This was a difficult outfit to plan for a few reasons- it was going to be cold and I did not want to wear the standard jeans and a sweater (shocker that I don't want to wear the traditional go-to outfit) , so I really needed to rack my brain. My first thought was a printed dress. However because it was summer, almost everything was sleeveless or backless and I needed long-sleeves.
I scoured Esty, Ebay and Polyvore with no luck. My next stop was Forever21 as I needed some cheap basic tee's for the trip as well. Found this EPIC dress that was absolutely perfect! Had a little open back but it added a nice detail. Paired with a denim jacket in the AM and took it off once it warmed up. High-top sneaks were the perfect pair- love a dress with sneakers!
