  11. I love the nautical look! My favorite looks are the first two. I love that BR cardigan, I think I remember seeing it there forever ago and I decided not to purchase it, I wish I would have!

  12. Hmm Ill have to check out those Gap shorts. I'm coming to the realization that a 3" inseam is infinitely more flattering on me than a 2" inseam. It must be me maturing lol

  13. I tried on that dress from Target last weekend and it is super cute but practically see through, it's so thin. I ended up putting it back and getting the red one with bicycles on it instead.

  30. My favorite outfit is the first one, I think the red peplum top would look great with a pair of white jeans.

  34. I like all the looks, but #1 and 2 are my favorites. Just curious, why are you holding the striped blazer in the first pic, but there are no pics wearing it?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I really like the cardigan and white shorts and the shorts and peplum alone. Cute!
