Thanks to Americas Best Racing my friends and I were able to attend the Arlington Million and enjoy a beautiful day at the races. As I've mentioned before, my dad used to be in the horse racing business so he was super excited to join us! My family goes to Arlington every year for Father's Day so it was interesting to be there for a different event with friends.

 The Arlington Million is one of the biggest days of the year there and I'm so happy I was invited to spend the day there. They even had a best dressed lady contest which we unfortunately showed up to late and missed it but there were some seriously killer hats on the finalists!

Lucky for me I had the perfect dress for the occasion. I had been saving this Eshakti floral chambray midi dress they sent over to me specifically for this day. If you are not familiar with Eshakti, they basically make a dress that is perfectly fitted for YOUR body! With my height I often have issues with dresses being way too short so the fact that you can choose the length is pretty genius. You can pretty much customize everything about all their items! I suggest you check them out!

On me: Eshakti Dress // Forever 21 bow belt // Ann Taylor bow heels (similar) // J. Crew sun hat (similar for just $19) // DSW bag

On Olivia (in blue): J. Crew hat // Alice & Olivia Dress (similar here at Piperlime) //  Louboutin heels // Kate Spade pave posey neckalce // Vintage Bag

On Beth (in red): Ya Los Angeles Strapless Dress (similar) // Coolibar hat // Kate Spade Bangle

Being a middle-schooler in the 90's, overalls were the ultimate cool-girl item in my closet. I wore mine with a pink satin babydoll top and thought it was just the coolest outfit ever. Flash forward to present day, overalls are making a full-on comeback and what does my full grown adult self do but snap up a new pair! 

This pair was on sale for $29 bucks from American Eagle. Kind of a late night online shopping impulse buy, but I could tell it was a good one because I wanted to wear them immediately when they arrived!

Like many of you out there I was worried overalls might be tricky to style without coming off too much like either a 13 year old girl or a farmer.  I kept the base classic, girly and lacy and added simple accessories like my favorite white panama hat and converse for day look. For a night time look, I added this chunky braided necklace that you can scoop up for just $11! I also added my favorite subtle yet sexy nude Zara heels to wrap up the look.

Now that you know how to wear em, don't you really want a pair too? Shop lots of cute overall options here! And maybe shop some pretty little lace pieces to go underneath them while you're at it!

White Loft Eyelet Romper

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

I heard rumors that white eyelet has an expiration date, the end of August. I don't usually subscribe to those types of fashion rules but I'm at least going to get this outfit up at an acceptable date for all of you out there who do care about these kinds of things.

 I wore this white eyelet LOFT romper to my husbands family reunion. It was pretty hot out during the day but at night this waterfall cardigan kept me warm. I adore this sweater so much I have it in 3 colors. I'm sure they will be keeping me warm in the harsh air conditioning in my classroom all year long.
