Denim Shift Dress


Hello everyone, and happy Wednesday! I hope wherever you are is cooler than here; temperatures are off the charts and all I want to do is spend all day in the pool with a cold smoothie!
 Today was another oppressively hot one, so I thought it was the perfect day to show you guys this sleeveless denim shift dress! You may remember it from my Back To School Haul the other day. It’s my favorite piece lately! It’s so swingy and cool, and just so easy to wear. I paired it with my favorite oxfords, a bronze necklace, and this lovely little coin purse for some fun vintage vibes.

I threw my hair up to get it off my neck, and added a simple winged eyeliner look. Aren’t the mountains just gorgeous here in Vermont? I love the summer scenery!

Back To School Fall Haul


As August wanes, my thoughts turn to buying my overpriced books and saying goodbye to my friends at home for another semester. Both things are equally depressing, so I tried to cheer myself up by going back to school wardrobe shopping! A little retail therapy does wonders for the soul. I picked up a few things that I can’t wait to wear on campus, and I’m sure I’ll be wearing these pieces way too often for my own good!

When I enter a Forever 21, it’s physically impossible for me to leave without buying something. The fast-fashion giant is my holy grail for testing out trends as well as picking up great basics! You have to be careful when buying cheaply however; I always check the seams and fabrics of pieces to make sure I’m getting the best quality possible for that low price. I’ve been disappointed before by things falling apart on me after just a few wears, so I take care in picking things out now. Here’s what I picked up!

1. Ribbed Knit Bodycon Dress in Burgundy

I grabbed this lovely maroon knit sweater dress. It’s light enough to wear now, and easy to layer later with tights and oxfords! It fits like a loose bodycon on me, not skintight but not a shift either.


I also grabbed these round sunnies to replace my trusty Amazon ones…sadly I lost them at a friend’s house the other day (RIP, sunnies…), but I love these new ones just as much! Find them here for just $5.90.


2. and 3. I picked up a couple of crop tops, because you can never have enough, right? This black racerback and front crop is a loose knit, and it’s so versatile! The racer-front adds enough to it to make it interesting. I also grabbed this Breakfast Club cropped tee from Rue 21-I love eighties movies, and it was just $10! Keep your eyes peeled for a look featuring it soon! 🙂


4. I’m in love with  denim. This denim shift dress is the perfect piece to layer for fall, and since it’s sleeveless, it can be worn now too! Forever 21 is offering free shipping on all denim right now too! I tucked a bronze necklace that I found on the sale rack for $3.90 under the collar.



5,6,7. I picked up this creme lipstick in the shade Sangria, as well as these two lipliners. I can’t wait to test them all out!


Are you ready to go back to school? Have you picked up anything exciting for fall yet? Do you love Forever 21 too? Let me know in the comments! I can’t wait to go back to school and wear all of these. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Love Kiki
