The 200th Post Outfit!

Polka dot blouse, vintage wool sweater, leather belt, thrifted. Dooney & Bourke bag, vintage. Chambray skirt, Target kids' department. Coral sandals, Gap.

     I am so happy to be writing my official 200th post! It isn't that big of a milestone, but I plan on writing well into the thousands so I think that this a great start. I guess I wouldn't be so impressed with this post if it weren't for the fact that most of these posts have been from this year when I really hit my blogging stride! Stay tuned for something fun coming up in celebration, I promise you won't want to miss it.
    As far as the outfit goes, I felt perfectly dressed for a fun church service followed by a lazy Sunday. I was so happy to find this little blouse from H&M at a local thrift store. It's odd because the closest H&M to us is three hours away from my town. Even so, it will definitely be on heavy rotation this spring and summer- it adds the perfect dose of dressiness to an otherwise casual outfit. 
     One of my biggest tips for petite girls is to always check the kids departments when shopping. I realize that some of the clothes, yes, are a bit juvenile. But I'm often able to find nice basics or even pieces that resemble more expensive pieces that are in adult sizes. I know not everyone can wear kids sizes, but being so small framed, I find that I can add a little unique touch with somethings from the old "7-16" section. 
     What better way to emphasize my diminutive stature than framing myself with a giant tree?

I love this outfit- it's perfectly put together and the perfect outfit for your 200th post! Congrats on that impressive milestone, dear! :) ♥

And yes! Children's clothing all the way! Haha! Especially in thrift stores...oftentimes the sizing on older children's clothing items are the same as an x-small or small in womens/juniors, which is incredibly convenient if you're that size. :)
