You guys are probably getting sick of my Illinois outfits. I'm sorry! I wore a lot of clothes there? I'm finally getting through my backlog so you'll be seeing more recent stuff very soon.
This is actually what I wore on Christmas Eve, so it's a little fancier than my usual outfits. Any excuse to break out this black cape (capelet?) is a good enough excuse for me. I spent more than I should have on it and I hardly get to use it because capes, while adding instant classiness, are kind of an awkward bit of outerwear. Like what do you do with your arms if they're not covered? I solved that issue by wearing a black cardigan underneath which may have negated some of the classiness of the cape, but oh well. Warmth is important.
dress: modcloth | capelet: prabal gurung - target | tights: forever 21 | shoes: madden girl - shoe carnival | necklace: gift | belt: thrifted
It was windy so enjoy my goofily parted bangs.
This blue lace dress is actually one of my favorite Modcloth purchases, but I've only worn it for special occasions. I fully intend on styling it in a more casual manner as soon as I have the chance. You can't see it in the pictures but it has a slight sparkle in the lace which equals fanciness in my book. How would you wear a dress like this on a casual day?
I know I don't say this enough, but thank you for reading my blog and being so kind in your comments. I'm hoping this blog will continue to improve in the new year and that you still enjoy seeing what I'm wearing and whatever other things I post about!
