the details
hat - thrifted
glasses - c/o BonLook
coat - Target (a few years back)
dress - Curry Me Away via Modcloth
belt - thrifted
tights - c/o Tabbisocks
shoes - c/o Blowfish (fringe added by me)

I've come down with the flu so you'll have to forgive me that I have nothing too insightful at all to say about this outfit. I spent the whole day yesterday in bed napping on and off. While I feel much better today I'm definitely still not 100%. I'm running at about half capacity, moving a little slow, sniffling a lot and devouring lots of cough drops. So I'm spending a second day in bed. I'm feeling pretty restless though, I just want to be better already and to go outside! It looks like such a nice day for a bike ride, alas I really don't have any energy. I don't remember the last time I was sick, well stay in bed all day sick. I've had a few colds here and there but nothing like this. Here's to hoping for a quick recovery!

Hope you're having a great day! I'm back to my routine of napping and reading in bed. 
xoxo

Psst. This is the second time I've shared a way I've worn this dress on the blog, you can find the first here.

  6. Oh I'm sorry you're sick. I have a cold, so it's not as bad, but I still don't feel like doing much. The problem is that I just started a 30 day, 30 bags project a few days ago, so I have to do some sewing every day :) But I managed to get it done the last 2 days and I'm feeling better. Hope you can ride your bike again soon :)

  14. This dress just might be my favorite one of yours. It is the perfect style and colour and looks just darling on you. And I might add, I can't believe you got that wicked coat at Target. We just got Target in Canada. I haven't been yet- clearly I should get over there. I hope you're having a nice day!

  31. Hi, I looove the color palette in this post. I love gray anyways, but that coat is gorgeous. And looking at the dress I think I should add something in that color to my room.

    You look beautiful as always and I hope you feel better soon.
