*blows dust off of blog*

Hola! Nothing like a little late night browsing that makes me remember I have a blog. To say I’ve been busy and my blog has been put on the back burner is an understatement. Nevertheless, I thought I’d pop in, say hello, and share a few dresses I found on Dorothy Perkins and Gap.

When I see a modest dress, I nab it! I’m a major fan of one piece dressing, and over the past several months I’ve found myself liking dresses more than skirts; dresses are just so much easier to wear.

Gap is having a sale, and this weekend you can use the code WEEKEND to get 35% off of your total purchase.

Dorothy Perkins is always having a sale, and you can get 15% off of your order with DPINT15. Free shipping over $50 using DPSHIP50. Keep in mind that Dorothy Perkins is a UK company, but the sizes are US sizes.

That’s it for now. Hopefully I’ll come out of hiding once summer break begins!

Now that  the modest style challenge for July is over, I feel like I need an Instagram detox. This was the last outfit for the last day of the challenge;  the challenge was to wear an outfit with all the items coming in under $35. My blouse was a $5 H&M find, my skirt was a $12 Dorothy Perkins purchase, I scored my Forever 21 shoes for $8 via Buffalo Exchange, and I bought my purse in Portugal last year for $10.

Here are a few more photos that made it to Instagram, but I didn’t blog about.

Adult Saltwater Sandals
 This week has been a busy week for me; my mom and sister are coming to visit for the next few days, so I’ve been attempting to prepare for their arrival. That means a bunch of cleaning, purging, and organizing–stuff I’ve been meaning to do for awhile, but I never got around to doing it (nothing like yo’ mama’s arrival to make you go into a cleaning tizzy).

Adult Saltwater Sandals
A few weeks ago I placed an order for an adult sized pair of Saltwater Sandals from Zappos. However, when they arrived I go a size kids’ size 9! I called Zappos, they were sold out of the red (OF COURSE!), and they sent me a gold pair of Saltwater sandals for FREE and told me to keep the pair they sent! I’m planning on giving those to my friend’s daughter.

I do like my gold pair, but I really wanted a red pair of Saltwaters; I ended up getting them at a local shoe store and I love them! I remember wearing Saltwater sandals as a kid, and about six or seven years ago my friend Cheric wore her Saltwaters to church camp, and I fell in love with them again! Salwater sandals have been on my mind every summer since then, but I didn’t buy a pair (or two) until this summer. They seem to be everywhere and I almost didn’t buy them.

Adult Saltwater Sandals
I’m glad I got them, and if you’re interested in a pair for  yourself, here are a few things you should know:

  • When ordering online, be sure to order the big kid/adult size.
  • The shoes run large; I ordered my normal size, but I could have gone down a full size.
  • They are made for water; when we were in Carmel a couple of weekends ago, I wore these into the ocean with no problem. They dried quickly, but they also stretched out and got a little loose.

I’m wearing a GAP chambray shirt (similar, Day 23 of the Style Challenge!), a Dorothy Perkins skirt, Saltwater Sandals, and a Harper Reversible Tote.
