Friendspiration





Dress (Carole Little find at Marshalls); Shirt (Target); Necklace (H&M);
Shoes (Nine West); Earrings (Nordstrom)
Dave Haas Photography

I owe this outfit to a good friend.  She sent me a picture from a magazine she was flipping through of a patterned dress with a tied denim shirt over and said "this looks like something you'd wear".  I love when my friends do my thinking for me :)  Tonya my lovely friend -  this post is for you!  Thanks for giving me friendspiration, I hope everyone else has a friend as fabulous as you!

Cute outfit! Your friends know what they're doin! Not sure I would have thought to put my chambray over a patterned dress like that. I love it!

I'm OBSESSED with those shoes too. J.Crew had similar ones in their Fall catalog that I about died over.

Margaux said...

this post looks a little old-school - i can't tell if it's because of the top, the dress, or all of it! looks great.

I love the second photo Heather! This outfit is definitely you and the shoes look great! I got an email today from 9 west with their bogo event.

I am super glad that I got the Chloe Marcie. Even if I were to purchase the bag in the aftermarket, it would have been more than what I paid at Marshalls!

Kathleen Lisson said...

These shoes are great. I always fear that ankle strap shoes will make me look shorter. These are very delicate.
