Style Bee | Basic Blues

I’m finally back! I won’t lie, I burned out. Same old story, trying to do too much with too little time. But now I’ve had a chance to regroup and put together some fun things for Style Bee.

The first of which, is this little look. I was doing some planning for the blog and realized that I haven’t posted an outfit that didn’t have at least one black item since this one, almost a year ago! So I challenged myself to put together a look that has no black involved. Et voi la! I’ve obviously been bitten by the midi skirt bug and this linen one from Zara had me at ‘high waisted’.

I once read that it was a fashion faux pas to match your belt to your shoes. Pushaw I say! I do it all the time. It’s a foolproof way to tie your look together without getting into overly matchy territory. Plus, when they’re both neutrals it’s a no brainer as I can never EVER get enough neutrals.

    This is beyond adorable. The background is such a cool contrast as well. You can do no wrong, it’s settled!

    • You are officially my day maker! Thanks so much darling. I have wanted to shoot against that wall for ages, finally had the right day and outfit to make it happen. Hope your weekend is going great! xoxo

    Love your outfit! I think I read that same thing about shoes and belts, but nothing looks better with denim and white than a nice tan belt and pair of shoes! Also, still obsessing over your jewelry. 🙂 Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!

    • Where did we read that I wonder? It’s so funny how those little ‘rules’ stay in the back of your mind. I couldn’t agree more about the combination of tan, white and blue! Thanks lovely, I had a great weekend, hope you did too. xo
