I managed to snap a few photos in my new favorite outfit at my new favorite photo location before it started to rain. I swear, it has rained more in Austin this summer than I've seen in my whole life. The lakes and creeks are full of water though!

I bought this dress right at the end of my 30x30 because I was mad that I'd grown out of all my clothes and I wanted something comfy to wear. I've pretty much worn it every week since the challenge ended, but it somehow hasn't made it to the blog. In addition to the rain, Austin finally hit 3-digit-temperatures this week, so I opted for a vest instead of my usual cardigan. My denim vest is oft forgotten, but I'm trying to implement it into more outfits. I'm always a fan of floral and denim, and I've worn it with stripes (though not yet on the blog). How would you style it?

  1. That dress is so pretty! I can't get over how pretty the back is. I also love that vest on you and am a little jealous that you pull it off so well- I look BAD in vests. Sigh.

    Stay cool out there, lady!

  3. blogger puns, and specifically vest puns, are essential (I usually go with "inVESTment") and though I also have a denim vest, I get stumped with styling it too. so I don't have any words of wisdom!! this dress is cute and looks like it fits you perfectly, so I'm surprised we haven't seen it yet! hope you are having a grand week, Nicole!

  4. Three digit temps are terrible. Icky. The cut out details on the back of this dress are great. I love it.

  6. Would you believe that I don't even own any vests? I always think I don't like them and then every so often, I see someone wearing one well (like you today!) and think maybe it's a good idea. I wear my denim jacket all the time, but yeah, it's getting too hot for that!

  7. This is an adorable look, and i quite like the way the vest toughens it up.

  8. This dress looks really cool for the summer. I've grown out a bunch of my clothes so I feel the frustrations of not having anything to wear, especially now in the heat!
