It’s been a while since my last outfit post which means it’s totally cool if I proclaim this is my faaaavorite, right?! Yeah? Because it is! In the last few years, I’ve definitely found lots of pieces I love and wear over and over again but I don’t recall the last time I loved a whole outfit so fiercely. It’s like each piece was made to go with the others.

The jumper is… well, perfect. It’s long enough to not show butt (which is definitely an issue I have with every other jumper I’ve ever found and tried on) It also just fits really well throughout. The straps don’t fall down. Seriously – it’s perfect. I love it with this dog top but I’m also excited to pair it with a black and white striped top, of course.

The top isn’t as perfect but to be honest, I could tell that from the product photos. That print though, it was irresistible to me. I love animal prints. My issue with the fit is that it’s short and wide. I have a long torso so with regular jeans it just looks plain silly. Luckily, the top works well with overalls, this jumper, and all my skirts. So, I guess, as long as you’re going to tuck it in, you’re golden. Prepare yourself for the compliments! (“I was gonna compliment your hair but then I noticed your shirt! Oh my gosh!” – Starbucks barista)

In this outfit I feel fierce, adorable, like a real-life cartoon character, and 100% ready for fall! Bring on the pumpkin patches (…and the weather that stays cool for more than a day at a time!)

Are you transitioning to blue hair?!!! I miss your ever changing colors. Great outfit BTW, and I might have to buy those shoes 😉

I mean, I guess technically it is already blue. 😛
