[dress: Forever 21; sandals: DSW; necklace: Dress Barn; earrings: Ruche]
I had loftier ambitions for this outfit until I realized that I'd be wearing it on a super hot day in the middle of a hectic week of state standardized testing at work. Dressier, colorful shoes and jewelry were quickly substituted by neutral accessories and flat sandals. I don't let this dress flex its casual muscle often like I do maxi dresses. This chiffon-esque material usually looks more formal in my mind, I guess. Well, take that, fake-fancy fabric! I will use alliteration and pair you with whatever accessories I want!
