Stuck Between Sizes

Does anyone else ever dress up with nowhere to go?  This outfit is a product of that.  I was just forming outfits in my mind and then realized that I had no occasion for this and that really it was too hot to wear this outfit that day anyway.  I ended up changing into a completely cotton outfit for the heat was about to kill me.  But the plan for a future outfit has been formed!

shorts: LC Lauren Conrad | shirt: Forever 21 (similar) | shoes: Marc Fisher (similar)
braclets: gift (similar) | necklace: gift (similar)

What a bummy-ish day.  I was all excited to find out that a dress I ordered had finally been delivered after being on back-order forever, only to wait all day at work and come home to find out that it's too big!  Now I have to go through the process of mailing it back and re-ordering in a new size.  Gaa!  Why can't online store size charts actually be accurate?  Because when I ordered the dress I was actually concerned that it was going to be too small!  Argh.

I'm sure you've all been in that situation, right?  Oh well, I must stay positive or else the next order will be too small!  Hah.  That would happen to me.


  1. Whether you wore it or not, I love the outfit!!!

  2. The shorts are so cute :) I love them

  3. I dress up with no where to go AND am constantly forming outfits in my head. It usually produces lots of grouped together items in my closet for future reference. I just ordered my first item from TopShop, a dress I had been eyeing for ages... only to get it and realize that the sizing is ALL kinds of wonky... boo! Uniform sizing is something that store DEFINITELY need to figure out!
    I love this outfit, and hope that you get to wear it some where fabulous soon!

  4. Love this outfit! The shorts are too cute and they look great on you! :) I'm feeling you with the heat, though. Cotton is definitely the way to go when it's this hot out!

    Started following you! Would love if you did the same! :)

  11. cute!

  12. Hello Julia, thanks for your comment! I'm following you back now, so let's keep in touch!

  13. You look cute! Those shorts are darling! Every time something comes that's the wrong size, I chide myself for shopping online, but then I tend to forget... I don't usually dress up with nowhere to go, but I often overdress for where I'm about to go! Talk about a first world problem...

  14. You look absolutely adorable, I love those shorts! And that owl necklace is just so charming. Online shopping can be tricky, I usually study their sizing charts and only buy from places that has free returns/exchanges for this very reason!

  16. your shorts are sooo pretty, I love the dainty print and the owl necklace is really cute! Grrr that happens to me a lot too, although more often with shoes. I never know what size I am because sometimes I am a size 6, sometimes 6.5, and sometimes even 7 :/ It's sooo weird. Hopefully the next order of your dress will fit!

  17. You look so cute - love the shorts with the heels! And I hate when I order something that doesn't fit...totally stinks!

  19. haha i do that aaaall the time! my brother always asks me where i'm going and i just go, "the couch". but you dont have to be outside to feel pretty :)

  20. I like visiting inspiring blogs like this.

  21. I hate that too, I measure and then it doesn't fit, although my body is perfectly the cm/inches that are indicated on the size chart... I don't know why this doesn't work...
    And yes, I love to dress up too! I think you don't need a special occasion for dressing up!
