OOTD: Summer evenings

Ben and I met up with a few girlfriends for dinner and trivia tonight. On nights like this, I want something quick and easy I can throw on and still feel cute in. Funnily enough, I find it easier to dress quickly in winter- layering up makes for an instant chic outfit. I'm working on having more simple outfits like this for last minute get-togethers after work.




Top: City Chic
Skirt: Modcloth
Necklace: Lovisa
Wedges: Target

I loved this skirt online, but I'm not sure this shape is for me. I've already been blessed with quite curvaceous hips (no matter how much I weigh) and the bell like shape of the skirt definitely extenuates it. Nonetheless, it was comfy and breezy for our sweltering Summer nights and Ben liked it- he's actually a pretty harsh fashion critic now (I've created a monster!!!)






I wanted this shoes soooooo bad! I held off for the sales and ended up picking them up for $10! Bargain! A funky pair of cork wedge heels is the ultimate fashion chameleon and I'd been hunting for a pair for ages-  Target ended up being my saving grace, with three different styles similar to this. Now I just need to hold out from buying all three!

What do you wear on hot evenings?

  4. I love those shoes, and I'm wishing it was warm enough for sandals in the southern US. My husband also does the fashion critic thing. It's ridiculous how much of an opinion a guy can form so quickly.

  5. I agree that it's easier to put together something that feels stylish and special in colder months. Pop on a scarf or a cardi layered over a top, and it looks well-thought out. In the summer heat, I don't want anything weighing me down, not even a heavy necklace. lol I think the top and skirt you paired was a smart,stylish choice because the periwinkle is a great pop of color and looks great against the black and white. It has more going on than solid printed dress or a simple black and white print. I have a lot of printed skirts and solid colored tees that I mix and match in the summer. Oh, and statement earrings! They don't make me hot like a big necklace, and they can definitely pull an outfit together!
