An Evening Out

An Evening Out



Slowly but surely, I've started choosing more 'adult-like' clothes, what this means at least to me,    means that the new clothes that I'm buying clothes that I can wear now but I can also wear whenever I get a 'big-girl' job.

So when I'm looking at clothes to buy, I'm looking for versatility, quality and cost. I don't know about you, but I follow a lot of different blogs that are like "Oh, these clothes are amazing and they're beautiful and comfortable, etc." but they're also about $234234235. I, personally, can't afford most of the clothes that a lot of the fashion bloggers buy. At least here, I'll be attempting to post affordable clothes (or what I think are affordable).

I don't exactly 'go out' like a lot of college kids do. Don't get me wrong, I've been out a bit and I go out every now and then with friends but I'm not always looking to go out and get drunk all the time. So when I'm looking for 'going out' clothes, I'm looking for something that I could not only go out to a bar in, but I could also go out on a weekend to a restaurant or a park.

Lighter pastel colors have always caught my eye, there's something about the femininity and lightness of the colors attract me. When I saw this dress, I immediately fell in love with it. I'm normally not the biggest fan of gold, but they just used it so perfectly here that I had to incorporate a little bracelet.

Do you like silver or gold more? What colors are you more naturally drawn to?

  1. That is a lovely outfit! I think making the perfect outfit is less about the price and more about creativity :)

    1. Thanks! I'm still looking into getting it, so we shall see. Pastels during the wintertime is one of my favorite things. There's something about how soft the colors contrast against the cold weather that I love. xo, Maria

  4. I could not agree with this post more. The "being a broke college kid" to loving pastel colors to not going out all the time to get drunk. I may actually buy this dress. (:

    Thanks!

    1. You should! It's so simple and beautiful, one of those little understated pieces that you could overlook if you're not really searching for it. xo, Maria

  5. Ooo super cute - and definitely smart thinking about work in the future. I got so lucky being able to wear jeans to my job, otherwise I'd have to buy a ton of stuff.

  6. I tried doing the whole "adult clothes" thing. It didn't quite work out for me, haha. I can't help that I'm drawn to t-shirts with cartoons on them. Although from time to time, I'll surprise myself and get something that's chic, simple and versatile enough for most events (even the more formal ones).

    Love the outfit you picked out here. Beautiful!

    Blue skies!
