Happy Monday Lovelies!  I originally had a different title for this post!  It was going to be called “Grandma” – the reason being Mr. S says this top looks like an old lady blouse.  I tell him he doesn’t see the potential when it’s on the hanger.  We snicker a lot about my tastes in clothes.  They are all over the place, but the one constant is my penchant for what he calls “grandma” clothes!

This St. John top was a resale shop find for $15.  It’s polka dot and floral.  Come on Mr. S, what more can you ask for!  So, what do you think?  Grandma or Goodie?!

TOP :: thrifted St. John {super cute fruity Equipment blouse}
NECKLACES :: Anthropologie {check sale racks in store}, Robyn Rhodes
EARRINGS :: Anthropologie
BRACELETS :: MaiTai, Ann Taylor, F21, thrifted
HEELS :: old Jimmy Choo {love these from Zara}
BAG :: Chanel {last seen here}
SUNGLASSES :: Karen Walker
And let’s restart the positive daily quotes shall we?!  Let’s have a wonderful week!
We increase whatever we praise. – Charles Filmore

    Love the outfit! My husband has a tendency to poke fun at my wardrobe choices too. Oftentimes he’ll mention that I should have only paid 75% for something because it’s missing 25% of the materials (ex: cropped pants/leggings, 3/4 sleeved tops). Men. LOL

  4. JustPatience says:

    Love this look!! My hubby and I have a laugh sometimes about the stuff I wear. He’s not one for trends so sometimes he just raises an eyebrow and I say “trend” and he refrains from commenting ;)

  11. $15 for St. john even at a resale store that is unheard of! It’s a gorgeous top, and no it is not grandma looking. I generally associate that with bow-front blouses…1 year into blogging I still don’t really like the trend….

  12. Looks super great
    have a nice and stylish week darling

  18. Tell hubby, this is a beautiful blouse. Very classy, imo.
    Gorgeous accessories….esp the bag!

  19. rolala says:

    Definitely not a granny blouse and a bargain to boot! I love the way you styled it with the shorts and heels Sam. Totally glam!

    Rowena @ rolala loves

  20. LOL! Granny top! well, you’ve managed to make it look contemporary. I think it looks amazing with the white shorts.

  21. Tiffany says:

    That top is gorgeous! I think it could probably look old ladyish paired with a frumpy skirt, but it looks very modern the way you’ve styled it!

  22. Mary Ann says:
