I Never Promised You a Rose Garden


All items thrifted, similar here:  Shirt, Skirt, Shoes

Though it seems impossible, this outfit is actually bearable in the summer heat. I was excited when I realized this, because I have become obsessed with wearing buttons up and tying them at the waist. I've also grown fond of the midi skirt recently. I still can't tackle them without heels, but really what's wrong with that? I just think that the heels help to balance out my proportions, since my legs are a little on the shorter side.
I'm also loving that in my last two posts, almost everything in them was thrifted. There's something about knowing that I put together two outfits that I'm really proud of, for a great price. I've always been a firm believer in thrift stores, but these outfit posts kind of validate that for me. You don't have to spend a ton of money to look good.

The Husband Nightmare

Shirt: Thrifted, Skirt: Thrifted, Shoes: Jack Rogers

I titled this post because of an Instagram that Mindy Kaling put up saying, "Chop off your hair! Wear crazy colors and prints! She said. It is I, the husband nightmare!" She is my spirit animal.
Husband nightmare aside, I love the way I feel and look in this outfit. There is something about mixing prints that really makes me feel confident and I think that comes from the fear I used to have of it. It's almost like I've won in a way.
Of course, I've been loving my Jacks for an eternity now, so there's no surprise that they've popped up here on my blog. They really are the perfect sandal! 10/10 would recommend. 
Overall, I'm excited about this look, and I think it shows the way my style has changed over the course of this blog. In a little over two years,  I've conquered a lot of fashion fears of mine, and have started to dress from the inside out if you will. My style is less about what others are telling me to wear, and more about what I feel beautiful in, and I think that's a great place to be.
What outfits make you feel beautiful?
