Coffee + Crochet

4.02.2012


Navy raincoat from Varga, Santa Monica, 
Vintage crochet tank (similar style here),
Earnest Sewn jeans,
Thrifted straw tote with bamboo handles (similar look here), 
Michael Kors platform fringe sandals.

One of the trends that I'm really excited about for Spring is the return of crochet clothing. From swimsuits, to dresses, to tanks like the one I'm wearing here, nothing says warm weather fun quite like a breezy crochet knit.

Unfortunately, the first day I decided to break out this tank the sky was dreary and grey... but I didn't let that stop me from wearing it out with some fun platforms and a straw tote, albeit with a warm raincoat covering it all for a little added protection from the elements.

Sure, we were only heading out for coffee at our local haunt Marlow & Sons, but who says I can't look like I'm ready for the beach?

  11. haha that's the spirit! don't let the crummy weather get you down. I love the whole crochet thing too- a year ago I saw a bathing suit like that and never bought it and have been kicking myself ever since. It's just so girly and summery, how can you say no? Very cute outfit!

  15. Loving the open-knit look and how versatile it is (for those dreary days - which we get a lot of here in Seattle). Your nails and tote really make the outfit look spring-spot-on. Love!

    1. The nailcolor is just a random white I found in the sale bin at a drugstore! It might be my new Spring favorite though. Thanks for following! xL
