. . . for Lauren and Lauren: It's OK

August 15, 2012

It's OK

dress: c/o sugarlips   boots: lauren conrad/kohls  (similar)

It's OK that one thing that gets me excited about going back to school is getting to wear more of my clothes.  While I love flip flops, sundresses and not having to blow dry my hair, I do enjoy getting dressed in the morning for work. 


And this dress is perfect for school.  Comfortable, lightweight and cute.
I will most likely be wearing it next week for my first week of school. 

It's OK that even though it is still hot I had to try this dress on with my new boots.  I've wanted these boots since last year but never found my size.


It's OK that they surpassed my $15 rule by $35.
I've wanted them for over a year so I justified it and am ready for Fall!


It's OK that I can't decide what dress I should get from a giveaway I won. 



Now I probably wouldn't buy the owl dress with my own money, but I figured if it's free it might be nice to get a fun dress.  However, the striped one is really cute too.  
What do you think?

I absolutely love the striped one but you have a point. Maybe you should buy something you'll never spend your own money on! But then you want something you really love that you'll wear all the time so I'm going to go with the stripes.

Loving your boots! Glad you broke the $15 rule to get them. They are gorgeous. And so is that dress!

You always look so cute! I prefer the stripes. Are you interested in swapping buttons?

Your dress is so pretty and I love the fun fringe boots! And ooo that is hard to choose between those two dresses but I think I like the stripes one a bit better because the yellow color is so cheerful :)

Kassie Rew said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Those boots were worth the extra $!

I'd go with the owls...maybe... different, but cute.
Then again I am sucker for stripes! =)

Stripes can be tricky... Both are cute though. Found you on the blog hop!

Amber said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You look adorable! Love your dress and boots.

I like both dresses. The owls are very fun, but I think the stripes would get worn more.

Thanks for linking up! :)

two birds said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

i own that striped dress in blue and white and i love it. the only thing is that the straps don't sit right in the crook of your shoulders, they are more on the corner of your shoulder, so they sometimes slip off. that is the only bad thing i can say about it. however, that owl dress is so fun and unique! also, yes, you definitely deserve those boots...so glad you splurged!

Jessica said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Those boots are adorable! Makes me so excited for fall :-) And I like the striped dress

J and A said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love your dress and these boots are too cute. I vote stripes, more versatile! Glad you won!! You heard from them I take it!!

Erin Rethemeyer said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

LOVE.

Girl - I need that dress, everyone does in their closet I feel like.

stripes! I will admit the only thing I was excited about for my daughter going off to school was all the fun shopping and of course getting her dressed in the morning :)

Owls or stripes - SUCH a hard decision! Up close I like the owls, but from far away, the stripes look better. Both are super cute though! And LOVE your new fall boots...totally OK that you went overbudget :)

One of the reasons that I can't wait for school is to actually start wearing more clothes, too! I say go with the owl print. The necklace is beautiful and you can wear it tucked in with a skirt for double the outfits!

I absolutely love the striped one but have become aware of your love for clothes with animals on them :) also love Laurence conrads line at kohls!

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I'm a fan of the color-blocked striped one. I saw a little girl with those kind of books on today and she had cute skinny jeans and a great shirt too. 8 year-old knows how to dress!

i love love love the stripes! but i am a striped-addict :) the dress you are wearing is GORGEOUS, too. and i know i have said this, but your hair is so pretty!

Sarah Evans said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

The striped one you will definitely wear, and probably a lot. But the owl one is so very cute. Why are these decisions so very difficult to make?

Those boots are adorable. And it's hard to choose but at first glance I think I'd go with the owl dress.
