Singing the Blues

Happy Tuesday, folks!

I was thrilled when I saw that today’s Creative Closet prompt was all about blue – as you’ve probably seen in my weekly Thursday roundup posts, I’ve been loving the combination of navy blue and white for the warm weather. Since the weather was a tad cooler when we took these photos, I was finally able to break out this dark denim button-down that I’ve had hanging in the closet for months, as well as my favorite new patchwork-patterned infinity scarf that I picked up from The Loft Outlet last month. You’ll definitely be seeing this scarf on repeat throughout the summer – I already can’t wait to wear it with flowy, chiffon blouses and a denim jacket.


denim shirt: Old Navy (exact) | patchwork infinity scarf: The Loft Outlet (similar, similar) | white capris: Banana Republic Factory, old (similar, similar) | belt: American Eagle (exact) | sandals: Old Navy, old (similar, similar)

Shop the look:
!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s); e.id  = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

  13. Thanks, girl! I've only discovered the half-tuck in the past year or so, and I feel like it helps balance my proportions a bit since I have a narrow waist and pretty wide hips. And, I agree with you about blue on blondes – it just works!

  21. Thanks, lady! Yes, my hair grows so fast that it seems to have grown out a bit, and now I'm not having such a hard time styling it in it's natural, straight state. 🙂

    Chambray and white denim is apparently a popular look today! I've got the same look today too! I dressed mine up for work with nude heels and an over-sized statement necklace. Love it!

  27. You look beautiful! I love a denim top paired with white denim bottoms. Just a classic look that works for everything!

    Looove this outfit! I wish I could do the shirt tuck thing but my body proportions look really strange when I try, you on the other hand look like casual chic perfection! Blue is definitely my favourite clothing colour too. I think it looks great on everyone but especially pops next to blonde hair!

    You look beautiful friend, love that scarf! I love blue & white for sure

  31. This combo is perfect! I love the scarf and shirt, I would be wearing them all the time too! I'm definitely stocking all these ideas for my post baby wardrobe – not too much sense in spending $$ on new clothes in the last trimester if I can get away with it!

  32. Love this look! I am all about the color blue, too – honestly I've had to stop myself from buying more blue tops the past few months.. I'm just always drawn to them or white ones!

  33. You look beautiful Karly! Those jeans are very flattering on you too. 🙂 Oh and I'll be using this as inspiration at work when I'm creating outfits for customers. Thank you for that! Have a great day! 🙂

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
