Block Party

Standard

Woooow.

So apparently the last time I posted was June 27, 2014.

Geez, there’s really no excuse for that kind of gap. I just got lazy, guys, that’s the sad truth. But I’ve got a few posts saved up, and I’m going to post those, and then I’ll TRY to get back to my poor, long neglected blog!

Today’s outfit comes from waaay back in June, when the sister of my very first best friend got married. Ironically, it was at the same place as the outfit from my last post, which was from another of my friend’s weddings! So many weddings in 2014, guys.

Here is my designer comparison outfit:

Colorblock dress: Ross, $12
Turquoise peep toe wedges: Cato, $3.99
Bronze heart necklace: Body Central, $1
Pearl clips: Claire’s, birthday present
Outfit total: $17

I loved the fun, bright colors of this outfit and it was cool and comfortable for an outdoor summer wedding. The pop of the turquoise and the navy against the white really helped the color block of this dress to stand out. I tried to keep my jewelry simple so the dress would be the focal point, and I think a heart necklace is always perfect for a wedding 🙂

It’s always exciting to find a maxi dress that’s the correct length for my short self. This one was just a touch to long, but with my little wedges it ended up perfect–thankfully they matched perfectly!

Again, I know it’s been a ridiculous amount of time since I’ve been posting on this blog, but I promise I’ll try to get back into the swing of things!

Thank you for sticking me with, you guys are the best!

Pax,
Sara

PS

As always, I like to include it when I get a funny behind the scenes picture, and those usually include me getting photobombed by a cat. My boy Gustav was for some reason VERY interested when we were taking these outfit pictures, so I’ll include a couple with him 🙂
