Gingham Shorts: J.Crew (buy here) (here in black on sale) (other cute options here and here in ton of colors for under $14)

Sandals: Target (buy here – super comfy) (here by Dolce Vita 50% now)

Necklace: Banana Republic outlet

Hope all of you have been enjoying your weekend! It has been a beautiful but hot one here. And when I say hot I mean 88-90 degrees…which is probably not very hot to those of you who live in FL, TX, AZ etc. I don’t know how y’all can handle it. 

I’m liking this color combo…and I have a feeling you’ll be seeing this color combo again… real soon, just work appropriate. 

Thank you for stopping by!

    I really like the color combo too! Green and pink with a touch of blue, fab! I have a fedora hat but it has a black band on it. I wonder if I could buy some different colored ribbons to accessorize it?PS…I'm trying to make a shopping decision, I blogged about it. Help a girl out? Thanks!

    I love the pattern on the shorts! I get what you are saying about the heat. Here, in Florida, it's in the 90s plus the humidity ugh!

    Love that whole outfit. Very cute for summer! Is that a chain necklace? I saw those in a store this past weekend but couldn't decide if I liked the look or not. Looks cute on you though! =)

      Thank you 🙂 Yes, it's a chain necklace. First time I saw it I didn't get it but second time hubby said I should get it, so I did 🙂
