Today my family and I drove up to our family's house in one of Panama's mountain areas to enjoy the weekend together. On the way up the mountain, I always enjoy rolling my window down and enjoying the cool breeze (Panama city is always very hot, so I really enjoy the cool weather up the mountain)

It's always so magical to come up here. The weather is wonderful, the sound of the leaves and river is relaxing, and spending quality time with family is priceless :)

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this striped top:

  1. Love the hat and glad you had lots of fun! :)

  2. i love your simple black and white stripes, and that cloche is just gorgeous!

  3. Your eyes are so pretty in every picture. Such a lovely color, my my! As is that hat of yours-- the funnest hat I have seen around, I bet. As for your gorrilla, he seems fuzzy and amazing. :)

  4. You look gorgeous, like always. Love your pink hat. And OMG that giant monkey is awesome!

  5. Hello Reema! Thank you so much for commenting on my blog! I'm so flattered to give you a couple of ideas on how to wear that skirt:

    1. Try pairing it with a white top and orange or yellow flats! Finish it off with a brown belt and neutral accessories and you have a comfy chic outfit.

    2. You can also pair it with an orange top or a yellow top! Once again, you can wear neutral accessories like beige heels/wedges and a brown purse.

    3. Pair it with a jean top and some brown boots for a western-ish cute outfit.

    4. For when the weather gets cooler, pair it with a turtleneck (try white, orange, yellow, or beige) and wear it with brown tights and boots!

    5. For a more work appropriate outfit, try pairing it with a white collar shirt and a brown blazer. Finish it off with beige pumps and geek chic glasses!

    Those are just 5 ideas off the top of my head. Let me know if you need any more help. Once again, thank you so much for visiting my blog and commenting :)

    Have a great day :)

  6. Gorilon is too cute! I love seeing him in the photos. Love your hat! Very chic chick! :)
