Every girl loves a pretty dress that can be dressed up or down, right? I found one! This dress is actually on super sale and almost sold out. I hesitated all season because my local GAP did not carry it in store and I wasn’t sure about the print without seeing it in person. I’m glad I finally gave it a chance! I was pleasantly surprised and very happy with the fit and feminine flare of this dress. It covers enough skin to feel safe for work and can be dressed down with nice sandals for date night. They make a plaid version also and I’m really bummed my size is sold out online. I highly recommend it for fall! It would look super cute with a cardigan with cooler temps. I’m definitely going to be checking GAP’s website daily for re-stocks.
**FLASH SALE ALERT**
I was going to wait til tomorrow to post this dress, until just now Loft sent me an e-mail — they are having a flash sale and it’s on sale + an extra 70% off!
I wore this dress today and got so many compliments! At least 3 people asked where I purchased it from. I do recommend going down one size — I’m also wearing a petite. HAPPY SHOPPING! 🙂
One of the my favorite things to wear to work is a plain t-shirt and nice pencil skirt. Somehow it just works, especially in a “business casual” environment – and makes it so easy to get dressed in the morning! A graphic tee works great also with a plain pencil skirt. This skirt is also on super sale and an extra 50% off.
Another day, another pencil skirt! #sorrynotsorry 🙂
Today’s outfit is so simple, but I love it! I went to the pool this morning and needed to run errands this afternoon, so this was the easiest option in my closet. A comfy dress + comfy sandals + simple necklace = the best formula! This dress is also on sale ($16.99!) and comes in black & pink. My handbag is also on sale for $65 off!
I gotta say, although I love all of the bright pinks, corals, mints, and teal colors in my closet (and will surely snag the clearance summer deals!), I am also excited to move onto fall colors and see what retailers release soon for their fall line-up.
Have you seen the Pantone Fall 2015 Color Report? Although I don’t only buy items in these colors, I do try and use their color reports as a guide on mixing and matching things in my closet. Instyle Magazine usually releases a similar guide every spring and fall which is really great also! But, aren’t these colors so pretty?! Fall fashion is my favorite time of year (if you couldn’t tell already 🙂 ).
I have so missed blogging here! I thought it would get easier, and then my husband (aka the photographer) went back to work full-time, I had to start studying for boards, I went back to work, and then life… happened? I guess that’s as good an excuse as any! Things have started to slow down a tiny bit since I have one board exam out of the way (one more to go!) and I really want to try and get at least 3 outfit posts a week.
I picked up this tank recently from Nordstrom when it went on sale (only $16!), it comes in a slew of colors, and was happy to add it to my ever growing collection of tank tops in the summer heat. I could easily see myself pairing it with jeans in the fall or a skirt to dress it up a bit. For the price, it’s definitely a thumbs up in my book!
Most of my posts recently have been a pretty typical “weekend uniform” for me with casual outfits. I’m crossing my fingers and toes I can get back to work soon. They say everything moves slower in Florida – apparently that includes the board of pharmacy. Until then – enjoy another weekend uniform. 🙂
