Thrift Store Score: Chambray by Day

Today's Thrift Store Score features this classic chambray shirtdress that I scored at a shop just outside of Hollywood.

I love that it fits a little large on me, because that ups the coolness and comfort factor. 
It's 100% cotton, and has one of my favorite features on dresses: 3 quarter inch sleeves!

I added a classic blue paper fedora, because at times, I like to follow the rule: Wear Hat When Possible
This enables me to utilize the 365 hats in my personal collection (sarcasm reigns-LOL)! I'm totally kidding- but no, I do have  a lot of hats...
Actually, hats provide an excellent accessory for my protective hair styles. I have worn my hair naturally (without a relaxer) for over a decade. 
Oftentimes I lather it up with my favorite oils/butters, put it in a low bun, and pop on a hat.



The white vintage doctor's bag that I'm carrying is another fantastic #ThriftStoreScore ! It was in pristine condition, and is just the perfect size to hold all of my stuff. For close up shots, go here.

For a hint of fun and color, I went with a pair of printed wedge sandals.


 And that my friends, concludes today's edition of Thrift Store Score!

Hat/fedora: Nordstrom
