Say hello to my new favorite outfit. I've been trying not too buy too much this summer, but I am allowing myself to put all of the money I make from selling clothes toward new ones. I told myself that I just want to stock my closet with more classic, well-made pieces, even if it means saving my money and putting it toward just a few more expensive items. As one would expect, that didn't last long because the moment I saw this dress on the clearance rack at H&M, I knew I had to have it. I bought it a couple of weeks ago actually, but I've been waiting to wear it. You see, after I won that $50 gift card to Modcloth from Illana, I spent hours looking at the website trying to decide what to spend it on. I had a ton of stuff in my cart, but I kept coming back to these boots. I've been wanting the perfect pair of booties to wear with everything for forever, and I finally decided that these were the ones. So when I bought this dress the day after ordering them, I knew I had to wait until the boots came in so I could wear them together. And judging by how happy I am in this outfit, I'd say it was worth the wait.
I also want to introduce you to my new favorite spot for jewelry. I stumbled across Fifth & Mae a little while ago and was immediately in love with not only their great selection of unique every day jewelry, but the ridiculously affordable prices. When I realized that they offered a discount to some bloggers, I'm jumped at the chance. Ampersands and foxes are two of my favorite things, so buying these pieces was a no brainer. I got a couple more pieces that I can't wait to show you, but for now I will say that I'm extremely impressed with Fifth & Mae. Shipping was incredibly fast, the packaging was darling, and the quality is fantastic. Usually cheap jewelry looks and feels that way, but I would have never guessed how little I paid for these pieces just by looking at them. I might just be getting all of my jewelry from there from now on. And no, this isn't a sponsored post. While I was offered a discount, I still paid for the pieces and was not asked to write any of this. I genuinely just really love this store.
In non-clothes-related news, my brother and his girlfriend came into town last night for the week so I'm taking today off from my internship! They live in Arizona and I only get to see them a couple times a year. If you couldn't tell, I'm pumped.
