Outfit Post – Black and Bling

So I’ve got a pretty lengthy blog post about our wedding decor that is going to be posted soon buuuuuut I’m on vacation as of 5:30pm and my computer is at home so that’s just going to have to wait until next week! For now, here’s an outfit post!

I’ve been waiting for MONTHS to wear this sweatshirt so as soon as the weather cooled down tad here in Dallas, I had to take advantage. I bought it secondhand via thredUP, but it’s originally from Forever 21. Since it’s a sweatshirt, I wanted to dress it up quite a bit but still maintain an edgy/street style look.

Sweatshirt: Forever 21 (via thredUP; $4) | Necklace: Bauble Bar ($18 – currently $20) | Skirt: Express (old; this was a gift so I’m not sure how much it was) | Bracelet: H&M ($2) | Shoes: Charlotte Russe ($20) | Lips: NYX Cream Lipstick in Castle ($4, available here)

This knit pencil skirt is seriously one of my favorite things in my closet, you’ve seen it before and you’ll probably see it again. The texture keeps it interesting, it’s forgiving because it’s two layers of fabric, it’s nice and long (in the photos it’s pulled up past my belly button) and it’s comfortable.

Since the sweatshirt is super casual, this was a perfect chance for me to give my new Bauble Bar necklace a spin! I’m absolutely LOVING it and it’s surprisingly light! Every piece I have from Bauble Bar is really high quality and super affordable (especially their Buried Baubles and steals…sign up for their emails so you don’t miss out). Also, they always offer free shipping!
