Dotted

Along with my striped tee, the ol' chambray shirt has treated me well over the years. Although I'm not retiring my trusty one from Gap years ago, I ended up getting a new one this weekend at Madewell because....well.... it has polka dots. My other one does not. That is reason enough for me to update. In other news, whoever is to blame for bringing polka dots back in style for adults, I thank you.

  4. I'm so in love with your simple style. I'm a minimalist myself when it comes to fashion, and every time I feel insecure about my style being too plain, I pop over to your blog and see how beautifully you pull it off. :) It inspires me every time.

  5. Hey thanks, Annie! Yeah I just feel a bit silly if I have too much piled on -- plus it makes it hard for me to work throughout the day. I end up taking pieces off during the day that I might as well have just started out simple! But some girls can really pull it off and I love it when they do. Just not me -- I'm a simple gal :)

  8. You look adorable. I'll be in the DFW area over Thanksgiving. Can't wait to come check out your shop. Looking to stock up on gifts - I'd love to get clothes for myself but I think my baby belly might hinder that.

  12. I have been trying to talk myself into a chambray shirt and I'm thinking it's a yes. I'm loving the larger dots on this one, and may end up splurging for it. I just bought a pair of polka dot pants, so maybe I'm just drunk with power and can't stop seeing spots!

    You look great and the cut of that skirt makes your waist so tiny!
