I’ve definitely been living in my newfound silk shirt lately. Yesterday, I took a day off from work so it was a good opportunity catch up on some baking, reading and visiting some friends. We took advantage of a vantage point near their house that boasts gorgeous views of the ocean (look in the background). I opted for a more casual feel with the shirt and paired it with this striped skirt. I found this skirt a few weeks ago and immediately found in love with the crisp blue color. I topped off the look with gold accessories and a neutral crossbody purse. Perfect for going to dinner afterwards! Have you taken advantage of a day off from work?
