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

  10. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. 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)!

  17. 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!

  18. 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.
