Easily swayed

I spotted two other bloggers wearing this maxi dress, and when I found out it was only $26, I had no choice but to throw it in my cart! I was very anxious to wear it, but it was way too long to wear with flats so I got creative and folded it up at the waist line and secured it with the belt. It held up surprising well throughout the day.

So happy for another weekend - the weather has been glorious lately and I hate not getting to enjoy it be stuck in an office all day.

Wear to work

Nothing can beat the ease of a dress when dealing the with both the summer heat and the morning stress of choosing an outfit in under ten minutes, but every once in awhile (when the humidity is low) I like to mix things up and actually put on a pair of pants.

Black and white always manages to feel more professional and put together than any other combination of bright color and pattern, but I still feel like I can't leave the house without a little something special, so the shiny studded sandals come into play. I will wear these babies until they fall apart, I love them so.

Warm weather staples

I never imagined I'd be one to embrace a crop top, but somehow I got sucked into the draw of their cuteness and the ease of not having to worry about finagling the perfect half tuck. The gingham shorts are from my outlet trip, and I love the classic summery print. All the shorts at the Loft Outlet were on sale for only $15, and had the pair of chambray scalloped shorts been in my size, I would have snapped those up to, because I'm a scalloped hem addict.

I've also realized I only want to buy nude sandals this summer. Even though I've been wanting something bright and fun, when it comes down to the actual purchase I keep ending up with nude. This pair now makes three. Oops. But at least I got them at DSW, combined two coupons and a gift card and didn't have to spend a cent out of pocket. They are super comfortable and I'm wondering if it would be wrong to get them in black too.
