Summer Hats and Stripes

Dress c/o Conversation Pieces  | Sandals: H&M {similar} | Necklace: Target | Both Hats: Borrowed from Mom | Diaper Bag: Kate Spade (gift from Ting, creator of Neat Weddings) |  Watch: Target {similar}

As you all know, a few weeks ago, we went on our first road trip with A!  More details and photos from that will come in a future post (I’m still terribly behind in posting outfits and photos), but I just wanted to share this little sneak peek road trip outfit.  This little coral and taupe striped number from Conversation Pieces is quickly becoming one of my favorites… not only because it contains my fave color of the moment and one of my favorite patterns, but it’s super light, comfy and could totally work well dressed up for a nice dinner or dressed down for the beach.

The dress totally gave me the perfect excuse to borrow a couple of my Mom’s summer hats.  There I go with the stripes + florals pattern mixing again with the first hat, I just can’t get enough of it.  The second hat?  Well my husband thinks it is just the most hilarious thing ever and made me take a few pictures with it.  It’s a mix of straw floppy hat brim + gangsta baseball cap.  The last picture is my best attempt at looking hardcore.  It’s kind of amazing how a simple hat can change your look completely.
