OOTD: Happy National Ice Cream Day!

Do you know what day it is?

Not just your regular old Sunday, but National Ice Cream Day!  We have to celebrate...

With an outfit, of course!  

And some ice cream from Red Elephant Chocolate in the Third Ward.

Dark Blue Vertical Striped Button Down // Ice Cream Novelty Purse // Ripped Boyfriend Jeans (mine are from Windsor years ago, but almost identical version HERE) // kate spade Going Places Metro Watch // kate spade Set in Stone Enamel Hinged Bangle // Pink Earrings (old from Charming Charlie, but THIS is a cute pink pair of kate spade saleeeee earrings!) // Gray Malin for Sperry Cloud South Beach Sneaker // Sunglasses (old from Charming Charlie, but THIS is the pair I really want!)

So a little back story about my choice of ice cream...  I used to work at Red Elephant Chocolate during the summer while I was home from college.  I knew it would be the perfect place to grab some ice cream to celebrate this holiday!  I got cow tracks, which was chocolate ice cream with peanut butter and chocolate (what tasted like Reese's) mixed in.  Really, anything you choose at Red Elephant is delicious.  I always have to get a few truffles, so pictured below are: caramelized banana, bourbon old fashioned, chai, and salted caramel whiskey (that's my all-time fave)!

As for the outfit, it all kind of fell together right before my eyes!

I had recently purchased these Gray Malin for Sperry sneakers.  They feature one of his AMAZING images of South Beach in Miami.  Since I can't afford any of his art, nor do I have the wall space at the moment, I just haaaad to grab a pair of his shoes when he launched the collection!  Go have a look at his photography because it's serious eye candy.  I love how he has been printing on nontraditional surfaces too!  Not only does he have a line with Sperry, he has beach towels, Swell bottles, phone cases, serving trays, cocktail kits, and more.  Next on my list of must-have items is his coffee table book!

For National Ice Cream Day, I knew I had to throw on this ice cream shaped novelty bag I recently purchased.  It's super inexpensive at $12.99 and Prime shipping, which is awesome.  I got compliments on it everywhere I went!

Also very reasonably priced with Prime shipping, I'm wearing this striped button down.  I love how casual this top is and I'm excited to wear it later on this year in Florida with shorts and a floppy hat.  I think it will be perfect to create a super cute beachy look.

Every time I wear these jeans, I get questions about them!  I knew when I bought them that they would be keepers.  Unfortunately they are a couple years old, so they are no longer available.  But I linked something similar!

For accessories, I wore my favorite kate spade Going Places watch that has the map of Europe on the face.  I always pair my watches with a couple bangles, so I threw on a couple from kate.  These are the white set in stone bangle and a striped idiom bangle from last summer.  My earrings and sunglasses are old from Charming Charlie, but I linked similar items!

PS:  I'm getting these great shots with my newest lens that I'm v excited about.  It's the Canon 50mm f/1.8 and I am in looooove.

I hope you're celebrating National Ice Cream Day in the best way possible - with your favorite flavor!
