30 for 30 | 29: Spotty Dotty

Sweater: Old Navy | Shirt: F21 | Jeans: Simply Vera | Flats: Steve Madden Vegass | Earrings: Target

This Forever 21 top is so sheer that I haven't actually been able to wear it on its own - something about "hey look there's my bra!" doesn't seem to scream "hire me I'm a young professional!" at the same time. I love that it adds a pop of pattern to an otherwise pppreeeettttyyyyy plain outfit. I definitely want to add some more patterned button downs to my closet - I loved this one so much during my last 30 for 30 that I'm pretty sure I couldn't go wrong with at least a leopard print and a stripe. A month or so ago I was watching this beautiful pink and red stripe Equipment blouse on eBay... I fell asleep before it ended and it sold for THIRTY FIVE FREAKING DOLLARS. Seriously, don't you just want to stick a fork in your eye when that happens? 

What's your "one that got away"? eBay-wise that is, we're not trying to get all Katy Perry up in here.

  1. Very cute! I love blouses under sweaters but I always feel like I can't escape the bunchy sausage-y look.. haha. My most recent 'one that got away' happened this week actually.. I was watching a gorgeous pair of almost like-new Coach ankle booties that sold for TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS. I forgot to go back and bid because in an attempt to take my eBay-ing down a notch I turned off mobile alerts. Sigh.

    1. I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS!!! It's always the great, one of a kind things that go crazy low and I always, always miss them.

  2. I love the pop of fun this top adds to the outfit! Could you wear it with a tan or black tank under it and a big chunky necklace to distract people? Just a thought! But it looks great under sweaters!

    1. For whatever reason I'm like allergic to wearing black tanks under things (don't ask, it's weird) but I think I could get a tan slip or something and it would be fine, I just haven't tried cause I'm laazzzzyyyyy :)

  3. I LOVE this outfit! The hints of leopard make me very happy. I'm the kind of person that if I actually want something I get it. I don't want very much so when I do, there's no getting away from me!

  6. Love this outfit. I have the same sweater (in multiple colors) and haven't tried putting a button up underneath - I'm feeling inspired!!

  7. My ebay "one that got away," a pair of mint-colored Delman peep-toes that sold for $30 while I was in class. Le sigh. I still dream about them, and it happened 2 years ago!

  8. Cute! My one that got away was the J Crew polkadot sequin top for a bargain price that I forgot to go bid on. It ended up going for like $25. Argh.

    1. Bummmmerrrrr. I get so much of my J.Crew off eBay! So glad I'm not the only one!

  9. Totally unrelated to your outfit comment: I dig that fun little plug in scent maker.

    Related comment: I enjoy the bun with this outfit. Perfect touch.

    I don't do the ebay thing. Competition scares me hence why I shot for the wrong team when I played basketball.

    1. It's a Scentsy! You should totally get them, they're way less scary than candles. And HILARIOUS that you mention basketball because I shot for the wrong team TWICE in high school. My coach made it like a "thing" to tell me if our goal was "toward the flag" or "away from the flag" after that ;)

  10. I like the printed button-down under a simple outfit. That is a nice white sweater and your bun looks great.
