I have consistently driven past this retro drive-in diner, Superdawg, and said, “I need to go there!” So when the bf suggested we go, I was on board. Actually, I believe I said, “Gah! Best day ever! Yes!” …what can I say, I’m enthusiastic about retro diners. Anywho, I believe I was slightly overdressed for the event (if there is such a thing), but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Superdawg is where it’s at if you’re in the area and looking for a fun and delicious flashback meal. Be sure to overdress for the event too.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) There’s often a question of whether one can pair denim with denim. I love how popular denim with denim has become. So my answer is a strong yes!! I often wear light denim with dark denim when if wear it together. However with this look, I wore light denim with light denim and added a dark sweatshirt. The result was a seriously comfortable weekend look.
2) I’ve often questioned sweatshirts at work. They can be exceptionally tricky to style in a conservative work environment. Generally speaking, I think sweatshirts should be reserved for the weekends. If you’re on the fence, you can try out a formal sweatshirt that is solid color (not heather) with some detailing. Overall, though, this is one trend that I think should probably be resolved for outside of work wear.
Does anyone else feel differently about sweatshirts at work? Have styling ideas? I hope everyone had a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Looks like fun! Intriguing weekend styling!
Wow! It looks like you have been incredibly lucky at the Gap! I love this outfit, those pants are so fun! 🙂
I love the outfit, you look so cute!!! Seriously I can’t say this enough….you find the best deals “EVER”!!!!
🙂 thank you!! I feel the same way about your cooking!! 🙂
Love denim on denim. I stay away from sweatshirts at work unless they are a solid and can be dressed up with a blouse underneath.
Wow I love that print on the sweatshirt 😍 and I agree about no sweatshirts to work. I recently bought one and though we can wear casuals to office on friday I wore it and realised it was more casual than they meant and so changed into something else! 😜
That’s happened to me before too!! 🙂
Lovely!! I agree to limit sweatshirts for casual outside work wear
Retro diners are so much fun!! Fun pics x
Love the outfit! 😀
i’m not usually that fond of denim pants (i do like their practicality, but i rarely think of them as anything special :D), but your polka dot ones stole my heart! i love the whole getup, and that retro diner looks adorable!
Thanks!! I love the polka dot pair too!
i adore this casual look! looks great on you! xx
Loving the jeans and the dancing dogs too! 😉
Cute outfit dear, love the color on the bag! What a fun pop of color!! xo – Lena
I love those polka dot jeans, hun! I’ve been on the look out for a pair just like them. Also looove the sweatshirt. Cute look. I need to pop into Gap this week.;)
Love this!! You look stunning, dear!! xoxo
You look beautiful on these colors mixed, those pair of jeans is way too cute:).
I absolutely love this look AND retro diners – score! The denim on denim is fun, but I’m loving the pattern mixing and the gold details (those shoes are fabulous and really bring out the gold on the sweater)!! 🙂
Loooove denim on demin, I’ve been playing with that one lately myself! What a cute diner! Your hair is getting so long! Gorgeousss!! 🙂 🙂 xo
Thank you~! I feel like I’ve been growing it out forever!!
Ummm that handbag!! ❤️
I absolutely love jeans! Your haarstyle is great ❤
Love the sweatshirt. I have been trying to pair a sweatshirt with a midi skirt, it is a nice way to glam up the sweatshirt. :)http://voices-in-my-head.net/
I really appriciate, that you make such an pro post. Love the scenery of that photoshooting and your outfitt
have a nice day!
Retro diner – count me in! 😀
LOVE those jeans and the scarf!! Also, how do I still own nothing denim apart from jeans?! A shocking oversight on my part.
I am pretty sure I have seen some – dare I say – “nice” sweatshirts on anthropologie’s website… They might be classy enough for work. But generally I totally agree with you. I haven’t actually purchased a sweatshirt in years. I just go the sweater route as they seem more versatile. 😀
Idealism never goes out of fashion
That’s a good point! The Anthro versions seem to be a little dressier, but agreed, they aren’t very versatile no matter where you get them!
Love the first photo! Superdawg looks like such a cute retro drive-in, reminds me of the old A&W drive-in fast food restaurants…Not sure if you guys have A&W (fast food restaurant chain) in the US? Don’t remember seeing any when I’ve been cross-border. Anyhow, great colour and detail on your sweatshirt. Perfect weekend look.
Yes! It’s a similar concept :)~!!
So cute look , I like how you matched the sweatshirt with the shoes, it’s perfect combination!
You know, I am not sure I can pick out one item here and say I love it the most, because this whole ensemble is so lovely! I love how it all flows and works together..the denim on denim, with the scarf, sweatshirt..everything , just goes so perfectly! Love this on you..
Stealing this sweater, and the heels, and the bag… all of this! Shhhh, don’t tell:)
You are SO cool, Melissa. LOVE those jeans, LOVE those shoes, LOVE that handbag. The scarf what a brilliant addition! LOVE LOVE LOVE what you are wearing and WISH WISH WISH it were me!!! Thank you for another great post! (((HUGS))) Amy
