Lady Bug, Lady Bug

Yesterday I went pretty much completely off the grid.
No phone, cell or otherwise, no computer, no communication outside my house.
It was pretty great I gotta tell you.
Today, is business as usual, but that one day of down time was pretty nice.
 This cute little blouse has been in my closet for a few weeks.
  I got it at the GAP during one of their 40% off a regular price item sales. 
 It just screams spring to me.
I love lady bugs and this shirt was calling my name. 
 I paired it simply with denim on denim so the shirt would be the focal point.
Confession time about these glitter smoking slippers. 
 I got them on sale at Target for $7 quite a while ago. 
 I haven't been able to bring myself to wear them,
 because I just felt like Suri Cruise every time I put them on. 
 I am still not sold on them completely.

Have you ever bought an item of clothing that you just never were
 sure was the right choice?
What was it and what did you end up doing with it?

The Suri Cruise comment cracked me up. If you like them, you should wear them. We all need a little sparkle in our lives :)

Love the top too. It definitely screams spring, which I hope is here soon! Heather

With this outfit, your shoes add that little bit extra without taking away the focus on the (very pretty) blouse. Great that you styled the blouse with just denim.
Have I ever bought things that I wasn't sure about??? Hahaha, woman, my closet could be filled with it. What do I end up doing with it? Give it away to friends.

Aww, I love your ladybugs! There's nothing like a day off the grid, I'm planning one tomorrow and can't wait. Glad you got to feel refreshed.

Love the ladybird print, what a great shirt. I like the silver shoes, Brett, they don't say dressed-up doll of a celebrity offspring to me!
I make shopping mistakes, don't we all? I either sell on, donate, or pass on to friends, and tell myself to be more careful next time! It helps to never spend very much on anything, that way I feel less guilty! xxxxx

What a lovely shirt! Prints like this are so springy/summery. Recently I bought a dress with butterflies and dragonflies.
