Cute Outfit of the Day: Colorless









lace dress: Goodwill $4.99
jacket: H&M via Plato's Closet $11
belt: $1.99
scarf: Goodwill $1.99
bracelet: F21 $4.80
shoes: Goodwill $3.99
Total Cost: $28.76

I wore this outfit last night out to happy hour at Marcella's with some girlfriends. It was warm enough out to just wear this without a coat which is amazing for Ohio this time of the year! I love it! Since it's been so warm I've been able to wear some of my summer dresses like this one- with tights and a jacket of course! I made this white lace dress winter appropriate by adding dark, tougher pieces with it.

At dinner, my friend Kyla and I were discussing our need to add color to every outfit we wear. Do you do this too? There is nothing wrong with this- a pop of color can really amp up most outfits! But I thought, what if I didn't add color to an outfit? That can be stylish too, right?  So in this outfit, I tried to resist my urge to add a colorful scarf or shoes to this outfit and I kinda like it! I think I'm still going to be a color girl but it's fun to try something new!

  2. I usually love color, but i totally love this outfit. It's perfect as is... When leaving the house, i tend to add a crazy necklace on, a scarf, or something to spice it up. I need to not always do that!

    PS- i can not believe you bought that dress for $4.99. What an amazing find.
