Hey hey and happy Sunday y’all! I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! Charlie and I spent the entire weekend thus far working on some house projects to get our house ready to put on the market for our big move. My mom and father-in-law were so kind to come up and spend the weekend helping us and we got so much done! We’re so blessed! We figured we needed to start saying goodbye to our favorite PA places and we all deserved a treat for our insanely hard work over the last few days so we went to dinner at Arugula last night and it was bittersweet. It’s been our all time favorite restaurant since moving to PA and it was a sweet celebration for the new chapter but a sad goodbye to amazing Italian pasta and Belgian chocolate mouse. 😛 If you’re a Philly suburbian (or a Philadelphian!), make sure you check this place out because it. is. the. BOMB.
I wore this black and white beach outfit when I was at the (wait for it…) BEACH with my family in June and I was lovin’ it. It’s super casual and comfy which is perfect for the beach but also chic enough that you could wear it even when you’re not on vacation. This black and white leopard print top (currently 50% off for cardholders and 40% off for non-cardholders!) was an impulse purchase that I absolutely couldn’t resist (oops!). But I have no regrets about it. It’s a nice black and white option when it comes to leopard print but you can also pair it with browns and it would still be totally fine!
I wanted to wear it at the beach so I paired it with loose fitting white linen shorts, a pair of flat back sandals (flat always = more casual) and a black straw boater hat and black rattan bag. The leopard print gives this outfit enough of a stylish edge that you could wear this outfit anywhere. But the flowiness of the outfit combined with the linen and straw accents makes it a great fit for vacation, too. You can also totally wear this top into the fall. I’m picturing it with high waisted black skinny jeans, cognac block heels, a cognac belt and a cognac bag.
Thanks so much for reading today! I hope you like this vacation outfit as well! I’ll talk to you guys next time and I hope you have a wonderful week in the meantime!
