OOTD_91 "Cactus in the valley"

DSC_0917 I've recently found that I'm having trouble making my outfits interesting and have depth as the days get warmer because I'm not able to layer as much as I'd like. The perfect solution to this problem is a vest. The cut of it still leaves you cool, but you've added some dimension to your outfit as well. I have 4 vests in my closet (3 of them DIYed!) that I think will be getting a lot of wear in the coming months.

The track for today's outfit post is "Cactus in the valley" by Lights, whose music I have featured on here before in this outfit post. Listen along here while you view!

DSC_0728 This weekend I've spent hours on hours in studio working towards the mid-review I have on Wednesday, so when taking breaks to meet up with my friends for lunch, I seized the opportunity to change out of my sweats and put on something cute! I was looking for an outfit to style this new satchel I picked up at Target which I eyed forever until I snagged it for 8 bucks! It was the perfect match for this summery dress from an inexpensive store at home. The weather this weekend was so warm and sunny--it put me in the best mood!

I also love how versatile this dress is. Another one of my favorite ways to style it can be seen in this outfit post.
