Finally

At the beginning of the year, I put together a wishlist. For six months now, I have been searching for the perfect polka dot shirt. I tried this one from Forever 21, but it was too tight on the arms, and too baggy in the  midsection. J. Crew's version fit the bill, but the bill itself was too much for my budget. J. Crew Factory offered a slightly more affordable version. The regular price tag was still more than I was willing to spend, but then finally a few weeks ago the entire store was 50% off and I decided to go for it. 



Top: J. Crew Factory {exact, smaller dots}
Shorts: The Limited (c/o Mom) {similar}
Sandals: Target {exact}

I'll admit it... putting this effort together was really quite effortless. Translation: success! 

Fashion Tip: Don't be afraid to do (or wear) the obvious. When your top has two colors in it (e.g., ivory and navy) coordinate by wearing solid colored bottoms of one of those colors (e.g., navy). Sometimes less is more.

  7. I love "obvious" outfits like this. I think that when we blog, there's pressure to keep trying new things and being innovative and adventurous...but these natural outfits are so wearable, comfortable, and tried & true, you know? I love this :)
