I had a hard time classifying this look.  Some of the questions I asked myself:  Does the hat make me look like a pilgrim?  Or an Amish Indiana Jones?  Does the blouse make me look like a peasant?  Oh well, let’s not overthink this.  I had a ton of fun taking these pictures and the pieces of this outfit were all cheap finds–and I’m a sucker for a good bargain.  So let’s just say the theme of this look is adventure–I ventured into new territory with this look.  I never really saw myself as a hat person, but after exploring more and more fashion blogs, I see how easily they can pull a look together and completely transform it.  Here’s to more style adventures!

The 4 Days of July: Day 1

Happy July everyone! To kick off this month, I’ve decided to do a 4 days of July series with a different outfit each day to ring in the 4th of July. I know that we only typically do countdowns for Christmas, but I thought, “Why not Independence Day?” It’s a great day to celebrate being American with family and friends.

3 Cheers for the Red, White, & Blue

Hat: Mint by Goorin (on sale at Urban Outfitters)

Polka-Dot Top: Iz Byer California (thrifted)

Shorts: American Apparel (thrifted)

Sandals: Ros Hommerson
