AFTER #1

I wore this last spring when it was much warmer (See: Starbucks iced bevvie) and popped a squat at Pottery Barn Kids while enjoying a little Star Wars coloring.  You know, like you do when you’re an adult, or tween disguised as a grown lady :)

It’s a little chillier this go, so I had to dress it appropriately.  Wanna see??

I took a navy striped Banana Republic cardigan and paired it on top of the short sleeved dress along with some brown floral tights and a pair of vintage boots!

AFTER #2

Oh, and those earrings, they’re totally costume.  I got them for a buck and the best part is that they’re clip-ons!

The sunglasses were the final, sunny day touch.

A touch of pink…

Tights, Target // Earrings, downtown LA // Sunglasses, Urban Outfitters // Boots, Vintage // Cardigan, Banana Republic (thrifted)

It was fun pairing this dress with some darker shades, just to bring out more of the blue in the piece.  It also totally helped to downplay the boldness of the pinks, greens, and oranges, making it feel a little more subtle.  It’s so much fun to re-wear and re-style!!

Happy Friday, friends!
