OOTD | Neon Tan

Take 1: Graduation Day.
Leather jacket: Black Rivet | Dress: BCBGMAXAZRIA Avery | Belt: F21 | Heels: Prabal for Target

So back in this post I hinted that I pulled the trigger on a new graduation dress... it may have been a wee bit over the top. Though I guess a neon graduation dress was probably not out of the realm of foreseeable possibilities for a girl raised on honkytonk music.

Because nothing is ever allowed to go 100% smoothly in my life, it rained all day on graduation, the professor in charge of hooding me tried to choke me with the damn thing, and our dean of students decided to watch Sex and the City the night before and called me Samantha Jones instead of Johnson. What I lack in actual full-length outfit pics I make up for in funny stories.

Take 2: Graduation Night. Tan cargo jacket, cognac belt, the glittery Target sandals. No pictures, because we were much too busy scream-singing every sad song even remotely connected to graduation that we could find.

Take 3: Wedding. 
Cardi: Target, recent | Belt: Target, recent | Shoes: BCBG

My friend actually does look like a pinup girl, just not to this extreme. ;)
Had a wonderful time at one of my sorority sister's wedding this last weekend, though my shoes came off and my hair went up pretty quickly. We started the night with the wobble and ended with glowsticks and Thunderdrunk... sometimes you can just tell when a marriage is going to last.
