Happy MondayHow was your weekend? I hope it was just fabulous.

I am so excited to share with you my favorite look from this weekend! Paolo and I had quite a few errands to run {one of which included grocery shopping}. I knew I would be in and out of stores, where the A/C can be quite frigid, but I wanted to be styled casual and chic {because you never know who you might run into!}. I immediately grabbed my favorite chambray top, which is my go-to for comfy! To add some chic-ness, I paired with lace shorts {I sized up for a looser fit} and a ‘hidden’ statement necklace. I wanted to keep the look casual, so I tucked my necklace underneath my shirt, where just a bit peeped out. As a finishing touch, I added this gold braided belt from Target, which I am absolutely obsessed with! I love that the gold is weaved in with black, and did I mention what a great price it was {only $13!}?

I am totally in love with chambray and lace right now … what are you crushing on?!

Thank you for reading!

    I love those lace shorts Monique. They look great paired with the chambray button-down. I layered a fun chambray top over a floral dress today, if you want to take a peek. =)

    Happy Monday! Ada. =)
