Last weekend, I did a huge wardrobe clearout and moved all of my winter items into my under bed storage, leaving plenty of room to bring out my warm weather clothes! One of my favorite pieces that came back out for this season is this blue and white striped bodysuit that I bought on major sale last year at J.Crew. This was the first bodysuit I'd ever tried, and at first, I was hesitant. Most of the bodysuits I'd seen up until this point last year weren't really my style, but when Crew brought out a line of adorable t-shirt style options I decided to give this one a try. I'm so happy I did; this was one of my most-worn items all last season and it's just so comfortable and easy to wear. I was so excited when the weather finally got warm enough to pull it back out again!

The outfit I wore today is very much a combination of old and new. My bodysuit, wicker clutch from VV, and Daniel Wellington Southampton watch are both things that I've loved and used in seasons past, but these linen culottes and slides are two new additions to my wardrobe. Actually, both are things that were a bit of a risk for me; I've never owned a pair of slide-style loafers or loose culotte/palazzo pants before, but (again!) I took a risk and both are something I've already gotten so much use out of and can see myself wearing all season. Initially, I was concerned that culottes would be unflattering on my body type as I'm a bit curvier, but honestly, I love the way they look and they are just so comfortable and much cooler temperature-wise than jeans. The loafers are sort of a no-brainer (honestly, I have no idea why I've never owned a pair before!). They're so classic, comfortable, and adorable. I couldn't resist the unique white color with the navy piping and tiny bows! Totally sold.

Ok, finally to address one of the focal points of this outfit: the white knotted rope earrings from J.Crew. Again, I bought these on a major sale (for $10, down from over $40!). Dangly circular statement earrings have been popular for a few years now, and I've hesitantly wanted to buy a pair but was waiting for the perfect style at the perfect price. These fit the bill; loving how the rope style is a little different and brings a summery nautical element to an outfit with a neutral white shade that goes with everything.

I'm so excited and inspired by summer fashion lately! When I reorganized my closet for this season, I saw so many outfit possibilities that I can't wait to share.
