Royal Blue, Stripes & Polka Dots Too!

August 26, 2014

Happy Tuesday!

So, it's a cheesy title I know :) But don't you just love when you can make up a rhyme about your outfit!? haha! So as you guessed by my amazing rhyming skills, today I bring to you a little pattern play, mixing stripes and polka dots. I always love mixing patterns & in my opinion it's totally appropriate when the colors work well together. 

The striped cross-body bag I'm wearing below is a new purchase I made at the beach from Forever 21. I was looking for a medium sized cross body bag for the Kenny Chesney concert to carry around all day and when I saw this bag I knew it would be PERFECT! It's roomy enough to hold more than the essentials (I mean I even was able to fit my mini makeup brushes in it!) but also small enough where it's not super bulky to carry around all day. Unfortunately I couldn't find it online :( but definitely check your local store! I paired this bag with my classic polka dot shorts from Old Navy that I've loved wearing this summer (unfortunately these are no longer available online). Then I topped it off with a pop of royal blue with this cute top from TJ Maxx! Here's how my OOTD turned out....
