Raj paisley + chambray + seahorse

Linen- cotton chambray shirt:  Banana Republic, here
No. 2 pencil skirt in raj paisley:  J.Crew, limited sizes here
Double-strand seahorse necklace:  J.Crew, here
Red pumps:  Banana Republic Man Men collection, fall 2011
I think this is my favorite outfit of the summer so far!  This skirt was a total eye-catcher today, receiving compliments everywhere I went.  I had to run into Macy's during my lunch break to pick up my favorite lipstick (Clinique Buttershine in Pink Goddess, flatters every skin tone, you NEED this) and the Clinique sales associate said "I love everything about your outfit!"  How nice was that? It made my day.  To be honest a chambray shirt is quite casual for my work environment, but it's a Friday in July so I thought it would be acceptable with a nice pencil skirt and pumps.

 I've been on the lookout for a chambray shirt for quite a while, and I love the color blue of this one. Heads up though, If you're thinking about this top from Banana Republic, size UP!  This top runs very small.  But I think it will be a go-to piece for the rest of the summer, and I've gotten so many ideas on how to wear it from some of my favorite bloggers. 

Hope everyone had a great Friday!  I'm ready to start my weekend!
