Today's Everyday Fashion: Guest Post


This is a guest post while J is away. Be sure to check out Teresa's blog, Delightfully Darling!

I was inspired by the color palette and simplicity of this Gap 2011 Summer outfit and knew that I had a few pieces that just may do the trick. I live in a very warm climate (Tampa, Florida) so it’s very important to stay cool during these hot summer months (pants are not an option most days). While I don’t have a top quite like this Gap version, I knew I could improvise! I added this extremely lightweight tissue fabric scarf to complete the look and give a simple tank and shorts outfit something special. The scarf ties in perfectly with the color pallet and adds visual interest. While it’s not an exact match to my inspiration photo, it goes to show that inspiration photos can be a starting point for creating looks that you may not have known you already had in your closet.

Scarf: TJ Maxx
Tank: Miley Cyrus for Walmart
Shorts: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Hat: Target
Wedges: Ann Taylor, thrifted
