Maxi Dresses in Rural SC

Image

In the picture above, I’m visiting my best friend (who just finished her first year at Medical School)! We went out with her Medical school friends to celebrate her classmates birthday. The school is located in rural SC, so we hit up a local bar. We knew we didn’t want to look club-y, but that we still wanted to wear dresses and be girly-sophisticated.

I’m seriously obsessed with MAXI DRESSES!  I would wear one everyday– if I had more than three! Unfortunately, I am still building my collection. I purchased this maxi dress  from Urban Outfitters this past fall! I bought it for $30 or $35.  It was originally $80, and I some how wait and waited until I couldn’t wait any longer….and made the purchase. I have worn it at least 5-6 times since purchasing it. It’s great for all sorts of occasions. It’s casual, yet dressy (especially when I wear chunky heels with it). There is a slit in the front that comes up to my knees for a little leg exposure.  My black bag is from Forever21 & I’m wearing kitten heels from Nine West!

My best friend is  wearing a tribal short dress from Forever21. She purchased the dress in May of 2012 for $25?  It’s an awesome dress, since she has worn it to a plethora of occasions.  Her bag is Tory Burch, and she is wearing  black sandals.

See you soon!

This weekend I attended Virginia Highland’s Summer Fest.  It was a blast!  I wore a white skater dress (Urban Outfitters) w/gold  sandals (Guess) & a Tory Burch messenger bag.

My best friends visited me this memorial day weekend! I took them to them to this beautiful park. We love doing outdoorsy things, and we also LOVE getting dressed up– so this park was perfect for us! It had beautiful mini bridges and plenty of benches of us to sit and relax. The weather was perfect, and the trees were sky tall, blocking the hot Georgia sun.

My Maxi Dress is from Urban Outfitters. I LOVE IT! I have worn it several times since purchasing it. It’s extremely light and still very opaque. The little splash of neon makes it a fun dress for day OR night! I bought it for $25-$30 on sale this past OCTOBER!

LOVE!

Park Picnic!

I absolutely love picnics! They’re my favorite part of the spring and summer season.  I just went on one yesterday– the weather was in the high 70’s, a little windy, great company & not to crowded. I couldn’t have been any happier. We enjoyed drunken goat & manchego cheese, a baguette, curried chicken salad, & tiramisu!

All of the treats were from Alon’s!  The tiramisu was perfect: light, not to sweet, and an awesome mixture of flavors.

I hope all of you get a chance to enjoy the great weather. Also, Happy Memorial Day!

OOTN: Flapper

I recently went to a 1922 Great Gatsby themed Casino Night.  Dressing up was optional, but I absolutely love themed events &  I had all of these items laying around, so yeah —  I, obviously, dressed up! I always like to stay more conservative when dressing up for Graduate school events. I’m at an age in life where your actions and attire speak about you as an individual. Dressing conservatively, can still be cute and this is a perfect example. The only part of my body which is exposed are my arms. I want my classmates and future coworkers to take me seriously when we are in class and/or working together in the future. I think upholding certain characteristics, even when you’re having fun, is key to branding yourself.
