Let me tell you about the roundabout path I took in acquiring this dress. Well, originally I had purchased it in navy with the Circle the Globe skirt a few weeks ago. I bought both in a size 2 that day. When I pulled the skirt out to wear a few days later, it was somehow too big. The dress, too! I scolded my food baby for playing mind games with me, and swapped both of them out for smaller sizes. For some reason, I decided to swap the dress out for the yellow version.  But I am really more partial to navy dresses. I couldn't stop thinking about the other colorway! Then I had my unexpected Anthro discount opportunity, and now I have both. I don't know how these things happen.

But pending that Anthro discount purchase of a couple things (it was enough to make my credit card whimper), I basically broke all the rules of my clothing budget. So retail therapy is on hold till the end of July, save for a short list of things which includes birthday and wedding gifts and some moving expenses.

It's been closet cleanout central over here, and really, considering all of the forgotten pieces I keep uncovering, it's not going to be too hard. I also still have a bunch of new things I haven't had the chance to wear yet! But if anybody has any ideas for how we can make this a fun and interactive exercise, I'm more than happy to go with it!


  1. Haha, I have a similar round about story to the shoes I'm wearing today. I think when you can't stop thinking about something, it's a good sign in the clothing universe that you were meant to own that item. I love the green-ish (shamrock? I have no clue what jcrew's name would be) with the navy!

  2. Cute outfit, love the colors! Is the Jackie cardigan nice? I'm thinking about getting one.

  3. Wow, I really like this with all the bright colors mixed in! I think it's too funny that you ended up with both colors, too!

    PS I want a mini so badly :( Alas, too poor!

  4. perfect look!! I really like the belt~

  5. Lovely! I love my Vappu dress too! I need some of those sandals, I have looked at them forever but never bought a pair. So cute!

  6. I love that dress!! :) I saw it in Anthro recently and wanted to buy it so bad!! If only we could all get discounts!

  7. What a lovely bright combo! I love all your interesting styling choices.

    And if something works, I am all for buying multiples too!

  8. Ashley--It's how they getcha isn't it??

    Daily Uniform--Yes the Jackies are awesome! I almost bought a rainbow of them when I worked at the Crew. You can usually get them for a pretty good deal at the outlet, and from what I can tell, the quality is the same.

    Maria--I LOVE all of my Rebecca Minkoff bags and think they have been worth every penny. It also doesn't hurt that all of them were luckily purchased on sale or discounted. Did you snag anything from the online sale?

    Sara--These are my workhorse sandals! I've had them for years and years and they still look and feel great.

  9. So cute! I love that teal-ish color.

  10. I've been lurking on your blog for awhile, and this is the first time I've commented. I LOVE your blog and I love how you styled the Vappu Dress! Super cute!

    And yours is the best Vappu pun yet! =)

  11. This is the first time I've ever posted but I've been a long time lover. I just wanted to say that I'm guilty of the crime of owning both colours of the Vappu dresses too. I couldn't help myself though as both are so absolutely perfect. I'm thrilled to own both and have already gotten quite a few compliments on both. Best summer dress purchase I think so far.

  12. I love the pretty colors in this outfit, Jinah! The navy and the teal are so beautiful paired together.

    I hope you get a chance to wear your new items soon. Maybe you can throw them all on your bed, see where they land, and put outfits together serendipitously that way? Random clothes-throwing is how I sometimes put outfits together when I don't know what to wear, no joke. :)

  13. Adorable and so fresh! Love this ^____^ Now you're making me want the blue one more :-/

  14. Oh my goodness, I used to always wear Saltwater sandals when I was little. I'm jealous of your purse and I like your turquoise sweater; nice collar too!


Bonjour y'all! Thanks for stopping by.
