I got a little taste of what taking outfit photos this summer is going to be like when Briley and I went out to shoot these. It was hoooot, girlfriend. Hence my bangs look all a mess. It was a really, really cold winter here in Texas, but there are no signs that it's not going to be an equally hot summer. I guess that means more snow cones and pool time!

Is it weird that I didn't notice this outfit mixes patterns until I compared it to some of its predecessors? I've actually worn this outfit several times before the 30x30 because red, white, and blue is such a no-brainer combination in my closet. Who knew I was also rocking stars dots and stripes? (Okay, obviously everyone who saw me except me.) Does accidental patriotism still count?

Dago and I are off to see 1/3 of his BFFdom get hitched tomorrow in San Antonio. After much consideration, I've decided to wear my Valentine's outfit again (minus the heart headband, plus a cute mint clutch I picked up #colorblocking) because I loved it so much and it deserves as much appreciation as it can get. I bought that dress for such a good price and I want to show off my bargain skills almost as much as I want to show off its bright color and pretty detailing.

Do you have any big plans for this weekend?

  1. I think this is one of my favorites from your 30x30 challenge! So darling :)

  2. have fun at the wedding! you're almost done with the 30x30!



  3. I'm super into the stripes and polka dots. I haven't been pattern mixing a ton lately, mostly because I think I don't fit in the clothes I really liked doing that with last summer, but it's a good luck. I actually don't think this outfit it too fourth of july or anything because you've got a denim jacket that doesn't fully recognize as blue because it's denim, a navy skirt, and lighter red stripes. I love how the shade of these pieces makes that red, white, and blue thing really fresh.


  4. Every time you mix patterns, you rock it girl! Loving the navy polka dot skirt. I need to get me one of those.

  5. This look is darling, i love the stripes and the polka dots!
