OOTD: Coral Crush.

Far away picture but shows how bright this dress is!

Dress: Old Navy || Shoes: The Walking Company || Sunglasses: Kohl's || Necklace: {Made by me!} || Bracelets: c/o Jet Chic Arm Candy, {Local Boutique + Gift} || Ring: {Local Boutique} || Purse: Michael Kors || Nails: Ulta Nail Lacquer in Taupe on a Rope || Lips: NYC Color Expert Last Lipstick in Coralista 

     This dress was one of my favorite bargain finds of Summer 2014! I found it marked down to $7.99 at Old Navy during Memorial Day Weekend while I was outlet shopping. I barely own anything from Old Navy because I never seem to luck out with a.) finding good deals there, or b.) finding things that fit me well from there, but this dress surprisingly worked out for both of these! I love this dress for the beautiful bold coral color, how easy it is to dress it up or down, and the fact that the material is so gosh darn comfortable!! I styled the dress for this outfit for a birthday dinner at a Tex-Mex restaurant for a sorority sister of mine. Fun fact about the necklace that I paired it with: I actually made the necklace!! During high school I was really into jewelry making- my high school even offered metalsmithing (which was a fancy name for jewelry making) as an art elective and I took two semesters of it. :-)

     It has been really hard for me to get into the mindset of Fall fashion! Spring and summer fashion are my favorite seasons to dress for- I love floral prints, as well as pastels and summer brights. Over the past two years I have loved the month of September in Charlotte because the summer temperatures tend to stick around for the whole month... but this month Fall made a very early debut in the South! This past week was quite chilly in the Queens City, and on Monday the colder weather is supposed to return. So that means that y'all should be seeing more colder weather inspired outfits on the blog soon- whether I like it or not! ;-)
