Simple is good

Hey hey it's Friday!  And the weekend ahead isn't as crazy as last week's was for me so I am very happy about that!  Today's outfit is pretty simple.  And in fact, it may even be a combination I've worn on the blog before, I'm too lazy to go look.  Sometimes the simplest outfits are the ones I love best though!

I wear this necklace a lot.  Practically all the time you've probably noticed.  The thing I love about it is how versatile it is.  It's from the La Coco collection from Stella and Dot, which is meant to be mixed and matched and played with.  It's one of the best purchases I've ever made I think, because I can make this work with just about anything.

These sandals are one of my favorite things ever too, I haven't worn them much this summer because they are on their last legs.  Today they were just begging to be worn though, so I happily obliged.

We met a couple of friends for a beer at our favorite bar last night to celebrate National IPA Day.  It was last minute, but it was nice and the sun was already going down when we got to the patio, so it wasn't even terribly hot out.  I'd say it was summer at it's best!  Hope you all have wonderful weekends!

Outfit rundown:
Shirt - Maurices
Skirt - LOFT, thrifted
Sandals - Kohls (old)
Necklace - La Coco from Stella and Dot
Bracelets - S&D, Premier, Charming Charlie
Earrings - Charming Charlie


  1. An impromptu patio night sounds so nice! Happy Friday, Beth! I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I love spontaneous get togethers! Patios are so much fun and definitely a great part of summer. Have a great weekend!

  3. Very pretty outfit. I like when we use contrast: here, the top is sleek and smooth and the skirt is ruched and wrinkly. On a subliminal level, that adds visual interest.

    Being the workhorse I am, I couldn't agree more with you about celebrating Friday and the end of the week. Whew!

  4. I love that necklace! It really DOES work with everything! Hope you have a lovely weekend, Beth!

  9. Great look! I love that it's so simple! And I agree with the necklace and some very similar necklaces and they are SO versatile! I love pairing them with all my outfits to dress them up a bit more.

  10. Nothing wrong with a simple and sweet combination. I really love this. Adding the necklaces really polished it off. You look comfortable and chic for the start of the weekend. Hope it's a good one, Beth! :)


  11. This look works great together. I really like the striped tee. Sounds like your summer is going swimmingly. Hope your weekend is equally awesome.

  13. Beth! I really like this outfit on you. Great length on the skirt. You should wear that length more often. Hope all is well. Beer sounds good right about now. Have a great weekend. Dawn suitcase vignettes

  14. I love this classic and sleek ensemble. You look terrific in the stripes, and your accessories hit just the right note. I don't have anything from Stella & Dot but I see and admire it on style bloggers all the time.

  15. This looks so lovely on you! I love all of the texture in your skirt. Isn't it wonderful on summer evenings when the temp cools down and you're able to enjoy a night with friends? Sounds like so much fun! Have a lovely weekend!

  16. I agree that sometimes simple is best, especially when it's hot outside! Besides, stripes are always a good choice! I hope you had a good weekend!

  17. National IPA day?! How did I miss that?

    Love that necklace, and I can definitely see how it would go with everything :)
