Happy Friday, gals! And welcome to Dressed for My Day. I’m thrilled to be bringing you another sweet find from Evy’s Tree today. Those sweet gals gifted me this precious baby blue gingham cotton shirt, and I couldn’t wait to style it for you. Let’s see if I managed to keep this fresh print current and chic.
While I certainly can wear this darling baby blue gingham shirt with more casual pairings such as blue jeans, white denim or a jean skirt, I decided to attempt using it in a more swank ensemble.
Well, actually I did add a couple more pops of white with my white wicker and leather shoulder bag and these darling white beaded sphere earrings. All in all I created a very chic, monochromatic look so that the baby blue gingham shirt could steal the show and shine.
I pulled my hair up in a pony tail, situating it so that I have just a little lift and fullness on the top of my head. I think this keeps the look fresh and vibrant, but also lends a touch of sophistication. Plus, it shows off these sweet earbobs. Earbobs. That old-fashioned word just seems to fit these sweet things!
To level up this outfit even more, I added this smart white linen blend blazer. You know I’m loving me some blazers recently, and I’m so glad I ordered this one during the Talbots Friends & Family Sale. It’s beautifully tailored and goes on like butter! I’m in love, and you better believe you’ll be seeing more of it.
Oooh, ooh, ooh! Talbots has extended their Friends & Family Sale through May 5th, so you can still get this blazer for 30% off. Plus, if you use the code MOM40 you get one regular price item (like this blazer!!!) 40% off. It’s available in petite and plus sizes, too. I’m wearing a TTS 8, and it feels wonderful on.
So what do you think? Did I manage to make this baby blue gingham shirt look chic and current? Yes! But it’s going to be oh so fun pairing it with my denim, too. I hope you’ll take a look at all of Evy’s Tree’s newest additions. And let me know if you’d like to see more of them. They’ve offered me the opportunity to share more of them, so I’m game!

Blessed for My Day
Do you sometimes wonder if you God hears you? I do. There have been seasons in my life when the prayers were long, the wait was longer, the silence was deafening and the ache was painful. While some days I managed to put one foot in front of the other, some days I felt too hopeless to press on.
But I learned through that season that God can be trusted. I also discovered that even when I felt that He wasn’t hearing me or responding, He actually was. God proved faithful and near to me during that long, hard season. So I know He is faithful and near to you. Have confidence in that today.
This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him. ~ 1 John 5:14-15
