Watermelon Stripes

I hope everyone had a restful and reflective Memorial Day weekend! This weekend, we went to a couple of fun places in Los Angeles, which I am looking forward to sharing soon on my blog! In the meantime, it feels like summer is now in full swing and I'm very excited about summer vacation being just around the corner! Like many, watermelons are one thing that I strongly associate with summertime. I'm looking forward to making my favorite appetizer, which is comprised of cubed watermelon, feta cheese, and a little mint or basil on a toothpick and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Just thinking about it is making my mouth water! Well, I haven't had any watermelon to eat yet this season but I have worn quite a bit of watermelon print clothing already! New to my collection is this watermelon print blouse that I just got on clearance at J. Crew Factory. They had a great sale last week and I also picked up several other goodies that I am waiting for to arrive!

I was searching in my closet for the perfect thing to wear with my new watermelon shirt and, at first, I thought I would just go with something simple like a pair of jeans or a seersucker shorts. But then, I stumbled on this watermelon stripe pleated skirt from last year. Because watermelon is already in the name, I figured it would be the perfect match for my top and, as it turned out, it was! While many watermelon prints are more red in hue, this one features pink tones, so it was a perfect match with my skirt from last year. I suppose this outfit represents something old from last summer, paired with something new that I will look forward to wearing this summer!

  1. This is really a lot of fun! I wouldn't have thought to pair them together but with the top being a small print it works beautifully!

  2. Hi Katie
    Yum. I love watermelon and that sounds yummy with the cheese and balsamic. These patterns really look like they were meant to go together. The fruit shirt and the colors of the watermelon look so good! I love fruit prints too and am looking for a cute dress!
