summer wardrobe updates

summer wardrobe updates

Oh hey there - it's an outfit post! To be honest, outfit posts don't really seem too inspiring to me these days. You've all seen most of my clothes and you know I prefer to repeat things and wear a lot of black, so there's nothing earth-shattering going on there. Even though this post is old, I just came across it, and I pretty much feel the same way. I've stopped reading most of the fashion blogs I used to read, because it's so apparent that the bloggers are wearing a new outfit every day that they didn't pay for. That not how I live, so why would I want to see an example of that? I want to see people who wear what they already own and who have to plan and budget for pretty new things.

So anyway, here's a boring outfit that I happen to love. Dress I've had for several years, purchased at a consignment store. Necklace also had for years. Shoes are new and are one of my summer wardrobe updates, planned for months. I talked more about these sandals over on my cool friend Jennifer's new website hey ENNUI

I've purchased a few other things for summer, a few tops (one from The Vault, one from The Real Real, so both on consignment), and am anxiously awaiting the arrival of this dress. I'm hoping it's going to be the one I wear all summer. In addition to the one above, of course. 

Speaking of summer, we're again planning to be in Boulder for a good chunk of time. If you need some help with your summer wardrobe planning, you have a few more weeks to book something, or you'll have to hold your horses until mid-August! Go here to see available appointment times, there are only a few left in June!

Over the weekend, we finally had some much needed sunshine. I was inspired to inject some color into my usual black for a night out.

My dress is from Forever 21, my necklace is a gift from my husband via Etsy, and my shoes are Kensie via Century 21 (lots of 21's!).

The shoes have a suprise hit of color from behind.

I had a great weekend - a friend was in town visiting, so lots of good food - Taste on Saturday night and Pasteria Sunday night. It was my first time at Pasteria and it was awesome, everyone's dish was delicious.

Happy Spring!

Here's what I actually wore on my recent night out. Erika, publicist extraodinaire, got my friend Jen and me on the VIP list for the final event of St. Louis Fashion week. Jen gave me the best compliment when she said that my top reminded her of Halle Berry's Oscar dress
which was totally my favorite dress this year!

In other news, I look awkward in photos and I need to buy a better camera -
any suggestions (for the camera, not the awkwardness)?
