This outfit. You guys. Oh my gooosshhh. I absolutely love outfits that incorporate different shades of the same color. That is one of the many reason why I am so in love with this outfit. Brown and tan and gold, oh my! You would not believe the awesome steal I got on this dress! I’m talking less than $9 people! And no, it was not thrifted. I had been eyeing it for quite some time (I’m talking over six months), and it finally went on super sale during the summer. I snatched it up quickly and patiently waited for the first chilly day I could don it with my cream turtleneck. This is one of those outfits that just puts a little pep in my step and makes me feel really good about myself. I think it’s the combination of feeling a little more dressed up than normal and also wearing some of my favorite shades for my coloring. As soon as I saw this dress way back when I knew there would be a multitude of outfits I could style with it and I can’t wait to wear them all! Hope you guys are having an awesome Friday!
A while back I told Mandi that I wanted a simple brown purse I could pair with virtually any outfit. We were out shopping one day (what’s new?), and she picked up the most beautiful purse I’d ever seen! It was exactly what I was looking for. I’m not going to lie, I was quite jealous of her find and kept staring at it while she carried it around the store. She was talking about how excited she was to wear it, and I was picturing all the outfits she could pair with it. Fast forward a couple months to my birthday. I could tell she was super excited to give me my gift. As I peered in the bag, I saw the beautiful brown leather straps and was both very confused and very excited. I pulled it out of the bag, and she explained how she’d bought the purse right in front of me and made it a point to act like it was for herself so as not to give it away. What a clever and sneaky trick! And what an awesome and thoughtful friend I have! I’ve been wearing this purse basically nonstop since then. You can expect to see it in lots of future posts!
