the perfect date

{What I Wore: J.Crew jacket // Old Navy rockstar skinny jeans & ballet flats // H&M polka dot top (similar) // Matt & Nat vegan leather purse (similar) }
I like when my friends get up before me & post their cute outfits on Instagram... makes getting ready a breeze!
Also, my fiancé remembers quotes from every movie he has ever seen & was the one to remind me about the perfect date - April 25th
So I put on my light jacket & enjoyed this quintessential Spring day!
I don't know what Doug & I were looking at, probably our neighbors creeping on our photo shoot!
Have you ever been inspired by Instagram to get dressed in the morning?
What is the perfect day for you?

  5. You look gorgeous, as always! I love your flats–I surprisingly don't have a simple black pair like this...all of mine have some sort of embellishment!

  15. I don't use instagram (haven't figured out what the hype is all about yet) but I check out Go Chic or Go Home and my favorite blogs daily for inspiration!

    By the way, how do your feet stay dry in flats??

  16. Instagram is totally worth all the hype! And to keep my feet dry in flats I either avoid puddles on slightly drizzly days, or bring out my favorite ballet flat wellies are more seriously rainy days!

  18. Haha I bet they would - I have several of Matt & Nat's vegan purses, they are made of paper (!!!), but look like leather & are totally durable (the one pictured is over 5 years old!)

  23. I was so happy when I thought your post title might be a reference to Miss Congeniality, but I love even more that your fiance came up with it haha. I wish I would have bought that jacket when it was out. It looks so cute with the polka dots!
