Today's Everyday Fashion: Instant Yes

One of my worst shopping traits is indecisiveness. I struggle with making predictions about whether I'll like something years from now - statement pieces and simple basics, alike. Today's top was an instant yes moment though. I love electric blue and coral together, and the tassels sealed the deal. I'm showing two similar ways to wear it - one a bit more dressed up than the other. Note: I would recommend going a size up on this top - my usual size was way too small in the neck!  

Top: J.Crew Factory, $34
Jeans: Gap, $32 (similarsimilarsimilar)

Speaking of J.Crew Factory, they JUST posted an almost-identical dress as the one I wore to a beach wedding a couple weeks ago (right picture). I've noticed that with J.Crew Factory - sometimes they come out with the same designs as J.Crew, a year later! Shop it here.

Today's Everyday Fashion: Print Mixing

Print mixing top and shorts, pink lace up sandals

Print mixing is tricky! I have tried and failed at it many times, so it's exciting to find a combination that works. This catalog photo is pulling it off perfectly, and reminded me of similar printed shorts and an old top already in my closet. I love the two together, but I really wanted to pair pink shoes with it. It changes it from a casual look, to a look for a night out, but I love the pop of pink. My shoes are from last year so I shared some more shopping options below!
