The problem with taking pictures on my front porch is that people are often outside enjoying the nice weather. Today, it was my husband returning from a walk with the pooch. Right after the below picture was taken, I started dorkily dancing while the timer kept snapping pictures.
This week’s Wear It Wednesday challenge was to build an outfit around a summer purse. I’m considering my bright blue Michael Kors bag a summer purse because A. It’s bright, B. I bought it in the summer, and C. I use it everyday anyway.
To plan an outfit around the bag, I wanted to go classic Americana with a simple silhouette because that seems to be the Michael Kors aesthetic. My first thought was khakis, but I don’t really own any. I ended up with what I call my “Going to breakfast at the country club then maybe playing tennis later” look. Maybe more Ralph Lauren than Michael Kors, but whatevs. They’re both American.
