All Summer Long

What I'm wearing:
*Zara Striped Knit Dress
*Loehmann's Turquoise Beaded Necklace
*Sperry Top-sider "Montauk" Slip-ons in Platinum
*Gucci Monogram Scarf Tote
*Forever 21 Striped Ribbon Fedora

Ok, so I'm the last person I thought would ever wear a hat in public. I'm not sure what is wrong with the circumference of my head, but most hats don't fit me right and I am never comfortable in them. I did find this straw hat from Forever 21, and decided that I would try out this whole hat thing. Not sure if I'm completely sold on it, but at least it wasn't a big investment. Same with this striped dress, I didn't realize it was on sale when I got to the register, but it rang up for only $20 at Zara! Makes me kind of wish I picked up the navy striped version as well. It's dangerous when you have so many stores on the way home from work. But I'm trying to stay away from buying multiples of items, I do have a lot of navy/white striped items so I thought I'd branch out into the red. This outfit is completely matchy-matchy and overly preppy, but I love it. In an over the top Margot Tenenbaum sort of way. Is it too much red? I can't decide. Red has never been my color but it's slowly growing on me.


  1. I have trouble finding hats that fit too but I discovered the greatness of men's hats. They fit my big noggin. H&M and Forever 21 have some great men's hats.

  2. This is adorable! The hat is a perfect compliment to the dress! You look great and red. Oh, and I finally was able to track down the pink and orange striped dress from Zara that you have had me lusting after...I love it!

  3. This is super cute. Love the pop of the blue necklace and I'm definitely loving the shoes and hat.

  4. I do love the hat, you sold me on it!!

  5. I like this dress. I just noticed it was on sale online and was wanting to go by and check out if the store had it, but I sometimes have trouble finding things in my size there. Anyhow, it looks cute on your and I'm super jealous. Can't wait to see you next weekend!!!!!!

  6. cute look
    i have a super small head so hats usually aren't an option for me either
    you are working this one pretty well i might add
    love the shoes

  7. Can you do a close up of your bracelet (and where you got it)? I've been searching for something similar, but haven't found a good quality, or cute one yet. Thank you!

  8. I think you look smashing in a hat! I bought a similar one at Forever 21 and love it as a cheap trendy piece. I love the scarf you tied on your purse!!

  9. KDot, I will have to check out mens' hats! Great idea.

    Yay I am so glad you found it! I love that dress.

    I'm excited toooo!!

    This bracelet is just the classic David Yurman cable bracelet. You can see a better pic in the post below:
