Striped Shirt + Lace Culottes: Orlando, Florida

Happy new week, everyone! Back at my desk this morning but not before I begin sharing a short series of posts from my recent little Floridian holiday. Kushal and I spent a few short but sweet days in Orlando last month and needless to say, K was back at his photographer duties ;) as we made our way around in the humid summer heat. Per usual, the first thing we did was to bee-line it to wherever the food was, and all signs pointed towards the Winter Park neighborhood in Orlando. Cask and Larder came highly recommended for it's creative farm-to-table menu and it didn't disappoint at all! K was spooning out the sauce that came with the roasted okra while I had my face buried in the pimento cheese.. foodies > everything else, always. ;)

I wore this summer casual combo for the evening that's literally everything I love this summer- stripes, ruffles, cold shoulders, lace, culottes and lace-up sandals.. Phew, quite the list, eh? :) This adorably updated striped buttondown top is such a steal for <$15 and if not tucked in like I have, it's a boxy crop top, making it just as well styled on fitted bottoms like your favorite jeans, shorts or skirt. My own current favorite bottoms, though, are these lace culottes! These scalloped hem beauties are from what's become my new go-to online boutique- Miss Tallulah Boutique. I have some super cute summer looks coming up featuring pieces from there, so stay tuned! :)

Thank you for reading and have a great week(end) ahead!
