Last Friday, I meandered into my local Forever 21 store to peruse their sales racks. The end of the season is always the best time of the year to catch the biggest discounts. This time of year, I am really only interested in finding the must have pieces for fall and winter or crazy good deals on summer clothes, especially items that can transition from summer to fall, just by styling them slightly different.
Forever 21 did not disappoint as their sales rack proudly displayed my favorite sign, the sign that says "ADDITIONAL 50% OFF LOWEST PRICE." The pickens were a little slim, but I found this adorable little dress and a great tunic style tee shirt for next to nothing. The dress cost only $6.99! This dress can be styled dozens of different ways, it is a great basic piece for my wardrobe, and its fun polka dot print really speaks to my personality. I can see it paired with chunky knit tights, boots, and turtle neck sweater or cable knit cardigan in cooler months, but it is great and light weight for late summer's dry 90 degree heat too! Oh--annnnd, the dress has pockets--(bonus!!)
I paired my chambray dress with a simple white tank top layered underneath, for a pop of white and for a little modesty for a day spent playing at the park with my kiddos. I threw on some knee length leggings so I could freely move around without worrying about the wind or my bend. A vintage belt with a sunflower buckle added just the right amount of quirky for my taste, and my trusty royal blue flats finished the outfit off. This outfit is super comfortable and easy, but looks a lot more put together than the standard yoga pants and t-shirt look!
