Just before I moved to California for summer, me and my friends attended an Italian festival in Wilmington, Delaware. It's a yearly celebration or should I say a feast! It's one of those street and very neighborly events that you don't want to miss. Plus, Italians are just the best when it comes to celebrating their culture (trust me, I know. ;))
Now about that cheap chic summer look. I got this Coral Reef Button Up Blouse at Target, and it's really unlike everything I owned before. See, here's a little confession - I hate wearing anything with buttons on it, it's just a little something I never liked as a kid. Playing with buttons is not my thing. Now that I'm older, it may seem silly but I still avoid them as much as I can. When I reach for button up shirts, I usually try to make sure I get one with a double lining that covers the buttons. Or at least I pick one with the ones that don't stand out. I know, you probably think I'm crazy, it's just one of those triggers, different for everybody, and this is mine.
Anyway, I got this blouse and immediately fell in love. It's super affordable - $20, and the quality is unbelievable. It's really like Target's motto: Expect More, Pay Less :) I already got so many compliments on it, I think it's perfect for this blissful California weather.
As for the white shorts, those are from JC Penney , same price range as the blouse, and I got them few years ago. I think they looked great paired with a marble-like shirt.
What do you think?
PL: Ostatni tydzien przed moim wyjazdem do Kalifornii wybralam sie ze znajomymi na wloski festiwal odbywajacy sie co roku w Wilmington, Delaware. To jeden z takich ulicznych, bardzo sasiedzkich wydarzen, ktorego nie wypada opuscic. Poza tym, Wlosi sa bardzo weseli, pozytywni (a przy tym glosni) i warto z nimi celebrowac ich kulture.
Na te okazje ubralam swoj nowy nabytek z Targetu - bluzke z marmurowym wzorem.
Zwierze sie Wam tutaj tez troche z czegos, czego bardzo nie lubie. Od dziecka nie znosilam nosic wszystkiego co mialo na sobie guziki. Samo slowo wywoluje u mnie jakas niechec. Sama nie wiem skad sie to wzielo, ale juz tak mam. Oczywiscie z wiekiem i dojrzewaniem troche mi sie to zmienio, ale nadal jesli moge, to ich unikam. Zazwyczaj siegam po takie koszule, ktore maja guziki ukryte pod materialem, tak jak w przypadku tej bluzki. Wiem, to dziwne, ale kazdy ma jakies upodobania i to jedno z moich ;)
