The mild fall weather is continuing in the Midwest! I’m trying to enjoy it and soak it up as much as I can because I know soon enough the long, cold winter will start. With the mild weather, I’ve been wearing dresses to work a lot. The thing I like about dresses is that you look really put together, yet picking out a dress is way easier than a whole outfit. This purple dress is another new one I got this summer for fall. It’s so comfortable, which makes me wish I would’ve gotten it in more colors. I think this purple color is perfect for fall and the black booties gave it even more of a fall look. I just got this layered necklace last weekend and love it! I thought it was the perfect necklace to go with this dress!

I’m really excited about this week’s What We Wore Wednesday outfit. I originally was going to wear this outfit while on vacation in St. Lucia, but of course I over packed and ended up not wearing it. Since I didn’t get a chance to wear this last week I thought it would be a great look for work! I love this floral printed skirt. I just think it’s fun and I really like the length of it. Also I just can’t get enough of these Target booties. They are SO comfy and cute!!

Yesterday I didn’t do a whole lot. I just spent the day doing things around my house. Because of this I just wanted to go with a casual outfit that was comfortable. I got this Lilly top this summer and it’s so soft and comfortable that I thought it would be perfect for a laid back day. I like it even better on and now want it in more patterns! I paired the Lilly top with some white denim shorts from The Buckle. I’ve had these shorts for quite a few years, but they fit me really well and are comfortable. It will come as no surprise that I finished off the look with my white sandals from Target. They just got with so much!
We hope you’re enjoying your week!

Saturday I went to my boyfriend’s fraternity formal. He is in the fraternity Alpha Gamma Rho and this year was the third formal of his that I have been to. It was definitely bitter sweet with this being his last formal since he is graduating this year. With this being the last hurrah, I decided to go all out with my dress and hair.
My dress is Sherri Hill and my favorite part about it was the all open back. I got my hair done at my usual salon called Studio 7.
Before heading to formal we stopped at one of Michael’s fraternity brother’s house, that was on the way to the hotel and did some trap shooting. It was an interesting way to start off the day to say the least, but it was very entertaining. After that we headed to the hotel where the event was held and we all checked into our rooms. We all got situated in our rooms and did some exploring to figure out who was all there and to get a feel for where everything/everyone was in the hotel. As it started to approach the time for dinner, we all started to get ready and into our dresses. Before we all headed to the meal we of course has to take some pictures!
After we were all done eating we did some dancing, went swimming, hung out, and of course had to go on a late night run to Perkins. I would definitely say my last AGR formal was a huge success! I’m going to miss all the graduating guys and all the great times we have had together throughout my time in college so far! A huge shout out to my boyfriend Michael for being a great formal date throughout the past few years!
