Style Remix: Waterloo Blue Print Sleeveless Blouse + Neon Shorts

This past weekend was probably Seattle's last warm weekend for the year, with sunshine and perfect temperatures in the mid to upper 80's.  We couldn't have asked for better weather to celebrate my boyfriend's niece's first birthday at Gasworks Park.  Gasworks Park is a large public park (20 acres) on the north end of Lake Union with a unique history.  It was formerly the site of the Seattle Gas Light Company's gasification plant for converting coal to gas, and the old equipment still stands in the park.  Today Gasworks Park is a popular spot for Seattle residents to soak up the sun, fly kites, and watch Fourth of July fireworks.  I styled my sleeveless sailboat print blouse (previously seen here) with neon yellow shorts, flat gladiator sandals, my trusty bucket bag, minimal gold jewelry, and aviators for our afternoon in the park.
