At this point I'm sure you could guess what I'm about to say. I found this silky open back top on sale at Madewell last summer and just couldn't pass it up. I loved the open back and the neck tied into a bow, still do in fact. And I have actually worn it on this blog once before, last August on our trip to New Orleans. You can read about that here if you like. If not, I won't be offended. Oh how I'd like to go back there. We had such a good time on that trip! 

This time, I paired it with my new favorite shorts (they are so comfortable, absolutely perfect for beach days) and a wide brimmed panama hat. Can just I say how much I love this hat? Now that I'm thinking about it, I first spotted it in the New Orleans shop on that very trip. It started to pour on our walk back from the French Market so we ducked into the shop on Royal Street. The power went out while JD and I (but mostly just me) were trying on hats and they locked us in the shop to wait until it came back on. I fell in love this hat but they didn't have it in my size. It was one of those things that I just kept thinking about afterwards. Long story short, I ended up finding it in my size in the Park Slope shop sometime mid December and the rest is history. 

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go dream of beignets while I have my coffee. Happy Tuesday, thank you for reading, and enjoy the rest of your day!
