Full disclosure: these photos are actually from the 4th. I'm a bad little blogger, I know. Anyways, this outfit has been another one of my go-to's this summer. This dress, though originally an impulse buy, has proved itself to be somewhat of a reliable staple. Of course, this will only feed future delusions that this is par for the course with impulse shopping (it is not). Problem.

sunglasses from a random boutique on U St. (love the Super ones, though)
Ann Taylor necklace (similar here)
Rare dress
7 for All Mankind jacket
Michael Kors watch
thrifted, Lou Lou, and Amrita Singh bangles (another bright set here)
Zara sandals
bag from a random boutique
nails in Essie 'play date' and 'bikini so teeny' 
Heavy Seas Dubble Cannon


PS A few days left to enter my WHBM giveaway!

I've posted way late, too. It's hard to have blogging time when life is so fun, right? :)

Mullet dresses are just too fun, this one has such great movement to it. Looove the colorful stripes, it makes the pattern even more fun than the normal black/white stripes. That jacket is really fantastic!

Not to encourage your shopping habits, but I have to admit that some of my very favorite pieces were impulse buys. Including the two high-low skirts I purchased from Zara several months ago. I wear them all the time, just as I know I'd wear this dress all the time! Love the fun colors and the high neckline.

sarahsreallife said...

I fully support impulse buys. It's best if you only have one at a time, and not every day, though. That's been my experience.

Anyway, I love your mullet dress (I know it's called high-low, but I prefer mullet)!

Impulse buys are either great or awful. At least for you in this case, it was great. :) I have a few awful impulse buys...

You look like candy here with all the stripes and bright colors. :D So cute!

I love this dress! I bought myself earlier this summer and have been saving it for a bridal shower, but you've inspired me to wear it more as an everyday piece! I love how you did it with sandals and that jacket here!

I feel the same way about so many dresses. It's so easy to wear them any where. Impulse buys are such a problem but I love so many things.
