White Skirt Two Ways

A white skirt is a great investment for your summer wardrobe. It can easily cross over from dressy to casual depending how you accessorize and is comfortable in the hottest weather. These two looks are not very different, but the pieces that make up the whole are great supplements to the looks I already featured this week. All of these looks were achieved with 6 tops and 3 bottoms (This originally said 6 bottoms. That was a typo.) that could easily be mixed and matched to vary your vacation look while not over packing. These looks were based on the outfits I wore on my week-long vacation in Charleston, SC. So what do you think? How did I do? Do you have an even better process for packing?

Pink Shorts Two Ways

If you are like me, your beachwear is a sea of blues and whites. To break that up I packed these pink shorts to provide a little pop of color and maintain the preppy aesthetic I was going for. Here they are styled two ways! What do you think?

White Jeans Two Ways

I’m back from vacation. If you couldn’t tell from the posts last week, I was in Charleston, SC. The past 9 days were spent putting my feet in the surf, reading really good books (go buy Gone Girl this second), dancing with a naked baby (my boyfriends’ nephew) and having long conversations while eating amazing food. It’s always a little hard to come back to reality after vacation, but I found myself homesick for my little apartment.

Anywho, let’s get on to what I wore. Although I am a hot mess when it comes to packing (at least 4-5 items were not even worn), I did get a lot of use out of these white jeans. These are the two looks I came up with. One involving stripes (of course) and one white on white with a floral print scarf. I felt dressy yet laid-back in both outfits.
