Picnic-Worthy Outfit

May 11, 2016

Dress: 1.STATE via Nordstrom (very similar). Cardigan: Hinge via Nordstrom. Hat: Nordstrom (very similar). Purse: Coach (today's version). Sunglasses: Target (similar). Shoes: Steve Madden

Had to include this pic with the pup! He tags along for pictures sometimes and I couldn't resist a mini photoshoot.

There are a couple of things I want to note about this outfit. First, that this hat sucks. Lol, probably not what you were expecting, amiright? It's honestly just a cute prop, but as a functional hat it's pretty terrible, and I just thought you should know. The one I linked above is very similar but looks like it's a bit deeper and would actually stay on your head, unlike this one 😂 I may buy the one I linked above because I love having an arsenal of hats for when I don't feel like washing my hair. The reason I kept this one is because I got it for only $11 and it didn't seem worth it to return. 

The second thing I want to note is this cardigan. I know I've talked about my love for it before, but honestly I've already gotten so much wear out of it and it's a unicorn because it doesn't ruin outfits when paired with a dress. Do you know what I'm talking about? I always hate having to put on a cardigan with a dress because it usually looks stupid and ruins the outfit. However, I've now found two cardigans that actually work with dresses. Oh happy day! The other cardigan is this one that I still wear pretty much weekly. I think the trick is finding ones that are longer, but not so long that they overwhelm you. 

The third thing is that I feel like I should be going to a picnic in this outfit, but in actuality I don't think I'd want to wear a dress to a picnic. It's too hard to make sure you're not flashing anyone when you're sitting on the ground!

Hope your week is going well! Mine is going pretty slowly, but we're already half way through, so I'm looking on the bright side.
