My New Favorite Outfit: Double Ikat

Friday, June 7, 2013

Double Ikat

I wore this outfit on Monday which was my first official day off.  Grant will still go to daycare two days a week this summer to keep his spot, so that means I will have two days to myself.  I plan to do a lot of the cleaning and grocery shopping on those days, but I'm really looking forward to the luxury of time to myself.  I even ventured to the neighborhood park for some pictures before going to an eye appointment. As for this outfit,  I love the ikat pattern on the tank and am sooooo crazy about my new Stella and Dot metallic ikat bag.  It's the perfect size and pattern, and I really wanted a fun and easy new bag for summer.  This one is perfection!

Also I entered's expert shopper contest. I'd love if you'd take a second and vote for me here. Simply scroll down to my picture and click "love it." Thanks a ton, ladies!

  7. I am not a big fan of Ikat, but this shirt is beautiful! Love how you paired it with white shorts, and the leopard belt is such a fun addition (totally in love with leopard surprises!).
    And yes, that bag is phenomenal! I saw it in person, and I love all the room it has and the print surprisingly goes with anything!
    Enjoy your weekend, and the two days you have to yourself! =)
