Hey you guys!! Happy Friday!! It’s been crazy how fast this week has gone by!
To say that I am ready for the weekend is an understatement! (Shopping, food and fun? Yes Please!)
Memorial Day is right around the corner and I thought to myself ,”hmm I have dozens of outfit ideas on that!”
I personally love anything that is red,white and blue, anchors, stars and stripes! It all excites me!!
I recently shopped at Rue21 and picked up some clearance goodies since they were having the entire store on sale! plus buy one get one 50%OFF !
So…… I bought this top!
I know I know… You’d think I would have enough anchor print tops already right?!
You can never have too many cute anchor shirts!!
As soon as i saw it I knew it had to be mine + I got it half off!
You can’t tell in the pic but the sleeves are actually cuffed! So J. Crew!
Now, I loved how the first outfit looked but last year I did a pretty similar look with the same skirt but with a different anchor top which was also coincidentally from Rue 21!
So I wanted to jazz it up a bit and I knew exactly what I was going to pair it up with!
I actually had to dig this striped H&M blazer from my hamper which is pretty intimidating because it was stuffed full!
I love how this outfit screams nautical! Oh and here’s a quick little tip for easy pattern mixing!
Always match colors not patterns! In this outfit the striped blazer works with the anchor print top because they’re both navy and white. And the pop of yellow works because yellow and navy are opposites on the color wheel.
Since there was alot of pattern mixing and colors already I opted for my nude Christian Louboutin heels!
Not the comfiest pair of heels but definitely the most stylish! (That pop of red gets me every time!)
I already want to wear this shirt again!!
Well that’s all for now and I have included some outfit ideas for Memorial Day Weekend and 4th of July!
Hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
