    Hi Tara! I’m new to your blog.

    I found you through Marionberry’s Style blog!

    And I’m so happy that I did.

    I love that you added that pop of red necklace. I really feel like that makes the whole outfit complete. It pulls it together so nicely.

    And your mirrored MK sunglasses is totally killer.

    Love it!

    Have a lovely day, Tara!!


  • Denise

    Hi Tara! Love the stripes/vest combo! Quick question: I have that same J.Crew top and note that the tag says “dry clean only”; have you stuck with the recommended cleaning method or successfully tried another method? I’d rather not pay $8 to clean a casual top. Thanks!

  • amylshaughnessy

    That necklace is gorgeous! I love that it is the one bold pop of color in this outfit. Cute look!

    I can’t get enough stripes. Love your bracelet combo!

  • Tara

    I totally didn’t know it was dry clean only and shrunk my pink one lol….I really don’t understand why a casual top like this would be dry clean only, I didn’t even think to check it! I try and use dryel at home, it works ok….I might try handwashing as well!

  • Tara

    Thank you SO much for stopping by :)

  • chioma anosike

    love the stripes and arm candy :)
