If the weather were 80° year round, I would just wear this outfit every single day. Bare legs, easy floral, and a little denim for style. I can go get ice cream, watch music in the park, binge on Netflix, do a little thrifting, etc.

I love how this outfit has a little bit of a '90s feel to it. As much as I'm drawn to '60s styles, I will always feel the most myself in outfits reminiscent of my early years. Anything before the '60s often feels too sweet on me, and clothing from and inspired-by the '70s and '80s just look like costumes. 1990, baby!

I know this challenge is supposed to be about not shopping and remixing what I've got, but if I were going to buy new floral dresses, I'd pick up one of each: one, two, three, four.

  1. Yes, I totally see you as a total 90s gal! This look is so you, 90s or not! Surprised you went with sandals instead of chucks though :)

  3. Visiting from the link up! Love your glasses...and your hair! I've been on the search for some glasses in just that color, so fun! I love 60s styles too, but I also love that the 90s are making a come back.

  5. Love it! Your hair is looking so great lately. That's funny about what you said about feeling at home in clothes from your early years- I'm the opposite! I don't know that I have a single thing in my wardrobe that's very 90s style!

  9. Denim and floral is such a great combo! I've never owned a denim vest but I bet I'd style it in a similar way. A bit of tough and girly. Those sandals are so cute!

  10. 90's music? The best. 90's fashion? The worst. LUCKILY, you are totally doing 90's fashion justice and you look adorbz.

  12. I somehow have a dearth of floral dresses in my closet right now. I used to have a bunch and then I guess they're all gone now. Top of my shopping list for sure! I was totally thinking this had a 90's feel too. I asked my students today if they were too young to remember shark tooth necklaces (we were reading a related poem by Kay Ryan) and felt old. 90's for life.

  13. Oh my gosh, this is darling! I am starting to really see the value of a denim vest - they look so great over a dress, and I like the idea of wearing them with a sweater or tee and black jeans or something too :)
