from04:07this eyelet pattern so this is04:09open little open weave here which i i04:12love04:12um white just a bright white headed into04:15spring04:16in a sweater and i also love this open04:18eye light eyelet because it just gives04:20you that transition into warmer weather04:22um definitely have to think about where04:23you're wearing underneath04:25so i just threw on michael starr's boat04:27neck it's a04:29it's a lot of coverage though so if04:30you've got something in your wardrobe04:32like a little spaghetti strap the04:33built-in little shelf bra something like04:35that would be04:36perfection and much more feminine than04:38this look but04:39making it work um also back to shorts so04:42kept on04:43um this is the parker a goldie just a04:46different color so this is swap meet04:48so if you're looking for that kind of04:49traditional just like lighter wash going04:51into the spring season this is perfect04:54again this length is the long so it gets04:56you a little bit more length on your04:58thigh04:58and then i i was kind of thinking when i05:00put on this outfit like out to brunch05:02maybe with your girlfriends with your05:04family05:04and so i put on a clog i also think if05:08you're05:08a curvy gal getting a little bit of heel05:10on with your shorts i think makes me05:12feel05:12a little bit longer a little leaner this05:14one unfortunately is online

going into the spring season so05:29this would be my brunch look however i05:32think it would be really easy to leave05:33brunch and then go05:34head off and do your errands for the day05:36and just take this a little bit more05:38casual so what i would do05:40let me grab is i would pop on a little05:43bum bag if you have not picked one of05:44these up yet05:46once i picked it up i have not taken
