dress, vest and sandals

July 10th | what i wore wednesday, what I'm wearing

This summer I can hardly be bothered to blow dry my hair or put on make-up. I pretty much grab the closest clothing and call it an outfit. I wore this dress twice last week. It’s super comfortable and easy–so why not?

I’m linking up Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration!

I found this black dress at a thrift store a couple weeks ago for $3. It’s from Express–probably from the 90’s and I think I may have owned this same dress back then! It’s a lot like this dress and since I love that one so I much I didn’t mind paying a few dollars for another!

For both looks I layered on a vest, an awesome necklace {loooove our new artisan pieces} and a pair of wedge heels.

The pockets on this safari vest are awesome. I think moms need all the pockets they can get!

These sandals are comfortable for all day–as long as I’m not hiking they’re great.

Outfit details: Dress, thrifted. Safari vest, Old Navy. Day to Night necklace, my shop. Wedge sandals, Target.

I found this jean jacket at a thrift store and then I cut the sleeves off. Voila, vest!!

Outfit details: Dress, thrifted. Vest, thrifted. Oh, Dreamer bracelet, my shop. Sandals, Target.

Which way do you like better?

    Both are so cute! I love the denim vest and can’t believe you cut the arms off- great idea! And the brown sandals are my favorite! I love these posts! Love your style!

    I can’t decide – both are cute!!! Too hard to decide because your lovely jewelry ties both together perfectly :)

  5. You look great! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that for the denim vest! I’m going to go hunting for a denim jacket now!

  6. Ooh, that second outfit is very nice! Very well thrifted I might add.

    Cute again! I like the denim vest I think because it’s a little more fitted and accentuates your little waist. Your shoes are always good love the red wedges.

  9. So cute Lisa! And I love that the dress is thrifted. Your necklace is the perfect accessory!

    Love both outfits! I am going to Vienna in a couple weeks to visit our daughter, son in law and grandson. I tried those first pair of wedges on yesterday at Target. I wasn’t sure I could walk all day in them…might have to try them on again, because they are so stinkin’ cute on you!

    I love both looks! You just gave me a great idea too! I’ve been looking for a jean jacket vest to no avail. I have an extra jean jacket I’ll be cutting the sleeves off of! Thanks :)

    Hi Lisa these are both super cute ideas. Did you wear this dress on David’s birthday last week? I remember thinking how comfy and pretty the dress is, so summery! I think the denim look is my fav esp with the pops of red color. And $3? Seriously? LOVE!

    I love the denim with the red! But they’re both lovely, as usual!!!

    I think I just found my twin! Your hair is just like mine. Your clothes are very much like mine also. When I saw you on Pinterest I thought someone had put my picture on there! So weird. I’ve always heard that people have a twin somewhere in the world.

      Ok now I need to see a pic of you!
      PS I already have an identical twin in real life. So maybe we’re triplets?? 😉
