Love me an LBD. This one I don’t know why but I hardly have worn it since I bought it three years ago. I’ve mentioned before I have trouble wearing dresses. I always feel over done and I really don’t know why. I wore dresses as a child a lot. This dress is really cute and I can’t believe Joe Fresh produced it. It’s hard to get all the details of a black dress on camera, it is silk, with two slits on the side up to the knee area. It cinches at the waist which is flattering and gives you some shape or you’d look like a sack. The neck detail is also really cool, I wish I had gotten a closer photo for you. This dress is super effortless chic and perfectly light and breezy on a hot summer’s day like this day in particular. I just threw on some loafers, black sunnies and a black backpack (not pictured as it was stuffed with Value Village finds).

There are no words for how obsessed I am with this dress and I can not believe I found it at VV boutique. It’s BCBG so it was “pricey” for Value Village which is why I think it was still there. I love the white gothic lace feel. It still gives me that witchy vibe without feeling demonic, if you get what I mean. This dress is megaaaa hot so it’s not exactly a “Summer” dress so it’ll be great for late summer early fall. I see this dress working best for a garden party, baby shower, dinner party (if you’re careful) unfortunately not a wedding.

Something about navy and white striped anything that gives you a nautical feel. I really like pairing something like this was deep cherry red pop of accesories or nails and keep everything else super neutral. I’ve had these shorts for a few years so unfortunately you can no longer find them at joe. Though I wish they would re-do this design because they’re so comfortable and I wish I had bought more. They’re we’re only $39 and they’re silk, like hello! I also wish I had bought the matching top but you live and you learn right! I found this top at Value Village and instantly wanted to pair it with these shorts. So, who has a boat I can hop aboard?

This whole outfit is very “thrifty”. Either from value Village or on heavy sale, or found a discount store. I love a good deal! I like to invest in key pieces that will last me forever but when it comes to “trends” finding them at a deal is important. I’ve been really into this gingham trend lately and found this top at VV boutique and I was so surprised to find this piece there. It’s definitely an at home made piece, no tags or branding which made me want to buy it even more. I’m really into the floral detailing, it reminds me of something you would find on the Revolve website. Through blogging lately I’ve noticed how much of my wardrobe is either from VV or thrifted of which I love. I think all together this entire outfit cost less than $50! Win.
