I’m feeling 22

Yeah, this dress is from Forever 21. The blouse underneath is from Rampage. Yes, Rampage: the junior’s apparel store. This seems like an appropriate time to admit that not every label in my closet is as cosmopolitan as I would like it to be. I think I’m okay with that.
 I am loyal to this dress because a.) it hasn’t fallen a part and b.) it’s color story makes it fair game for any season so long as it is styled properly. Here, I added some roughness to the girly frock with an embellished collared blouse and my absolute favorite blazer on top.
My most recent days have been marked by sheer fascination with pattern mixing. Boldly-paired prints gracing the pages of my favorite Spring glossies (magazines) have left me dizzy with inspiration and are partially responsible for what you see here. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22.
Jacket: Silence and Noise via Urban Outfitters (in black here); dress: F21 (similar here & here), blouse underneath: Rampage (similar here & here); bracelets: F21 & Tiffanys; shoes: Calvin Klein (slightly more exotic print on sale here).

    I love your pattern mixing! It’s a look I’ve been wanting to try — thanks for the inspo! Also, I’m really jealous because you can totally pass for 22.

      First of all, I want to hug you for your comment about looking 22. Thank you a million times. Second, I could totally see you and your natural, classic beauty all wrapped up in some stripes and polka dots. Try it! 🙂

      Thanks for your sweet reply! You think I can pull off stripes and polka dots? Oh how I heart you! Now I just need to get me some dots. I’ve added that to my shopping list — thanks so much for the idea! xo!
