Baby Blues

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Dress & Blazer-Forever 21, Shoes- c/o Modcloth, Socks- J. Crew, Handbag-Rebecca Minkoff, Sunglasses-Juicy Couture, Watch-Michael Kors, Bangle-Vintage Monet  
Blue has always been one of my favorite colors combine that with nautical stripes and a bow and I am one happy camper. I found this dress for a steal at Forever 21 and usually I would wear it with some cute high heeled sandals or flats, but Modcloth sent me these darling oxford patent pumps. I felt like channeling Alexa Chung with her pumps and socks. My boyfriend never understands this look, but I like it.
Don't be afraid to try socks with your sandals and wedges this summer. They add a fun and funky attitude to your outfit. I love the ones at American Apparel & J. Crew. Just don't rock them with thong flip flops, not cute.

I am growing my bangs out this summer and trying some new looks. I am having a hair and wine night at my girlfriend's soon where we drink and then play with each others' hair.  Call us weird, but we just really like a glass of wine and feeling like we are 10 again.

I love the stripes!!! Awesome outfit!

Kristy said...

great preppy look :) can't believe that dress is from F21. I really have to rummage through the tacky stuff at F21 to find great items, like that dress :D

I'm loving your hair in this post. How did you style it? The beachy waves look flawless and I love the twisted bangs! :)

I love the dress with the blazer! Very cute look. I don't think there is anything wrong with wine and acting like you are ten again. Sometimes life gets a little crazy and it is nice to just slow down and enjoy the little things :)

I recently (as of Saturday) just sucked it up and bought an expensive, well-tailored blue blazer and am so glad I did. A blue blazer is one of wardrobe staples that you can mix and match with everything. I love the oxford heels with socks, too!

I'll have to try that real soon!
Thanks for popping up back the idea on my mind!

katrina said...

i love the nautical feel to your outfit! totally cute and summery. :)

also, i lovelovelove your aviators! i'm trying to find a pair right nw but it's proving to be a daunting task since sunglasses always either look too big or too small on my face. :(

I love this outfit, and I think it's funny your boyfriend "doesn't get it" I think that may be a man thing. My boyfriend and I got into an actual arguement because he thinks all high waisted skirts are the ugliest piece of clothing on absolutly every woman. Sigh, sometimes they just dont get it....

Gracey Loo, Money Smart Fashion said...

I love this and couldn't agree more, boys will never understand.

If I attempted socks and sandals my boyfriend would spend the balance of the day laughing at me.

silly boys.

eleanor said...

you look so sweet!
ahh, guys just don't get some trends.
and that sounds like so much fun! have a wonderful time!

jen said...

Great look! I love the colour of the Rebecca Minkoff-- it seems to go with everything you own! Also, you always seem to manage to pull off F21 blazers so well (I remember you with the nude one!)

In regards to socks with shoes, can't please the boyfriend with style choices all the time, haha. I've learned that much already. Sometimes you just have to dress for yourself!

Lainey said...

Such an adorable look! I love stripes right now too. So obsessed with them. And this look is girly without looking over the top. I don't know how I'd look with socks and oxfords but it's definitely something I wanna try.

I love it! I'm a sucker for a blue and white stripe.

Lizzy Webb said...

i'm officially an avid sterling style blog follower. i love you! and your blog!

this is an ADORABLE outfit. the blue striped dress, blue coat, black paten pumps, with the socks... great- i've always been too scared to wear socks with my heels... it's almost too much for me to wear it here in texas.. and trust me i go waayyyy out of the boundaries of "normal" with fashion. haha.
i also like the touch of camel in your purse. great color accent.
overall great outfit... as usual :)
