Dress: Marshalls for $15 - size small (similar HERE and HERE)
Belt: H&M - size XS (similar HERE and HERE and HERE)
Purse: Chanel m/l
Necklace: Chanel 
Shoes: Aldo {really old} - size 35 (similar HERE and HERE)
I can't get enough of this H&M yellow blazer. I thought the ruched sleeves were going to bug me but they don't. I usually scrunch up my sleeves anyway so it's nice that it's already done. It's nice that I don't have to keep adjusting and pushing them up when it falls. I'm thinking about adding a hook and eye closure to the middle front part so I can wear the blazer closed. I didn't think I could get as much wear out of this little bright yellow blazer but I've already worn it twice! I love that you can wear it to work for a pop of color (paired with pencil skirt/sheath dress) and wear it casually.
Yet another Marshall's score! I was drawn to the chiffon pleats and of course the polka dots!  I originally bought this dress to turn into a skirt but when I tried it on at home, I think I may just leave it as a dress. Since it's from the Junior's section, the fit is petite friendly. It was on clearance for $20 but I saw a navy and pink version (in a larger size) on sale for $15 so I asked them to price match it and they did. I know it's only $5 but still..any amount saved is a bonus. The lesson here is, it never hurts to ask! The worst they can say is no. I probably would have still bought it at $20 but $15 is a sweet price.
I have been wearing my new Chanel logo pendant necklace non-stop all week. I am in love with it. It's dainty yet still a statement piece at the same time. You can choose to wear it long or short so it's like two necklaces in one (love that).  It's a classic piece that I know will be in my life forever. 
Do you think I should keep this dress the way it is or turn it into a skirt?
