Trying Something New

I've never considered myself a hat person. I love the idea of them and always think they look so cute on other people, the key to that being other people! A long time ago I had put them on a list of things that weren't for me. I'm always looking for ways to protect my face from the sun so I've occasionally worn a baseball cap or floppy hat. This is more out of necessity than fashion. 

I decided to step out of my fashion comfort zone this summer. I wanted to find a hat that I could wear with all types of outfits and decided on a panama hat. After scouring several stores I found the perfect one at Target! 

For my first attempt at hat wearing, I wanted to go a bit dressy. My love affair with off the shoulder tops is still alive and I couldn't resist pulling this one out! I love how white jeans make the polka dots pop. One of my favorite silhouettes is a loose top with a fitted bottom. Skinny jeans add balance to the flowy ruffles on the top. This top is currently sold out but I found a similar one here! Keeping with the neutral color theme, these tassel sandals completed the look (more sizes here and here). I first featured these heels here! There are a bit of a splurge so I found a similar pair here

I linked this post on Sydney Fashion Hunter too.
