 when this top first came in the mail, i opened it up and thought, 
"Oh goodness, am i really going to be able to pull this off?" 
but after seeing it hanging on the back of my door for a week, I finally tried my hand at styling it, and i tell you what, i sort of fell in love. 
it's so bright and great for summer with the boxy look, but the perfect peplum to feminize it. i'm excited to pair it with some white skinnies next.
it sort of makes me wish our back patio were finished and that i lived somewhere with enjoyable weather so i that i could plan a summer tea party.
anyone want to invite me to their home not in arizona? i'll throw you a tea party...

You are such a babe! I think this has been my favorite look so far. That blouse has me drooling!

You have to go to Seattle! I am an AZ native myself but my husband is originally from Seattle and last year we traveled there TWICE for elective trips. So much to do and I love the weather change.
My second suggestion would be San Francisco. We honeymooned there and fell in love with the city. Again, wonderful weather and so much to do :)
Can't wait to see where you end up going.

That top would look great with white skinnies! You are just so pretty :) San Fran is a great suggestion! I'm coming to Phoenix at the end of August and I'm pretty sure I'm going to die.

MARYLAND. GO THERE. D.C. the coast, baltimore, really just walking around the East coast can do wonders.
But if you really want to explore, I hear Ireland is pretty ;)
