I've seen this look on multiple fashion blogs, and also again last night while I was running into the mall. It's pretty over-done if I do say so myself. But I have been looking for a chambray top, or some type of a sheer blouse to wear over this maxi dress since I bought the maxi dress at the end of March. I FINALLY came across one at Forever 21 last week (similar style, here) and now, of course, they have a bunch of them! This maxi already has elastic around the waist, so it didn't need the cinching of the shirt, but I think it just adds a little something to an otherwise plain dress.
*Disclaimer* Please do not mind the mess of a closet in the background. I just got back from a 5 day camping trip and have been non-stop ever since, I just threw my bags in my closet and went on with my life.

Chambray button down-Forever 21, July 2012
Sandals-Burlington Coat Factory, June 2011
Necklace and Bangles-Aldo
Watch-Kenneth Cole, a gift from Santa, AKA my mother and she got it at TJ Maxx.
What the hell, I'll probably never be wearing them in another picture.
Glasses-Walmart Vision Center, lol! I honestly think they're Walmart brand, they cost like $35!
The dress covers the sandals anyhow, but it's the first time I've worn them all summer!
I wanted to get a close-up of the watch/bangle mixture, I'm pretty sure the bangles are from two different sets, (Similar styles here and here.) but I have them clumped together by "gold bangles" and "silver bangles", so it is possible the sets are all mixed up. But I know the gold with the black ribbon came in a set from Aldo that also included stretchy pearl bracelets, in October 2009.
