Blow out the candles: My little sister is legal!

Crop top (H&M, $6.95) Skirt (Materialaddict.com, $45) Sandals (Tory Burch, $225)

Cue the panic attack, my little sister, Kate, turned 18 years old a few days ago. Granted, I’m only two years older, but it made me feel like an old woman/proud mama. Nevertheless, it’s a rare occasion that I have an event to actually dress up for in good ol’ Colorado Springs. We went to The Melting Pot for dinner, where I got dressed up only to sit in a dark restaurant and eat obscene amounts of melted chocolate.

Anyway, this skirt is hands-down one of my favorite pieces of clothing, but I rarely have a place to wear it. It’s too fancy for class but too nice to want to ruin on a night out (especially with the chiffon.) I would say it’s perfect for a nice brunch, but it rises to extreme heights when I’m sitting down. Dinner is the perfect occasion for this high-low, but because it’s so memorable, it looks like I’ll have to retire it for awhile.

The biggest victory in this outfit lies within the shoes. I have been begging my mother to buy me a pair of Tory Burch sandals for months, and after too many failed attempts, I took matters into my own hands. Thanks to a Facebook ad, I joined Threadflip, an online consignment store. Go ahead and judge me for being okay with buying previously used shoes and bags, but there are a ton of items on this website that are brand new. That’s how these shoes were. Never been worn, they were on sale for $130 on the website and with an email coupon, I snagged them for only $96. Bargain hunting is my middle name, baby.

 

In case you were curious... Little bro's outfit was pretty cute too, even though she jacked my shoes.

Let me know what you think of my outfit and holla at me in the comments in section šŸ™‚
