B’s Bachelorette Bash Dress

Guys, B is getting married this week!!!!! And if you couldn’t tell by my use of exclamation points, I am excited!!!

It’s about time that I get up the outfit I wore for her bachelorette party two weeks ago, since she’s soon to be a Mrs. Just a tribal fit and flare dress that I wore for my birthday party last year. I jazzed it up with a very detailed wide belt (see below for more great belts – the last one from Forever21 is my favorite!) and opted for some summer wedges for walking in downtown Indy.

We had mimosas (no way, right?!), went on a winery tour, sat on a patio that featured live music while 8 of us shared bottles of wine and blocks of cheese, boozed it up at several local bars (margaritas), and even convinced another friend (C) that she liked guacamole! A safe Uber ride back (seriously try this service if your city offers it) and a slumber party at B’s home was our endcap to the night! So fun and perfect company!

Ps. Spoiler alert, not to steal B’s thunder, but I’m also posting about my own wedding this week. Stay tuned on Tuesday and Thursday for those of you that have been waiting patiently!

Ridiculously Simple

I wore this lovely little number out last week for date night, which was at Bagger Daves (make your own burger combos for the win), and I’m obsessed with simple, but ridiculous outfits lately. Plus, this little bag is way too cute!

Most of the time, I think my closet could be viewed as classic and almost preppy (I have a stripe addiction, sue me!), but the way I put together outfits wouldn’t lead you to think that always.

Someday (when I’m an uber famous blogger), I’ll give away my secret to what I feel makes an outfit a winning combination, but for now you’ll have to be satisfied with the term “ridiculously simple,” which this outfit definitely fits in.

Sweatshirt Skirt

Is there anything better than a bike on your shirt? #sorrynotsorry if you’re sick of seeing bike apparel on this blog. It’s up there with stripes, polka dots, and Colts blue for me, aka always a winner and always in style.

Even if said shirt is baby pink. Which it is…and I still bought it!

Pure commitment, friends!

Book of Mormon Dress

Well, well, well. Hope you all had lovely long weekends!

Someone finally got around to posting photos from a million years ago (aka nearly 2.5 weeks) from the look that I wore to our viewing of the Book of Mormon here in Indianapolis. The tickets were my birthday gift from The Husband (we’re all about the “experience” presents), and I twisted his arm a little to get a little dressed up for a night on the town.

It was was sweltering hot that night, so a wrap dress ($10 when I scored this sucker from JCPenney back in February) was the perfect idea to keep me semi-cool. The graphic print makes it easy to wear on its own, but I think to remix it, I might need to try the old “tuck into another skirt” trick.

Challenge accepted.
