Outfit: Blue Striped Shift Dress, Red Cardigan, and Gold Glitter Loafers

Navy Blue Striped Cotton Dress, Red Boyfriend Cardigan, and Gold Glitter Loafers

Happy Fourth of July weekend to all of my American readers! I have a wonderful 3 day weekend so I have the day off to spend with Matt. We're headed down to Cumberland island for an overnight trip and then back home for some sort of festivities. I'm looking forward to taking some pretty pictures down by the coast of Georgia. Perhaps I'll share some with you!

Anyway, this outfit is pretty patriotic-looking to me so I figured it was a good one to share for this holiday weekend. I wear a lot of red, white, and blue because I love how those colors pair together. The nautical vibe is perfect for summertime - not that I don't wear nautical-inspired outfits at other times of the year too. This striped shift dress was from the kids' section at Walmart and I had to get it because it was such a comfy basic piece. I paired a red boyfriend cardigan with it and my sparkly gold glitter loafers.

What are you wearing this weekend? Anything exuberantly patriotic? I have to plan my weekend outfits still - probably just normal ones, not exuberant. I plan on perusing your blogs this evening to get some inspiration though.

Have a fantastic Friday!

Outfit: Purple Silk Top, Sequined Seafoam Skater Skirt, Cateye Glasses and a Dotted Neck Tie

Purple Silk Blouse, Polka Dot Tie, Sequined Green Skater Skirt and Cat Eye Glasses

Any excuse to wear a sequined skirt is a good enough excuse for me. I've worn this skirt on completely normal days too, but this specific outfit was worn at my sister's graduation party. Sequins and parties just go together! There's also a Little Mermaid feel going on with this skirt so I had to eventually pair it with this bold purple silk top. I thrifted this shirt a long while ago and love it but the wrinkles just do not want to come out. I tried my best!

To accessorize, I added a short tie around my neck and my delightfully comfy two-toned Steve Madden flats that I got at Shoe Carnival for $15. Isn't it the best when a pair of shoes actually turn out to be substantially comfortable? It's kind of like a lottery when you buy a pair of shoes. Until you wear them during an entire day of walking around, you just don't know! These, luckily, don't hurt and go with practically everything.

So what do you think? Do you get a Little Mermaid vibe going on here too? I actually wore very similar colors back when I first had my hair dyed bright red. You can see that outfit too: I wore the same purple shirt with my scalloped light green shorts. What can I say? Purple looks really good with light green shades!

Did you all have a good weekend? We had a busy one around Atlanta. Matt and I had wings at a bar on Friday, went to Canada Fest to see Sloan on Saturday, and went to an outdoor art festival yesterday before grocery shopping and making homemade pizzas. All in all, a good weekend. I'd love to hear about yours!

Happy Monday!

Outfit: Green Top with Sheer Floral Detail, Black Floral Shorts, and Yellow Wedges

Green Top with Ruffle Sleeves and Floral Neckline, Black Patterned Shorts, and Yellow Wedge Sandals

Happy Friday everyone! I really like how these pictures turned out from our trip out to Andalusia Farm last month, so I'm excited to share them with you. Matt's becoming pretty handy with my camera when we're out and about. I set the settings and he clicks. It's a great partnership.

I'm also a fan of this outfit - which I guess makes sense since I wore it. The mix of vibrant yellow and green looks perfect against both the green backdrops and the wood of the old farm house. (The house in these pictures was apparently where the dairy family that worked on the farm lived.) I hadn't worn this green top in quite a while so I figured it was time to style it in a new way. I dug up this pair of black floral shorts I got from H&M clearance a long while back and added my bright yellow clearance wedges from Target. I guess I find a lot of things on clearance. 

This was one of those outfits I just kind of threw together last minute, but it turned out great. Even my accessories were thrown together but I think the yellow bow that matches my shoes and my Jord wood watch are perfect accessories for a day outside in humid hot Georgia.

I hope you all have a fun weekend ahead of you. There are a few events going on here in Atlanta on Saturday so we might check some of them out. I'm also looking forward to getting some sleep because for whatever reason I've been extra sleepy this week. What are you doing this weekend?

Have a happy happy Friday!

Work Outfit: Bow Print Dress, Pink Short Sleeved Cardigan, White Sandals, and a Bouffant

White Boohoo Sandals, Bow Print Dress, and Pink Short Sleeved Cardigan

As you can probably tell, I've been experimenting with some photo locations since I moved. I tried with these but my balcony really isn't large enough for outfit photos! These turned out okay though and they're something different. 

I wore this little bow print dress to work the other day. It's the one I bought from the kids' section of Target. (Hooray for being small enough for that! Though it's imperative that an adult shopping in the kids' section can tell the difference between things that could possibly be made for an adult and things that are clearly for humans under 10-years-old. I believe I have the ability to make that judgment.) I paired the dress with a short sleeved cardigan for some color and my white sandals from Boohoo. And look! Another super messy bouffant because why not?

So how is your week going so far? I spent today so incredibly tired for some reason. It was like the sleepiness I experienced for most of high school! I even got plenty of sleep last night. I guess those days just happen though. Other than that, the weekend was good. We had friends over, I was able to play a little Tomb Raider and Matt and I tried out a bakery up the street. Good times!

How was your weekend? I'd love to hear about it! 

I hope you have a wonderful week!
