Spotlight Weekly Link-Up | Week 43: Favorite Sunnies

June 04, 2014

Wearing: Old Navy vest [styled as a top] | Thrifted skirt (similar) | Forever 21 belt (similar)Michael Kors Watch | Antebellum Baubles bracelets c/o | Antebellum Baubles necklace c/o | House of Harlow 1960 sunnies

Hello, lovelies! I decided to wear my favorite HOH sunnies [that I've been styling non-stop for like two years!] because they really are my absolute favorite. They seemed very dramatic when I first tried them on, but I find that the modern retro look goes with so many of my outfits- I usually pick these over my other sunglasses!

I styled this "dress" out of a denim vest from Old Navy, and skirt that I thrifted last summer, and have yet to style. I cinched it at the waist with a colorful belt to create a high/feminine waistline, and loved the result! Husband thought this look was a dress, and that's exactly what I wanted. Wearing a denim vest as a top may have just completely changed the way I dress for summer from now on ;) What a versatile piece!

The lovely Jacqueline and I post our link-ups every Thursday! This week our theme is outfits that feature favorite sunglasses! Come back weekly to visit us! (Click after the break to link-up!)
