pattern play

The annual Gasparilla Parade was this Saturday in Tampa. We had a great time people watching from a friend's pool, and the style had to have been my favorite part. Have you noticed how a good theme will have all adults throwing their usual caution to the wind and embracing the requisite ensemble without a care in the world?

 As much as I love the crop top trend, there's no way you'll catch me bearing my midriff any time soon. Instead, I've been wearing this top {ironically, purchased for my Halloween costume} as a layer rather than a stand-alone piece.

striped top: Zara (similar here) // silk leopard top: joie (love this one) // denim: F21 (similar here and here) // boots: DV dolce vita (on my wish list)// pearls: Lauren Elan (one of my most-worn items) // fan necklace: J.Crew // rings: penelope t, atlantic-pacific X baublebar // sunglasses: CĂ©line

I hope you had a great weekend, and have a fantastic week.
