Happy Wednesday! I'm soo glad it's the middle of the week! Only a few more days until the weekend! Work has been crazy! I love the fun flirty feel of this American Eagle dress. I think it has a sort of 50's vibe to it because of the semi-corsetted top. I added the boots to give the look a little bit more of an edge---to punch up the "just another sundress" feel. 

Also! I'm being featured over on my friend Jacy's blog! She's a great blogger with an amazing blog that covers everything from personal style to motherhood! Go on over and check her out!
