dreamy diner


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.


Sweatshirt: Gap (approx $5 marked down from approx $40)
Denim top: Gap ($16 marked down from $60)
Jeans: Gap ($20 marked down from $60)
Scarf: Limited ($7 marked down from $35)
Heels: Michael Antonio via thrift ($4, retail for $50)
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!

  1. 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! 😜

  2. 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!

  3. 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.;)

  4. 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)!! 🙂

  5. 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/

  6. 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

  7. 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.

    xo, jackie

  8. 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..

  9. 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
