dress, vest and sandals

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?


  1. 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.

    1. 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?? 😉

  2. luuuuv the red sandals! and the denim. pockets are great! ~except when the little “biggest” knows that you keep things in them. ha!

  3. 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!

  4. 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 🙂

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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!
