A Little Bit Country

I definitely consider myself a "city person" through and through, but somehow this combo of chambray, stripes and straw ended up fitting a more country-style aesthetic. I guess I'd consider this look "farmer's daughter chic." ;)

This chambray top--which came c/o Forever 21 RED--has been one of my faves for work and post-work, since it's office appropriate while still being on trend. I haven't been able to track down this exact top online, but I found this similar one (available in several washes) for less than $27. I paired the lace-up top with a cute striped skirt, which I bought for around $12 at a mall in Tokyo. (Found a similar-style skirt, complete with pockets, on sale for $18-$24 here!)

I finished off the look with a pair of basic black heels from Aldo ($65) and a straw boater hat ($14 from Nordstrom--it sold out, but there are very similar ones on sale here and here for under $20!). Adding in a gifted black tote and $10 sunglasses, the whole outfit came out to just over $100.
