So first up. This outfit is from a wedding we went to at the beginning of September. We had 3 weddings back to back weekends earlier this month! (Part of why I've been sooo busy and neglectful of my blog:) Luckily, they were all local.
Dress: White House Black Market 2008
Shoes: Aerosole 2007
Necklace: Forever 21 Fall 2009
I don't often shop at Black House White Market. I'm not sure why, everything I've ever bought from there I have loved. I have 4 dresses from there that I constantly rotate through for weddings. This dress has attended 2 other weddings before this one. I like the fit and I think the lace makes it edgy without being too provocative. The shoes are old Aerosoles that I found at the back of my closet. I've never even worn them! I also have them in brown and they are really comfortable! The necklace is a great Forever 21 jewelry find...a double strand pearl necklace with a pearl and diamante brooch! Love it!
Next up is an outfit from when my husband and I met some friends out for dinner and drinks. I had spent the entire weekend in jeans and flipflops and I really wanted to dress up. I threw this look together.
Dress: Lauren Conrad for Kohls (picked up on sale for $20.) I bought 2!
Cropped Jean Jacket: Ann Taylor Loft spring 2010
Shoes: Ann Taylor Strappy Sandals (no longer online)
Necklace: Forever21 Box Chain Diamante twist (No longer but purchased in store last weekend)
Purse (not shown): Gucci Joy Medium Shoulder Bag (click here) (Mine has brown trim)
Watch: Michael Kors Tortoise Chronograph Watch (click here)
This dress is a definite closet staple for me. It is a heavy jersey material with an exposed silver back zip. It has Pockets....LOVE! and a sweet heart neckline....double LOVE! It is just ultra flattering! I've worn it with flipflops or strappy sandals as shown. Wore the denim jacket because it was a little chilly at night! Quick, easy, cute outfit!
