Floral & Stripes




(Top: Hale Bob, Shorts: Lilly Pulitzer, Shoes: Steve Madden, Bag: Coach, Bracelet: made by Lauren)

Is there any better combination than stripes with florals? I think not. Especially when those stripes are baby blue and white seersucker shorts. This is quite possibly one of the easiest outfits I own. On those "throw on and go" type days, there's nothing better than a simple silky tank and shorts. It's polished without being too dressy, and is cool enough when the temperatures rise well into the 90's..yikes!

I've been enjoying the quiet routine of summer days, seeing friends and taking some time to dig into my big pile of books I promised myself I'd read. It's been so nice to flop down in the hammock with a glass of cool ice tea and read the afternoon away. Pure bliss. 

Do you have any favorite summer reads? 
I'm always looking for new favorites!

I just finished The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake and was really surprised.
It's a little heavy and moody though, maybe not the ideal summer book!
but very very good

Love the outfit, I'm a sucker for floral, but never tried it with stripes. I heard golden days on NPR could be a good read.

Scalloped edged shorts? Yes please! I enjoyed reading Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. It's a great summer read.

That sounds like a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. I have too many favourite reads to count, but I'm starting to read all of the Harry Potter books so those are an obvious favourite.
