Casual Chinos {Collab with Tori of Prep for a Day and Jessica of Polished and Pumped}

Thursday, June 25, 2015

Last week, Tori from Prep for a Day, Jessica from Polished and Pumped, and I decided to do a fun collab with each other and we were trying to decide on what to do. For all of y'all who don't "know" me (as in know me in real life), you probably don't know that I am extremely indecisive with like everything so that made picking a theme hard. We decided on Chinos and a top, aka my summer uniform.

Chino shorts are probably my favorite ever. I bought my first pair a few summers ago and my collection has grown tremendously since then (I think I have 13 pairs?). My favorite places to buy them are Lilly Pulitzer, J Crew, Vineyard Vines, and Old Navy. I tend to overbuy shorts and not buy enough shirts to go with them.

During my trip to Kiawah, I went to the Lilly store and tried to only buy shirts (I did walk out with a new pair of chinos- oops!). I found the Michele Top in Scuba to Cuba and I love it. The fabric is so soft and comfy not to mention the print is so so cute!

Top- Lilly Pulitzer
Chinos- J Crew (last season, similar)
Sandals- Tory Burch
Watch- Kate Spade
Bracelets- David Yurman (old, similar)

Check out how Tori and Jessica styled their chinos here and here.
