I also have to mention it didn't take long for my Instagram account to come in handy for outfit inspiration. I copied this outfit from Carylee the same night she posted it for my own night out. (It also came in handy to live two time zones behind her!)
Carylee's outfit details: Here

And here are the rest of the outfits, I've posted in the last week:

FOUR: Barcelona Cami: Express (In Light Pink) / Jean Shorts: Target / Sandals: Similar / Necklace: Old (Similar / Bracelet: Old (Similar)
I also talked about this Oversized Plaid Shirt recently (in this post). It finally arrived and even though I had seen it in store and on blogs, I hadn't tried it on myself. I was pretty surprised at how sheer it is!
I'm wearing a white cami in this photo and it's definitely a requirement for this shirt. In the product description it says "Sheer Chiffon," so I guess it's my fault for not reading the fine print in advance. I still haven't decided whether to keep or return it yet since I wasn't expecting it to be so sheer, but I just wanted update for anyone else considering this shirt so you know what you're getting yourself into.
I also ordered a few pieces of jewelry from Express during the current sale and am waiting to get those in the mail. But while I was browsing through their jewelry, I couldn't help but notice that a lot of their items look very similar to Stella & Dot pieces that are popular with so many bloggers. Take a look at some examples below:
(I wore the Express version of this necklace in an outfit here.)
The Express version of this necklace (on the right) is one of the pieces I ordered during the sale:
So while I wouldn't say these are exact replicas, they definitely give a similar look at a great price if you get them during the current Express sale!
