Go Bold or Go Home

I’ve had this outfit since the day BANANA REPUBLIC debuted it’s MARIMEKKO  collection in store.  It was the first piece of the collection that caught my eye.  It’s bold, bright, happy, and makes me smile.  I had to rush to two different stores to find it in my size, but finally victory was mine!  Truth be told though, it’s been sitting in my closet since I bought it.  I’ve tried it on a couple of times, but always opted for a safer option.  Is it too bold, too bright I asked myself, and so it sat hanging, begging to worn.  When I started packing for my trip I knew it had to come with me because if I wouldn’t wear it on vacation, I probably would never wear it.   

Top and Shorts: Marimekko for Banana Republic (Sold Out) (SIMILAR 5” INSEAM SHORTS)  / Shoes: CASLON @ NORDSTROM / Bag: TORY BURCH  / Earrings: ARGENTO VIVO @ NORDSTROM / Bracelet: Old 

 Vacation wardrobe should be comfortable, versatile, and make you feel good, but it’s also a great opportunity to be adventurous and try something new.  And after wearing this on my trip, I can say, check, check, check and check!  These shorts are the perfect length, I'm not crossing into Daisy Duke territory but can still show a little leg.  And with the help of a spray tan and little wedge I'm ready for a night out!  Surprisingly this set is super versatile as well.  I wore the shorts with a white tank and flats and the top looked great with white skinnies and a heel.

Most importantly when I wore this out, I felt fun, fashionable and fierce! Sooooo, lesson learned; Sometimes we need to push the envelope a little to realize that we can pull off more than we thought we could.  And what better time to do so then on vacation!
