Shorts - available here in 3 colors (on sale).
Tote - very similar here, more options here, here, here, and here.

The Elephant parade tee is one of my all time favorite graphic t-shirts from J.Crew. I love it with the Old Navy Belted high-rise linen-blend shorts, J.Crew gladiator sandals, and a straw tote for an easy warm weather casual outfit. My etched cuff is older from Forever21 but I found a great copy in silver that I linked to above and below.

Outfit Post - Mint, White, Yellow

Jackie shell - available here (try white, canary, or neon seamist colors). 
Necklace - options I like here, here, and here.
Jeans - available here (mine are older).
Sandals - similar here (mine are retail version), I also like these.
Clutch - similar color here, here, and here

Mint, yellow, and white creates a refreshing color palette to wear from midwinter through fall.  I pulled out some older pieces from my closet for this simple outfit inculding J.Crew's classic Jackie shell, toothpick jeans in white, silver sandals, and a bright yellow clutch. I like the way the modern necklace shape and colors add some edge to the neckline of the classic shell.

Create a similar color palette with these new arrivals from J.Crew Factory. I especially like the Textured patio skirt and Stone drops necklace in the neon kiwi colorway. The necklace is an inexpensive way to add yellow to your outfit if you don't have a yellow purse or clutch. 


  1. Short-sleeve sweater (sea spray color)
  2. Textured patio skirt
  3. Stone drops necklace 
  4. Mirror metallic ankle strap sandals
