30 Day J.Crew Challenge: Dazzling Dots and Snazzy Scarf


Hello, my fabulouses! Rather than mixing patterns for this J.Crew Challenge outfit, I decided to stack dots on dots. This look is fun, cute, and casual–perfect for brunch, lunch, dinner, or a snack/coffee break…and everywhere in between! Adding the sunshine yellow scarf to this outfit added not only a burst of color, but also pushed it to the next level. This vibrant yellow hue is sure to catch attention. As y’all can tell–I am totally in love with this scarf! Now, let me have your attention please, fashionistas and fashionados, to show you the J.Crew Challenge outfit of the day!


To see how accessories REALLY DO make all the difference, check out another way I wore this lovely dot-on-dot look with minimal accessories. Click here.
