It’s Friday! Congrats on making it through the week ;).

I’ve worn this outfit to school before when I had to give a presentation, and I’ve also worn it to mass. I think this cardigan is super cute, but I hardly wear it because I never know what to pair it with. I guess a navy dress works pretty well! I love the neon accents on the sweater, so I tried to draw more attention to them by adding color with the turquoise jewelry.

Does anyone have fun plans for the weekend? I’m going to try to play foot golf…Has anyone played before? It looks super fun for soccer lovers like myself!

 

Dress: Kohl’s, $36, last seen here, similar and super cute here

Cardigan: Old Navy, $22

Shoes: Target (hand-me-down)

Happy Wednesday! Hopefully you’ve been having a pretty awesome week so far.

I wore this outfit while in Colorado for a day of driving and exploring cities. I love that it looks like a romper (like the two-piece set in this post), but doesn’t have any of the fit or functionality issues of one. This is one of my go-to summer outfits because it keeps me cool and allows me a little more movement than a dress or skirt, which I also love to wear on hot days. However, the materials of the shirt and shorts in particular are very static-prone, which is quite annoying. If anyone has any suggestions to prevent static, I’d love to hear them!

These pictures don’t have the best lighting because a summer thunderstorm was rolling in. Does anyone else love summer thunderstorms? I think they are a lot of fun to watch from a covered porch or from your window, and the smell of rain in the summer is so refreshing!

 

Top: a.n.a. at JCPenney, $20, similar in a few colors

Shorts: a.n.a. at JCPenney, $20, similar style

Sandals: Target, $15

Hat: Nordstrom Rack, $21, exact but currently sold out

Ruffles in the Wind

Good morning! I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend.

This is another outfit from my trip to Iowa. I wore this to mass one morning and then to breakfast with a large group of people. I love the lace detailing on the back—it’s such a cute addition to the blouse! While the ruffles are very pretty, there is an awkward seam down the middle of the shirt that can make it a little uncomfortable.

I could see this top dressed up on someone for work with a black pencil skirt and a cardigan, or it could be dressed down for the weekend with skinny jeans and sandals. I love this look because it is a mix between the two!

Blouse: Kohl’s, $20, similar here and here

Slacks: H&M, $30

Purse: Charming Charlie, $15, purse in other colors

Sandals: Target, $15

Hi everyone!

I’m so excited about today’s post; I love this dress so much! I smile every time I put it on because it reminds me of a flapper girl, and I have a slight obsession with the Roaring Twenties… I actually have worn this dress twice as part of a flapper girl costume, but I’ll save those pictures for another day.

I wore this outfit to an anniversary party at a golf course. I don’t attend a whole lot of fancy events, so I was pretty excited that this party called for a dress and heels. I was running late, otherwise I probably would have done something cool to my hair.

I don’t know if my feet have gotten smaller since the last time I wore these heels or if my shoes just stretched out, but they definitely seemed way bigger than I remember. I have trouble walking in heels on a good day, so having my feet slip around in them did not help.

How gorgeous is this purse from Charming Charlie?! I feel like you can’t get more Roaring Twenties than that. I received it as a birthday gift last year, and while this exact purse is no longer available, there are plenty of other pretty evening bags from the RSVP Collection on their website. I’ve had my eye on this one for a while. The palm print is perfect for summer!

Does anyone have any fun plans for the weekend?
