The Tiny Heart: Denim Vest and Polka Dot Dress

6.30.2014

Denim Vest and Polka Dot Dress



Dress-Forever 21 (similar Love Polka Dot Skater Dress), Vest-Target (similar Charlotte Russe Denim Vest for $20), Bag-H&M (similar Forever 21 White Satchel for $18), Sandals-American Eagle (similar Fergalicious Flat Sandal)

The weekend may be over, but at least it's a short week with the holiday on Friday! All week long I'll be showing you 4th of July outfits if you still need some inspiration. First up is this navy polka dot dress that I styled with a denim vest and a white bag. For Mix It Mondays, I'm remixing my denim vest. It's a piece I wear a lot in the summer for some light layering. I've also worn it in the spring with a black tee and cobalt skinny jeans.


We had another weekend of beautiful weather. I was at the beach both Saturday and Sunday. I started reading Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire which makes a great beach read (thank you Klout for the advanced copy!). Just like the other books in the series, I couldn't put it down. 


Saturday night we headed back to our new bbq joint, Ribs Chckn Done, for dinner by the beach. I ordered the pulled chicken sandwich again. Sadly they were out the yummy baked beans, so I had to settle for a side salad. But because we came back again, they gave us a complimentary crumb cake and poppy cake for dessert. That's my kind of place!

  5. I haven't read anything by Jamie McGuire but being as much of a bookworm as I am, you didn't need to say much to convince me this needs to be added to my endless list! Do you have any advice on which book to start with??

    Ah your weekend sounded just divine and the food looked amazing xxx
