Dress Restyle

IMG_2677 Since cleaning out my closet as I mentioned in this post, I've been able to see more clearly the pieces that I haven't worn in a while. Today I spotted this lace tee in my closet that I've typically just worn with jeans, but figured I could also layer it over a dress with a quick knot to add shape! I love the look and it helps because the dress is a little low-cut for a school day. I can't wait to create more knotted tee and dress combos!

"Double Vision"

IMG_0808 I really love the ability to pair boots and dresses together in the spring, so I'm capitalizing on the opportunity because it gives me a chance to wear my Docs more often, which is always a good thing. I love that I picked these pieces up at inexpensive places, but they form a really good look. Especially this dress. I've had it for a while and it is from TJ Maxx, but it is probably the most flattering dress I own. I love great finds like that from unexpected places.

The outfit track for today is "Double Vision" by 3OH!3. Mostly because it reminded me of spring vibes (wishing I was still on spring break) and also because I hadn't given that group a listen in a while. Listen along below while you view!

I filmed this video with my iPhone over the past couple of weeks because I have noticed how much vests are becoming a staple of my spring wardrobe. I love how they add a layer to your outfit, without making you too warm. Check out the video and I have also included photos with outfit details below if you are curious!

OOTD_90: "Tough And Girly"

DSC_0932 Today's #coasttocoastchallenge was "Tough and Girly." Since a feminine yet edgy look is basically my every day style, I decided to go all out by contrasting some of my most edgy pieces with this very girly floral dress.

A big part of the making this outfit "tough" is the fit of this vest. The oversized piece really tones down the flowy dress to make it a little more casual. I also wouldn't normally pair two studded pieces together, but I really like how all of the silver accents are picking up in this look.
