sure if I liked the whole look very much tho. 
my thought process prob went something like this...
'oh I have navy shorts! I'm gonna go nautical with this!!'
yes...I think I got that excited!
maybe I wasn't diggin' the high waisted shorts?
or maybe that the combo of the shirt and shorts don't  really go together?
not quite sure... 
the shirt...I love!
shorts: F21 // shoes: Old Navy
necklace: Thorn & Wynn

so when we got home...I changed into something I felt more comfortable in lol.
shorts: Buckle // shoes: Old Navy

there is no harm in trying something!
oh well...guess nautical is not my thing haha!
However...this shirt is very comfy!

  1. Yes - that has definitely happened to me. BUT I love that look - those shorts look great on you! and I want that shirt - so cute!

  2. I love Franchescas! Seriously my favorite store! That shirt is great both ways.

  3. Just found your blog and love it :) Where do you get those cute head wraps? I saw your post about them at Forever and A day - and am kinda addicted, but might be too nervous to wear them!

  4. yes, the jean shorts work better!!! i love the shirt! so cute!!

  5. That happens to me all of the time, I get this image in my head of how things will look together... rarely works out lol.

    I love the shirt, Francesca's is amazing, they just opened a small boutique in our mall, dangerous for me!

  6. Yep I have gotten pretty excited about an outfit myself and then when I go to actaully put it fails lol! Oh well, it happens to us all, but honestly, I don't think that outfit looks bad at all. Maybe add a belt to it...that is what I do if I feel something hits a little high on the waist or I don't tuck it in. Other than that, you look great in anything!
    Have a great day!

  7. i do the same thing all the time! you look great either way though.

  8. Love both looks. The shirt is very cute. Your arms are so cut! Love.

  9. i looove your second outfit. and yes. had a time like this. i won't share the link out of embarrassment.

    pS> the floral jeans come about 2 sizes too small... so just so you know :) also... very VERY sheer :) haha

  10. Love the shirt - and it looks great with the jean shorts

  11. you look stunning. those shorts are fab on you xx


I love to hear whats on your mind! I read every comment and it makes my day!!
