After enjoying the cook-out my family had for father's day yesterday, I decided to take a stroll in Baden's local park due to the surprisingly nice weather (one thing I have learned over the years is to always expect the opposite of what the weather man is calling for!). I also took this opportunity to do this outfit of the day post in light of my fun and breezy fathers day cook-out look. Let's see it:
So why am I digging this outfit so much? Well honestly when my mum showed me this while out shopping for a new top to go with my white teared skirt, I wasn't sure if I was digging the two toned tie up blouse however when I went in to the dressing room and tried on this I-N-C blouse on with my beloved long skirt I knew they were just a match made in heaven!
The perks of this duo is they are perfect for pretty much any summer occasion. I feel this top really adds a nice flare due to it's two toned qualities to an otherwise very basic piece. I love the skirt simply because of it's boho chic vibe, and to top it all off both these pieces are comfy as well as cool for that summer heat.
First up on my accessories list is my much adored Plaza Suite sunhat. I've always been a fan of hats because much like this one they always add a little something extra to an outfit!
Now for one of my all time favorite accessories: My heart shaped gold rim sunglasses from American Eagle. When I purchased these two summers ago, I was totally channelling my inner Lana Del Rey (love her!) and ever since I have to say these still remain one of my favorite summer accessories simply becasue they are super feminine, flirty, and fun!
Next is my new necklace from Fascino . The reason I paired this necklace with this outfit is because I wanted to add a little more edge to the classic boho look. I like this necklace because though it's definitely a statement piece, it's not too over the top.
Last but not least, my Coach clutch (see I told you I didn't totally despise Coach!). This was a gift from my grandmother from back when I first started college so I didn't have to lug around a huge purse along with my book-bag, text books, and camera equipment. Though when I was 18 I didn't heed her advice I have to say that nowadays this little bag comes in quite handy!
One Last Look:
Are you a fan of the boho chic look? Tell me about it!
