White Out

7.01.2012


Mango embellished tee, 
Thrifted patterned shorts (last seen here), 
Mossimo crossbody bag,
White O-clock watch,  
F21 braided platform sandals (similar here). 

When it's blazing hot outside there's not a lot Lauren and I feel like wearing apart from our bathing suits but, since walking around in a bikini would be pretty weird, Lauren instead settled for this all white ensemble to keep cool. To punch up her look she grabbed her new tribal print satchel... and seriously, I'm drooling over this bag. First of all it looks strikingly like the ubiquitous PS1 on sale here. Second of all, it isn't and you can get your hands on one here and feel pretty good about it.

As mentioned previously, I recently moved to new digs and the past few weeks have been exhausting as I've been trying to pull everything together. There are still odds and ends to do around the apartment and my backyard needs some love as well, so I decided to kill two birds in one stone and take a ten day staycation. My main plans? Sun + Pool. Those fit in perfectly with our daily gravitation to bikinis.

  5. Lauren looks gorgeous and I loooove the bag! I totally know what you mean, It has been so hot the past two days here in Austria, and it's supposed to stay that way all of next week, that dressing for going out or even only grocery shopping is becoming more and more of a challenge. I'm not complaining though! ;)
