Style Remix: Mint Crops + Knit Blazer + Waterloo Blue Print Sleeveless Blouse

I readily admit that I am an impulse buyer, and that my favorite pieces in my closet are impulse purchases.  Today's featured item is a great example of an impulse buy that was also a great deal.  I found this adorable sailboat print blouse while browsing at Target a few weeks ago, and at $19.99 it was a decent weight (not see-through) and quality.  I decided to take it home and see what kind of outfit I could make with existing pieces in my closet.  This blouse contains yellow, pink, cobalt, and mint printed sailboats, and therefore has many color pairing options.  I have been loving mint and yellow combos lately, and decided to try pairing my mint crops (previously seen here) and my yellow knit blazer (seen before here) with this blouse.  Then I added a yellow belt, navy pumps, and a navy bag to keep the overall outfit from being too bright.  However, I think a white or bright colored bag and pumps could look great too!

How would you style a printed blouse for summer?  Thanks so much for reading and I hope you have a great rest of your week!
