Concert OOTD! (Outifit of the Day)

I went to see Jill Scott & Kem in concert (along with Salt n Pepa and Doug E Fresh) last week... the performances were amazing and the concert was so much fun!

I've never done an OOTD before, so; I decided to post one for you all. Since it was a concert and it was hot (90+ degrees), I wanted to dress up, show some skin and still keep it classy all at the same time.









What I'm wearing:

-One sided shoulder dress: Thrifted, for under $10!
-Faux croc clutch: Ebay
-Brown beaded sandals: Payless
-Designer drops statement necklace: Cookie Lee Jewelry
-Oversized shades: Retro City Sunglasses
