Stripes and polka dots outfit

Happy Friday!

I just have a little outfit post for today. This was actually an outfit I wore a few weeks ago when it was ungodly hot out. I tried to be as cool and comfortable as possible, while wearing a new pair of shorts I bought.

Outfit details: sailor top from Bombshell Shocked, high-waisted shorts made by Sunny Threads via eBay, espadrilles from Mod Cloth, purse made by Milloo on Etsy.

My hair was being uncooperative in all the humidity, so I tried to get a little finger wave in my bangs since it was so flat. While it looked okay from the front...

...I laughed when I saw this next photo. Um, not exactly neat and tidy. Oh well, sometimes things don't work out as well as you planned! I'll just keep blaming the humidity.

While I tend to prefer smaller vintage purses, sometimes you just need a big ol' bag to tote everything around in. I love my red canvas Milloo bag, all the way from Greece! I ordered it over a year ago and it still looks great. And of course it goes without saying (though I'm saying it anyway): I love supporting small DIY businesses.

Accessories details: bamboo bangles and heart necklace were gifts, and the amazing 'Fakelite' ring, scarf and earrings were all from Etsy.

Anyway, it was a fun outfit to put together. I liked all the red accents, especially with the polka dots and striped trim on the blouse.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Cool! I love the top, and those bangles!

  2. You look great. I so enjoy seeing your outfit photo shoots. You look very cool and neat in the classic navy and red, not at all dull, as in same ol' sailor. I especially like the blouse. You done good, girl!

  3. You look lovely as always. Great outfit!


  4. Cutie cute cuteeeeeee! I love the pops of red (those shoes ROCK). White with red is even better.

  5. Totally adorable! You look ready to go sailing.

  6. So darn cute!!!! I'd love to see you one of these days!!

  7. Love it!!! :) I had to giggle at your comment about neat and tidy hair: during the summer mine never stays put! I just say I'm being authentic, since I dare say most ladies back in the day looked a bit messy from time to time too. ;) lol. Love your Fakelite! I've been collecting up a couple pieces lately--having suddenly fallen in love with chunky, plastic jewelry! :)

  8. Love your look adorable.Your hair looks just fine.And I absolutley love your shoes.x

  9. Very cute and love the red touches!

  10. Love this outfit, I especially like your blouse, that's given me a sewing idea if I ever get back to sewing!

    As for neat & tidy hair, mine never does neat & tidy, it just doesn't play that way, it's course, wayward, does what it want but holds a curl well, so I just go with the flow, it's the best way ;o)

  11. I LOVE this outfit! So fun!! And it looks like it kept you cool.

  12. Like everyone else, I adore this outfit. It's so perfectly 40's- the shoes, the shorts, the hair...everything. Now, if only someone could dress me just like this... :)


I love your comments, they make my day! :)
