Que Bella – Catching up…

Here are some recent OOTDs.

Loving the Perfect Linen shirts from J Crew. I am taking a 6 in all of them even though my normal size in the perfect shirts is an 8. The Summerweight Bermuda Shorts are my all-time favorite shorts. With the newer styles I take a size 8. The Look Through Wedges had an accident the day I wore these. A piece of wood chipped off! From the front! I think if I dirty that spot up a little it will blend in with the rest of the shoe. This was only the second time to wear them so I am quite disappointed.

Shirt: J Crew Perfect Linen Shirt in Navy, 6
Shorts: J Crew Summerweight Bermuda Shorts (’08) (similar), 6

Looking at this picture I think the tee might be the crewneck not v-neck. Either way it is the Vintage Cotton Tee which are another yearly staple for me. The Apothecary skirt has been one of my favorites and I love all the colors through-out it. The shoes were just a bad purchase. They fit weird and the back strap falls down a lot, even though it’s buckled on the last hole. There are just some shoes not meant for “Shoes-day”.

Tee: J Crew Vintage Cotton V-Neck, OPA Orange ?, M

Another new staple in my summer wardrobe has been linen tees. I have a few from J Crew, which are quite see through. I recommend a tank top underneath. The ones from Zara are thin as well but can be worn without a tank underneath. I love this purple and it goes well with the purple in the Waterlily Floral Soiree Skirt. This skirt, in both colors, has been another happy purchase. Like the Apothecary skirt, there are so many colors in both skirts that sometimes it is hard to pick a top to wear with it. I think I will have brought the CPW of these Tory Burch flip-flops down to mere pennies by the end of the summer.

Tee: Zara Linen T-Shirt, Dark Magenta, S
Skirt: J Crew Soiree Skirt inWaterlily Floral, 6 (in-store sale $59.99)

I have been trying to wear skirts and dresses this summer. They are just so quick and easy to wear and if you find some like the ones above, with many colors in them, you’ll have endless options to pair with them.

Have a great day!

    The navy linen shirt with the white bermudas is divine. Too bad about your shoes though, I would be pretty unhappy. Loving the skirts and tees, very pretty.

    I love, love the first outfit. I'm partial to navy color since I have so many in my wardrobe and easy for me to wear. I found the perfect fit shirt in linen in the regular size to be really long on me but I see that it looks 'normal' length on you. I might have to go into a store to try it out again.

    All of these outfits are beautiful, but the first picture is my favorite. Brunettes look so good in navy!!

    Your hair is getting so long!

    xoxo – Thanks!

    jcrewphd – That was my husband's favorite outfit, but he's also partial to navy. I like it too and navy & white is always a good pairing. I did go down to a 6 as opposed to my normal size 8 so you may want to try that. I have an issue with tightness in the shoulders and arms but I found this stretches a little and isn't uncomfortable in the smaller size.

    Kristin – Thank you!

    Desert Flower – Thanks! Just trying to stay cool. My hair has been driving me crazy but today I finally had my salon appointment! If I would have had to wait another week I would have shaved my head bald!

    The navy linen shirt looks awesome with the white shorts! You are a great inspiration!
