This outfit was so much fun to wear. I put it together in my head and sometimes outfits like that don't translate as well when you actually put the components on your body. In this case, I exceeded my own expectations. I love how the Wildfox Couture tee dressed down the beautiful lace shorts. I found the braided suede headband hanging around on the clothing rack on my way out the door. The sunglasses managed to really give the outfit a hippie vibe.
I was lusting after these Anna Sui lace shorts for the longest time on Net-a-Porter and it wasn't until they showed up on the Shopbop website that I finally took the plunge. They are made in the USA and have this cute lace-up front detailing. I think these lace shorts are different from others because of the antique white coloring and the circle cutouts. Out of all my lace shorts, this pair is my favorite. Because the lace shorts are so dressy I wanted to make them more casual for a daytime look. I did so by pairing them with this lovely Wildfox Couture native harley tee that Karina from Tea Leaf Clothing sent me. This top has the perfect shape so you can wear it off the shoulder for summer. It is extremely soft and I adore the native inspired print inside the letter O. That print is what led me to pick out this headband on the way out of the door. Like the Anna Sui shorts, the Wildfox tee is also made in the USA. Slightly oversized tops like these come in handy for dressing down fancy shorts during the day.
My Marni wedges have some brown and black in them, which I think worked for this particular outfit due to the headband and the coloring of the Wildfox top. These sandals are so comfortable, but I must admit my feet were a little sweaty due to the heat. The Free People suede braided feather headband has been hanging around for quite some time until it finally got to make an appearance on Fashion Snag. I think the tee and headband were pretty much made for each other. Any accessory with feathers usually catches my eye. My favorite outfits are always the bohemian inspired casual ones like these.
