Plan A

This outfit is kind of a rip-off, well... let's just call it "heavy inspiration", k? I've had this dress for awhile and I adore the print but it's just so darn short, tight and strapless! I'm such a prude too so I really don't know how the dress ended up in my wardrobe (though it does explain why I've only worn the dress once before!). Anyways, I was doing some internet trolling last night and found this adorable photo of a girl wearing a very short romper and as a jacket she'd worn a men's chambray shirt. Light bulb moment! I have a long denim shirt!! So I was all giddy this morning to test out the shirt as jacket and see if I would feel less exposed. Thankfully, I did. Yes! 

Dress: H&M
Shirt: Joe
Shoes: Pierre Hardy for Gap
Belt: Thrifted
Necklace: From the Earth
Assorted Bangles

I just want to say a huge Thank You for all the amazing comments yesterday. They meant the World to me. I usually try to keep things light on here but it was just one of those days and I needed to let it out. Thanks for listening and being so sweet. I heart you! 

Lovely: Strangers on the street smiling and saying "Hi". So simple. So smile inducing. 

Yup. Not looking forward to actually making the deck. BUT am really looking forward to the finished product! 


  1. They say imitation is greatest form of flattery...and this outfit is adorable. I love the sweetness of the flowers offset by some serious leg!
