Have I mentioned my hair is long enough for cute little baby pig tails? So excited about this. If you have shorter hair I would recommend this, it’s super easy and quick.

Here are two ways to style your shift: heels + boyfriend jeans or go bare legged + some sassy sneakers!

shift dress: Anthropologie on sale for $50 (similar) // boyfriend jean: Gap // heels: similar // sneakers: Superga // satchel: similar // sunnies: similar

The selling point for me on this dress was the leather pockets, oh and the sale price from Anthropologie! So sorry I couldn’t find it on there site—l literally just got it last week! There is a similar dress is the links above though.

I’ve been obsessively reading this book preparing for my trip to Paris in August—more on that later!

Yes, those are lace bike shorts under my dress—hey a girls got to places to go! Toodles!

This is one of those girly meets punk looks. Similar to the Rough Meets Romantic post I did, here. It’s fun to mix unexpected pieces together. I could easily see this outfit working with a backpack or cross body bag for a more on-the-go look.

I found a Pinterest board called “edgy Chic”, which has more ideas on how to style this type of look, see here. You could try pairing a leather jacket with a lace or floral dress. Really, if you put together any ultra girly item like a skirt or dress with a pair of edgy boots you can pull off the look. If you’ve styled an girly/edgy look I’d love to see it. Send me a link in the comments! Have a great week!

I love blue. I actually wore it as an employee uniform for 7 years. Can you believe that—7 YEARS?! I worked at Best Buy through out high school, college and wee bit after college until I found a big kid job. So needless to say, the color lights up an old spark for me. This pattern on the dress is called damask—I feel pretty fancy for knowing that thanks to my mama! She is major interior design nerd. I love to quiz her on different architecture and design terms. She never fails!

A view from the alley where we were shooting. It looks much prettier looking up rather than where we were standing. We actually had to wait in the car to give a bum privacy while he finished peeing before we could start shooting. Oh, Sacramento!

This dress works for a more curvy body type, it tapers in at the waist and hits right above the knee. It’s a very traditional cut but feels modern of the colour vibrancy and pattern play. And seriously, how can you be disappointed with a dress that has a jeweled peter pan collar?! I will show off more of it once I get it tailored. I’m working on making more work place friendly outfit ideas for you guys. We’re in the process of re-designing my website and will soon have functioning categories to chose from. (think: casual, party, work, weekend, etc). Yay!
