My 2015 casual summer uniform is the same as my 2014 casual summer uniform. What can I say: the heart wants what it wants. And what my heart wants this summer (apart from Brandon Flowers 80s-inspired pop songs) is cute floral Anthro skirts, and this Old Navy top.

Since stripes and florals is such a safe combo (sez the fashun blogger), I decided to add another print into the mix. This J. Crew Factory belt has an elastic back, so it’s nicely accommodating, but I’m not sure if it’s as versatile as I originally thought. The (ikat?) print is interesting, but maybe a little busy? I don’t know, help me out here, peeps.

Speaking of things only fashun bloggers probably understand, the nice thing about posing in my parents’ extra long driveway is that I can engage in all manner of twee poses without feeling quite as silly as I would on my own, considerably more exposed property. Of course, my husband-slash-photographer is always there to remind me of just how silly I look. He’s awfully reliable that way. (Love ya, babe!)

  1. If you ever decide that belt isn’t working for you, I’d be more than happy to take it off your hands…. Lol.

    Personally I don’t think the print is too busy, but I don’t know that it meshes perfectly with that top and skirt combo. It seems like a belt that would perk up a more subdued print like the stripes on the top over the anthro floral print. Have you tried pairing it with your RED Valentino skirt? When I first saw it I wanted to pair it with black, white and red, but I’m predictable like that.

    • The Valentino skirt sits too low for the belt to fit, sadly. I am sure I’kk find something I can wear it with, and if not … there is always next year’s clothing swap 😉
