OOTD: Shifty

I'm not a huge shift dress girl.  Sure I like shift dresses on other girls, but on me?  Not so much.  However, this little number may have converted me.  The bright blue and white colors along with the playful design just really make me happy.  This dress is perfect for a day spent shopping with friends or out to lunch.  It's so light and airy that it's absolutely perfect for these super hot days we've been experiencing here in LA.

So, if you're like me, and you shy away from shift dresses, be bold and go try one on.  You  may be pleasantly surprised at what you see.  :)

What I'm Wearing:

Dress - c/o Motel Rocks 
Sandals - TopShop via Nordstrom (super similar to Birkenstocks but 1/2 the price!)
Handbag - Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag 
Earrings - Forever 21, similar here
Bracelet - c/o Two Lil Birds similar here 
Midi Rings - Brandy Melville, same style NastyGal 
Thin Gold Bands - H&M, similar style here & here

Today's "Steal of the Day" is a collage of Delicate Necklaces and all are $50 or less!  I like to switch up my jewelry pretty often, so a lot of times, I don't want to spend a lot on one single piece.  So If you're like me, then these pieces will be great for you!

2. Stella & Dot "On The Mark" arrow necklace (a personal favorite of mine!) silver $49

OOTD: Change It Up!

We all have that dress that we love so much and think to ourselves, "Man! I wish that the top of this dress was a shirt."  Or, "I wish the bottom of this dress was a skirt."  So why not wear that dress you love so much that way?!  

Don't get me wrong, I love this dress the way it is, but I really love the top of this dress because of the cut and the color.  Y'all probably remember the skirt below from my "Summer Shopping Haul" video with Melissa Ordway which you can watch here.  I love love the full skirt trend that we're seeing right now (mostly because my heart belongs in the 1940's- I was born in the wrong era!)  When I popped this skirt on over this dress, my heart sang!  I love this look below.  This combo is just so pretty and super feminine.

What I'm Wearing: 

Dress - c/o Foreign Exchange loving this dress 
Shoes - c/o Prima Donna these Steve Madden's are still my fave nude heels 
Necklace - c/o Prima Donna, love this necklace 
Sunnies - Free People 
Bracelet - similar here and steal of a deal here 
Midi Skirt - Foreign Exchange also love this skirt
