#OOTD For a Family Party!

ootd 8214

Hi girlies! So, today I went to the local Italian festival with my sister and parents for some yummy cannolis. Then, we went to my aunt’s surprise 50’th birthday party at their lake house. I love this outfit I picked out!


I started out with these cute shorts from Vineyard Vines. I love the bright green color, and the navy whales are adorable!


I paired the shorts with this navy tee-shirt from the J. Crew Factory Store.


I really love the anchor embroidery on the pocket. The threading is very thick, so the anchor really stands out.


To keep warm by the water I added this denim jacket from J. Crew. I really love the stitching on this piece.

BONUS! It also has a handy hidden pocket on the inside. Perfect for those days when you really don’t want to carry a purse.


For jewelry I added this monogram necklace from Burlington Coat Factory. The chain is starting to rust after about a year of wear, but at only around $6 this buy was definitely worth it.


I also wore these bracelets to add a bit more bling. The white enamel bangle is from a local boutique and reads “Dress like Jackie, Act like Audrey, Party like Gatsby.” I’ve gotten so many comments on it! This piece is a definite conversation starter. The Alex and Ani bracelet was a gift from my mom. I like wearing this depiction of the Boston skyline when I’m at school, just in case I get a little homesick.


And of course I wore my pearl studs, because I don’t think I’m physically capable of leaving the house without them.


I finished off this look with these adorable angelfish Sperry’s with flower cutouts. These have definitely been my favorite pair of shoes this summer. They’re just so comfy and cute!


And here’s the finished outfit! I love the way it turned out!
