Joining Kristina (doctor fashion blogger!) of Pretty, Shiny, Sparkly for Bloggers Do It Better: Black and White Stripes (more black and white stripes looks here, here and here)
I normally don't have much luck at T.J. Maxx. Everything either doesn't fit quite right, is too teeny-bopper, has holes or snags in weird places, or is hidden in some clothes rack of craziness and I never find it. This dress, however, was different. My sister and I went to T.J. Maxx last weekend and I tried it on for fun, fully expecting it to meet the aforementioned criteria, and was pleasantly surprised. I didn't exactly need it, so I tried to talk myself out of it unsuccessfully (I blame part of it on my sister, who gushed about its wonderfulness). I knew there was no turning back when I went home and tried it with boots, a belt, and my favorite scarf.
Despite the excitement over my stellar find, I have to give full disclosure that it is not what I wore today (or yesterday). What I did wear was OR scrubs, which make getting dressed at ungodly hours of the morning easier but are not really outfit post worthy. However, I'm super excited to wear this for Stephen and I's next date night, which is hopefully not too far in the distant future (not looking super promising right now since I'm on call for general surgery this weekend and Stephen works next weekend).
