Today's Everyday Fashion: Retro

Inspiration: Bloomingdale's ( Dress ,  Purse )

Inspiration: Bloomingdale's (Dress, Purse)

Turquoise blazer, polka dot dress, yellow shoes

Every time I go to my closet I'm convinced there are no new outfits in there. I've been feeling that way for years, and yet I always manage to find something new out of old items! I owe today's idea to the inspiration photo (plus where I believe ideas come from). I just couldn't shake the adorable but pricey Kate Spade combo of polka dots and turquoise and wanted to make a copycat outfit from my closet. I have a similar mint purse from F21, but it wasn't the right shade of turquoise, so I went with this blazer instead. To complete the look, I added a yellow necklace and shoes, resulting in a totally fun yet classic, retro look!
