Inspiration from Head to Toe

Casey, of Casey’s Elegant Musings, has coyly captured the effortlessly refined nature I so often associate with retro beach attire. Her ’50s-inspired ensemble which she’s created because “it’s too hot for me to think about wearing anything more complicated,” is indeed, quite simple – but, I think that’s what makes this refreshing get-up so inspirational! The perfect pin-up shorts, in a luxe hue of goldenrod yellow, balance out her cropped top perfectly. And the hat? Well, I think the hat speaks for itself! Over-the-top accessories deserve a place in every girl’s wardrobe, especially when paired with a stylishly simple look. Needless to say, Casey’s easygoing beachwear is as picturesque as a sunny day on the shore.

    I love this outfit so much. I have been wishing for a pair of yellow shorts forever. And that top just pulls it altogether. I just started drafting some patterns myself and I do think I will attempt shorts for the first time ever.
