WIWW: Black, Chambray & Tassel

Happy Wednesday!

I am so thankful for a NEW week... Last week was a bear.
I was having one of those off weeks and just didn't feel like myself

...& to top it off, on Sunday night I erased my phone!!!!
 everything was gone!! I was able to recover most of my pictures through drop box, but not all.
Luckily, this week is off to a good start! 
I found this, and I am using it as my weekly motivation:

Today I am sharing one of my favorite "basic" outfits. (I wanted to insert Summer here, but I probably will be sporting this look come Fall) 

I am a sucker for anything comfortable, and this dress is probably in my top 5 of softest items I own.
It's as soft as the Blardigan, I'm not even kidding!

Here is a picture of the blardigan, if your unsure about what the heck a blardigan is ;)

Drape Front Cardigan (Nordstrom Exclusive)

Now, I know it looks Pajama like, but trust me you want it! If your still unsure about it, check out my favorite blogger's dedication to it! She even named it a must-have! Read her posts here

I just realized I went off on a tangent, but I think it was inspired because the blardigan goes on SALE tomorrow. This bad boy hasn't been on sale ALL YEAR!
Anywho, back to my post ;)

Total Cost Breakdown:

Dress: Old Navy, M, $12
Chambray "Jacket: Mossimo, L, $14.98
Sandals: Yellowbox, Belk, $21
Necklace: BP, $9.98
Earrings: BP Studs, $8

Total= $65.94

I know that sounds like a lot of $ for a College budget, but each of these pieces can be used in several different outfit combinations. (Hey, that sounds like it might be my next series) ;)


My dress can be found at Old Navy
for $12!!!! (Plus Clearance is currently an extra 20% OFF!)

I went with the medium because I didn't want it to be too loose in the top. I also have to add it's the perfect length for us tall girls! It runs on the longer side, so I would recommend sizing down to normal size if you are worried about length.


Chambray top : Target, Mossimo, here
On Mossimo shirts, I size up one size because I have big shoulders & don't like to feel restricted. Also, the Large was longer in the "arms" length.

Similar Style here @ Old Navy


 yellow box
I typically wear these shoes out of comfort & I like a little bling :)

Yellow Box Zabrina Flip-Flop

They go with most of my closet & they have the extra "cushy" I need to be on my feet all day.

  1. Love the outfit! The colorful jewelry is so fun with the black maxi. Oh my goodness the blardigan. It was chilly yesterday morning (which was crazy because it's been record-breaking hot here the past couple weeks) and I got to wear it in the morning before work for a while and I was in heaven. :)


Thanks for reading, I would love for you to share your thoughts :)
