teal midi and lace

Some days all I want to do is slouch around in the comfiest of clothes (preferably pajamas), and other days I feel like getting my fancy on.

The day I wore this, I overslept and didn't wash my hair, threw on this skirt because it was already hanging on the back of my closet door, remembered this top I've had for aaaaages but never remember to wear, tossed on a bunch of accessories and added and extra swipe of blush and voilĂ  I look all pretty and polished and like I actually put effort into things when it real life it was just serendipitous. So I guess that make this last-minute fancy? Eh, I'll take it. :)

Also serendipitous that I correctly dressed for day six of the Christmas in July style challenge #hautechristmasinjuly "All About that Lace." Though I was a few days late to the insta-party, I've been having so much fun putting together all kinds of seasonal-inspired outfits. There are still a few challenges left for this week's North Pole Neutrals - and all next week's challenges - so it's not too late join the fun!

  1. So pretty! Very elegant with the up-do - can't even tell that it was a no-wash day :)

    1. Oh, my gosh, dry shampoo is seriously the best. Not sure how I survived with out it for so long - especially in sticky, humid Florida. I'm still kinda impressed with my own self - my impromptu outfits never usually turn out so well!

  2. Wow! This teal midi skirt is to die for! So love it with the lace top and the tote :)
