Dress – F21 (similar) / Vest – H&M (similar) / Ankle Sandals – c/o Choies

This outfit pretty much sums up my summer uniform.  A simple easy-breezy dress, a denim vest and some ankle sandals / boots (the hybrids are where it’s at guys).  Although, I am on the hunt for a more summer appropriate hat versus the wool.  I still can’t seem to keep this old thing off my head.  The weather has been epic the last few weeks…I have a feeling it’s going to be a good summer!

Are any of you guys Lightroom users?  I am so comfortable with Photoshop that it was hard for me to decide if it would be worth the switch to LR.  But after some convincing on the time saving aspect, I decided to give it a go.  I am just getting my feet wet in how it all works but so far, I am loving it! I edited these photos with Lightroom 4 VSCO presets.

TGIF! Hope you all enjoy your weekend!  We will be celebrating my sis who is graduating from PT school tomorrow. Woot woot! The girl has been at this college thing for 10 years now!  10 years!!!  That blows my mind.  So proud of her!

    I’m a LR user who switched from PS a few months ago! I was hesitant at first, but LR’s amazing workflow convinced me that it was a winner! And I’m in love with VSCO ;) It’s just amazing.

    Love your outfit too! Totally my summer uniform as well. Dresses are just so easy!

    I love this look! I wish you’d share some of that awesome weather, this would have to be the longest winter I have ever experienced, and we’ll be heading to Australia when it’s winter there!

    I’m actually just getting my head around Illustrator at the moment. Photoshop looks scary, though I’d love to get into LR. Personally I’m a technical dud so I use iPhoto (cringe) xxx

      Give Photoshop a try Tasha! It’s not as scary as you think. I learned it on my own through tons of online tutorials and now know it like the back of my hand!
      ….and sorry about the weather!! Wish I could throw over some of this sunshine :)

    beautiful! I was just thinking of getting a uniform like that hahaha…I’m in a hunt for a white dress so thanks for the inspiration!

    happy graduation to your sis! hope you have a great weekend

    VSCO is amazing! I use both LR and PS. They kind of serve different purposes for me. LR is for quick basics and PS fixes more complicated, specialized ‘issues’.

    Another tip: You can put videos through LR and VSCO to give them a nice little color adjustment!

    YES!! I recently got lightroom too and it’s saving me so much time! Lovely outfit!

    These pictures are so incredibly beautiful-you look like you stepped right out of Coachella. :)

    Also I love LR! It’s way better than PS for basic editing (in my opinion).

    I don’t care what anyone says, denim jackets (and vests) are a girl’s best friend. Love your style, lady!

      I know! I am kind of stuck on my wool hat but feel like I ought to change it up for summer! Let me know if you find a good one :)
      PT school = Physical Therapy school. I guess I should have clarified that one! xoxo
