Before I went to bed on Tuesday I posted a picture on Instagram (alatteinspiration) about whether or not I had the guts to wear dots on dots. I remember Rachel of the Pink Peonies wearing a similar outfit that I loved & wanted to re-create.
Needless to say after adding a blazer and a chunky J.Crew-esque bracelet I was hooked. I love how the blazer's lining had cream and navy stripes to echo the color palette but still give it a subtle touch of uniqueness. I also pinned the skirt to create more of a flattering fit. It didn't sit right on my hips so I raised it up to the smallest part of my waist, which convinced me to wear the outfit. (That and the fact it if I looked to cray-cray it was a half day, so I wouldn't be there as long. ;)) It's amazing how a small alteration can transform an outfit.

And add neutral heels for good measure.
