    Your outfit looks spectacular. Except you know you can’t see the shirt is gingham right? It totally looks like a solid color of white actually. So weird. I am visualizing the pink gingham thouh and it is very cute.
    Love the sash tied into a bow. The clutch is very cool looking. You have the best jeans here.

    I’m in awe about how you could literally wear what the inspiration told you – beat-up boyfriend jeans and a plaid shirt – and make it look so refined, so ladylike. Wow. That’s what I call “inspiration”, as the outfit has a totally different feel with the exact pieces. Amazingly done!

    Oh my gosh, that’s so awesome that she named the clutch after you! it’s perfect!


    Love this entire look. You always look so perfect, Jenn! Makes me think you’re lying about having a baby. No new mom could look this put together!
