Top: Zara, not online, but probably still available in store
Pants: J. Crew (on sale!)
Purse: Old Navy
Shoes: Target
Bracelets: Bauble Bar (here, here)

I hope your week is going well!  Some of you may recognize these pants from my fitting room picture a few weeks ago when I was deciding whether or not to get them.  I got them and I'm so glad I did. I love the colors and they are so comfortable!  I don't wear a lot of print so this is a big step outside my comfort zone.  

I toned the pants down with this white top from Zara and paired them with my new favorite purse.  I think I've mentioned before that I like try a trend cheaply to ensure it is practical for me before investing in a more expensive piece.  I've seen a lot of the bucket bags around and really like them on other people, but wasn't sure how practical it would be for me.  I saw a few other bloggers with this Old Navy bag and decided to give it a shot.  I love this bag!  It was less than $35 (but doesn't look cheap) and is the perfect summer bag!  I actually thinking about getting another color...  As for the bucket bag trend, I just don't carry enough on a daily basis to fill it.  I actually had to stuff a scarf in it for these pictures so the bag didn't look empty!  For those of you who are looking for an inexpensive bucket bag, I highly recommend this one!

Have a great day!
