Last Wednesday, one of my dearest friends was graduating from school. Our friend group all took inspiration and dress up a little for this amazing milestone. My outfit was typical for my style, and super AFFORDABLE! I wore a black body suit from forever 21 (similar), a floral skirt from Ross, and my Aldo Yalissa loafers (yes the shoes are expensive, pretend they aren’t here). I opted for flats over heels, because the graduation took place where there were a lot of stairs to climb. The 3/4 length sleeve of my top turned out to be helpful because it was a rainy and cool evening in Florida.
Spring seems to have skipped straight over Florida but I’m still dressing like it! Using a denim jacket in Spring is ideal because it’s lighter than most sweaters and versatile to use with different looks. I wore this outfit to work and it was a hit at the office! I also switched up my florals and wore the pattern with a dark base. The small bouquets break up the dark and it made for a beautiful contrast. I kept the shoes basic because it’s what I prefer for work, but this can definitely look amazing with red shoes or a pair of lace up sandals with the colorful pom poms.

So I did some shopping over the past month and a half… The good news is that I’ll have a ton of inspiration for new posts and videos for the next few weeks. The bad news is that now I have to find a new reason to justify my purchases lol. I filmed a video hauling my nw stash I will leave links to everything I showed in the description box of the video as well as here, happy watching!
Florida is warming up! That means that the thermostats are about to be dropped and I have to still dress like it’s fall for the indoors. I wanted to stay on the cozy side for work to shake the Monday blues a little.
