Can I get a what what for all the other 90’s babies out there? This print of this dress screamed 1994 to me for some reason and I can very much dig that. In fact, that’s the main reason I liked it. How crazy is it that 90’s fashion is coming back? My girl Katy Perry can be seen rocking the living daylights out of it like no one else. She basically hits everything out of the park when she does it, but what’s new? I bow down to K not Bey. #sorrynotsorry.

I decided to add an oxblood lightweight cardigan and burgundy felt fedora to contrast the dark navy dress and play up the maroon in the floral print. Plus it’s ONLY 90 degrees in Arizona so that means it’s time for layers guys! (insert heavy sarcasm here) As we were snapping pics my two layers became blankets of death so technically it’s still not acceptable but I gave it the old try so hat’s off to me right? (pun totally intended)

This faux leather tote is totally amazing and best of all completely affordable! It’s reversible and has a wristlet attached inside. I will probably use it on the gold side more, but it’s nice to know I have the option of using the cognac color as well!

Silver is having a bit of a comeback since it too was a thing of the 90’s. But to be completely honest, I’m not totally happy about it because I have SO MUCH GOLD jewelry I’m not ready to part with! Or maybe that’s the OCD in me talking. She’s cringing and shaking her head in disapproval because it doesn’t match PERFECTLY. So right now I’m jumping on the mixing metals bandwagon to smooth my transition from gold back… to… silver? Ugh. I’m just not ready to give up the gold 100% yet, okay? I mean, I’ve mixed metals before but it was child’s play because I was only mixing gold and rose gold. But I’m listening to the free spirit in me instead and she’s all about the big doin’s. I think it worked out pretty well. What do you think?
