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!

    1. Oh my goodness...you 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 wornontv.net? 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.
