TOBI Boho Babe Embroidery Shift Dress

Y'all know I don't really chase trends, but I'm LOVING this shift dress era we're living in.  One of my style rules is that if you're going to wear a shorter dress, the less form fitting the better (at least if you're going for a classier look).  Shift dresses are perfect for those stifling days of summer that are about to be upon us, have a hint of an homage to the 70s, and are flirty and feminine without being over the top.

I've recently discovered Tobi and they have plenty of shift dresses (in multiple styles) that you can sift through HERE.  Bonus points: Tobi has new inventory daily and have TONS of sales, so it's easy to snag something you want!  I'm in the Boho Babe Embroidery Shift dress in white and navy and I'm honest to goodness in love.  It's such a classic and timeless look and is SUPER comfortable to wear.  CLICK HERE to check it out on Tobi's site, as well as other colors it comes in (I may have to go back and snag it in the rose and blue color as well!!)  For measure, I'm wearing an XS and it's a perfect fit.

I wanted to keep the styling of this super simple because the dress really does stand alone.  So I wore my navy Nine West boots from this winter (sold out but you can similar styles HERE) and my beloved polka dot Kate Spade bag from YEARS back to give it a subtle pop of mixing of prints while still coloring inside the lines.  (Search other fun Kate Spade styles HERE or search Poshmark for this or similar polka dot bags!  What do YOU think of shift dresses??
Reminder: I've changed my Insta and Twitter handles both to @blairosaurus_rex (click to follow on Insta and Twitter) and have a new Facebook page for this blog and other projects coming up (HERE).  Please follow because I'll love you forever ;)

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

I'm rocking the Frankie Purple and Plum and seriously loving it.  I love how big the face is and it compliments my hair and many of my frequent signature colors that I wear.  The watches are made from wood so they're very durable and sturdy.  I thought the watches w…

Ocean Front Members Only

Is this a style post only I could bring you or what?  Not only did I mix prints (three times, as the Forever 21 shirt is gingham, the ModCloth briefcase is dinosaur printed, and my true vintage skirt is an ocean front border print!) but I'm mixing vintage with modern fashion.  It seems that many vintage-y bloggers tend to stray from any trends, which is silly to me because these bomber jackets are SO comfortable and practical for between seasons weather (and frankly, Members Only IS a vintage brand)!  I tied this whole look together with using the Members Only Satin Washed Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy with these platform heels from Amazon by Dadawen.  I feel the burgundy bookends bounce off the greens and blues nicely.

How's everyone's week been?  Thanks for allowing me to take a week off!  Not only did I have obligations at the Comedy Central Stage and the Upright Citizen's Brigade stage this week, but I was hosting one of my very best friends who came to visit me!  …
