Navy Gravy

IMG_8624I got navy tights. It’s about time. I feel like they’ve been missing from my wardrobe for a lifetime. Navy feels very fresh this season, don’t you think? Shout out to Ms. Darcy from Hello Luvvy for taking these pictures; she also posted this lovely recap of our (what is becoming a monthly) collaboration. Stay tuned for another glittering (hint!) project!

What I Wore: Winter in the Tropics

(what I wore: dress – vintage from The Grey Dog, blazer – f21, tights – hue, pumps – jessica simpson, earrings – f21, tutu as slip – ebay, lips – covergirl outlast + lip perfection as seen here)
I love making summer dresses work in the winter. Sometimes the easiest way to do that is with a dress that has black in it. This tropical dress is so summery on it’s own but with the black tights and blazer, it works for winter as well.
Here is the dress from summer…

And today…

What I Wore: A tutu, among other things

(what I wore: blouse – vintage from potter’s house thrift, skirt – old navy, tutu – dance supply store, tights – hue, boots – aldo, jewelry – vintage and forever21)
Every time I put these thigh-high heeled boots on I feel a little like Hooker McCanIWearthistoWork. However, I believe they can be done in a ‘tasteful & edgy’ way instead of a ‘streetwalker – pretty woman’ way. Hopefully that was accomplished with this outfit. Either way, I didn’t get walked out by HR, so no matter.

What I Wore: Winter White

(what I wore: dress – impressions, tights – hue, booties – asos, earrings – kate spade)
This sweet little dress will forever remind me of my wedding. I wore it to our day-after brunch, where I promptly ate carbs for the first time in a month.That didn’t go over so well but anyway, all in all it was such a lovely experience where I was able to speak to so many loved ones that I didn’t have a chance to at our wedding. Alas, I digress. Here is how I wore it that day (with some of my sweet college friends).

What do you think? Does it work with the black tights? I am obsessed with the booties I have on but I think they may not work with this look. It might need more of a platform since the dress is a longer length and I am a shorty.
PS: the booties are $27 on asos.com right now!

What I Wore: Cotton Candy

(what I wore: dress & belt – vintage from cheap thrills, sweater – vintage from potter’s house, tights & earrings – forever21, platforms – bcbg)
I felt like a confection in this outfit. I threw it all together but I think it worked. The sweater (also seen here) is absolutely divine. I hope you’re having a good week! xo

What I Wore: Sequins

(what i wore: sequin jacket – vintage from potter’s house ($3!), shift – tj maxx, tights – dkny, platforms – nine west, lips – covergirl lip perfection in hot)
I haven’t posted an outfit lately. I’ve been feeling so frumpy and lazy and have been sick for what seems like weeks. ppppppoooor me! I’ve found an incredible amount of cheap and fabulous jackets/blazers/sweaters at this creepy little thrift. It’s quite exhilarating to find something fabulous for under $5! I’ve also been into wearing a bold red lip and not much else in the form of beauty regimen.
