Purple Gingham and Denim

Whenever I'm feeling uncreative or just want to feel good about myself, this dress is my go-to. I feel like I write a love letter to it every time I wear it on here, but it never stops being perfect. It's one of my all-time favorite pieces to put on, and I don't feel even a little bad about how much I gush about it. I wore this outfit on Sunday to visit my parents, meet that adorable puppy I mentioned, and grab a drink with friends later. Typical weekend shenanigans. 

Things are pretty busy right now, but exciting. My job is going well, I just finished writing stories for my freelance gig at a local paper, and a work friend and I decided to start looking for an apartment together. I think I've finally had enough time to figure out my budget, so I can't wait to start looking for places and be on my own finally. That's right, adulthood. I'm actually coming for you for real this time.

Is it the weekend yet? Don't answer that.

  1. Nothing looks better with the gingham print than a denim jacket.



  2. I feel like we're doing similar things in our lives right now! I just started my full time job a few weeks ago and now I'm looking for a place closer to work. Things are exciting! Well, more exciting than before! I'm glad your new job is going well.

    Also this dress is adorable. I can see why it makes you happy whenever you wear it. It's super cute. I love those little flats you wore with it too.

  3. You don't see purple gingham too often, although I have no idea why! That dress is ADORABLE! I'm jealous of all the beautiful SoCal palm trees behind you. I miss it so much more than I realized. I'm glad to hear you're doing so well!

  4. Love it! It'll be the weekend soon enough. :)

  5. I can see why that dress is your go to! It's adorable! I am loving pastel gingham right now...I have some creamy orange gingham fabric that's just begging to be made into a sundress...I should probably get to work on that. :)
