Woah! I haven't updated the ol'fashion blog in a hot minute! It's been a bit of a hectic but exciting time in my life as I'm going through some transitions. Among many things, I'm hoping these changes will allow me to allocate more time to this blog.
Speaking of transitions, the summer wardrobe is in full swing cuz boy is it hot here. As a kid I wasn't big on dresses but now I find them quite refreshing, literally. Any article of clothing that doesn't stick to me in the blazin' Texas sun gets bonus points in my book.
This color block dress has been part of my closest for quite some time. I, like I am sure many of you, am on a budget. I believe in investing wisely on your wardrobe. I try not to by anything that I don't absolutely love! I would rather spend money on a single piece I love than get 3 pieces of clothing that I just feel "egh" about for the same amount of money. If you really love something it is more likely to become a staple of your closet for years to come. Update your look with new shoes and accessories and no one will know you've had that bad boy since the days Facebook was your only social media account.
Like I said, I've had this dress for a long time and every time I wear it I get compliments! If you see an article of clothing and it speaks to you get it! Don't settle for clothes or boys(or girls) you feel ambivalent about! I remember loving this dress from day one and I am glad I got it. And while I don't remember how much I paid for it, I know it was affordable because I got it at Forever21. Here I've styled it with knee high socks, a hat, and my favorite pair of dress shoes and really, these accessories are the stars of the show. You don't have to restock your entire wardrobe every season or year to look fly! Ain't nobody got time/money for that!
