There's No Place Like Home



Do you ever have moments where you know an outfit reminds you of something, but you can't quite put your finger on it? I wore this one on Thursday and spent the majority of the day wondering why it felt so familiar. It was a pretty hot day so I decided to braid my hair to get it off of my neck. Midway through braiding, it hit me! Dorothy! This gingham outfit could pass for a modern day version of that charming girl from Kansas who finds herself lost in Oz. 

The Oz-vibe probably comes most from the gingham Gap top (try saying that 5 times fast). I normally don't like the way button-downs look on my figure, but I loved it paired with this white midi-skirt (also Gap). The texture from the cut-outs at the bottom of the skirt paired with the gingham pattern complimented each other beautifully and adding a thin brown belt sealed the deal.

The next time I wear it, I might see what my cherry-red flats look like with it. Probably not though, because I am obsessed with my B.O.C wedges. I couldn't find them in brown online, but I did find the exact same pair in black here. They are seriously one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I have ever worn. Normally after a few hours of wearing heals I have to take them off to save my poor feet, but I wore these wedges all day and had no problems. I think I'm in love. 



Shirt: Gap (exact)
Skirt: Gap (exact)
Wedges: Marshalls - B.O.C (exact in black)
Sunglasses: Charming Charlie (exact)
Belt: Old (similar)
Ring: Hand-Me-Down





 Here are a few other B.O.C. sandals available. I can't recommend them enough. I'm already looking into my next pair.


Peace,
Sarah

  6. I love it when outfits are evocative like this and can take us elsewhere. Your modern Dorothy is a charming look, especially the small detail of the teaming of the tan wedges and the belt. Brings it together.

    And the cut out detail on the skirt is really eye-catching.

  7. Funny, when you were discussing the modern day Dorothy, all I could hear is the Wicked Witch of the West's theme song. I love this spin on a classic. And I tried "gingham gap top" 2x and got so frustrated! Love this look.

    1. Thanks Clare! The song is stuck in my head now too! I'd give this particular top a try if you haven't yet already. The fabric is so comfortable and the quality is better than some of the shirts Gap has been selling lately.
      Peace, Sarah
