Wells Fargo Championship

This weekend my parents and I attended the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow for the 10th year in a row! It is something I always look forward to and next year the course will be the host of the PGA Championship. Each year the rules about cell phones have gotten less and less strict so this year we were able to take some pictures on the course (although I did sneak a few last year)! We followed Rickie Fowler for a while and saw him drive the green on two par fours (!!) but it was so crowded with people dressed in head-to-toe orange Puma clothes that we went and watched some of the less popular players who were leading the tournament. I was glad to see Hahn win in the end after reading his story. Just years ago he had quit golf and was selling shoes at Nordstrom and now he's back out with two wins under his belt!

Shirt // Shorts // Sandals (available in Brooks Brothers factory stores)

Since the weather was absolutely perfect, I wore this new strawberry top that I have worn way too many times since I got it with the comfiest shorts that look like nice chinos if you hide the elastic waistband :). For shoes I wore my favorite horse bit sandals because I wanted to look cute even though we were going to be doing a lot of walking (ended up walking six miles)! I don't know how some people managed to walk around in six-inch wedges all day... I probably wouldn't have even made it out of the parking lot haha! These are some of my absolute favorite sandals but the only similar ones I can find online are these ones which are way too expensive. I got these for about $30 at a Brooks Brother's Factory store and have seen them in stock at a few locations recently! 
To incorporate another fun pattern I wrapped this scarf around the handle of my purse. It's something I've been doing a lot recently because I love the fun and unique touch it adds. I've had some luck finding these little tie scarves on sale for under $20 in the sale section at Brooks Brothers! See my other tie scarf looks here and here.

Did any of y'all watch the tournament this weekend?

Derby Day

Dress (only a few left, similar here and here) // Hat (similar on sale for $18) // Scarf on hat // Sandals available in Brooks Brothers Factory stores

I love scrolling through Instagram during the Kentucky Derby because of all the over-the-top fashions. While I won't be attending (maybe some day....) I thought it would be fun to share a Derby inspired outfit. I love this dress because it is a fun take on a shift dress with the ruffle detailing and cute cutout on the back. I know it will be one that I will be wearing to some of the many upcoming graduation parties next month! Since I don't have a unique and over-the-top hat for the Derby, I added this gingham cotton tie scarf to a simple sun hat for a fun touch. I love how such a simple accessory can completely change the look!
Right now it looks like the odds are in favor of Nyquist, so I'll have my money on him this year :)

Let me know who you're betting on this weekend!

Striped Tee + Patriotic Baseball Cap

On most weekends (or days when I don't want to do my hair) I find myself reaching for a hat. I have at least 50 hats (not even exaggerating) from various golf tournaments over the years but it's always fun to have some more fashionable ones to wear with "real clothes" aka not just gym shorts and a t-shirt. This patriotic one from Port Royal Outfitters is the perfect addition to my wardrobe since most of my clothes are red, white, and blue but is a fun change of pace with the worn-in green color rather than my usual navy blue. Paired with a striped tee, simple shorts, and a pair of tennis shoes, it is the perfect go-to outfit. I got these sneakers a while back but have just started wearing them more because they go with most anything and are a fun alternative for Converse! 
One of my favorite outfits that I'm sure you've seen on the blog more than a few times is a striped tee with plain shorts. Once I find an outfit I really like, I tend to wear variations of the outfit by swapping out shoes and accessories to create whole new looks like I did with this one. I can already tell I will be wearing this outfit numerous times throughout this spring and summer!
