Out The Door

What I’m Wearing

  • Bag: c/o Twisted Orchid
  • Scarf: c/o Obakki
  • Striped oxford camp shirt, skinny belt: Forever 21
  • Jeans: 7 for All Mankind
  • Platforms: Target

Keys in hand, caught on camera – strike a pose! I’m loving this ginormous yellow tote from Mad Bags (via Twisted Orchid). It stole the show in most of the photos from this post because it’s such a pale yellow color that really pops. Tons of pockets and lavish belting – which I also love in a bag..

And it’s animal-friendly.

I’m a Texan, so you don’t hear animal-friendly too often around here (unless you live in Austin). I don’t go out of my way to eat tofu or salads regularly (who am I kidding, I’m a meat-and-potatoes girl thanks to the combined powers of my Texan/Norwegian heritage).

I also love this scarf – although it’s too bad it’s hotter than Hades right now to really wear it for any practical use – but it’s very sheer and airy. I’d been meaning to try the whole looped-scarf trend (albeit a bit late in the game). It’s part of the Obakki foundation collection, so 100% of the proceeds of every purchase goes toward things like mosquito nets in Africa, water purification, books for children, etc. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy!

I’m also obsesssed with camp shirts. I’ve worn them since high school, trends-be-damned! Glad to see they’re popular again, now. If only because I get a bigger selection to choose from!

What do you think of: bright bags, camp shirts, and the scarf-loop trend?

This look was chosen by FabSugar as the Look of The Day on April 30th 2010. FabSugar called it “Crisp Americana” – I couldn’t agree more and I’m so flattered & honored! Thanks FabSugar!

    I LOVE that bag!! the pale yellow is absolute perfection for spring. I've been trying to decide between getting a white, neutral, or pale colored bag for spring and I am so undecided! All I know is I need to ditch this black & gold bag I've been carrying all winter asap!

    I'm all for bright bags. Norwegian heritage… my roots are in Finland. Hmm. Lovely point in common. I like the relaxed yet put-together feel – the belt is in it for a great deal – of this outfit.

      fabulous! we scandinavian girls gotta stick together! 😉

  17. 04.26.2010 / 3:33 pm

    I don't think there's anything that does the comfy-casual-yet-chic look better than a camp shirt! And I am in love with that bag: the shape, the color, the size…perfection!

    I love the outfit, and I hear yah when it comes to scarves being to hot for the Summer… Or Spring, or Fall. (Sigh) living in the South has its price.
