"Grandpa on Vacay" Chic!

Wearing: Thrifted top, PB&J Boutique pants (buy here!), AMI Clubwear sandals, Thrifted bag

Today I wanted to switch things up a little bit and go for a summery "grandpa on vacation" look (lol). I love wearing tropical printed button-up tops during the summer (guilty pleasure I guess?) so I try to use every opportunity I can to fit them into my wardrobe. I love stripes and florals together so I figured it would be the perfect mix to pair one of my tropical tops with these awesome railroad stripe cropped trousers from PB&J boutique. I'm not much of a pants in the summer person because it gets extremely hot here in Florida, and I can already say these are the perfect summer pant, because it was probably about 90 degrees when I took these photos and I felt perfectly fine!  

To break this look up a bit and create an equal balance between a menswear-inspired and feminine look, I tied my shirt in the front and let a bit of midriff show (found my inspiration of this from Carrie Bradshaw, she did this with so many random outfits and made it work perfectly so I thought I'd give it a shot), and I also wore some heeled sandals and my big straw bag. Definitely a bit of a different look for me, but of course I always love messing around and seeing what kind of different looks I can create!
