Today was my second day at Lush, and as part of the black and white dress code, I wore this dress I got from Forever 21 last year. It's one of my favorite staple pieces - with thick straps so my bra straps don't show and it's short but not too short. In the winter I can pair it with tights, cardigan, and boots and I'm set. It's such a versatile dress, and because it's monochrome it goes with all kinds of accessories. And the fabric has just enough stretch it it where it hugs the body in all the right places. It's so comfortable.
We drove down to Lefty's Drive-In in University Place to shoot at this adorable painted mural. The whole vibe of the place is beachfront with surfboards and everything. It really felt like summer today, and it just felt right having the location reflect it as well as the temperature.
I belted the dress with this nude wide belt from Marshall's. I got this one the same time I got my Michael Kors belt from this last outfit. It, again, is another one of those pieces that will go with everything because it is nude.
The shoes are my Kimchi Blue Sweetheart Ankle Tie Skimmers from Urban Outfitters. Right now they only have the black ones in stock, but I like these cement-colored ones. They're neutral, but not as harsh as a black, and a little more interesting than a brown or tan. Plus, I love the ankle straps - they had such a girly touch to any outfit.
My lipstick is Sounds Like Noise from Mac. It ended up coordinating with the mural so well that it felt meant to be.
My little locket is from Fuego, and I love how it looks like one of those vintage lockets you might find in your grandma's jewelry box. It's another sweet girly touch.

I swear my next outfit won't be based around my monochrome dress code, but I've just been so excited for my new job that I couldn't help but share my excitement with you guys. And the song this post is titled after is a Panda Bear track from his Person Pitch record. Oof that's a beautiful record.
