The Tiny Heart: Simplicity

5.01.2012

Simplicity




Chambray Shirt-Target (similar), Shorts-Rampage (cute option), Wedges-Target (love these), Belt-H&M (similar), Necklace-Pure Jewel Designs, Sunnies-Ray Ban Jr. 
 
If you follow me on Pinterest, this outfit may look familiar. I recently pinned a photo of Reese Witherspoon wearing a chambray shirt and white shorts. I loved the simplicity of it and thought it would be the perfect outfit for a walk on the beach. 

You guys would be proud of me...there were tons of people on the boardwalk during this photo shoot and I didn't freak out! I have since concluded I care more about people I actually know seeing me take photos than strangers. I figure the strangers won't ask questions!

PS I did a little bit of revamping to the look of the blog. My outfit might be simple, but html is not! Hope you guys like the new changes.

  1. Gotta love anything Reese wears; must be nice to have a personal stylist at your disposal :) Love the changes you've made with the blog... html makes me nauseous, so I hired mine out haha.

    1. Oh, to be rich and famous! Haha, this took me hours to do (most of that time was spent reading tutorials) but I'm so proud that I was able to do it. Your blog looks awesome though!

  4. Perfect beach day outfit! Very cute. I agree strangers are easier to take photos in front of than people you actually know. I get awkward if it's someone besides Josh taking the photos..lol

  14. I'm a sucker for white shorts, especially when coupled with chambray! I have a similar pair that I usually combine with a green top or something else that's colorful! Loving your outfit - so summery! x

  20. Oh girl. I don't know html at ALL! But my fiance is a computer whiz (how old did that just make me sound?). I LOVE this simple and chic outfit! I am going to have to steal it from you ;-) And congrats on getting over the public photo hump. It is a hard one to get over. But once you stop caring you find out that it is so much easier and your photos are very pretty today.

    1. Thanks! Feel free to steal the outfit. I stole it from Reese after all :) I'm not sure I'm over my public photo fear yet but I'm trying!
