Smooth Sailing

Ahoy everyone!

I am trying to wear all my clothes that are appropriate for our spring (under 90 degrees) before it gets too hot. That means my skinny jeans, clamdiggers and shirts that must be layered are coming out to play.

I picked this shirt up at TJ Maxx a while ago. I love it, but it's actually made of a polyester knit, and as you can see, it must be layered. So once the hot weather hits, it will probably stay in my closet until October or so. I wore this outfit for a casual day shopping with a friend at an outlet mall. All the elements are uncomplicated and easy to take off and on when trying on new things.

Thanks, everyone! Comments and suggestions are always appreciated! :)

Dolman-Sleeve Top: BCBG (via TJ Maxx)
Tank: Banana Republic
Clamdiggers: J. Crew
Sailboat Necklace: J. Crew
Shoes: Me Too

    So fresh! Perfect for spring. That color of orange is wonderful with your complexion.

  • Deborah replied 10 years ago

    Ana, this looks lovely. The orange top is so pretty on you. I like the proportions of this outfit and the necklace is the perfect accessory.

    Fabulous casual outfit! You look stunning in orange and I like that the top needs to be layered with something underneath - gives it more visual interest. Your clams are the perfect length!

    Awesome outfit Ana! You look so pretty in orange, and I love that necklace.

  • citygirldc replied 10 years ago

    Love the orange color on you. It's the perfect casual outfit.

    Super-cute casual look!

  • ManidipaM replied 10 years ago

    That colour really suits you! And what a cute necklace. My sympathies on a 90-degree 'spring', as I'm in a very similar boat (sorry, couldn't resist!).

    Ana, way to go creating your own spring! Even though it's warm enough to go right into summer clothes, if you do, pretties like this won't get worn. I love the orange with the ton-sur-ton stripes. Very nice with the denim clams and flats and perfect for shopping. The nautical necklace is a nice touch too. You look fresh, breezy and fab!

    Ana - This is truly a wonderful look on you. The color of the top is fantastic with your skin tone. I love the nautical fun!

  • rae replied 10 years ago

    Adorable top and necklace - actually, the whole outfit is perfect! I would totally wear this, too. Too bad about the polyester; otherwise it would be nice and breezy for summer nights over a tank, too.

    Love orange on you great color. That is a good lenght for the clam diggers and i like the white top peeking out.

  • Louise replied 10 years ago

    Great outfit I love the way the white layer shows up the orange stripes x

  • Ana replied 10 years ago

    Thank you so much, everyone! I love orangey-red, it's one of my favorite colors. : D

  • kellygirl replied 10 years ago

    I love this, Ana! That's an updated version of my summer uniform! I love the orange against the denim--SO fresh and pretty. You have me hankering for warmer weather : ) The fit of those clams is perfection!

  • HelenInCanada replied 10 years ago

    I covet your BCBG orange top! The whole outfit is sweet.

  • Parsley replied 10 years ago

    What a perfect casual springy outfit! It just shows how chic a very simple outfit can be when all the details and fit are right.
    I need some clam-diggers like that- they look terrific!

  • Isabel replied 10 years ago

    What a great outfit. I just love it ! I agree with parsley, a "simple" outfit on the surface but with so much more panache. ( Yes, I used the word "panache"..LOL )

  • Heather replied 10 years ago

    Ana, the next time I am in Austin, you and Sarah better lock up your closets. :D So fresh and so beautiful.

  • qfbrenda replied 10 years ago

    So cute!

  • Meredith1953 replied 10 years ago

    Love you in that orange striped top! It is such a lovely color on you and it looks great teamed with the denim clamdiggers.

  • san replied 10 years ago

    Very pretty Ana. I love orangey red too but cannot wear it so I love seeing it on you. The sailboat necklace is very refreshing for a hot spring day.

  • Ana replied 10 years ago

    Aww, thank you for the kind comments! : )

  • nancylee replied 10 years ago

    You look lovely in orange! And I know what you mean about wearing your layering clothes early in the season...before it gets too hot. I'm aiming to do the same. :)

  • Jonesy replied 10 years ago

    Fantastic look! I hope you get a few more wears out of that fab top before it hits 100 degrees :).

  • Sunita replied 10 years ago

    Oh, I love that orange color on you! I really like the grinning effect with the white T underneath.

  • Beth Ann replied 10 years ago

    I'm storing up good ideas for warm weather, casual looks, and this is helping my "research," Ana! Terrific color and layering. I like the bold simplicity of the silhouette contrasting with the delicate necklace. I'm liking the juxtaposition of distance impact (like a bold color) and close-up detail (necklace). There's something fun about grabbing someone's attention from faraway, and then giving them a treat in a pretty detail that's only visible when they come near.
