It’s finally starting to look like spring here in Utah! I layered this little black dress (LBD) I found on the clearance rack at Forever 21 with the lace crop top I wore in this post. It can be purchased here.

Sunnies are from Tom Ford and my daisy bracelet is from the J. Crew Factory, both pieces are a little older.

I scored these white platform sandals  for $17.50!!! My white double pearl earrings were worn in the previous post and my Gucci leather clutch was my graduation gift from my wonderful mominlaw!

I dyed my hair deep violet over the weekend, if you guys want a tutorial on how I DIY’d my hair let me know!

I hope everyone’s having a fabulous Monday! Today I’m channeling an uptown boho chic vibe and am wearing a chiffon off the shoulder top from LuLu*s available here. I actually sewed an elastic band to the end of each of the sleeves because when I was working in a laboratory, the sleeves would risk contaminating my samples, baahahaaa.

The wool blazer I’m wearing in the first picture is a vintage Escada piece. My white straight leg pants, and wool hat are from Korea. My ornate Zara statement necklace is no longer available online but Amazon sells a very similar design here. I layered it with a pink crystal pendant I scored at Michael’s for $4!

I’ve worn the Prada sunnies, Nine West heels, and Gucci tote in previous posts.

Today’s outfit showcases my interpretation of the “grunge look.” I consider myself too old to pull off full on grunge, so I urbanized my look by adding chic details — like the tassel earrings and thigh high nylon socks. Aren’t these earrings adorable?! I got them for $4.68 and I love the quality!!!

Black tassel earrings | $4.68

Gold hair cuff | $4.90

Thigh high nylons | $7.98

Black tank | $3.53

Platform lace up ankle boots | $34.62

Don’t you love how most of the interesting items I buy are dirt cheap?! Hahahhaa

The killer spiked out leather cuff was my mom in law’s. She gave it to me because I stared at it with hungry eyes. I bought the oversized olive jacket in Korea. My distressed shorts are Dolce & Gabbana and my tote is from Louis Vuitton. Affordable distressed shorts, similar olive jackets, and my Gucci sunglasses are linked in the slider below.
