Happy Friday! For many of you your workweek is ending and you’re looking forward to a relaxing weekend. I however, have a huge work event this weekend that I’m so excited for, but know I’ll be absolutely exhausted by the time the weekend has come to an end.
Anyway, let’s talk about fashion! I purchased this Betsey Johnson dress about two years ago, after wearing it in a fashion show. At the time, it was around $200 full—price, which was way out of my budget. I waited until it was more than 50% off before purchasing. I’m so glad I did. I’ve probably worn this dress 20-25 times. I love it.
At that time bell sleeves were a risky, yet confident-in-your-style kind of decision to make. I enjoy taking risks with my style, in hopes of showing other women pieces they can add to their wardrobe. Now bell-sleeves are all the rage! This Spring and Summer was huge for the style. Every fashion blogger was wearing them and they were in every store I walked into. Isn’t it funny how trends from the 60’s and 70’s are such a hit this year? Although my dress is no longer available, I have linked the cream version here and I’ve added similar styles below.
What I’m Wearing:

I can’t believe it’s already Monday again. I’ve had so much fun these past few weekends. Last week, I told you guys that Mother’s Day was my birthday. The day before, my parents came up to Tulsa and took us out to The Rusty Crane for lunch. A place I had wanted to try for a while; the patio is perfect and the food is delicious! My husband, Austin was in a wedding Sunday in OKC, and it just worked out that my BFF Shelby lives in OKC as well. She was studying for pharmacy school finals and graciously gave up some time for me! (She passed btw, cause she’s a genius.) We celebrated by grabbing brunch at Fassler Hall (so good) and did some shopping afterwards (no luck) afterwards we headed off to the wedding!
This Sam Edelman dress was a purchase from last year but…. I found it SO cheap for you guys! This is a great dress I love throwing on for those warm spring and summer days. You can dress it up or down! Throw on a pair of converse and you’re ready for a Saturday brunch with friends, or dress it up with THESE super comfortable heels like I did and you’re looking chic so easily! I love having clothing that accessorizes for me. I’m the type of girl that goes for the printed pattern dress, to avoid having to find the perfect jewelry combo. This dress just makes everything so easy. And best of all, it has POCKETS! I’m a sucker for dresses or skirts with pockets. Lastly, the TOP trending sunglasses this season; oh Dior how I love you so, yet can’t afford you… so I picked up similar dupes to these at Dolce Vita.
See you next Monday loves!
