What I Wore (to a baby shower)


Awhile back, I purchased a striped dress and wasn't sure how to style it.

So I turned to Google Images.  One search for "Old Navy striped dress" later, I was in business.  The outfit was perfect.  Not only did I own the dress, but also the Old Navy chambray shirt!

I immediately pinned it for a later date.

The "later date" turned out to be a baby shower for my darling friend Ashley.  

And luckily, the morning-of fashion show was a one outfit event, as I am not an outfit-planner-outer....


I wasn't sure about the whole circa 1989 tying at the waist business, but I decided to go for it anyway.

I also wasn't sure about going to see Magic Mike.

But I decided to go for that anyway too.

Don't judge me.  Just have a happy Fourth of July.
