Gingham Shimmy Shirt

Gingham Shimmy Shirt

Hellloo friends! It's been a little bit! I am (theoretically) back to normal after vacation. I'm mostly caught up at work and the house is getting to a place where we can actually move in. Tucker and I finally had an opportunity to go out and shoot last weekend, so I wanted to show off some of my fun spring finds that I purchased for my cruise! Unfortunately... I live in MN, which means that it is STILL snowing out. Luckily, it was sunny and above freezing (slightly), so I just went with it :) Enjoy this summer outfit with a snowy backdrop.

How fun is this shirt?! I swear, Target has totally stepped up their game. I found this shirt a few weeks before my cruise and it is still in stock - also comes in a gorgeous blue. I wore this outfit to dinner one of the nights of my cruise and I couldn't stop dancing with my little cousin! I love the color and the volume of the sleeves, it's a great "party" shirt. It's just slightly cropped, so I would recommend wearing it with a higher waisted pant or tucked into pants/a skirt. I like how it's versatile enough to be dressier or more casual, depending on how it's paired.

I know I have already raved about these pants, but they are literally the perfect black skinny jeans. I've owned a couple pairs in the past and have never been all that thrilled. These have the right amount of stretch and have a good high rise, and they have held up well in the wash. I have even worn them to work! I just love 'em. Might need a second pair. Luckily, my newest customer has a casual office, so I can wear these even more often!!

I'm gonna wrap it up with a comment about my accessories. I've never really been a hat person, but I knew I needed a big sun hat for a cruise. I picked this one up at Target (classic lol), and I really like it! It's not round all the way around, so it has a little bit of extra shape, and the classic black band is simple and elegant. I also found that it was very good quality compared to the other sun hats at this price point. I paired it with a simple pair of nude wedges that I've had for years, can't go wrong with a classic silhouette like these. I think this outfit would be perfect for a night out with friends, date night, or maybe just a weekend brunch with flats! I'll definitely be getting good use out of all these items.
