Too Cool + Under $50 Outfit

IMG_0210

With the insane humidity thats been happening here in the Midwest, I aim for easy and effortless dressing in the mornings. This little shift dress is exactly that.

This is my version of the famous “Carrie Bradshaw” dress, but modernized and a tad more appropriate. Don’t know what I’m referring to? This should jog your memory.

This is a one-and-done piece (which who doesn’t love that) which is perfect for day or date night, but especially date night. When Zach finally comes back from Iowa after 10 days apart today, you know I’m wearing this little number to dinner.

Plus, did I mention that every single piece in this look is under $50! That means you’ll actually have money left for date night too. That’s a win.

  1. I love the effortless style of this look. I wouldn’t have thought of adding the leather jacket but it looks absolutely perfect especially for those chilly indoor places.

    I’m thinking of getting that jacket, the reviews say it runs small, do you agree?

    • Brenna

      I think it runs TTS, but I have narrow shoulders naturally!

  4. That’s the prettiest shade of smokey purple/grey, love it!
