I stumbled across this cool Ikat top at World Market- of all places!
Sometimes I like to poke around there to find cool wrapping paper, cards and such- but then I saw this fun top and snapped it up thinking it would be a great swim suit cover up!
Needless to say, for the 3 weeks I was in Kansas (in the 100 degree heat) I never wore it, but actually, here in the Pacific Northwest, one does need a LONG SLEEVED cover up! Go figure!
Today I decided to try it a new way- as a tunic. Layered over my white jeans, I simply belted the top, (to give it a little more shape) added cute necklace and sandals and off we went to the mall to do back to school shopping.
I was so comfy- and will definitely be wearing this again!
I am wearing such a simple outfit today (khaki and black) that I almost didn’t post it- but I wanted to show that black and tan doesn’t have to be boring, especially when paired with a gorgeous necklace. This pendant, with it’s vibrant green color, draws the eye immediately to it.
It is from one of my absolute favorite jewelry lines, Stella and Dot*, which my friend Carrie happens to represent.
Every girl needs a statement necklace- and I think this is a perfect addition to this otherwise plain outfit.
Paired with my cargos and a black tank and a black cardigan, it makes for a stylish, yet very easy outfit.
