This is one of my favorite summer dresses but sadly, I might have to give this cute little number up. This no longer fits like I want it to so I might have to give it up soon. For this hot and steamy day I decided to pair it with contrasting taupe faux-snake sandals and a crochet-ish clutch. The sunglasses where just my touch of coolness.
Hope you enjoy.

It’s been a struggle trying to blog lately. I recently moved and I have been trying to hold my life together. I did go thrift shopping the other day and boy did I find wonderful goodies. I will be sharing them on a different segment on my blog in the next coming days. This top was actually from that trip 🙂
Top: Jealous Tomato ( Goodwill – thrifted )
Shoes: Madden Girl
Clutch: Jessica Simpson
Today, I borrowed a few tips from the boys. I love menswear – the suits, the jackets, the blazers, the pants, the shoes…I can go on and on. The top really inspired this look because the bow really makes it seems as if I were wearing a tie as opposed to a knot made on the shirt. Once I put the top on and made the bow, I knew that I was going to be wearing my high-waisted gingham pants. It is the perfect piece to wear with this gorgeous top. This is a nice subtle yet chic way of borrowing pieces from the boys without looking too masculine. I kept the outfit simple by wearing black heels, a black clutch & a black coat ( it’s been chilly). In order to give it that extra “POW” I side swept my curls and wore a bold red lip.
I love how this outfit came out nicely because it reminds me of the 50’s – back when women wore high-waisted pants, gorgeous hair and red lips. The pants look extremely slimming and the top is just the perfect piece that really makes this outfit standout. I recently purchased this top from Loft by Ann Taylor ( outlet ) as they were having a huge sale. The pants are also from Ann Taylor but these were purchased at goodwill and I have a feeling these probably date back a few years.
