Shirt Dress

So many times I’ve run out and bought something for an occasion or bought a new shirt or dress that I thought was lacking in my closet. Moving forward, I’m trying to purchase things that can be remixed with what I already own. I’m hoping this will decrease the amount of unnecessary purchases and work more with what I got. Insert this shirtdress. I love shirt-dresses for the sheer simplicity of them. You throw it on and are ready in a matter of seconds. This long sleeve one by ATM is more Fall appropriate with it’s heavier cotton material. With this moody weather lately, I wore it as dress one day and as a jacket the other. For future wears, I envision it with a belt around the waist, a blazer or over-the-knee boots.

Flares X Mother Denim

I’m happy that the 70’s style and vibe of the flare jeans are back in style. I remember when I was 13 and I had purchased my first pair. Every inch of them was covered in glitter (Do any of my 90’s readers remember those?).Thankfully I haven’t seen any trace of glitter since then :)  As a petite person, I especially love wearing flares because they elongate your legs with a hidden wedge or heel underneath. I have a darker wash that I absolutely love, last seen here, but opted for a lighter color by Mother Denim as my second pair.

One Dress x Four Different Ways

Quality over quantity. If you invest in staple, basic quality pieces, then I like to believe you’ll have them for years to come. I’m not going to lie, forking out over several hundreds of dollars for one clothing item may make your jaw drop {even for this shopoholic} . When I browse the racks at department stores (or online), I try to take a single item and visualize how I can wear it at least three different ways. If I get stumped, then I know it’s not a ‘must have’ in my closet. I had no questions when it came to this a.l.c. dress from Flaunt. Lucky for my readers, if you stop by Flaunt and mention Purely Peanut you’ll receive 10% off your entire order. Not local? Check out their Instagram and they’ll ship it!

I know I’ll be wearing this dress all season long and mixing and matching with a few different accessories and shoes!

Ode to Summer

You will slowly see a transition into Fall on the blog, but for now I’m savoring all my summertime moments. An easy denim embroidered dress, a wide brim straw hat and the breeze through my hair. Summer, you were good to us.

I swear I just blinked my eyes and the last three months have vanished. I’ve been extremely busy this summer, but a good kind of busy. As much as I’m loving the warm nights, I can’t help but get excited for Fall. It’s one of my favorite seasons. And speaking of Fall, fringe is back and on trend. It’s fun to incorporate the bo-ho look of fringe into my everyday style. If a large fringe purse isn’t your thing, then look to add it in small accents.
