Dress it Down

Every once in a while you come across the perfect dress online and when you get it it fits like a dream. This is my second collaboration with Sheinside and this site seriously impresses me each time.
This dress looks exactly as I had hoped and can you believe it's only $30?! Crazy, right? I always love a good deal, especially when it looks like this. My favorite way to wear a bodycon mini like this is to dress it down with something oversized and casual. This denim jacket has worked perfectly in these situations and I'm loving this striped canvas tote that I found at Urban Outfitters. It's funny because I had actually turned my nose up at the canvas tote when it had started making appearances, but then I bought this one at UO without even thinking twice about it. It was only when I was using it shortly after that I realized what I had bought! I'm not sure if I'm slowly being brainwashed from reading so many blogs or if the canvas tote is actually that awesome -- It does hold a million things and is super light and easy to carry after-all! Well, either way, it has now turned into my go-to and I'm sure that it will be perfect come summer.

We took these photos on Monday after work when we decided to do a Starbucks run and take advantage of the sun that finally decided to show itself after a weekend of non-stop rain. And P.S., did you know that you can actually get discount coupons for Starbucks online? I didn't, but now I do and that makes me a very happy girl. Turns out, there's actually a whole world of these amazing deals and I feel like such a sucker for not taking advantage of it! Lesson learned.

I was wearing:

Holt Renfrew Hat (similar)
Olivia Solie Necklace
