Nautical Blazers and Flip Flop Betrayal

I bought this striped blazer over a year ago. It was on sale for $20 and I instantly became infatuated with it. Despite this, I never wore it. Not even once, until yesterday. Part of it was that I was unsure of how to style it and part of it was that I became pregnant and it didn't fit for several months. Now I have several ideas for how to wear this blazer and I plan on wearing it often. I love the nautical touch that it adds to an outfit.

Something really tragic happened last week, guys. My flip flop snapped. I'm sure you can all empathize with this. I was just walking to my car, and it just gave out. I wasn't doing anything crazy. I trusted that flip flop and it betrayed me. Luckily I was right next to our home but still, it was an unpleasant surprise. So, flip flop shopping began. I'm not really down with the 99 cent kind from Walmart but I hate paying over $20 for a pair too. Nordstrom Rack came to the rescue. I got one of my favorite brands (Havaianas) for just $13. They have a giraffe print sole and gold strap. So, they're awesome. I know one day they will betray me too and snap when I'm in the middle of a grocery store or someplace equally awkward, but I'm choosing to enjoy the time we have together. What can I say, I'm a flip flop romantic.

  2. "60% of the time, my outfit works every time." That's just like a certain cologne I own!

  7. You look ridiculously classy in this outfit! I also LOVE that striped blazer. What a cool piece. I actually have so much trouble wearing flip-flops! Something about my big toe just doesn't fit into them right haha.

  8. I bought a pair of cheapos at Target to wear to the beach and I know at any moment they are going to bite the bullet. I still wear them to take the trash out and if I'm running out the door to run an errand or two. Any day. haha.

    Can't wait to see the other ways you style that top! It's adorable. (:
