Sunday Best: v.5
Have you ever worn something that is basically YOU in clothing form? That's how I feel about this ensemble. I put it on and just thought, "This is so ME." It's nothing extraordinary, but it's feminine, flattering, and a little fun. As much as I love this polka-dotted midi skirt, sometimes it's hard to style. I tend to pair it with the same lilac tee and it just feels a little boring. This time, I went the neutral route and I love it. I got this Banana Republic blouse at a consignment boutique and it's rather sheer, but l really like the way it fits. If you'd take a glance at my closet, you might be thoroughly amused (or baffled) by the number of ruffled blouses I own. Girl can't help what she likes . . . While we're speaking of good deals, I snagged this skinny belt (along with five or six others) for $.50 each at a church sale about a month ago! Woot woot! I hate spending money on belts. It's silly, but I just can't bring myself to do it. Forever 21 is a good place for cheap skinny belts, by the way. Even though the quality isn't great, they do the job. This outfit was light, comfortable, and classic--the perfect summer ensemble.
