I find it funny when I choose outfits to feature on my blog mainly because of where I live. I look at all of these fashion bloggers and see them perfectly coordinating their outfits to what the weather should be like and while I want to wear Hunter Rain Boots in the winter and turtlenecks in the fall, I just can’t get away with it. It’s almost always sunny in Los Angeles. I’m not complaining, but it makes it a little hard to transition my wardrobe from season to season when there really is no point since the weather hardly changes. That’s why you’ll see me year round in dresses like this one from Urban Outfitters. Easy, summertime dresses that you can throw on and go anywhere. I wasn’t always a fan of shift dresses because depending on the body type, they can make you look like a box, but I’m honestly okay with it if I’m just out shopping or running errands because they are so darn comfortable! On Saturday Doug and I had a typical “admin” day of going grocery shopping, cleaning house, and running errands. For those days while I’d love to wear a baggy top and jeans, it’s getting hotter and hotter and having one piece you can just throw on and go out the door is a lot easier in my opinion. The embroidery on this piece adds a special detail that really frames the shift dress. A few other budget friendly options I love that are very similar to this style from Urban Outfitters are this off the shoulder dress, this plaid slip dress, and this floral embroidered romper.
I also wanted to mention my new favorite necklace that I wear almost everyday! This gold bar necklace from Be Monogrammed comes in 14K gold and considering that, the price is pretty affordable in my opinion. I love layering this necklace with simple, delicate pieces like the turquoise feather necklace I’m wearing from Francesca’s Collections.
