Since I'm thisclose to being on holiday (I so wish I were British) and because I sort of want to indirectly flip the bird to my office for screwing me over the Friday before a holiday, I picked a pretty vacation-y casual Friday outfit for today (hello stripes & boat shoes). I also went for a summery color palette by combining my favorite color of all time, aqua, with my favorite trendy color of the year, orange. I also took some photos of the amazing anniversary gift my hubby gave me this year - check it out below! PS - sorry for the iphone snaps today, I didn't have time for the good camera routine (or any editing, obviously).
Tommy Hilfiger striped silk cami (similar with sequins!)
Gap outlet orange cardigan (similar)
J. Crew teal chain link necklace (similar in gold - could DIY this into another color?)
American Eagle jeans (old)
Sperry white boat shoes (similar)
J. Crew aqua rhinestone bracelet
Target aqua wrap watch ($10, recent, but couldn't find it online)
H&M mint, cream, peach beaded metal ring bracelet set (recent)
LOFT clear lucite with green top sunglasses (on sale for $15 right now!)
And... my new baby!
Kate Spade Essex Scout bag in "Carribbean"
The best part about this gift is that I had picked it out as something I was going to buy for myself with a little bonus check I got at work, so I showed my husband all like "hey, look what I'm going to splurge on because I'm so awesome at work lately!" He was really annoyed to have to tell me not to get it because he had already picked out the exact same bag to get me for our anniversary! Even cuter is that he said he knew he wanted to get me a Kate Spade leather bag because in traditional wedding gift themes, year 3 is leather, so he went into my closet to see if I had any bags in my favorite color; I didn't, so he went through all of the bags on the Kate Spade website to find one in this color. There were about 4 or 5, but he picked this one, which I obviously loved since I was going to buy it without even knowing it was something he was considering! It worked out even better because he hadn't bought it yet, and I had just gotten an email that the site was doing a major sale for 2 days only, so he got it for way cheaper than retail! Awesome!
What are your plans this holiday weekend? I will be heading to Mexico on Monday, but I'm planning on lining up a few posts for while I'm gone (and I'm going to try to update with some lovely beach photos while I'm away!). I hope you have a nice, long, relaxing weekend!
