Geometric 70s Shirt Under a Little Black Dress

This shirt is one of the more ridiculous button down shirts I've thrifted. It's pretty 70's-tastic with its elongated  pointed collar and polyester goodness, but I love it mostly for the fun geometric print. Plus it mixes red and blue and I love those colors together!

Since it's such a bold shirt, I tend to let it shine on its own with other solid colors. I've worn it with red and blue pencil skirts before, but I figured I'd try layering it under a little black dress this time. Nobody gave me the side eye yesterday, so that's a win in my book.

dress: poof apparel - ross dress for less | shirt: vintage - thrifted | blue flats: xhileration - target | red hair bow: forever 21





Today is made approximately 67% better because I found a giant bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs hidden behind some stuff in my coffee & tea shelf. I assume I hid them from my boyfriend because he likes to scrounge for snacks. Or I hid them so I would find them this year as a wonderful surprise! Either way, they exist and they taste delicious. 

Do you guys have a fun weekend planned? Mine will be full of reading for class, writing papers, and possibly sneaking in some video games. I'm living on the edge!

Happy Friday!

That actually sounds like a nice weekend to me! I like not doing much at all - but I dont miss homework on the weekend for sure. And I LOVE that blouse - seriously how amazing is that print?!?!

Oh my goodness, this outfit is adorable! I really need to start doing this kind of layering; I always admire it when other girls wear a button-down under a dress and I think it's adorable, but I never think of it myself! Cadbury Mini Eggs yummmmm! Sounds like a lovely weekend to me :)
