I thought we were done with the cold hard winter of 2014, but it decided to make an encore appearance Tuesday, following some bad weather Monday night. It was probably 60 degrees, which is unacceptable because it’s summer break and I want to go to the pool, not wear long sleeves. But I digress. I went to lunch with my sister on Tuesday, and decided to wear the warmest things I brought home- jeans and a chambray.
I started with my new floral chambray from Old Navy. I bought this last week, and it was on sale for only $11.49! I LOVE my solid chambray, but I’m afraid I’m going to wear it out soon- I wear it at least once a week! I love the tiny floral print on this one, it’s perfect for spring! I paired it with my bright green cropped jeans from JCPenney. (It looks like they’re out of this color, but they have a neon green- so cute!). I love this bright hue, it’s perfect for spring and summer, and it brings life to an otherwise simple outfit. I chose my brown Lucky Brand loafers, because they’re comfortable, versatile, and my newest favorite shoes. I bought them from Marshall’s and unfortunately cannot find them online- but the Lucky website has similar styles! For finishing touches, I added my everyday watch, roll bracelet, and rings, and my Kendra Scott Morgan Studs. I love this look because it’s casual yet interesting, and was excellent for a cooler day! But hopefully we won’t have too many more of those!
I usually try to post at least once a week if not more, but this past week and a half has been very busy! I finally got a job, so I’ve been working every day, and when I get home all I really want to do is lay down and play Candy Crush. I love having a job, but it’s hard getting used to working all the time! Also, last weekend I went to visit my old roommate/one of my good friends Ashley in College Station. It was great to see her and wonderful to be back, even if it was just for a little while! While I was there, I did a little shopping at a few of my favorite College Station-only spots, and I found this gorgeous dress on sale at Northgate Vintage for only $14.50! Talk about a steal. As you may know from one of my previous posts, I am obsessed with Northgate Vintage. It’s a great place to find pieces for your Single Girl Closet on your College Girl Budget.
I love the colors of this dress, and the floral/damask print! I also love the exposed, contrasting zipper. It’s very different from any of my other dresses, which is great because I feel like they’re all the same! I was really excited to wear this to church today, and here’s what I paired it with:
I chose my Steve Madden nude heels because I thought they would look great with the blush background of the dress, and my Kendra Scott Elle earrings in turquoise! I didn’t add a lot of jewelry because of the intricate pattern on the dress. While I am absolutely obsessed with this outfit, I want to be able to wear this dress in different ways! Any suggestions?
