Grab and Go

May 31, 2011

{Royal Blue Dress ~ Forever 21 + {last seen here with neutrals} / Pink Peony Cardigan ~ Victoria's Secret / Royal Blue Suede Gladiator Booties ~ ASOS {last year} / Beaded Necklace ~ Thrifted / Cyrstal Watch ~ Kathy Van Zeeland / Handbag ~ LV Damier Azur Noe {can't stop carrying this bag, I feel like it works with everything!}}

As you will soon see, my summer work uniform will mainly consist of a dress or skirt of some sort,  an open cardigan {that can easily be yanked off when I walk outside of my air conditioned office, into 95 degree temperatures} and cute sandals or flats.  An outfit like this is so easy to grab and put together, giving me a few extra minutes to rest my eyes in the morning, lol.  Grab and GO outfits are the best!

I knew I wanted to go bright with this dress this time, since I wore it last month with neutrals.  I almost wore a bright yellow cardi, but grabbed this yummy watermelon pink one at the last minute.  I also almost wore a belt but decided against it - I sometimes feel like I am over styling outfits more often than not.  I'm working harder to keep it simple. Every outfit does NOT need a necklace.  And bangles.  And a belt.  And dangly earrings. I am {naturally} an over-the-top person, so this is quite the challenge for me.  But I can do it. ;)

And these sandals?  SO amazing, one of my favorite pair.  I was so excited when I pulled these out of the "summer sandals bin" that has been tucked away in the garage since last summer.  I now have to uncover the bin of summer clothes.  I have a pair of white trousers somewhere that will need to make their debut soon.

xoxo, thanks for reading!
