|Top and Pants: Vintage Saks Fifth Avenue "Totally Mr. Mort by Stan Herman", Necklace: Forever 21, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: Gifted, Earrings: H&M, Bag: B Makowsky, Shoes: Christian Louboutin|
As you may already know, I love all things vintage. Whether it be a vintage bag or belt, or a full on ensemble like today's look. Adding vintage pieces to an outfit gives it character. I am positively smitten with this yellow Stan Herman pant suit, and I find that the color is perfect for spring and summer. Also, I love the fact that I can separate these pieces and wear them with other things, like I did in this post.
What do you think? Do you have any go to vintage pieces in your wardrobe?

All day I have been day dreaming about the upcoming Memorial Day weekend! I decided to slip into this lovely fuchsia dress that I recently picked up at forever 21. What I love about this dress other than the great color is the vertical line going up the middle of it. Vertical lines draw the eye up and down and give the impression of height (I told you that I need all the height I could get). This dress also came with its own navy blue sash, tie type of belt, and I swapped it out for this swanky vintage one. The easiest way to take a bargain buy from cheap to chic is by adding fabulous accessories! Also, because of the sheerness of this dress I also added a slip; nobody likes a wardrobe malfunction and proper undergarments are as important as the outfit itself.
On a different note, I'm so excited to be getting away for a couple of days for the holiday weekend. I'll be heading to San Diego for a little fun in the sun. Feel free to follow my adventures on Twitter and Instagram. What are your long weekend plans?
Have a wonderful Friday!

I wore this beautiful silk dress today in an effort to beat the heat. The material is thin and lightweight so it kept me nice and cool while I bopped around and did a little shopping. I was on the hunt for some "basics". I needed a new pair of nude pumps and some black mary jane's, (if you follow me on Twitter you got to see a little peek at what I bought) although shopping for practical wardrobe staples isn't quite as fun, it must be done.
