I didn’t realize this dress was too big until we snapped photos. Too small is easy - things pull, or scrunch up. But too big? That can be harder to detect. In this case, it’s mostly the bust area. Even with adjustable straps and a tie waist I can see now that the fabric is drooping around the bust, and the v-neck is too low-cut. Thankfully, it’s still in stock, so I ordered a size smaller to try. Because I’m loving these colorful stripes and all the possibilities for pairing - like a brown or gray moto jacket, denim jacket, or ankle boots!

Kickin’ it old school today with a catalog-inspired re-creation! When I spotted the catalog photo (below) I realized I already had all the elements to create this blue x 4 (the pants are navy) outfit. I especially like how the top half turned out - this could be cute paired with white jeans, too. And/or you could switch out the sandals for white sneakers. Overall mixing all these different blues and textures is a pretty fun idea!

Is there anything better than a shirt with a big ‘ole bow?! This one in particular is a great mix between fun and professional. It works with jeans, but I’m also planning to wear it with a beige pencil skirt and red dress pants. It’s got great reviews online, and also comes in blue. And while I love the shoes I’m wearing in these photos, the shorter ones below just arrived and are SO comfy. It’s bows on bows for days!

Top: Amazon c/o, $28 (also comes in blue!)
Jeans: Levi's/Amazons, $37
