READERS! Wow it’s been the longest I’ve ever been absent from Fashion Huntress and I apologize for the lack of posting! The good news is I’ve achieved a lot of my work goals over the past few months, and even better news is I’ve got a fabulous crew around me and the have been super supportive as I’ve taken risks at work and tried to push myself out of my comfort zone. There’s been some ups and downs at work, but mostly ups and the downs just mean I’m not playing it too safe (from what far more successful people tell me- ha!).

Ruffle shoulder top: Who What Wear Target ($10 marked down from $30) (more online here)

Jeans: Articles of Society via Nordstrom Rack ($36 marked down from approx $68)

Coat: Gap ($50 marked down from $130) (on clearance here) (yes that’s pink faux fur)

Bag: TJ Maxx, a few years ago

Shoes: Express, also a few years ago

I’m not even going to go on and on about denim today, because clearly I do that enough (long story short, I LOVE denim). I may have a problem (ie approx five denim shirts). But, let’s move on from that potential awkwardness, and focus on why I stock denim in this way. Case in point: the denim dress day.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Denim is so versatile. If there’s one thing to have around in your closet for casual Fridays, easy Mondays, or any day where you want to look put together quickly, pick up denim anything and add heels and/or big jewelry. Additionally, it’s definitely wearable all four seasons. Here are some of the ways I’ve styled this dress in the past:

2) There’s a really interesting section of Nordstrom Rack that has dresses for around $20. They aren’t clearance dresses; they just have a generally fairly low price point. I sometimes have to look around a little to find this area, but there’s normally a few racks that are the square (as opposed to round) racks that have the <$20 dresses. I’ve found the quality of these dresses to be good, though I would encourage machine washing on a gentle cycle and line drying, just to be on the safe side. 
 
Anyone else loving denim this summer? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! Happy Monday!!
