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. 🙂

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

    Cute outfit! Love the bow in back! Try no flash next time and slow down shutter speed, or increase ISO 🙂

    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?

    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.

    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!www.exploringmystyleblog.blogspot.com
