Blue and White

Of the various diffusion lines JC Penney carries, I think MNG by Mango is my favorite. The pieces typically have a higher price point, but this blue and white print top stood out the most to me, and best of all, it was on the clearance rack for only $24.

There was also a sheath dress in the same print that I fell in love with as well, and was quite torn as to whether I should get the dress or the blouse. I ultimately went with the blouse because it was less expensive and had more potential for remixing.

As you can see, the wind was unrelenting in it's desire to make my hair go crazy.

JC Penney provided me with a $100 gift card, my views and opinions are my own. 

Oh see, here is the dress. Isn't it fab? I kind of want to go back for it...

  1. This is totally a teacup kind of outfit--wait, that doesn't make sense. What I meant to say is that you remind me of the pretty blue and white china that you see so much. The pattern on that top is just so intricate, and to be honest, I think you should go back to get that dress because not only would it add to your teacup clothing collection, but it just really is a pretty piece! And the sash that comes with it is lovely, too~ <3 :D

    Sorry that the wind was being lame. It didn't ruin anything, at least. ;D

  2. Nice!!


  3. I love that blouse! I agree, I went through JCP really quickly the other day and I liked that stuff the best :D
    The dress is awesome too though!

  4. Yes, you probably should go back for the dress - it's super flattering on you!

    I rarely shop at JCP, but I love their new branding initiatives.

  5. very lovely outfit!
    Check my blog if you want!


  6. Blue and yellow is my favorite color combination right now, so I am loving this outfit.

  7. beautiful!!!
    love the clutch and the top.great colours.

  8. That would be a hard decision--I love both pieces! I think you're right though that the top has more remix potential. I love it paired with the yellow!

  9. Oooooh I think you should also get the dress. You look down right gorgeous in it. I love the blouse too and I think it was a good move to start with the blouse. Great pattern and colors and I love how you added the bit of yellow with the necklace. Pretty!

  10. Get the dress! It's amazing!

  11. I love the blouse but totally think you should go back and collect that dress, it's really flattering on you and a great piece!

  12. Great top - so versatile. The dress is amazing though.

  13. It's a great top - and i see why you were thinking about the dress: love the dress. Looks spectacular !
    I'd go back for the dress.
    We have a MANGO store here but it's SO expensive i only go when its on sale.

  14. love the look! i need a good pair of white denim!


    PS i would go back and get the dress too! looks great on you :-)

  15. That is such a great print- I love it on both the blouse and the dress!

  16. Love that classic pattern. I could also see it with a pair of bright short or pants! That dress is fabulous...go back and get it!!!

  17. shooooot. Go back & buy that dress. I might have to do the same ;)

  18. I love this MNG line. Mr. A has to actually pull me away from it. I never used to shop at Penney's, either!

  19. You know I think the blouse suits you better! And love the print..so Indian!

  20. oooo ahhhh. I think you may need to go back for the dress :)

  21. gorgeous blouse, and it looks perfect accented with yellow!

  22. That star fish ring is too cute! Perfect for summer :)

  23. Please tell me you got the dress too - it's just as fab as the top.

  24. the white jeans look STELLAR with that top! the print is so perfect for summer!

  25. How can you pass up a dress that looks as flattering as that ? I couldn't. That's the beauty in a dress...it doesn't need to be remixed. Instant outfit.
    Get the dress.

  26. what a lovely find!! I love how you've paired it with mustard accessories. I'm a big fan! I think you made a great choice with the top :)

  27. Ooh both the top and dress are wonderful! The print is so lovely, it reminds me of china plates! Will the dress go on sale further?!

  28. Yes, you should get the dress as well!

  29. Beautiful top! I love the print and colour, it really pops with your yellow accessories!

    I think you picked well - the top will be a lot more re-mixable than the dress :)


  30. You look fabulous in the dress, go girl go.

  31. How cute is that dress on you! I tried it on as well, but it just didn't look good on me at all. xo

  32. The blouse is so beautiful! Perfect accessories, too.

    You know where you should be in these photos (not that I don't love the marina)? Italy. Or Greece.

  33. The top is beautiful, but the dress looks REALLY good on you. Go get it! :D

  34. I really like the blouse and the dress is a must have! It looks wonderful on you!

    You should consider being the spokesperson for JCPenney!
