Yellow Polka Dots

Hello, everyone!

I like the idea of an all-white outfit, especially during the summer, but it’s nice to add a bit of color even if it’s a pastel. I saw this shirt at Ann Taylor months ago and immediately loved it. I mean, it does have polka dots after all. :) Yellow is not a great color for me, but I like this pale shade. This cute top might be a part of one of my I-have-to-watch-at-least-one-Michigan-football-game-because-my-husband-is-an-alum outfits this fall. Yes, this shirt is definitely not maize, but if I pair it with navy, I think I can maybe get away with it.

Lace Dress

Hello, everyone!

I bought this dress during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and was so excited when it arrived in the mail. I love the lace overlay with the nude slip underneath and really liked this particular lace. When I tried it on, however, I knew it wasn’t a dress I was going to keep. The fit looks good, but the dress is actually really uncomfortable. The entire dress rode up with every step I took, and I had to keep tugging the slip and the lace overlay down. It was so annoying and impractical! I have suffered for fashion at moments in the past (many, many pairs of stilettos come to mind), but I wasn’t willing to do it for this dress. I knew I’d never wear it, so I returned it. If all fitted lace dresses are like this one, I might have to skip this trend.

On the Hunt: Jewelry

Hello, everyone!

My shopping posts typically consist of clothes and shoes, so I thought I’d mix it up a bit and do a post of only jewelry. I browsed one of my favorite online jewelry sites, Bauble Bar, and found some fun pieces that I definitely want to add to my virtual cart. Look at the beautiful color of that blue necklace! And the orb cuff at the bottom is a great way to add a hit of color to an outfit, and it comes in gold, pink, yellow, or white.
