Dotted and laced

I am determined to be content with what I have in my closet because I am the worst about feeling like I have nothing to wear, despite a very full closet. Sometimes I feel a lot of pressure to have new things to wear or trends to take part in because of being a personal-style blogger. This summer, I’m going to learn to be happy with what I already have. Here’s the breakdown:

Blouse: Banana Republic via Goodwill
Shorts: Charlotte Russe (similar here and here)
Flats: Lands’ End (similar here)
Sunnies: Forever 21
Clutch: Brahmin (c/o)
Necklace: Kohl’s
Rings: Kenneth Jay Lane via Giveaway/Charming Charlie
Lips: Maybelline’s Parisian Pink 

The details are what make this outfit for me. The sweet, feminine touches, like lace shorts, polka dots and a bow in my hair (which I didn’t get a picture of), all lend themselves to give off a girly vibe but in a subtle way. These shorts were another closet hidden treasure I forgot about. Clearly I need to dig deeper into my closet and find other items I’ve forgotten about, all in the name of my quest of contentment with my closet.

Also, congratulations to Alex of Delayed Missives! She’s the winner of the nautical bracelet giveaway. Alex, I’ll be emailing you to get your mailing address.
