Ruffles & Giraffes

What I'm wearing:
*H&M Ruffle Dress (similar here and here)
*anthropologie City Safari Belt
*Aerosoles "Adventure" Sandals (similar here)
*MICHAEL Michael Kors Knot Purse (similar here and here)

I am a little blue today because the rest of my family left last night. I was really sad to see them go! Feeling a little left behind sucks, but I guess New York is a pretty cool place to be left behind. I decided to cheer myself up by taking a little trip to anthropologie. I tried on a whole bunch of stuff (reviews will be coming soon) and fiercely perused the sale racks, but nothing really caught my eye. I even was walking around with this adorable Porridge top, but at the end put it back.

This blue ruffle dress has been sitting in my closet forever! I bought it ages ago, it was only $10 at H&M, and I couldn't resist snapping it up. I decided that with a solid colored dress, a fun belt like the City Safari would go great. And while I was helping my sister pack yesterday, I re-discovered these fun yellow shoes in my closet. Don't you love it when that happens? They were hidden in a shoe rack that had just become covered with lots of miscellaneous things that fell off the hangers in my closet. I only wore them a couple of times last year, so I'm hoping to get more wear out of them this summer.

 These are a bit more of a darker yellow in real life. They were actually listed as "orange".

This was such a random purchase but I adore it! You know me and my animal motifs.

This bag was a gift from my sister. It is really easy to just throw on your shoulder (perfect for browsing in a store like I did today) and fits a ton.


  1. Those shoes are the perfect accent!! I adore your belt and that dress for 10 bucks!? I wish I lived close to an H&M!

  2. You look fabulous! I love your whole outfit. What a fantastic deal on your dress. I never seem to find anything when I go to H&M?!

  3. I love that dress with the cute accents!

  4. I love the ruffles on the dress, they're so sweet! Those shoes are perfect and the belt is amazing. Great combo!

  5. Aww, such a sweet outfit. I love the blue and yellow together, the belt being the perfect touch bringing it all together.

  6. Rosa, I love the giraffe belt with that dress! It's so cute! The colors really pop wonderfully against the navy blue and the yellow shoes are so great too. I really like this outfit.

  7. Love this! The blue and yellow go so well together and that belt is fantastic.

  8. What a great deal on the dress! I never find deals like that here in San Francisco. I bet if you went through your closet, you'll find more hidden treasurers.

  9. Awesome combo! I have the same dress, but usually wear it with a tan or brown belt. I've also paired the dress with the Anthro Pindot tights. Funny thing is, I recently rediscovered my yellow shoes as well! I'm going to give that a try! Thanks :)
