Sometimes I put together an outfit and a week later I already don't like it. (Does this ever happen to you?!) That was the case with this outfit a few weeks ago. I kept feeling like something was "off" with the ruffle chambray shirt. It continued to sit in my closet with the tags on, so I exchanged it for the embroidered top in today's post. (I also wound up buying the $10 shirt in the inspiration photo so I can still wear that outfit - I liked the overall look but not the ruffle top.) I wore today's outfit to dinner on Friday (the original plan was the county fair but unfortunately it rained). I love the embroidery, fringe trim, and the thick linen-type fabric on this top. I couldn't find it online, but gathered some similar options below. If something in your closet still has the tags after a couple weeks I recommend exchanging it, too - there's no reason to let something go to waste!
