dots + stripes

I don't know why I even bother planning my outfits before I go to sleep. Lately, after I shut my eyes, images of clothes whirlwind through my mind and come together to form the outfit I really want to wear the next day. I wonder though whether this outfit came together because it's another combination of two neglected items. I got this shirt months ago, but haven't worn it on the blog yet. I got this sweater at the end of February, as seen in my budget post. I couldn't wait any longer to wear it.

I should credit Heidi for this great purchase. I loved it from the moment I saw her wearing it in this post. I've been really good about not rushing out to get something when I see it on someone else, but I slipped up this time. In my defense, a light grey crewneck longsleeve sweater was on my wishlist, and it was only $10!

  2. I'm not sure if it's my laziness or lack of creativity lately, but I have not been dreaming up any outfits. I'm pretty sure everything I've worn this week was copy cats from Pinterest or other bloggers...
    I love what you came up with today though. It's simple but still looks perfectly put together! I actually had that shirt you're wearing and wore it once, then brought it back because it didn't fit exactly right. Shh. Don't tell!

  3. Ok, I am really glad I am not the only one that thinks of outfits just before going to sleep. Sometimes I make notes in my phone so I don't forget them! That is such a cute sweater! What a great find!

  4. So I clicked on the link to the blouse and I was thinking how pretty it was, and how I really liked it, but there were so many options of different colors and prints. Then I realized that I totally bought it last weekend. The navy one with the little dots. I'm a genius!

    Also, I'm very tempted to order this sweater. My gray sweater is a little darker and I've been thinking I need to replace it. And for $13! It's not available at any of the stores near me, and shipping is $7! Not cool! I'll have to keep an eye out.

  7. You always nail pants with button-down shirts layered underneath sweaters. It's those Outfit Formulas I talk about all the time. I gave you a couple of shot-outs on the blog. Loving this Outfit. That Sweater - just GORG!!

  8. So, I have a sweater just like this one from Kohl's (Elle brand), and I love the soft stripes under it. I have a white and gray blouse that might work well for a recreation. As always, you provide me with achievable inspiration.

  9. It is a great sweater so no wonder you loved it and had to buy it. The peach is really pretty layered under too. A light gray sweater is a nice addition to your closet because it will go with so much! You just reminded me that I have a light gray sweater with polka dots that's been neglected!

  12. Oooh, the colors and textures here are so interesting! I like the dots of your sweater with the stripes on your shirt. Is the shirt you're wearing sheer? It looks really cute!
