How very American of me.

Shirt: Goodwill $3
Dress: Goodwill $4
Shoes: Cynthia Vincent via Ebay
Satchel: Shop Dixi $40
Necklace: Modcloth $28

It's funny that I put today's outfit on without even thinking about the upcoming holiday this weekend. I was craving a look with stripes and denim, and these were the only two items I had in my closet. Do you remember that denim dress I thrifted at Goodwill back in May? Well, this is it underneath those red stripes. I'm really liking the preppy, collared looks right now.

The satchel is my answer to the Alexa Mulberry bag I can only dream about. I love that Shop Dixi offers this bag at a price that fits the average bloggers budget. The necklace is another one of those Modcloth purchases I wrote about the other day. It's way more than I normally spend on jewelry, but I liked that it was such an exquisite piece in the perfect design for summer.

Oh, you beauty! What a cute outfit, and that necklace is ridiculously cute. I love it!! I might have to copy your choice of bag. I've been eyeing the Alexa bag for too long, even though I'd never purchase it. This is a perfect substitution for it!

Great satchel. I really need a satchel in my life. And the bike necklace! Having a necklace like that might inspire me to do a bit more cycling.

Sara Lynn said...

Starr you look amazing and adorable all at once. This look is very simpl, but you look very well put together and ready for Summer.

Oh and I really like your hair wavy like that, do you braid it or is it natural?

Justice Pirate said...

I truly adore your outfit and that necklace is a splendid piece of amazement. How have you been? I hope well. I'd love to hear from you sometime.

Midwest Mayhem said...

I love your necklace.

Ms. Chyme said...

Nice!

Danielle said...

wow this outfit is awesome!! I can't believe the shirt AND the dress are both from the Goodwill. You look so adorable.

Justice Pirate said...

haha. Yeah I didn't have any other type of pool that I could photograph at and I had been wanting to wear it so long that I went for it. haha.

Yeah I have a tumblr for my inspiration blog that I post things and see other people's inspirations like Quincy's and such. Now we are all addicts to the internet!! Not good. I try to only go on here when the boys are busy doing something or if they are napping or eating!!

I'm doing really well. The boys are starting to get along better lately. Hope you sell lots of stuff for your vacation. I'll check out your items again to see if I can help sometime soon. Where do you plan on going?

Danielle said...

You look so patriotic!

I've been eyeing that Dixi satchel bag, it's so much more affordable! Don't think I'll ever be able to afford the Alexa bag... ahhhh maybe, who knows... some day... Yay red stripes and denim, so very classic! Can't wait to see your (intentional) 4th of July outfit, Starr!
