Pink and navy stripes

Oh my goodness, guys! Sorry for the radio silence today! I only had my Monday and Tuesday posts pre-written over the weekend, and when it came time to try and write this post last night, it was not happening. Needless to say the birthday festivities were a success, but it was probably just a wee bit much wine for a Tuesday evening, and I was dragging this morning! All I have on my agenda after I write this post is curling up in my chair and napping! I will have to share all the remaining details about my birthday celebrations (including gifts!) in another post!

Sunnies: Ray Ban (other colors here) | Earrings: Old Navy | Necklace: Express | Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim (shop all the colors and sizes HERE and use code "INTHEBAG" for 20% off!) | Top: Express | Skirt: LOFT (option) | Heels: Saint Laurent (other colors here)

When I saw this portofino as I was browsing the Express website, I added it to my cart immediately. It's striped. It's got navy in it. And basically those two reasons are enough. I wanted to style it two ways for you - one a little bit more dressy with the floral lace pencil skirt, and a second look with some distressed denim shorts and flat sandals. 
Clearly I love pairing this top with white - it feels more summery when paired with something white or ivory! It will be a great piece in the fall with my quilted ivory vest! Oh! Excited thinking of it!

Alright, that's all the writing I can manage tonight! I promise I will catch up on life here soon! Thanks for all of the sweet birthday wishes! You guys really made my day!!



  1. Love the pink and navy color combo. Great look!



  2. Sounds like you had a fab time celebrating your birthday! I am wearing the same floral skirt on the blog today too.


    Would love to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  3. So happy you had a great birthday and some time off after is only necessary. You look FAB, I have that skirt but I need to wear it soon.


  4. That top is so cute, I love the colors of the stripes...so fun pairing it with lace!

  5. Hope you had a great birthday!! Would love for you to join my Fridays Fashions link up tomorrow. :)

  6. It sounds like your birthday party was a success! :) I can't decide which outfit I like better. I think the lace skirt just ads something special. You are such a babe!



  7. Ahhh! I have been on a portofino ban lately but this one may get me to go back to them haha! It is SO cute!

  8. Glad to hear you had a great birthday! As for that shirt -- YES, YES, and YES! Beautiful color and goes awesomely with those sandals.
