Outfit Post: Dress + Vest

Jul 15, 2014

Yesterday I mentioned that I spent the weekend in Atlanta for the Southern Blog Society conference. Well today I’m sharing what I wore to the main event on Saturday which included a “Coffee Talk” session of speakers followed by a delicious lunch hosted by ASOS.

Getting dressed for one of these events is crazy stressful, it’s like competitive dressing. I was fully prepared for my outfit to get the up-and-down so I wanted to make sure I didn’t have any doubts about what I wore (cause if you do, you’re going to regret your outfit every time someone gives you the once over). Adding to the stress is the fact that half of the stuff in my closet still doesn’t fit – so I had to call in the reserves and borrow a handful of dresses from my friend Megan. I left her house with a bunch of options and this one fit the bill (which means it was both cute and literally, fit).

I’d been on the hunt for a white blazer vest for a while but refused to shell out big bucks for one since I’m unsure of the length of this trend. I found this one on the sale rack at Target ($13!) and immediately, and impulsively, added it to my run for Windex and toothpaste. Happens every time – go for one thing, leave $75 poorer.

It was a crazy hot day so this ended up working out perfectly and I avoided passing out from heat stroke while Grace snapped these pics.

These bracelets were on my wrist all weekend. I found them at 9th & Elm which carries all kinds of handmade and independent designers. You have to act fast because once it’s gone, it’s gone but they have tons of amazing stuff. Can’t find something you love one day, head back and you’re sure to find something you love. I’m digging this scarf and this perfect for poolside hat.

    I am so glad I got to see you at the SBS event! I can’t get over the fact that your vest was TARGET! I thought for sure it was crazy expensive… you had me fooled girl! Looks like I need to scour my target sales rack!

      I know! It was so fun finally getting to hang!
      Yeah it was a Target Sale Rack diamond in the rough! Possibly the best $13 I’ve ever spent at Target (and lord knows I’ve spent WAY too much money there).
