I know, I know, I’m waaaaaaay behind. Shush. I promise, I’m playing by the rules for the 30x30 and wearing this stuff every day (though I did cheat and swap out a dress – more on that later). I had a busy weekend, okay?
Anyway, I bought this dress in OHIO of all places. Not saying that Ohio isn’t a great place or anything – it’s just that it doesn't exactly come to mind when I think of fashion. I can’t remember what the little boutique I got it from it was called…something like The Juniper Tree.
Oh, and just so you guys know, it's not that I'm too snobby for stores like Gap, Old Navy, Target, or Loft - it's that none of those stores (except for Target) are close to where I live. However, there are several awesome little boutiques and consignment stores in my tiny little town, so they tend to be where I shop.
I love this dress for soooooo many reasons, but somehow it always ends up hiding in the back of my closet, and then I forget about it until I stumble across it again. It’s especially great for summer, obviously. It’s beautifully light, and I like that it’s white, but has all these great colors in it. I especially like the blue lines that I’m calling clouds – they give it a vaguely Japanese feel (though that could totally just be me going crazy).
I had to wear the cardi because I was teaching this morning, and it was COLD. When I wear a cardi over a dress like this, I normally belt it. I got this Abercrombie belt for $3 – awesome, right? It’s my new favorite belt, mainly because it’s teal, and teal’s one of my new favorite colors, though it takes a backseat to coral at the moment. I’m DATING coral, but I cheat on it with teal pretty often. I know, I know, I’m a horrible person.
