Dorothy Revisited


Hmmm...does this look familiar?? When I saw this blue and white gingham peplum at Old Navy a few weeks ago, I knew it absolutely needed to be worn with red shoes. I clearly had The Wizard of Oz on the brain without even realizing it, right down to the yellow brick road stone path. Apparently, Dorothy and I are kindred spirits – I mean, I totally dig her travel style. While there were no tornadoes, witches or flying monkeys (but a flying pterodactyl - AKA a hornet - did nearly carry me away. Who says a girl can't run in heels?!) encountered on this particular day, this outfit was still super fun. Plus, I totally feel like I live in Oz most days of my life so it works.


Aside from these gorgeous Zara heels (I've linked to a similar pair below), I think the accessories are the main attraction here. These Quay Australia cat eye sunnies and this dainty Mantraband cuff are both from Elysian Co. and I know I will be getting tons of wear out of both this summer. Jewelry with uplifting phrases is my jam (I'm looking at you, Alisa Michelle) so this Mantraband with the phrase "What if you fly?" is a new fave. If you don't know what that means, you can see the full quote here on Pinterest. Of course, I also have on my favorite monogram necklace from ONecklace (get yours for 10% off with the code Regally10).

So, what do you think? Who wore it better? Me or Dorothy??

P.S. No, I do not have a sunburn in these photos. That would be Jaime's hot pink dress reflecting on me as she took these photos. It's fine, I think she gave me a nice, glowing highlight! :)
