Look of the Day: Oldies but Goodies

Sunday are grocery shopping and errand running days in our house. But that doesn't mean I want to look like I'm running errands or hit Trader Joe's in my sweats. That's when oldies but goodies come into play. You know those older pieces that you love but you 'd rather reach for a newer piece. This Forever 21 dress is about 4 years old but it still receives compliments every time I bust it out. It's the perfect Sunday dress I must say.

And what's better then polka dots and leopard?

Sometimes I just love chunky boots with dresses.

This Rodarte for Target bow belt is meant to be worn with the bow in front but I really love wearing it with the bow in back.

And to make our Sunday even sweeter my Mother in Law Sheila dropped off some 'puppy chow' treats (Crispex cereal treats).
They are an oldie but a goodie treat for sure.

I hope you day is going well this Monday!

  12. Eee, leopard print! I love a good leopard print belt, and I agree with Jessica- your look is perfectly girly & whimsical without looking too young- which is hard to pull off sometimes for us quickly careening towards our 30's. *cries*

    Bravo!
