Sunny Monday :)

Hey everyone! Hope you had a relaxing weekend! I tried to relax, since I've been going non-stop over the past couple of weeks.

Mondays are always tough. It's hard getting back into the swing of things, so here's an outfit post that may help brighten your morning. Since it's sunny out today, I thought I'd celebrate with a bright yellow dress. (Also, it's starting to get colder out ...all of the sudden... so I wanted to get in this sundress while I could.)

My inspiration photo is below. She added a green military-style blouse over the dress. Such an easy way to transition into fall, and still keep bright hues in your wardrobe!

For my look, I used the same color palette to create a similar dress + jacket outfit. I also incorporated my new Warby Parker Huxley glasses to match the photo! I'm obsessed with these specs! Here's my modified version of this look:

Make it your own:
Dress: Banana Republic Raw Ribbons Halter Dress (Orig. $130; I got for $40!)
Jacket: Loft (Similar)
Shoes: Steve Madden (Similar) $69.95
Glasses: Warby Parker, Huxley in Whiskey Tortoise $95


  1. What's the origin of the necklace, Jess? I love the length.

  2. One of your best matchups yet. Killed the look and the jacket is awesome

  3. Kelly- The necklace was just my own personal touch to the outfit! I love it's length as well. It's actually a locket with a rose on it (but I have no photos in it). I got it from J.Crew a few years ago [no surprise there!]

    Kevin ($- nice money sign)- Thanks for the comment! I think this was a good look also. The jacket was such a great find :)

  4. Can i borrow your jacket?? Just send it to little nyc you know the
