I'm a planner, a list maker, a play by the rules kind of girl. Spontaneous trips to places I've never been just don't happen for me.
But I also thought I didn't like avocados for the first 20 years of my life, and lately I can't get enough (guac and sangria on a Thursday night? Best. Ever.) So, when a friend called up to see if I wanted to go on a road trip this weekend out to the Okanagan... well, why not? 
And wouldn't you know, it was a total blast. Maybe I need to step out of my comfort zones more often! 
Felt Panama Hat- Pendleton via 3 Vets, Taupe Cardigan- J. Crew, Black Cami- FXXI, Cut-off Shorts- American Eagle, Booties- Liz Claiborne via Winners
And I found my hat! 
For the beauties that follow me on Twitter you'll know that I've spent the better part of the last few months on a hunt for a felt panama hat, in the style of Rag & Bone... but at a fraction of the price! I was directed to the camping/outdoor enthusiast store 3 Vets a few weeks ago and finally got a chance to stop in. 
And there it was, this Pendleton piece of perfection. I cannot wait to style it up for Fall!


  1. i just love this outfit!! super cute :)

  2. I'm a total planner too and hate spontaneity. I bet your trip was super fun though. And glad you found your hat!

    xo, alison*elle

  3. yay for hat-finding! It's a good one, so good thing it didn't disappear forever!

    And I'm a super-planner too, but random get-aways are pretty awesome! Glad you had fun!

  4. The hunt paid off - that hat looks great!

    Hope you had a fantastic trip to the interior

  5. That hat really is perfection... It looks like the hunt definitely paid off! I love that you paired it with denim cut-offs, too. The juxtaposition of an easy summer look with that killer retro-style (dare I say, Humphrey Bogart-esque) hat fabulous! So jealous of your weekend trip to the Okanagan... I have the distinct pleasure of going to Winnipeg this coming weekend, which really doesn't compare :P

  6. I love this look! its so relaxed and comfortable, but looks so put together and chic!
