They Call Me Mellow Yellow

When I spotted (chuckle) this classic, polka-dotted blouse at my favorite thrift shop, I knew I had to have it, despite the fact that it wasn't in my size. In fact, it was the shirt's oversize appeal that piqued my interest. I've had to go to Aaron's closet for over-sized button ups until this point. But now I have one of my very own. And it's a girlie one, to boot. 

When I saw how Jen of A Little Bird Told Me styled up her recent thrift find, I immediately wanted to recreate the look with my new (to me) top. I love how the leather belt roughs up the feminine blouse a little. And since my top has subtle yellow polka dots, I wanted to bring the color out with my much-worn yellow flats. 

(By the way, I did not find a sub job for today. Hopefully, I'll have better luck tomorrow! And also, I will not be boring you any laundry talk. Okay, over and out.)
