Sorry I was late, the first Saturday in July is the big celebration in our little town and I was in the parade!

Janice at the Vivienne Files talks about it all the time, that when you have a clear reference point, you will know something is perfect when you see it. That proved true when I saw this blouse. I even bought it for myself. Since I already have some cropped pants that would work with it, I thought a seasonless white denim skirt would fit in this capsule pretty well. This is probably the last pair of sandals for the year, I think they would do well with a number of bottoms already in the collection. And got to have the classic puka shell necklace for that blouse.

I'm thinking I'll do an extra edition for NAS. I'm not a Nordstrom card holder, so I'll do it as soon as I can see the goodies along with everyone else. It will be fun to see if any splurges fit into the capsule, fantasy shopping since I really don't need much myself. Thanks for looking (do look at how the whole collection is organically turning into something very wearable.)
