Sometimes putting together a cute outfit can be so easy. I saw the photo on the right on Pinterest and knew I had the pieces from this year and last. The pants are Talbots "RELAXED CHINOS - STRIPE", sold out but sure to come back soon. I like that they are tapered at the leg and have a cuff that adjusted depending on the heel. (a feminine differential)
The knit top is Venus - "Relaxed V-Neck Top". I love the way it gathers at the bottom and can be worn long/short - tucked/not. It also travels well.
A white pair of spring/summer sandals are a must for the beach and pool. They can be dressy for a lunch out or casual for the market.
