The perks of blogging

Look who has been on a pink gingham kick lately? I’m sensing a trend. On my plate for today? Working on my internship for a few hours, job searching and watching the French Open. Tennis is quite possibly the only reason summer is bearable (hello, Nadal, Federer and Djokovic). Here’s the breakdown:

Gingham Blouse: IZOD via Salvation Army (love this one in teal)
Chambray Blouse: Garage sale
Shorts: Tommy Hilfiger via Garage sale (similar here)
Wedges: Goodwill
Bag: Banana Republic
Sunnies: Forever 21
Bracelets: LOFT/Saver's 

I’m not typically a “matching” type of girl, but this season in fashion has really taken a toll on my no-matching rule. I never in a million years would have paired all pink and denim together. From the matching of my gingham to my bag, and the denim of my shorts, blouse, wedges and even bracelet, I continually find surprises within my wardrobe. Oh, the perks of being a personal-style blogger.
