I have been in love with this inspiration photo for months, so I was really excited to finally have all the pieces to create it! This look has a bit of a retro vibe and reminds me of a 60's diner for some reason (maybe it's the polka dots? or the mix of aqua and mustard?).
Why this works: This shirt has a lot of volume, so I balanced it out with some super-skinny pants. Belting it also helps contain the volume and create more of a waistline.
