Something like it

In a matter of a few weeks, I acquired two of the items that were part of my wishlist outfit, so the obvious choice was to wear them together.

I'm pretty happy with this chevron top, but I got a size small and it's falling off my shoulders. That is one of those things I never notice when I try things on in the store - it looks fine, it seems to fit, but get home and wear it for a few hours and I realize it's sliding all over the place.

Something like it
A few months ago I started following the blog Miles to Style, which has to be the cutest style blog about canine and human fashion ever. It has been making me want to include Chloe in my outfit photos more often (she's certianly done her fair share of photo crashing in the past, but it would be fun to have her around every day). Puppies make good accessories.

Today Chloe is wearing a pink camo bandana. Not my choice, the groomer put it on her. Pink camo is not a good look for anyone... not even a dog.

  3. This top totally works! I love it! Maybe it's supposed to show off a bit of shoulder? Though, I find that even their XS is sometimes too big on me.

  4. I love that Chevron top on you --even if it's a bit slip slide-y it looks great. Old Navy has had some really cute stuff lately.

    Oh and ps-Chloe takes her fashion very seriously.

  13. Oh, and I just wanted to say I ran into a few of your comments on other blogs and you're so good with sharing your opinion! You don't shy away from disagreeing, but always put your thoughts down so tactfully. I'm always glad when I stumble upon your comments. :)

  21. You would never know it was sliding, it looks great on you! I really love the chevron stripe...you're making me want to get a piece that features it.

  22. Great find with the top! I know what you mean about waiting till you get home and seeing things differently. I hate to admit that I am the QUEEN of indecision when it comes to clothes purchases at times and hold onto things right up to the return date as I try to decide if something is "worth it" or not. I just got a great top from Marshalls by Theory. It's like 75 percent off but still kind of felt expensive for what it was. We'll see! I Love how you always buy at a discount. I find no sense in ever paying full price. Plus the hunt is always fun :)

    Hope you have a wonderful day, Love.

  23. I think the top looks great! A little bit of loose fit is a great thing when it comes to the Summer heat. All the more fun to layer with, too!

  27. Miles of Style is a lovely blog :)
    And Chloe makes a perfect accessory to your gorgeous casual outfit. It does look casual, but very well put-together and accessorized.

  28. When you first posted it I looked for that chevron top at Old Navy but they didn't have it! booo. I had the falling off problem with my yellow dress so I sewed ribbons into the back and tied them in a bow across my shoulders. Works perfectly!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh I still ADORE that top and it looks fantastic on you (even if it is sliding around)! And I think Chloe does a very good job sporting the pink camo... but only because she's so cute (not endorsing the groomers choice here or anything!).

  38. I find the material of chevron tops is very stretchy and slidy so I tend to buy a size smaller than usual. The colour is great on you and I love the wash of that denim skirt! Chloe is such a sweetie- even with her faux pas pink camouflauge! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have a shirt that's a little too loose like that. I wear a SUPER TIGHT skirt with it and it kind of balances out the shape. It's not appropriate for everyday wear... but it works with the shirt.

    Or you could go all out and wear a pair of shorts and it could be a very comfy outfit.

  41. I feel like I just got the one-two punch of fab fashion! I love this shirt on you and the design on the pockets is a great little detail!

  42. really great striped shirt. the pattern is perfect and looks lovely on you. i like the idea of making your dog your accessory. i try and do that with my kids sometimes :)

  43. I love the chevron top- what a shame it doesn't seem to be fitting as well as you'd like :( The colour is beautiful on you, though, and I've completely fallen for the fleur de lys on the pocket of your denim skirt. Bonus points for accessorising with your dog; I always love seeing people's pets in their photos, mainly because I don't have one of my own and seeing photos allows me to pretend :)

  44. I love your chevron top- it's perfect for summer! That happens to me too, which is why I try clothes on again when I get home to see if I still like them as much as I did in the store! It's weird how it can feel so different at the store or at home!

  49. The chevron top looks great.

  50. You have an accessory collection that is very covetable, but you're right, Chloe is the cutest of them all! I need to include my dog in more of my shots! And the top looks good--you can't tell that it won't stay in place. I hate that though, you never really know how something's going to fit until you wear it for more than a few minutes.

  56. that top is amazing!! it's so you :)

  57. That top is very pretty, maybe you could do some secret pinning to your bra straps with small pinds to keep it in place. Your dog is super cute, the only thing is that I really dislike when people treat their pets as accessories (like Paris Hilton) it's horrible! I know you don't because I usually don't see her in your outfit photos and she's not wearing some weird sunglasses or shoes. She's beautiful even with her pink camo hehehehe
