Wore this to a Sunday concert festival in Stern Grove. Sometimes, there's nothing better than some cumbia music to lift your spirits, even if the sun only came out all of three times. (Such a tease!)

As for the outfit, I've been living in loose, button down shirts lately and loved the almost late 1950s/early 1960s vibe of the outfit with my headwrap turban and all. (My tribute to Mad Men!)

Bonus note: How darling is this necklace? Courtesy of Jess LC, I have to admit, this is perhaps one of my new favorite charm necklaces. It's simple, but I love the concept of it. Her Franklin Collection, all of which have a phrase translated in braille on them (I chose "Be Brave") is available here.

Anddddd....remember those 11 beautiful and far more better at staying up on group clothing swap bloggers, the Delightful Dozen? Well you can check out their styling of the necklace as well right here.

Shirt: Button down silk shirt, vintage Christian Dior
Shorts: Khaki high waisted shorts, Zara
Shoes: Gold gladiator sandals
Head band: Scarf worn as head band turban
Jewelry: "Be Brave" necklace, courtesy of Jess LC

  1. I like how the scarf is really a pop of color against the casual-cool of the outfit! It reminds me a little bit of safari chic.

  9. I want to fill my closet with loose button downs this fall. They look so casually glamorous! I can't handle sleeves in the summer, for the most part, but have been loving this look all summer long. You look great!
