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!

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

  8. 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?!

  9. @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! :)

  12. 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!

  13. 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 :)
