Blue and white obsession

I have recently been obsessed with anything blue and white - basically channeling Zooey Deschanel, vintage and china tea patterns. Which brings me to what I wore today. Ever since I went for my first interview at Zara I have been eyeing a skirt with the best pattern and colors (blue and white of course) with bicycles all over! I've been drawn to odd prints with the influence of Rebecca from The Clothes Horse who always has the best clothing with the coolest prints! So I finally purchased the skirt and wore it as soon as I could!



I paired all this blue and white with brown accessories, I love the combination so much for some reason and it was the only color I pictured with this skirt. I also tried a different look instead of a tank top tucked in I opted for this baggy crop top shirt and belted it, I love how it came out.


This bag was one of my first vintage purchases like 4 years ago, I was real into the 60's hippie look and I saw this and couldn't pass it up, I still love it!

Yay love this outfit so much. Navy, white and brown are such classic colors, you can't go wrong with them. I saw this skirt and it's super cute, I wish it was a longer skirt though. I think the skirt with blue, red and white is super adorable too. Ahh Zara is so amazing right now... wish I had tons of money to spare on Zara clothes!!! Love your shorts, you look so wonderful :)

Ohh, what a lovely outfit! I love the print! I actually just bought a dress today that uses that same color blue, and it has some brown in it as well. I love that combo - reminds me of blueberry pie, or forget-me-nots in a garden, or something :)

Is that a tattoo? I never noticed it before! Is there a story behind it?

The print of that skirt is so lovely, I have loved the combination of blue and white since I saw Dita Von Teese in a blue and white china print dress. It always looks so chic and summery!

the bikes are so cute! I work at a vintage thrift shop and have been totally inspired by the delicate blue-white teacups. Plus, my grandmother is obsessed with blue/white (see: her whole house), so it reminds me of her. love the look.
