This chilly weather lately has been killing me. I never know what to wear. All I know is that layering is key! And scarves. You can't tell that well in the photo but the cords that I'm wearing are dark grey. I thought the green-gold cardigan looked nice with the polka dot top from H&M that makes me feel like Emma Pillsbury.
I know I've been neglecting this blog recently, but I'm back! I've just been busy with work, and having too much fun before and after, and rarely got a chance to take a photo of my outfit, or it was too dark to take a decent one. But to make up for my absence I finally took some photos of some recent acquisitions to review.
First off is the Homegrown Dress, which is currently on sale at anthropologie. I've loved this dress since I spotted it in the catalogue. My typical size 4 fit perfectly, although this dress definitely needs a belt. I used the grey Snakebite Belt to bring out the subtle greys in the print, but I think it would look great with the Looping Lanes Belt as well. The orange strappy sandals (similar style here) may be a little too matchy-matchy, but I love how it brightens up the look. The skirt is super full and feminine, which may be too much for other people but I love it.
The Speckled Ink Dress in Purple has been on my radar lately, and I decided to take the plunge. This Plenty by Tracy Reese Dress is yet another jersey dress win for me from anthropologie (my other new favorite is the Shifting Feathers Dress). I love the drape-y Grecian inspired look, and the heathered purple color is a lovely color that I never really went for before. For sizing reference, I am wearing a Small in this photo.
I am really excited to wear the Gaillardia Skirt. If it had been nicer out today, this would have been the outfit that I would have worn. The skirt is swingy and soft, and with the pull on waistband the XS fits nicely at my waist (I prefer my skirts to be higher, since I have a long torso). I wanted to mix stripes and florals in this outfit, and thought the striped tee from Zara (similar here) layered under a casual chambray shirt (similar here) was a subtle way of doing it. You may notice me wearing this outfit very soon.
I just realized now that after my impromptu hiatus that I've reached 400+ followers! Thank you so much to every single one of you, I will be posting an awesome giveaway very soon, so make sure to check back. Now I'm off to catch up on all of my blogs, I've barely sat down at my laptop these last few days.
