cowboy take me away

What I'm wearing:
*J.Crew Perfect Shirt in Neon Azalea
*Mossimo Target Knit Maxi Dress in Army Green
*anthropologie Stormy Seas Necklace in Yellow (similar here)
*anthropologie Tangled Treasure Sandals
*Mulberry Alexa in Oak

Every time I wear a gingham or a plaid shirt, I can't help but feel a bit like a country gal. This gal lives in the big city, but sometimes she can't help her inner (faux) Southerner come out! It is probably too hot in the city to be wearing anything that has sleeves, but indoors in the air conditioned office can be brutal. Luckily I can easily take this button down off while I'm running around outside, but keep it on when it's chilly inside. I've had this simple green maxi dress for a couple of years now, but I always thought it was too plain and boring, even though it's extremely comfortable to lounge around it. I'm glad I kept it around though, I thought it was a great base to showcase my favorite brightly printed shirt.


  1. Aw, nuts, now I've got that song stuck in my head! ;o)

  2. I love this outfit. Must copy now...

  3. I never know how to make the tied-shirt work for me. It just feels like the proportions are awkward on me, as evidenced by this, but it looks great on you.

  4. This is so cute and flattering!

  5. Adorable! I've also been trying to tie shirts like that over my dresses... definitely helps in this AC-blasting office!

  6. Love this outfit idea - and I second that this song is now in my head!

  7. gingham is totally country! And I love how you've worn it right here!
