Shirt: Thakoon for Target
Jeans: Rich & Skinny (Nordstrom)
Shoes: Mossimo Supply Co. (Target)
Necklace: Sloan Boutique, Portland
This outfit was a perfect ending to my holiday weekend. It was comfortable enough for yet another lazy day with just the right amount of Americana style to make me wish I wore it yesterday. I love stripes of all shapes, sizes and colors, and while I tend to wear them in mostly black and white, navy feels so much fresher.
Like most of my weekend looks, this one started with my boyfriend jeans. Temperatures are much cooler than I would like considering its JULY! Throwing on my new favorite pair of shorts was, sadly, out of the question, so I grabbed the next best thing. When I picked up these adorable shoes on a recent trip to Target I immediately knew that I wanted to wear them with this shirt. With all those stripes, I kept it simple with accessories, wearing only a gold wishbone necklace. This necklace draws a fair share of odd glances and questions like “is that a...wishbone?” Why yes, it is! What can I say? As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. There is something irresistible to me about having a wish around my next…just in case.
And, while I did consider breaking it and wishing that the weekend wouldn't end, I kind of want to keep that spare wish hanging around my neck for a little while longer.
