fête


zara blouse, j. crew shorts, tory burch shopper (stolen from sally), michael kors heels,
j. crew necklace, kenneth jay lane ring, hats both stolen from mommy's closet

Hello, loves! I wore this outfit to a graduation luncheon recently. When I saw these shorts, I instantly fell in love with the print - they were one of a few left at the J. Crew outlet store (a must go if you've never been - these shorts were $23!) and luckily the fit was perfect, too!

Now you may be wondering "what's with the two hats?" (or, frankly, why any hat at all?!) Well, my Momma suggested a hat to "top off my look" (see what I did there?), so I indulged her with not one but two! I ended up donning a chapeau (mother knows best!) and I'll leave it up to you guys to guess which one.

Tell me, which way do you like it best?? Hat or no hat? Orange or beige?
(the beige hat is actually metallic-y in person - that
may sway some of you in one direction or another ;) )

  10. Great outfit! I love your ring and your hats!
    Both hats look great. I like the beige one best, but I think that the orange one goes better with this outfit.

  36. When I saw this post, I squeed with delight when I saw the orange hat. And then I read it was from Mom's Closet, natch! Not that you all don't have cute stuff of your own, too - that blouse is classic and sexy and bohemian, all at the same time.

  40. Great look. Truly love those shorts. I must say although I love the red hat I am leaning towards the neutral color one cause it really lets the shorts pop!
    And yes, your mother is right definitely a hat!

  46. A few monthes ago I really hated an orange color.It was everywhere and I could not stand it. I thought that all people was crazy. And one day (suddenly) I fell in love with it. So now I'm happy that your hat is orange (it's great). And, of course, I love your shorts (flowers <3)
