I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.
The Meghan Markle Look
Inspired by this photo, although my dress is in darker blue stripes and not as summery:
She looks great! And I am not going after a dress like this at all because I’d never wear spaghetti straps, and the stripes are too plain for me.
I decided for a Worldly vibe, and settled on this Going Places tote that I stalked on eBay for 3 years from Kate Spade NY. I had loved the print ever since I saw someone carry it (it came in a scarf too and a watch), and the tote was just a stunner. I got it secondhand off eBay and have used it since. It’s Little Bun’s favourite tote actually.
The navy blue in the bag matches up perfectly with the dress (I did not plan this, but the colours and stripes just went together with the map print tote), and I added my Meghan Markle sandals to the whole look to give it summer vibes.
Cute right? The gemstones in each country are INACCURATE as the capitals by the way, I looked it up. They were just haphazardly placed, so map geeks, don’t get excited. These Grear sandals by Sarah Flint (use my referral link for $50!) are really cool. I am thinking for next summer to wear them as-is for one try, and then if I find they need a bit of cushioning (what, I’m old), I will add these Foot Petals foot cushions at the heel AND at the ball of the foot
The whole look is so simple. Dress + Sandals + Tote.
