Color Block Shift

calvin klein black mulesLately, I have loved seeing the different murals that have popped up around Birmingham. I shared this one almost a year ago. I was scrolling through Instagram and saw an amazing mural of Vulcan. So the goal of last weekend was to find the mural and take some fun pictures in front of it. There are actually three Vulcan’s all in row in different colors but sadly a car was blocking the other two.

Now onto the fashion. I picked up this amazing color block shift dress at the same time as this striped one. If you can’t tell I am a sucker for black and white shifts. The bonus to this one is that it has pockets! It is so soft and I can’t wait to wear it throughout the summer. I paired it with this black hat, that I am now obsessed with, and my favorite mules.

    I love how simple this is yet the pretty accessories make it special. I am so jealous you are in bare legs sandals and a sunny hat. There are 6 inches of snow here. I love the cute sandals, hat and bag, by the way. =)

    So glad I stopped by, today. Also, starting tomorrow I am hosting my own linkup called “Thursday Moda” so welcome by and link up. Thanks so much, Ada. =)

    • Thank you! I would hate to be in snow at this point. I am definitely ready for Spring and Summer now.

  • Love this dress! Simple and beautiful! Great photos too!

    • Thank you! I love mules and never say never on the hat. I never wore hats a few years ago because I thought they all looked terrible on me. Now I love them.

  • Such a simple and lovely outfit (I ADORE that hat! )
