One of the most gratifying things for me is when I put two articles of clothing together that I think won’t work and somehow they do. Case in point; this Reformation dress was purchased for a fancy shindig in which I wore it with heels and was feeling quite foxy. This striped top from Express was recently purchased and not yet worn. I put on the top and was like “Hmm, what should I pair this with?” I wear jeans a lot, so I wanted to go with something different. I saw this dress in my closet and thought the cut-outs would work perfectly with the low scoop neck of the top. I paired them together, threw on some oxfords and a military inspired hat and viola! It’s Sergeant Pepper meets nerdy school girl or something like that. Whatever it is, I think it works and I like it. YAY!

    That Reformation dress is so perfect. I’m extremely bitter everything in their side is out of my budget or else I’d be buying up a storm right now.
