wear it wednesday [palm-leaf casual]

Wednesday, June 12, 2013
to say that last week was a good mail week would be a major understatement. not only did i get my new favorite article of clothing, but my long-awaited, much-anticipated, definitely-worth-it joie palm leaf print blazer came too! [oh happy day!]

after squealing over it for a bit [and, of course, immediately instagramming it] i couldn't wait to wear it. [but i did wait, until sunday]. 

this is what i call my palm-leaf casual look. complete with yet another pair of diy distressed shorts and a new james perse tank. [btw, always buy these usually pricey james perse at marshall's or t.j. maxx because you'll get them at a fraction of the price. always.]




[james perse tank (via t.j. maxx), h&m shorts distressed diy, madewell drifter shades]

[coach sandals (old via marshall's)]


it just makes me feel so fun and tropical! how would you wear palm-leaf?

  4. I agree with Annie - "Um that blazer is fabulous"!

    Really! The print is just so nice! Doesn't look Hawaii-ish .. ya know.
