Outfit: Rainy Weekend

Cargo and stripes || The Average Girl's Guide

How was the weather by you this weekend? Our Saturday was gorgeous (thank goodness because I was up at 5 am to do PR for the first West Palm Beach GreenMarket of the season then a pool party — all before noon!) but our Sunday was a big drench-fest (i.e. apologies for photo quality in some pics!). While I normally default to denim on the weekend, I still love my cargos from a season or two ago. Are they still in? Please say yes! I plan on wearing them nearly exactly as I did here a year and a half ago (though promise my hair will look nothing like this. ever again! hahaha).

Stella & Dot arm party  || The Average Girl's Guide

My stripes collection expanded again with the recent acquisition of this top from Nordstrom Rack in Boca Raton, Fla. Adore the drop shoulder, varying stripes, the longer back and overall coziness. A major shirt win!

As for accessories, this has been my go-to arm ensemble of late, with just the Michael Kors watch changing (you know my love for my white MK has no bounds! ha). Here’s my tortoise shell with two Stella & Dot pieces, the Foundation bracelet (which you can win here!) and the spiky RenegadeI finally purchased after debating it for about a year.

Renegade Stella & Dot bracelet, how to style

stripes: lush via nordstrom rack (similar, w/o stripes) || cargos: mossimo via target (similar) || shoes: steve madden heaven in pale gold (ps: these are 100 percent my go-to flats I somehow never wore on TAGG; the neutral yet shimmery hue makes them perfect for all occasions. Truth: I’m strongly considering a back-up pair! Also, similar with cute spikes) || bag: from a leather market in florence, italy (2008) || watch: michael kors || bracelets: stella & dot’s renegade (spiky one) and foundation (c/0) || necklace: c/o maya brenner “s” necklace

      I’m just discovering! I find the price point for S&D a little random sometimes but there’s a few pieces I can’t get enough of.

    Why don’t you put up here how much you hate the armed forces who protect your right to spew your foul hatred of them you should be ashamed. You should be but unfortunately you will never be. It is cowards like you who will never serve in our military why don’t put on here how our American soldiers deserve to die????? .
