Summer Tweed and Polka-Dots

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July (and Canada Day for Canadian readers)! With the holiday resting smack dab on a Wednesday this year, I took a bit of a week-long vacation from pretty much everything. This blouse did not get a vacation, as I wore it non-stop all week.

Being a popover, this blouse is meant to fit roomy (too fitted and you can’t easily take it off), but it was a little too roomy for my taste. Luckily it had many more features that I loved and deemed worth altering. Jacquard and navy blue dots mix to make an interesting take on polka-dots, cuffed sleeves make it great for layering under blazers and sweaters, and a stand point collar is my favorite type of collar. Here’s what I had done:

    Girl you look tall!!! Love the easy but chic top! So the summer tweed referred to the shorts? I’m still learning fashion vocabulary ;)

    I have a romper that has been recently handed down. Its quite loose but I would hate to get rid of it. Any tips on how to make it slimmer? It has sewn in pockets on the shorts
