I’m going to go on a rant about boutique shopping. I LOVE shopping at boutiques because the price point is right and the clothes seem to be more unique than department stores. By shopping at boutiques you also have a better chance at having an outfit not everyone else does because they only make or purchase so many of that piece. So once it sells its gone!
But there comes a challenge with shopping at boutiques when you do something like blogging. I have a hard time linking things I purchase at boutiques because they sell out so fast, and then they never bring it back. GRRR (I wish boutiques did restock more often than not)! So, basically all of this to say whenever I shop at a boutique I will try my best to get a post up ASAP so you can shop the exact look, but if that just doesn’t happen I promise to go on the hunt to find the perfect dupes for ya’ll.
So after my intro on boutique shopping, this dress was purchased at a boutique and of course is gone like usual. But, I found the most perfect dupe for ya’ll from J. Crew Factory. The only difference in the dresses are my sleeve has two ruffles and theirs has one ruffle.
A classic navy shift dress is something everyone needs in their closet. It’s a great substitute for your little black dress when you want something a little different than usual. This dress could be worn for so many different occasions like date night, weddings, baby showers, etc. all with the right accessories of course. I mean seriously think you could wear this dress anywhere to be honest.
The wedges are another topic, I love the edge they add to my classic dress. Gianni Bini has some of my most favorite shoes, and they are always so trendy and fun. Beware, they are tall though (I feel like most of her shoes are this way). Easy to walk in, but they definitely add an extra I’d say 4/5 inches to my height.
On another note, I really hope it starts to warm up in Germany soon. I know that is very far fetched considering the only months it’s ever warm here is July and August, but I need some Vitamin D. And my butt definitely isn’t going outside in the sun to get that until there is some warmth coming along with that sunshine (Hello this is why my legs are so white and pasty 24/7).
Enjoy your hump day! Only a couple more days to go till the weekend!
