The End of my KC Chapter: In Reinvented Sea Foam

I have some news that I have already shared with those closest to me and in this brief moment I have been able to find time to share with you all as well. In less than a week I will be moving to Chicago, IL where I will take on a new and challenging but familiar position with an elite fashion company. I've had wonderful support and encouragement from those around me and couldn't feel more confident in my move and in the start of a new chapter in my life. This impending move has been exasperating and thrilling, as a result I have not found much of any free time to share with you all my recent fashion stylings. Yesterday showed to be the perfect time to take a couple pictures to share with you. It was the last day I spent with my dearest friend Ashley (we're not quite sure what we are going to do without each other). A truly memorable day that I'll cherish for the Ashley-deprived months to come. Here's a look at the blouse and jewelry from my previous post that I've taken and created a whole new outfit with. Which one is your fave?  

Head to toe: The straw hat I got on a visit to San Fran from a precious boutique ($35). The earrings are from Francesca's and necklace from TJ ($12+$15). The blouse and alligator shoes were on sale at Ann Taylor, they always have spectacular sales ($14+$39). The polka dot shorts (yes, they're short!) were on sale at Target ($8).   
Total out of pocket: $123

Here's to my final Kansas City blog post and to the many new fabulous Chicago ones!
A special thanks to Ashley for putting up with me and taking these gorgeous pictures!
