Casual Metallics

Wearing: Poppy Lux dress (buy here!), Forever 21 blazer (similar here), Forever 21 hat (similar here), Monet heels (similar here), Vintage necklace (similar here).

The other day I received this lovely blue metallic dress in the mail courtesy of Poppy Lux, and while it's bright and shiny metallic look automatically makes it look like a party dress, I figured, why not pair it with some accessories to make it a casual look? It's a gorgeous dress, but I honestly very rarely go to parties or dressy events, so I just did my best to incorporate it into my everyday wardrobe, and what I love about that idea is that it's a very flashy dress, which is going to get someone's attention easily, but not in a "try-hard" or "overdone" way. Pretty much the look I try to achieve on a daily basis. It's sort of like hiding how overdressed I am for everyday occasions like going to school, which is everyday! It's really hard these days for me to feel cute in a pair of jeans, unfortunately. But anyways, this dress is so fun and that color is gorgeous, and it's also on sale! So if you wanna grab one up, I definitely recommend you go now before it's gone! Hope you all have a great week!

  3. Lovely colors! How do you get your photos from your blog to your instagram?

  4. I absolutely love your style and am so glad I stumbled upon your blog. You are so gorgeous!


  5. Every time I read your blog I can't help but think you stepped out of SITC or The Carrie Diaries! x

    1. Oh my definitely win comment of the year with this one! Both SATC and The Carrie Diaries are my favorite shows (I pretty much live and breathe SATC lol) and I love the style on those shows more than anything so wow I'm just so flattered thank you! :) xx

  6. Have you checked out They have links to all the clothes worn on TV shows... including The Carrie Diaries :)

    Also, I love how you said you try to hide how overdressed you are for school or just a casual outing. I love wearing dresses with cute tights and a cardigan or blazer, but I always feel way too overdressed just to go to school or work.

  7. Beautiful dress and heels, it suits you well <3
