Sunny Sunday Afternoon

So, yesterday it was surprisingly cool and rained almost ALL DAY.  Went to brunch with friends, shopped, ran some errands - it poured down rain.  I thought - what can I do to cheer myself up in this rain?? 

Brightly-colored mani/pedi?  Check
Comfortable outfit with shorts and lighweight summer blazer?  Check
Fun, bright floral print scarf? Check.   

Then, just as I was about to give up on any chance of sunshine.... it started to peek through the clouds a bit.  Just in time for some outfit pics :)

F21 blazer and tee, AT Loft shorts, NY &Co scarf and earrings, Target wedges (old), Michael Kors watch, D&G aviators, OPI 'Tasmanian devil made me do it" polish  

I love pairing basics (like these plain white chino shorts and lightweight linen blazer) with mixed prints. I think this striped tee and bright patterned scarf are the perfect compliment to each other. I've found that as long as I stick with the same color family and layer on pieces as I go, this look really works.  I also try to keep accessories minimal for this look as there is already quite a bit going on here :)
