Outfit: Food Pop Art Novelty Print Dress, Purple Cardigan, and Black Sandals

Hamburger, Hotdog, and Milkshake Pop Art Dress, Purple Cardigan, and Black Sandals

I bought this amazingly fun Good Enough to Eat dress from Modcloth a while back but had to wait to wear it because the sleeves had to be taken up! I'm kind of in love with it. For its debut I wore it while apartment hunting in Atlanta. Of course I ended up a little sunburned from walking around in the sun. Except my face because my lotion has sunscreen in it! (Small victories.)

Anyway, I kept it simple with a purple cardigan - that you may have seen a couple posts ago in a work outfit - and my comfy black fisherman sandal-like heels. I want to wear this dress again as soon as I can but I haven't yet figured out if I can get away with it at work. Maybe on a casual day...

I found this graffiti covered underpass surrounding a part of the Atlanta BeltLine and knew it'd be a perfect background for this dress. Matt kindly snapped a couple pictures while people walked along, enjoying the sunny day.

This weekend is moving weekend so I'll be pretty busy doing that! I'm hoping after we're settled in I'll have some extra time for fun things and blog stuff. My commute sure will be fantastic since I'll be able to walk to work instead of sitting in traffic for 2.5+ hours each day! I'm pretty pumped about getting those hours back.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and great Memorial Day!

Happy Monday everyone! This outfit was a fun weekend look from a couple weeks ago. Matt and I hung out on the porch for a little while, enjoying the relatively mild warmth before Georgia turns into a fiery inferno. I miss wearing my short skater skirts during the work week so I've been taking advantage of them on the weekends. (I think I'd be able to wear some of them in the cool months with tights though! Looking forward to that.) This red skirt is so much fun and I couldn't believe I hadn't worn it with my polka dot button-down from H&M yet. Black, white, and red is always a good color combination in my book so I loved how this outfit turned out!

I hope you all have a wonderful week to look forward to. I get to go to a digital marketing conference a couple days this week which will mix up my work day a bit. Then I'll be preparing for the move into the city! I get to inspect the apartment and everything this week. Things are happening! I'll be happy when the actual physical moving is over though.

Have a great start to your week!

Happy Friday! It's time for another work outfit to feast your eyes upon! I wore this a few weeks back during a client meeting and for the rest of the day. I've had this black pencil skirt in my closet but hardly wore it because it was a potential interview piece. I styled it with my checkerboard print top , silver shoes, and a purple cardigan. 

It's definitely easy to incorporate pieces from your regular wardrobe into a work outfit when you have basic pieces. (Though I'm not the best at investing in staple pieces. Colorful or patterned clothes always interest me so much more!) Throwing your normal clothes into your work clothes rotation just makes your work wardrobe more "you." I'm not giving up colors or patterns or my bright hair!

How has your week been? I've been busy with work and am looking forward to some sleep this weekend. We'll be doing plenty of errands to get ready for our move downtown next week too! Maybe I'll relax after that's all over! 

Sorry for the brief post but I'm nearly falling asleep trying to get this post up. I'm looking forward to catching up with all of your blogs and lives soon!

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend ahead!

Outfit: Hot Pink Lace Dress, Floral Print Cardigan, and Nude Heels

Spring Outfit: Pink Lace Dress, Floral Print Cardigan, and Tan Heels

Happy Monday everyone! I'm a bit backlogged with my pictures so today's post is what I wore on Easter. I figured a bright pink dress and floral cardigan were a good choice for the spring holiday. I picked up this dress for under $20 at Ross a little bit ago because I figured it'd be a great work dress. Plus I don't have a lot of pink pieces in my wardrobe which is a shame because I really like wearing pink! (Though I really like wearing pretty much any color...)

Anyway, I paired my new dress with a thrifted woven belt, my surprisingly comfortable nude peep toe heels, and a floral cardigan I bought right before I started college. I like how pretty much everything matches in this look. Sometimes I want to mismatch and other times I want everything to go together. It just depends on my mood!

So what do you think of my new pink dress? How would you style it? I need some more ideas so I can remix it for work a few times! I think it was a perfect choice for Easter dinner though!

Did you have a good weekend? I spent mine celebrating my little sister's graduation from college and then spending the day with my mom on Sunday for Mother's Day. I feel like I didn't get a whole ton done and the next couple weeks will be incredibly busy, but it was a good weekend!

I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!
