Kate Spade rosette top layered with NY and Co. Shirt
Chloé flats (barely visible)
Last night I stopped by Old Navy in search of one specific chambray shirt dress that I've admired on the website (but can never catch in stock, in my size). This is what I wore. It's funny how the sartorial blogosphere hive-minds* so many of its members into sporting the same trends (arm parties, for example). I was originally wearing a sleeveless top with the Amhara skirt but wanted a layer to wear in air conditioning. I grabbed a casual button front shirt and randomly tied a knot in the front (as I did so often in the early 90s). It was my low stakes experiment for the evening and I have to admit that I hated it. I don't care for how it looks on me personally (it looks so sloppy... other bloggers really pull it off somehow) but even worse, I felt like I was adjusting it constantly. Suffice it to say that this is a trend I will be skipping from this day forward.
On a more serious note, I hope that those of you on the East Coast and in the path of extreme weather stay safe and dry this weekend!
*I'm not sure if using "hive mind" as a verb makes sense anywhere except my own brain.
