Easy Breezy - Hapa Time

Easy Breezy

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

The weather was so exactly right, that standing in the sun and feeling the
 soft breeze was as delicious as eating a bowl of my favorite ice cream.
Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket My hair looks SO red in the sun! I am the only one in my family with warm toned hair. It's really ridiculous! And while this is my natural color, when I do dye it (usually during the winter), I love to dye it cool toned dark brown. Photobucket Photobucket New top - Pacsun, shorts - American Eagle, purse - Style&Co, necklace - Express, ring - Aldo, belt - Aeropostle, flip flops - Forever 21

This is a really nice easy breezy California girl look :) With the netted top (found it on sale at Pacsun for about $18 after looking literally everywhere for the perfect cream colored boat neck one), the cut-off shorts and the chunky necklace from Express too, it just felt right.

Can you tell I'm wearing a nude colored bandeau underneath? I had to laugh as I noticed a few men staring at my top, probably trying to figure out if I had anything under or not. No DUH, I want to say. I am not that scandalous! Perhaps I stand outside of a church in a hot red dress, but I would never walk around in a see through shirt without anything under ha ha ha. This top is also great as a cover up over a bikini at the beach. Very breathable and pretty :)

P.S Two days left to enter the Romwe giveaway, and 2 more giveaways coming up too!

  3. hahaha! I honestly didn't really notice the bandeau part. It doesn't really look too see through in the photos but after your mention I can see a little of it. It looks fine to me! And so funny with the men staring at you. hahah

    I agree this is such a california girl look! It looks perfect for the beach or shopping!! I want a sweater like that! So cute

  44. Wow, you are absolutely gorgeous! The outfit is casual yet chic. I read your bio and your "how I got started" post too. I just started outfit posts and was really hesitant to do so because like you said lots of people do it and look just perfect. But it's nice to know that I'm not the only one to feel that way. And I've discovered that doing outfit posts helps me to be more creative with my wardrobe. My daughters are half Asian/half Caucasian, and their hair is red in the sunlight too.
