Fashionista Friday: Tiffini’s Casual Meets Dressy Sunny Summer Look

Dear readers, summer is sadly quickly coming to an end, so I wanted to feature this fabulous vintage summer look from Tiffini, a DC vintage + fashion maven and….is a General Manager at one of our Goodwill stores! Her look reminds me that you can look cute AND comfortable while exploring the neighborhoods of DC on a hot summer day. I stumbled upon this look by searching #mygoodwillfind on Instagram.

To be honest, I never really wear tennis shoes with dresses. On me, I feel like the look makes me look like a kid or just kind of awkward. I have trouble pairing the right shoes with the right dress in the perfect and suitable way.

But Tiffini does it so well. I should really start taking some cues from her! The converse and dress that she scored at one of the Goodwill stores mesh very well together.

In particular I love that the converse are very slimming on the foot. They’re also quite simple and works well as a basic shoe — they don’t distract one’s eye from the dress. Speaking of the dress, it fits like a glove on Tiffini! The length looks flattering as it hits the thigh at the appropriate spot. It also flares out in a way that creates a nice shape on her body.

What I love most is that the dress has a vintage pin-up sassy look to it. The little bow on the front is an excellent and feminine embellishment.

If you haven’t been convinced yet that Tiffini is a true style maven, this other look that I spotted below is hole in one. As you know, I’m a big fan of peplum, so this is an instant win in my books. I love the shape that it creates paired with the belt and simply denim shorts. Like the look above, this ensemble is quite casual but cute and dressy as the same time. I could see this being worn out on a day of exploring and then at night, on a casual date.
