Happy Friday, and happy first day of July! My apologies if you tried to access the site last week and couldn’t get in. I was down for a few days, but I’m back and I’m better! 😉 I’m so excited for 4th of July weekend, and so excited to get back to my usual outfit of the day posts! I plan on relaxing, soaking up the sun, going to a cookout or two, and hanging out with my friends. This weekend the sales are popping, so be sure to check them out, whether online, or in person!
You know how you walk into a store, looking for something to wear, and then you successfully find your whole entire outfit in that one store?! Best feeling ever! This is one of those outfits. I went into the new Zara in Pentagon City after work one day, looking for an outfit to wear to Bey’s concert. I left with this jacket, tank top, and these shorts. As well as a few other basics. I actually wore this jacket, with a white body suit, and an olive green midi skirt to the concert, but the outfit in this post was the backup outfit that I decided to just save for later. 😉
As evidenced in this previous post, y’all know I love a good bomber! I started eyeing floral bombers in the spring, so when I saw this one, I had to have it. I love the mix of neutrals with the colors. It’s also lightweight enough to wear in the summer (with the sleeves slightly pushed back).
I noticed the tank top and shorts shortly after the jacket, and knew everything would look good together. Since everything is neutral, I can wear them with anything, which is so important!
Tip: When you’re out shopping, look for pieces that you like, as well as pieces that look good together. That’ll guarantee that you actually wear what you bought, as well as increase your chances of wearing it again.
I generally pull this Kate Spade bag out during the spring and summer, so I was excited to pull it out for the first time all year for this outfit! The bag perfectly matched one of the colors in the jacket, as well as my toes. 🙂

Tanks Christine! 🙂
I have a black floral bomber which I love, but I am really crushing on the colors in yours! The palette is so soft and spring like. It looks great paired with the neutral tones of the rest of your outfit. Your sandals are fabulous and I love your bag!
So chic and stylish! Pretty!
Love a good bomber jacket! I’m wearing one today. 🙂
Thanks Tamara! They are my fav! 🙂
That jacket is da bomb!
