Dressing Up My Hoodie

Lulu*s Comeback Baby Grey Dress - S (buy dark grey here, buy similar)
Forever 21 Red Belt - S (cut short) (buy similar)
Christian Louboutin Patent Pumps - 35 (gifted from Adrian - the bf) (buy, buy similar for <$20)

So if you've noticed, I kinda like to try different things on the weekend.  Today, I went for something a little unexpected and mixed a velour hoodie into a dressier outfit.  I hadn't originally planned on the hoodie, but the softness called out to me and I couldn't resist.  It's also got these puffy sleeves which I'm a sucker for everytime.  I actually really loved this combination and it was perfect for my day of running random errands and getting more wedding planning under my belt.  And of course, I was only too happy to be able to sport my new LV Bellevue PM purse

And since many of you guys requested a tutorial on using the Goody Spin Pins to create a messy bun updo, I recorded a little video this morning for this look today.  I still need to do some editing and will have it up soon so please stay tuned!  :)

Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend!

I love how this is sophisticated, but a bit casual and not overly dressy. Very nice!

Upon first glance, I didn't even realize that was a hoodie (shoulda read the title!). You really dressed it up. Lovely outfit. Also, are your Louboutins as comfy as everyone claims them to be?!

@Angela Thanks! As for the Louboutins, I think they're about average as far as comfort goes. The pair I have doesn't have any platform, which can make walking long distances rather tiring on the balls of my feet. The heel doesn't slip at all though, which is a nice change from normal shoes that I buy. From my perspective, I don't think it's really worth the extra money to pay as my feet seem to be ok in $100 shoes as well. I think it's really just up to you. As a gift though, you can't beat a pair of Louboutins! :)

I love the splash of red in your outfit and with the modest touch of pearl earrings. True talent to match a hoodie + grey color and not make it look casual at all!

Justine said... [Reply]

Awesome outfit. If you want the red back on the buttom of your shoe, I've seen people buy red nail polish and paint the soles of their shoes :)

Just Better Together

Great job on your outfit!

I love your LV bag! That style is such easy long as you are careful with the interior, the exterior is so easy to care for!

Love the combo! The hoodie + the sophisticated look is great! I only have one hoodie that I have fully integrated into my wardrobe because it's hard for me to find a hoodie that isn't too sporty, you know? I just can't rock sporty... I love the way you dressed it up!

Savannah said... [Reply]
