What I Wore in a Week, Trying out the Bucket Hat Trend

Happy Friday friends! I hope you had a restful week, and you’re able to go into the weekend already feeling a bit refreshed.

My goal for the weekend is to stay off of my phone as much as possible, and really settle into rest and relaxation.

The weather is supposed to be really nice, and David and his brother are thinking about taking Kit and her cousins backyard camping tomorrow so I’m excited to see her all snuggled up in a sleeping bag in the tent.

We were already thinking of taking our girls on a 1 night camping trip at the end of the summer, and this will be a good way to get her used to the idea of camping.

It’s so fun to see her experiencing all the new things that come with growing up.

But back to the outfits, this week I was kind of all over the place with what I wore. Some days I felt like dressing up a bit, and then other days I never changed out of my comfy clothes (did you see my athleisure post here?).

I just kind of went with the flow, and did what felt right each day… which is kind of a metaphor for how I’m dealing with life at the moment yes?

Let’s get to it:

I felt like dressing up a bit this day, but this dress is the perfect dress to wear when you feel like dressing up, but you also really want to be comfortable. It’s made of a lightweight sweatshirt type of material so it’s just really comfy. It runs a bit big, but I like that look so I ordered a small. If you want it to be a bit more fitted, order a size down.

I didn’t really leave the house this day so I didn’t even put on shoes, and I wore this beautiful sweater jacket all day because it’s been a bit cold in our house because of the AC. I love the combination of a sweater or cardigan over shorts, and this time of year is perfect for it.

I’m not going to lie, this outfit makes me feel like I’m in the South of France on my way to the local outdoor market. One can wish right? I LOVE the combination of the stripes, the linen skirt, and the canvas tennis shoes. It’s just such a classic combo that works so well. This top is a new release at Everlane, and I really love it. I would definitely order a size down if you want a more typical fit because it does run a bit big. I kind of like it a bit slouchy, so I kept the small that I ordered. It also has more of a weight to it than a traditional tee so keep that in mind.

Shoe review here


This dress you guys. THIS DRESS. I’ve been waiting for it to come since early May, but it got lost in the mail. Off On was SO kind about the whole process though, and they sent me a new one express. I don’t really ever wear pink, but something about this dress called to me when I saw it on their website, and it’s even better in person. Definitely stay true to size in this one though (and maybe even size up one size). I always order a size down from Etsy shops, but in this case I should have gone for my true size because the chest is quite small. Everything fits okay, but there is a gap in the buttons at the chest for me. I’ll just sew it up so it doesn’t gape, but hopefully I can save you from having to do the same. 😉

This was another loungewear day for me. We ended up being in the pool most of the day, and I just never ended up putting on “real clothes.” But I’m not sad about it because these shorts are some of the comfiest shorts I have ever put on my body (and they only cost about $15). They definitely aren’t suitable for wearing to the grocery store or out and about as they are pretty sheer, but they’re perfect for lounging or as a swimsuit cover up like I did here. I stayed true to size.

Also, let’s talk this bucket hat for a second… It’s a trend I’ve gone back and forth on since last summer, and I just wasn’t sure if it was for me, but now that I have this Madewell bucket hat I am convinced. It’s just such a nice option for days when you don’t want to deal with a big straw hat, but you want to wear something a bit cuter than a baseball hat. Love!

pant review here

These pieces are all pretty spendy, so I’m linking to some more affordable options below:


This outfit is the kind of outfit I want to be wearing all of the time. I just love the classic color combo, the shape of the silhouettes, and the overall simplicity of the look. The shirt is by Elizabeth Suzann, so sadly no longer available (I linked to another, and more affordable, option). The pants I’ve reviewed in the past, and you can find that review here.

The final outfit I’m showing you is straight up not interesting ha! But a lot of you have expressed interest in me showing more of these kinds of outfits so I thought I would share it even though there’s not much to it. Maybe this makes me a bit over the top, but even when I’m just wearing workout clothes as real clothes, I like to make everything coordinated, and stick to my typical color palette. That way, even though I’m wearing workout gear (or loungewear), I’m still wearing an outfit I like, and that feels like me. I also try to find pieces that don’t look so obviously workouty (yes I just made that word up) so that the overall outfit is still very minimal and cool… just because I’m wearing workout shorts, doesn’t mean I have to abandon my tastes and pick up the rainbow pair with a logo printed across the butt (I’m not judging anyone who is into that… go for it! That’s just not my thing). You get what I’m saying? Yeah you do.


Well that’s all I’ve got for you guys. As I was writing this, Oscar (my mini dachshund) came over and started snuggling me so I’m going to sign off and give him a proper snuggle.

But tell me, which of these outfits resonates most with your personal style aesthetic? Let me know in the comments!

    As much as I love pretty dresses and the skirt outfit I’m definitely a day six dresser. I’ve been attached to wearing my ES Petra crop with ES Flos any time I have to leave the house and it makes me feel so easy and put together. I sold my one khaki skirt and am not looking to buy any dresses really because I just don’t feel like wearing them anymore with what is going on even though I’m going back to work soon. I’ve worn a dress on the first day of school for the last seven years but as I go into year eight my clothes are my armor and pants give me that feeling more than anything else. Have a great weekend.

      The ES pieces are so perfect for that aren’t they? I agree with you about them feeling so easy. I love that easy, linen pieces like that have the ease of athletic wear, while looking a lot more put together. That’s an interesting perspective on your clothing being your armor… I hadn’t thought of it like that, but I can see how you’d feel that way!

    Hi Karin <3

    Very recently discovered your blog through Pinterest and have been obsessing over it for the past couple of days. That new stalker popping up in your analytics is likely me.

    I'm really curious to know how you organise your wardrobe. Like, how do you store all your linen, silk and other easy-creasers and do you hang or stack your trousers and jeans? Do you have a dreamy walk-in or are you a KonMari type of person?

    Yes, I am a nosy person and I am dying to seeeee X

      Haha! Well welcome! As far as my closet goes, it’s nothing worth showing because it’s a tiny little closet that I share with my husband (my off season stuff goes in our guest bedroom closet) so everything is just kind of shoved in there. I need to get it more organized actually!
