I wore this dress, but with these shoes: I got the shoes from a consignment shop for only $2!
I wish I had remembered to get more pictures of my other friends - but at least I got a picture of what Jessica wore:
I wish I could have gotten a better picture of the necklace...it was particularly striking!

This style of dress In Style claimed was the "It" dress of the season. Cut to right above the knee, it is a flattering dress on most any body type. It is an easy dress to dress up or dress down, and of course, it's ridiculously comfortable! The embellishment on the neckline means you don't even have to find a necklace to go with it (although some great bracelets would definitely add chic points to this ensemble).
Anne wore this dress with Steve Madden brown/gold metallic wedges to a wedding this past weekend and looked absolutely stunning!
Dress - Kohl's - $24.99
Steve Madden wedges - Ross - $14.99

This is me feeling like a princess...'cause...well...flowy white dresses make me feel like a princess. :-)
You will see this dress again because I plan on wearing it with different belts, jackets, and will eventually hem it to knee-length. But for now - I'm wearing it long with this pink sash. Wouldn't this outfit be perfect with a floppy straw beach hat? Sigh. I need summer hats!
White dress - J.Crew (thrifted) - $3
Pink sash - Aeropostale - came with a pair of denim cut-offs I bought
White sandals - Shoe Department - $7.99
Pink shell earrings - gifted

The dog was being a goof and is shown nipping at my toes (I think she liked my sunscreen or something, because she kept licking my legs and feet)
Ok, on to "Fashion" or at least my version of it. So yesterday I went shopping at Target and came back with a few fun finds, my favorite was this Navy and Hot pink dress on sale for only $10!
I love the funny looking pockets, the bright color with the dark and how it hits me perfectly at the knee. I did get it in a size or so bigger then I normally do (because that is all they had) so I wasn't sure if I should wear the belt or not, I think I could do either way.
This pic isn't the best, but here it is without the belt.
I also got two really cute belts that I hope to show off in up-coming posts and this floral skirt. The skirt is cut to be a bit longer in the back then the front and I got it for only $12! Hurray for me!
This is the outfit I plan on wearing today, but maybe I can wear my new colorful dress tomorrow!

You can't tell but I'm wearing pink ice lipstick by Mary Kay. I like wearing it right now because I feel like it makes my face look more tan:) lol!
So yes, here I am...plain and simple - no style statement - but I wanted to post a picture anyhow. :-)
I'll probably change into my brown flip flops later on, but for now - I'm most comfortable in something with height (crazy, I know).

Fedora hats are becoming popular, but mostly because menswear is making a big comeback this year. I've seen them paired with an outfit as simple as a t-shirt, shorts, and gladiator sandals.
I love fedora hats with a white shirt and vest. The one pictured below is from Target for only $14.99
Perhaps the most feminine summer hat is the straw floppy hat. This hat is perfect for laying out on the beach, gardening, or just as a fashion statement with a sundress. Kohl's has this hat on sale for only $15.40.
My favorite hats in the winter are newsboy caps...in plaid summer colors, this hat is perfect for summer, too!
Newsboy cap found at Target for $9.99.
My favorite finds are pictured below from Make Me Chic's website.
There are some crazy styles out there, but this gladiator heel looked like something I might actually wear - especially for only $21.oo! It came in several different colors, too.
