Today's Everyday Fashion: Ocean Breeze













































This is me on Saturday morning. Fuzzy-headed and in a comfy outfit to run a couple errands. This outfit would also look great with mint skinny jeans or a mint skirt, and some nude pumps for a dressier occasion like work. I recommend my version when you have an active day, are half-asleep (my excuse) and/or are battling the heat! :-) How would you wear these ocean colors together?

Sweater: Gap, old (similarsimilar)
Shorts: Candie's c/o Kohl's, $25
Necklace: H&M, $14 (similar, or search "J.Crew bubble necklace" on eBay)
Shoes: Diba/Nordstrom Rack, $40 (similar, similar)
Purse: Calvin Klein/TJ Maxx, $120 (similar)


























1. Charlotte Russe shorts, $22.99
2. Urban Outfitters shorts, $49

  2. Ooooh, I love the periwinkle blue and mint together!  I never would've thought to pair those two together, but it looks so good!

  19. ohhh niiice I love this!! Can you believe that I've never actually owned shorts?  Except for working out?!  I've been needing to buy some cuz it's slooooowly getting warm! :P  But I'm so glad you posted this because I love the delicate and fun look to this color.  I'll def. check out somewhere like Kohls! And I would wear this outfit with a knee-length flowy skirt, plus the Aldo ivory lace wedges I wore for my own wedding.  Great job!

  26. I have a cardigan just like the inspiration photo. I love the color of the necklace on this color top, but would never have thought to do that! Thanks x

  27. So cute! Love the color combination!!

  28. So pretty!  I loved this inspiration photo when I saw it in the J Crew catalog, but I might like your more casual version even better - it's so summery and easy to wear and I love it with the neutral accessories!  I think pairing the periwinkle and mint with white accessories would also be really pretty!  Anything summery that looks like the ocean would be good I think  :)

  35. I totally LOVED this photo from J Crew too! I have the mint skinnies from Target. They stretched out so much that I think I will cut them into shorts and create this AWESOME look you have put together. Now to find the periwinkle shirt!!!!

    Thanks J - again (as always) a great job!!!!!
