the details
jacket - thrifted
tooth pin - Rachel O's on etsy
rainbow tooth pin - vintage
tooth with hat pin - c/o Modcloth
socks - Target
shoes - Neo c/o Blowfish Shoes

This is one of my all time favorite outfits. It's something I find myself grabbing for just about every occasion and above anything else in my closet. No matter what I feel confident and cute in this outfit and that's what matters the most to me in the outfit. It was the first thing to go in my bag last week when packing for our little trip to Chicago over the weekend.

Modcloth recently asked me to be a guest judge in their "Chic in a Snapshot" contest. All you have to do is take a head-to-toe photo of you in your most fabulous outfit then post it to instagram with the hashtag #fashionforall. Myself and two other bloggers, Katie of Skunkboy Creatures and Bonnie of Flashes of Style, will each be picking a favorite to win a $100 Modcloth gift certificate. For the full contest details, check out the post on Modcloth's blog right here.

Hope you have a fabulous day! I had a TON of fun in Chicago but I'm so excited to be home and see my kitties. I'm also really excited to look through all my photos of our little trip and of course, share them soon!
