Lookbook: Pink Lemonade

My mother in law loves Vera Bradley and we have a store over here in Bellevue so whenever we want to buy her a present we always stop in and get her something from there.  I always thought the stuff was cute but not really my style.  To be honest I don't think I would have ever stepped foot in the store if it weren't for my mother in law.  But now that we've bought her a few things from there,  I can appreciate why people love it.   The patterns that they come out with are always so pretty and the bags and totes are really great sizes.  I've never really thought about getting something for myself there but the last time we were shopping for her, I spotted these clutches and instantly thought "I love those!" and came up with a million different outfits I could wear them with.  I couldn't choose between this one or a blue pattern but I finally went with the cheery mix of the pinks and oranges.  The bag just screams SUMMER to me so I had to put on a summery outfit to match :)

on sale for $13!  I love that the back is longer than the front.
I never really wear yellow but I do love the color.  This little yellow tee with ruffles is super cute!  Ooh, I love the Winner's Circle tee from Anthropologie with the rosettes and it comes in so many great colors.

J Crew Wild ikat chino short  
I got my shorts last year but I always love JCrew's printed shorts.  These ikat ones are fab, I think I need them!  You could do cute flower print shorts too like these from Forever 21or ASOS.
 

Don't let the size fool you!  This clutch actually carries a lot of stuff.  I love how roomy it is and there are inner pockets to keep your lipstick, hand lotion and cell phone secure.  My color is sold out but this yellow pattern is cute and would go well with jeans as your "pop" of color.  Or QVC has it in purple and Vera Bradley has a blue one too.  This one with the reds and blues is pretty too.

You can get mine here in bone or black.  I think they sell out of the nude too fast online so it's hard to find.  I love the Simple Pumps!  They are one of my most comfortable shoes. And of course you know I love the nude pump, they are my legs' best friend when I wear shorts and skirts!  Love the shape of these Miu Miu pumps.  And how gorgeous are these Valentino pumps?  If you are looking for something more affordable, these are similar for $50!

  6. Perfect summery look! I'm also a huge fan of the Jcrew shorts. The 3" inseam is perfect for shorties!!

    RE: Vera, I was never into it either. A few years ago my sister took a job working in their store and I guess after going in to see her so much the stuff started to grow on me. I don't think I'd start collecting it, but like you, I can appreciate the pretty colors an prints.

  7. Adorable as always! I have those Ikat shorts, and they are honestly the best fitting shorts I've ever bought. The length is perfect, and the print is pure perfection! xo

  22. I have the same clutch in "Make Me Blush." I think the sales associate at the VB I go to mentioned that it [Knot Just a Clutch] was being discontinued, so I'm hoping they have a few left when I go!

    This is the perfect summer outfit- love it!
