Sweetly Shaded: Forever Red

So happy to take this sunhat out on my day off. I was expecting to have more of a productive day rather than a leisurely one, however the beautiful weather coaxed me into lunching and shopping with my mother followed by a quite lounge on the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum lawn with Miss Lindsey. The tied chambray button up over my red sundress was perfect for today, while it was breezy in the shade it kept the sun off my shoulders in the sun. As vampy as my wedges are they were still practical for traipsing through the park (no sinking heels)! As much as I use this bag, it is so versatile and any of my current reads (Summer by Edith Warton) always fit nicely inside. Time to get a new bag, maybe?   





First things first, the brown straw hat is from TJ Maxx ($20). As well as the necklace, the vampy wedges, the London Fog bag, AND the MK shades are also from TJ ($15+$30+$30+20). The red sundress was on sale at Gap ($25). The chambray button-up is a thrift ($3). And lastly the earrings are from Francesca's ($12).
Total out of pocket: $155

Thank you to the very talented Lindsey for taking the photos you can visit her blog here.

  6. This outfit is so picnic chic! the hat, the shoes, the dress, the statement necklace and the chambray ! I love all the details, they come together so nicely.

    I will most definitely check out SF's botanical garden if I've ever in Cali, and unfortunately my closet cleaning is still ongoing lol I have way too much crap. But thanks for your suggestions and reminding me that I need to get back to cleaning my closet !
