outfit post: june 2014 recent purchases & shopping wishlist

Little bit more shopping trickling in lately. Stopped into Old Navy to take a quick peek (it's next to our Target which is an evil combo for my wallet) and found two amazing dresses that I fell in love with. Plus the Target sandals and silver heels I mentioned in earlier blog posts. And finally a really cute striped trapeze dress I bought from Asos. And added a few other items that I'm looking to find in the near future...
  • Sunburst Chiffon Maxi (purchase) - I tried this dress on and it was amazing. Flow-y and pretty. Perfect for everything summer. Love love love.
  • Embroidered Shift (purchase) - Another Old Navy find. So many times the clothes at Old Navy either seem cheap/poorly made or else they fit really weirdly but then every so often I come across a random great item that I end up wearing to death. And I an tell this dress will fall into the 'wear to death' category. Pretty and nice fabric and love the loose fit. Really sad it's sold out online.
  • Striped Swing Dress (purchase) -  Another great summer dress. Soft stretchy jersey fabric with some breathing room just in case you eat too much BBQ. Love it!
  • Silver Heeled Sandal (purchase) - Bought these pretty silver heels to accompany my new blue lace overlay 'dressy dress' I wore to a New Orleans wedding last week. They are really cute but not super comfortable. I made it through helping the bridesmaids get ready, ceremony, second-line parade and part of the reception before I had to switch to flipflops in my clutch.
  • Brown wedge sandal (purchase) - I love love love sandals I picked up at Target. (They remind me a lot of these $188 J.Crew ones.) Comfy, cute and I feel like they update a lot of my existing summer clothes by being a 'current' sandal style with the single front strap.
  • Leopard Clutch (wishlist) - I keep seeing leopard clutches being held by both celebrities and cute bloggers. While I'm not quite a full leopard print dress/shirt person - I do love a fun pop of pattern in an otherwise neutral outfit. I think a leopard clutch is a really cute & fun way to do that. I would love to find an inexpensive option.
  • Station Necklace (wishlist) - My Scandal Netflix binge made me fall in love with all the pretty delicate station necklace's that Kerry Washington wears on the show. So pretty. So professional. I want to find one that looks decent quality but doesn't cost a ton.
  • White Skirt (wishlist) - I like my white jeans for sometimes in the summer but as Florida gets cranked up to full heat & humidity they are basically impossible to wear outside without dying. So I was thinking an airy white skirt could be a cute & bareable alternative.
  • Bright Swim Cover-up (wishlist) - I have quite a few navy or white or batik/ikat swim coverups. But considering the amount of time I spend in my swimsuit - I'd like to add one more in a fun bright color - coral or pink or teal seem like fun colors.


  1. I love all the dresses you've bought lately! I guess I need to check out Old Navy's dresses one of these days.
    I bought a full white skirt recently for the same reason--it just gets too dang hot to wear any kind of denim here in Alabama in the summertime! You've inspired me to wear my new skirt this week :)

  2. I just bought that Old Navy dress last week...Love it!!

  3. I saw the wedges at Target! I'm always leery about buying open-toed shoes... They never seem to look right, but these one are great :)

  4. I ♡ your blog, but I haven't seen anything new for about a week. I check it daily for inspiration. Whether I'm at home with my kids or working I love to see your ideas for mixing it up!
