I am super excited about my OOTD today even though it's nothing fancy. At first glance, it's actually very blah and boring but I feel a little emotionally attached to this outfit because of the blouse (my apologies, I do not know the blouse name). I first saw this little white number on the sale section of Anthro's website some time last year. I want to say early last year. At the time, only a size small was left so I decided to order it and try it on, thinking if it didn't fit, I can return it. When it finally arrived at my doorstep, it was indeed too small. Not to mention, I could not even fit my elbow through the capped sleeves. It was so cute though, I really could not part with it. So I kept it in my closet hoping one day, it'd miraculously stretch out and I can fit into it.
Last night while I was fussing over what to wear, I decided to pull out the blouse and try it on for kicks and giggles. And yes, miraculously, it fit!!! I even got my arms through the sleeves!! I was so happy, I jumped up and down and did a little happy dance. What a great feeling! First, to know that I made the right decision to keep the blouse, but second to realize that all these months of changing to a healthier lifestyle paid off. I definitely love this little number and will get a lot of use out of it, I'm sure. The fabric is thin, perfect for summer but at the same time, doesn't wrinkle easily. And we all know how I hate hate hate clothes that wrinkle easy!
Without much further ado, here she is (the blouse of course)....
My arms fit!!!! :)
Sorry for the boobie shot but I wanted to show off the details of the shirt. It's got some sewn in detail that I was instantly attracted to.
I was reading Kathryn and Carol's blog and noticed that Kathryn owned a bunch of jewelry from an online Etsy store called Oh Hello Friend. I decided to check it out and bought a smiliar necklace that's in the above picture. I love the cute, antiquey feel to all the jewelry. They are like little charms from heaven!
