Things are getting weird around here. On Facebook, everyone is talking about heading back to school or college, and for the first time in my life, I won’t be one of those people. It’s a weird feeling being a grown-up now! Who’d have thought it’d take until the middle of August for me to feel like a college graduate finally? Here’s the breakdown:
Jacket: Aeropostale (super old)
Dress: French Connection via Garage sale (similar)
Heels: Talbots via Goodwill
Bag: Vintage (love this modern color-blocked version here)
Necklaces: Garage sale
Sunnies: Franco Sarto via Marshalls
Loafers heels are still in this fall, so this pair I found at Goodwill for $6 fit the bill perfectly. I love the little pop of leopard (which obviously needs to be paired with stripes). I’d been struggling with how to carry this top handle bag without looking too retro, and I think the modern mix of leopard and stripes is a great background for the vintage bag.
I’m back to real life again (even though these pictures were taken in Utah). This is the last of my Utah outfits I have to show you. Between my Chicago and Utah trips the past two weeks, I am ready to live out of my closet again. No more suitcases! Here’s the breakdown:
Don’t be surprised if you see this outfit again once the weather begins to cool off. I was accessory-less due to rushing out the door, and I only got to wear it for the morning. You know you’re a style blogger when you feel an outfit deserves a second chance purely based on the length of time you wore it. Also, be sure to check out the other similar French Connection dresses (listed above). They’re relatively inexpensive, and really, who can resist a good striped dress?
