you are never fully dressed without a smile

I am a very lucky lady. I am married to a wonderful man. My husband truly is my very best friend. There are many reasons to list why I think he is the best, many of which I will save to share another day. He helps and encourages me to be the best version of myself. Sometimes, that includes being the best-dressed version of myself. Most of my favorite or best pieces I wear, my husband has picked for me. He has great taste! I can, on occasion, dress myself, but it is always nice to receive a surprise someone has picked especially for you. Recently, he surprised me with this beautiful navy and white suckered mini-gingham shirt from JCrew.
I had been lusting over this shirt for as long as I can remember. I adore how this shirt is slightly masculine, yet undoubtedly feminine. The night I received this shirt, we were heading out on one of the few summer type days we have had so far here in the Northwest to enjoy the Starlight Parade. The weather was beautifully warm, the sun was shining, it was a perfect summer night! We would like to see a few more of those days! We rarely head into downtown these days, so it was a real treat, and now I had something special to wear! We enjoyed a delicious happy hour meal at Oba! as well as a fun evening of wandering around the city. Since receiving this shirt I have been wearing it in any way I can combine it with the different accessories I have and love to wear on the daily. I am currently scheming ways to get this shirt in more colors without breaking my piggy bank ... maybe a visit to JCrew Factory store? It is a great shirt and every time I see it in my closet, begging to be worn, I can't help but smile.

Below are two different ways I have been wearing my beloved shirt, depending on the event and our weather. My watch, earrings, and locket were also items selected for me by my handsome husband. I wear them everyday and love them. My exact gold locket I could not find. It came from a wonderful seller on Etsy. I hopefully will find the details to share soon :)
