pretty whites.

I have definitely been changing things up in my wardrobe by incorporating more pattern and even some black pieces.  But when I'm in a fashion rut (or really just have no time and want to fly out the door), I reach for my old staple of an all white ensemble.  Here are some pretty pieces I wouldn't mind reaching for.

I have a confession to make, I have purchased two of the very same item of clothing.  Ekkkkk!  It's a very rare occurrence, but I have found a few dresses that I fell in love with and decided I needed the exact same one in a different color.  I already own this lovely in blush, but I'm kind of thinking I might need to invest in tea or mint too.  And I know that they call this a "slip dress", but it's definitely more of a tunic on me.  I love love love it!


this dress.

So I think I already talked about this free people dress, but I just can't get enough of it, so I had to dedicate an entire post to it.  I wore it to an Anthropologie event and the amazing Abi Q snapped the below photo of me.  Thanks Abi!  I pulled out the dress again this morning and since it's sprinkling out I layered it up.  A white long sleeve tee underneath, skinny jeans, and these boots.  I'm telling you, this dress can be worn year's a keeper!

And a huge happy birthday to my father-in-law today! Wishing you an awesome day and I can't wait for lunch so we can celebrate.

retail therapy.

Sometimes a little retail therapy is necessary to get you through a tough time, right?  G and I headed out and picked up a few items over the weekend.  Mind you, we don't really "need" anything, but it was a nice little outing that was much needed.  Here are a few things I scooped up.  Ummm you know, cause a faux fur vest is totally a necessity, right?!?  The sales girl laughed as I handed her the kids size XL at Zara.  She said, "This is totally for you, right?  I buy tons of the girl's clothing here in the largest size they come in because it's just as cute as the women's stuff and half the price".  True true!

the office.

Happy Friday!  I love short weeks and am super happy that it's almost the weekend.  Yesterday I was on the hunt for some new casual weekend outfits, and started perusing Free People's website.  All of the sudden I noticed that they have a blog.  Well, an hour went by in the blink of an eye as I totally ate up every little piece of that blog.  My favorite posts were on their "office style".  Uhhhh, hello...I'd love to be sporting this look to the office every day.  So cute!
