Happy Dance

Blazer: H&M Dress: Guess via Marshall's (similar, love this) Heels: Jessica Simpson via DSW (old, drooling over these) Sunglasses: Target (in pink) Clutch: Danielle Nicole via DSW Necklace: The Limited Watch: Michael Kors Bracelets: Express (identical), Banana Republic Factory Store (similar), Uzbekistan (cute ones on Etsy!)

Apparently I have a thing for blazers and florals lately (as evidenced here and here). Something about taking such a summer-y print and making it work appropriate was a fun challenge for me. I didn't want to do a drab brown-on-brown so I opted for a tan blazer that's defined by black piping along the lapel. No fears of mixing black and brown here! (Although my sister would probably cringe at the sight of this!) I love the unique combination of this dress - floral print, lace cap sleeves, and pockets! If every one of my skirts and dresses could have pockets I would die a happy girl.

I wore the peep-toe pumps from this outfit to work and swapped in my Jessica Simpson Gladiator heels for an awards ceremony afterwards. My best friend is graduating from college this week and was honored as a Psychology Student of the Year! (Congrats Tina!) She's definitely a hard worker and so deserving of the award (oh and she was named Philosophy Student of the Year too, no big deal) and she's an awesome photographer as you can see from the photos above. Can't wait to see her graduate and hopefully recreate this photo from high school!

Oh, and have you ever wondered what my happy dance looks like when I find an amazing pair of shoes? Well, wonder no more:

82 boxes of shoes on the wall...
