"Everyday is a fashion show and the world is your runway." -Coco Chanel
Who doesn't love an excuse to go out + buy a new outfit? The Frances Jaye + Spring Sweet Fashion event was the perfect occasion to pick up a couple new things to wear. But since I wanted more money in my pocket to spend at the event I looked around for inexpensive + stylish pieces that I would wear again. I also wanted to find an outfit that would go well with my new wedges from Hush Puppies.
I found this green pleated dress at H&M for $9.99! YES PLEASE! Its super light weight, soft, and versatile. At home I tried it on with a belt, leather jacket, a tied a shirt over top and they all looked amazing! It comes in multiple colors. WIN!
Being a mom of 4, I find myself in Target way too often which eventually leads me to finding more clothes I want to buy! As I was about to head to check out I stumbled upon this beautiful floral kimono and I quickly snagged the last one in my size and threw it in my cart. I was unsure at the time if I would like it with the dress, but I once I tried it on together - tags were poppin'.
Aren't these shoes from Hush Puppies SOOO cute? ah! I'm still so excited about these new guys joining the closet. They are smooth + soft on my feet! Probably the most comfortable pair of shoes I own currently. That is not a lie. They are super easy to dress up or down which is important to me since I'm constantly changing outfits as mom. I also loved that the straps are adjustable so I can get the perfect fit + walk in them confidently.
It was SO hot + humid out! So my hair went flat pretty quickly, but my amazing sister-in-law styled my hair for the evening and took that stress off my plate for the day. Honest moment here - I am absolutely terrible at doing my hair - I have no hand coordination to really do anything cute to it by myself. yikes! So I called Beth (@bethgarnerhairstylist) + she helped this girl out!
