I know... way too much flash. I'm still learning how to use the camera so please bear with me.


I love pearls and polka dots and posted this outfit on Instagram yesterday. It's a plus that the back of the t-shirt also has a grosgrain bow. :)

  1. What an adorable top! Love the back bow detail. Definitely pinning the first pic! No worries on the flash and pics..you are doing great :)

  2. Thanks so much Annie! <3 I'll try it without flash next time to see if that makes a difference.

  3. You know how I feel about polka dots! Then I see the bow in the back and it just makes me love this top so much more. :)

    I love that shirt! I went to the website and read some of the reviews, many said it ran big. I am about the same size as you, i can't tell too much by the pictures but how does the small fit?

  12. Thanks Anna Marie. It fit me okay.

    I just got a new dress form and put the top on her to show you how it looks (click here). The dress form measures 33-25-34. I'm a 32A in the chest but otherwise she's pretty close to my measurements.

  14. My pleasure. I hope it works out for you!

    Keep me posted if you want.

    I actually had to return it. It ended up looking boxy on me. I probably could have tucked it into pants and skirts but I decided not to keep it. I really wanted to make it work because I love polka dots and bow. Thank you anyways!

    I just discovered your blog today and can I just say, I'd love to steal your closet!! You're quite a bit smaller than me but otherwise I love everything I've seen so far! You always look very classy and put together. This blog is definitely going on my to-study list!

  17. Thanks Lauren! That is so very sweet of you to say. :)
