Sequins and Sea Breezes: Striped and Casual

Striped and Casual

4/29/2015

 
Happy Wednesday pretty ladies! I don't know about you but I'm glad this week is on the downward slope now. I've had an incredibly rough week which is why I've been MIA from the blog and work has been incredibly busy. If I'm absent for the rest of the week, don't hold it against me. I have a lot of things going on, I haven't been feeling well at all and I have two meetings then I have to go offsite to Tampa for a meeting so I have a feeling it'd be easier to just throw in the towel this week.
 
 
You may have seen me post about this tank on my Friday Favorites post a few weeks ago and I finally ran out to Zara and got it last week. I am pleased to say it was everything I was hoping for in a simple striped tank. I ended up wearing this to my friend's twin's birthday party back in my Florida hometown over the weekend and since the party was a pool party I decided to keep it very casual. I paired the tank with a pair of simple cut off shorts and my favorite Tory Burch Miller sandals but to spice it up I ended up throwing on some layered necklaces (of course I ended up losing a few during the course of the night) and my Ray-Ban flash aviators.
