Today's Everyday Fashion: Cupcakes and Cotton Candy




































I just couldn't resist the confectionery power of this top. It reminds me of cupcakes, cotton candy, ballerinas and so many happy things. That's why when we had a "cold" streak last week, I immediately pulled this out of my closet. A friend and her husband were in town, so we met them for dinner and ice cream on Monday night. It was pouring rain, hence the curly hair, but this outfit proved to be perfectly comfy for the occasion!

Styling tips: The many layers of this shirt adds bulk to my frame, so I added a belt to help create a waist. I also kept my pants slim to balance out the volume up top.

Occasion: Double-date
Shirt: TJ Maxx, $15 (recent)
Belt: Gap, $10
Jeans: American Eagle, $33 (recent)
Shoes: Banana Republic, $22
Necklace: Banana Republic, $15
Charm: c/o Stella & Dot Tara Anderson, $19

Jewelry tip: Check out this 3-charm pack from Stella & Dot (below). The charms hook on to any existing necklace, immediately giving them a little makeover. The pack is on sale right now for $19, which is a heck of a deal since you are basically getting three (awesome) necklaces! I'll be wearing these charms often, so thought I would pass along this deal while it's still available! :-)
