what I wore : polka dots

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

jean jacket - thrifted
dress - Spotted Downtown Dress via Modcloth
necklace - Buzz Worthy Beauty Necklace c/o Modcloth (last year)
 back patch - Stay Home Club
pins - tooth by Rachel O, world's greatest from an estate sale
socks - Forever 21
Things have been kind of quiet in the outfit post department lately, huh? The main reason - holy cow it's been cold. I really have no idea how I did it in previous years but I'm really just not into standing in the snow trying to look cute and pretending I can still feel my fingers right now. Soon I'll get back into the swing of things, when it warms up. I'm really excited - and nervous - to have to find new places to shoot now that I'm living in a brand new city.

I really love this dress. I bought it on a whim because apparently I can't resist a black and white dress. I wore it for the very first time when I saw Man Man in Pittsburgh back in October. It hasn't gotten much wear since then due to weather so whenever I put it on I think of that night. It was my first solo overnight trip so kind of a big deal. I can't wait to wear this outfit over and over and over all summer long. I'm really missing my jean jacket.

Hope you're having a stellar Wednesday!

PS. Say goodbye to orange hair! It's gone!

  5. I hear ya on the cold. I'm guessing you got snow again today too? I was so bummed out when I woke up this morning to snow again, UGH. I wanna start doing outfit posts myself, but aint no way I'm standing outside for 'em!

    Regardless, your outfit is looking adorable today. Jean jackets always seem to improve a look, haha! And your hair has become a really gorgeous color!

  6. Lovely dress, goodbye orange!, what color did you get?

  7. Really cute outfit! The dress is so cute and I love that little bee necklace. Ugh I would LOVE to wear a dress today but it's 16 degrees in St. Louis! Probably not going to happen haha.

  8. I got the Lunar Ballet Flats for Christmas this year and I only JUST wore them for the first time this past weekend. It was the only day I didn't have to worry about snow slush! I can't wait to pair them with socks like you have here!

  9. Those socks are the best! I would love to hear how you style your hair.

  12. Oh my, this is such a cute outfit! I love everything about it, especially the kitten socks and the little tooth!
    Huh, I guess polka dots are coming back again. I haven't been keeping up with fashion trends lately, I should definitely work on that though. Hm, I wonder if stripes and ska patterns are having a comeback as well...
    You look gorgeous, I adore your hair and I'm looking forward to more (and more frequent) outfit posts from you!

  13. i love your blog


  14. Hello there from Spain! I am looking forward for seeing your new hair color and I wish you the best in your new adventure: living in the city with your 'family' (hey, cats and dogs are a lot of times better than people =) )

  15. I really like all the little details in this outfit, like the socks and the brooches on your jean jacket. Those shoes are pretty magical, too. I can't wait to see what color your hair will be next! (Orange did look really nice on you, but then every color does.)

  16. I'm still totally lusting after those shoes, I think I may have to order some in brown :)
