Today's look is pretty much the "summer" version of my Christmas Eve outfit two years ago. The inspiration started with two fruit charms - a lemon and a watermelon - that I layered together on a yellow cross-body purse. I was then inspired to pair that with a green stripe dress, finally adding a bow belt, yellow pumps, and a green cardigan. The end result is so much fun and has a bit of a Kate Spade vibe to it (on a much smaller budget). You may just find me wearing it on repeat this summer!
