Flea Style Finds Vol. 2

 

I love blazer weather, and I'm just not ready to let it go! It's the perfect accessory to a plain outfit such as this one! Texas weather has been all over the place per usual, and I probably look silly wearing a blazer when it's 80% humidity, but I don't care! Thankfully they blast the AC everywhere you go here. My justification is that it's cold inside, so I still need the layers! 

I went to the Flea Style Event back in April, and found so many goodies! If you don't know what Flea Style is, and you live in Dallas you're missing out! It's a big event that takes place twice a year that allows the best local vendors to sell their products all under one roof. It's like being a kid in a candy store for me! You get to meet tons of awesome people who are so passionate about their products and crafts and that is so inspirational to me! I love supporting local businesses, because it's important to recognize all the hard work everyone goes through on a daily basis! 

Iโ€™m actually wearing a lot of my Flea Style finds here. Except for my fancy Texas Forever T-shirt. But I love Texas, Friday Night Lights, and Tim Riggins. Who doesn't love Tim Riggins?! Ok, so first off, this velvet blazer immediately caught my eye at the Flea Style booth! It's vintage and in such great condition. The gold button details were my favorite part about it. And I love navy. Navy is perfect for any season so I knew that this would be a versatile piece. It fits perfectly and the shoulder pads give it some extra life. 

Next off the accessories, mainly, the mules and necklace are by Ascot + Hart! I absolutely love their vibe and they are the nicest! The mules are so different and I hadn't seen anything like it. Of course, now I see variations everywhere, but I still love them so much. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that they've been on repeat in my closet for a while. I love all that is dainty which is why I'm a fan of this necklace. I can't find replicas anywhere, and the little tassel detail is the best. I would buy everything in their shop if I could! 

I linked a lot of exact items and a few similar below! Shop away, and donโ€™t forget to check out Flea Style and Ascot + Hart!

 

Love for the Midi

 

A few years ago I would have never dared to wear a midi dress. Never ever ever! I always had this misconception that they made me look shorter than I already am. I'm 5'1 for reference. I'd always be pretty envious of all my taller friends that could pull it off. I'm not really sure where the shift changed, but one day I decided I didn't care, and that it was probably all in my head (like the majority of our insecurities). Let me tell you that I love midi dresses, skirts and those baggy pant things! I think the official term is culottes? Anyways, midi dresses are super comfortable during a long day out and about. You never have to worry about your dress flying up in the wind, and you don't have to shave your whole leg! Sorry for the TMI, but it's true. 

We all know I'm a fan of the relaxed fit anything and everything so this dress goes in the "love" pile! I love how bright it is with the extra large checkered pattern. It's different than what I've seen lately. I also have been excited for cute dresses with sleeves lately! Please don't ask me why, because there's no real reason besides the fact that sometimes it's nice to have non-sleeveless options!

When this dress first came in the mail, I was all about wearing sneakers with it, but in the exact same package came these pretty pink babies! If any of y'all follow me on Instagram, you'll see that I recently retired my favorite gold slides from last summer ::sad face::. I've been on quite a kick with blush lately and decided to replace the gold, with these blush slides from ASOS! I'm not sure how versatile they'll be with my wardrobe, but I'm definitely going to see how far they take me. Goal of the summer? Not to buy another pair of sandals. Yeah right. BUT I'm proud of myself for even having the thought!
