Sound Check

I actually wore this on Wednesday but life (which should actually be non-life thanks to a ridiculously intensive workload) has kept me pretty damn busy.  I'm going to be doing weekly updates of the projects I do for my classes, so look out for a blog post sometime this week/early next week on what I've been up to/has been sucking away my life.  This is the second lovely piece I snagged from Modcloth - I ended up going for a M size as it was the only one left and because this lovely shirt-shift dress would probably look a nicer on a looser fit.  The officially named the 'Sound Level Headed Dress' is kind of brilliant and I promise you that I am not getting paid/sponsored to say this whatsoever.  The end of summer has still been pretty damn hot and the fit and fabric are oh-so-easy-breezy in summer heat, the slight high-low hem of the dress means I can show off that leg and avoid wind flips in the back, not to mention I've never had a geometric dress quite like this.  On top of all that, the neon accent edges are a really cute touch which I didn't expect because the color was a little richer on the website, but not unwelcome as I have no hints of neon in my closet.  The little crop cardi is surprisingly a great deal from F21 which was neat little find - I love the retro pattern and although I could definitely work it in a more preppier style, I went for a little throwback color blocking for the day.

I was also extra excited for this look because my other amazing, amazing purchase came through - namely, these mint gingerbread man print wedges from ASOS which I first spotted on Lauren from Horrible Lauren here.  I did find them a bit exxy though, so I kept them on my waiting list and lo and behold with the massive back to school sale, plus a extra 10% deal at the checkout I was sold and these were ALL MINE.  They are still on sale at ASOS here so snap up a pair if you hear the call ;)
