{outfit} On the 4th of July

I'm a little late posting this outfit, but I didn't want to break up my vacation posts. This is what I wore for our 4th of July get together, which was combined with my brother's high school graduation party. Sadly it rained all day and we were stuck inside, meaning I couldn't take my photos, so I put it on again on Saturday.

After getting dressed I realized basically my whole outfit is from Marshalls, ha ha. Guess that's what happens when a store carries so many designers at great prices!

{outfit} What if...

I wore this outfit a couple weeks ago to an advance screening of Daniel Radcliffe's new film, What If, which will be released next month. My Carven obsession continues with this fun new skirt! I've always had a thing for their prints but never bought any of the pieces until this year because they're a bit pricey. But let me tell you, they are totally worth it! I've worn my Paris print dress a ton and hopefully can say the same for this in a few months time.

Tee: Everlane, Skirt: Carven (NET-A-PORTER End of Season Sale), Sandals: Sam Edelman c/o ThredUp, Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Saks Friends & Family Sale), Necklace: House of Harlow c/o South Moon Under, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Rings: vintage, Brilliant Imports & Mom's, Sunglasses: Cole Haan c/o Marhsalls

{outfit} Crouching Leopard, Hidden Logo

Summer Shopping Challenge Outfits: Look #1 | Look #2 | Look #3 | Look #4

Here's my final outfit for the ThredUp Summer Shopping Challenge! How did I do?  This is the most expensive item I purchased, and it is also the one that contains the least fabric. BUT, it is an adorable Marc Jacobs tank top, so I 'd say it's worth the $33.49 I paid. Or am I crazy? It is super soft and perfect for those hot Summer days!  Can you spot the hidden logo? I also wore the Sam Edelman sandals again, these are definitely going to be a Summer staple, so comfortable! And my favorite color, who doesn't love purple?

{outfit} Easy Does It

Summer Shopping Challenge Outfits: Look #1 | Look #2 | Look #3 | Look #4 [links to come]

We're back at the library again today. I just couldn't resist the marble steps and door for these photos as well. I feel like this outfit would be perfect for a nighttime reception or gala...maybe not though. For this third ThredUp look I styled a MICHAEL Michael Kors caftan that I got for $28.49 (I found the same one on eBay for $54.) I was going to wear it with white jeans, but my old self got the better of me and I reverted to dark gray ones.  They make my legs look skinnier and I don't have to worry about getting them dirty! Ha ha.

{outfit} White-Out

Summer Shopping Challenge Outfits: Look #1 | Look #2 | Look #3 | Look #4 [links to come]

Here is the second outfit in my ThredUp Summer Shopping Challenge posts! This is something I never though I would find myself wearing: an almost ALL WHITE look! What is happening to me?  I picked up this adorable Studio 1 blouse for only $4.99! I'm very into prints come Summer time so it's great to have more options now. Tomorrow's outfit will also have a great graphic print.

Also, can we talk about the door behind me! Lydia's town library is so perfect for photos! We made sure to go back and use it again for another outfit (tomorrow's, in fact.) I never mind driving the 35 minutes to her for photos because there are so many great locations, and it's more fun taking photos with a friend than with a tripod.
