Never Mind What Anybody Else Done



sundress: thrifted via Beacon's Closet ($14) ~ vest: Old Navy ($14 with coupon) ~ sandals: Elle via Kohls (approx. $35) ~ cuff & bangle: gifts ~ earrings: Limited ($?? - pretty old!)

Ensemble message:  Instead of fighting the last month or so of summer, I’m embracing it!  I heart this sundress, which is a thrift store find.  From the big floral print to the ruffled neckline, I loved it the moment I tried it on.  BUT!  The straps are super skinny… instead of spaghetti straps, they’re more like angel hair straps (ba dum dum! ;) 



Anyway, instead of covering up with a cardigan, I layered with my new fave – the camper vest!  Pairing the vest and dress together, along with pulled back hair, reminds me of Kyla from Blue Collar Catwalk.  She rocks her vests and totally inspired me to buy this one! 


Of course, I’m still technically sleeveless, so I don’t recommend this look for everyone.  Some office dress policies require sleeves, but you can get a similar look with a safari blouse.
