Wardrobe Wednesdays - Beige & brown

The majority of my things have been packed up and carted off for the move, meaning my closet at the apartment is pretty slim pickings. I am alright with that though because it forces me to try new things with pieces I may have only worn once or twice. This cream dress is one that I have only worn on one other occasion - basically because I never know what to wear with it. Thankfully I still had my moms brown boots and took it from from there. My boyfriend was also kind enough to take these photos for me :]

Like my new Betsey Johnson earrings? I won them in an incredible giveaway from Jess Buckley's blog. I am also wearing the MAC lipstick from the giveaway. I will have to show off the rest of the goods tomorrow.

I also tried adding some braids in my hair. I like the look but I only had 4 bobby pins to work with - oh the joys of moving. I wore this look out to dinner with Brian last night to celebrate his last class! He graduates on Saturday.

Outfit Details: Dress - Kimichi Blue, Urban Outfitters | Tights - Target | Boots - Thrifted/moms | Bag - thrifted | Earrings - Betsey Johnson via Jess Buckley | Bracelet - gift from my gramma.

Hope you all are having a great day!

    1. Thank you so much. I had thrown the majority of my closet in bags and just dealt with what I had. Thankfully I had this gem hiding in the back of my closet.

  5. This is a really cute dress. I seriously need to 'shop my wardrobe' more often, I only tend to pick the things that are on my mental radar, if that makes sense! xx

    1. Thank! You definitely should. I am always forgetting what I own because my closet is a hot mess. Sifting through things from time to time can shake things up a bit.

  6. You look super cute, if I was moving I'd probably be trying to get away with wearing pajamas and an old ratty t-shirt haha. I love the dress and those Betsey Johnson earrings are the cutest.

    1. Ha I just looked kimichi up and that is interesting. I had no clue it was a korean dish. I wonder how they came up with the brand name...maybe they were hungry? :] Thank you. The wall was fun to take photos in front of, unfortunately I don't live there any more.

  10. Super cute earrings! I secretly like times when I'm forced to be resourceful with my outfits (moving, traveling, etc.)--it feels like a challenge and makes you appreciate things more! :)

    1. Ha, thank you. The dress didn't come with a slip so it was pretty shear. I bought it in high school actually and hadn't worn it since. Then I bought this slip and it seemed to fill everything out and made it a wee bit easier to pair it with things.

      :] I can't believe I won them! Thank you. I have been pretty lucky lately. Not too sure what it is.

      It is a 2 hour move. Not too bad at all. I just had a ton of junk to tote back.

  27. just adorable. and i would have never guessed this was a 'what i had while i was moving' outfit. i HATE moving. hate it. and the clothing thing is just one in many problems - my home was in boxes for awhile, and since i moved to PA and my husband to FL all of our boxes were labels with either 'jason' or 'katherine' and it was just terrible being 3 months married and splitting all of our possessions!

    anyhow, this dress is really pretty and i LOVE the back of it. such a nice detail. and the boots are adorable. and getting things you haven't worn in awhile or not a lot out is great - my blog has actually helped me do that a lot more. and your coloring really perfect for neutrals!

    1. Thank you! I just lucked out that I had that left in the little chunk I didn't already pack up. Aw, that is so tough! But distance makes the heart grow fonder :]

      Thank you again! I also like blogging for that same reason. It has me trying out outfits I never would have before.
