what I wore : third time's the charm

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

details
dress - Modcloth
necklace - c/o Rings&Tings
camera bag - Jo Totes

This is the third time this dress has been featured on the blog. It's actually kind of strange how long this dress has managed to stay in my collection of dresses considering it isn't black and white striped. Something about it though, I just can't part with it. Seems I can't part with that one leg bent behind the other pose either. Haha!
2012 // 2013 // 2014

I can't believe it's almost August already! It's also officially my birthday week! This year is flying by so quickly, isn't it? The weather seems like it might be cooling down a little bit, or maybe we're just having a good week. I missed wearing sweaters. Not that this one is heavy or anything, but it does feel nice. I'm dreading winter and being stuck inside (and not riding my bike!!) but if it could stay like this forever, I'd be okay with that.
xoxo

  7. I am a BIG fan of yellow, even thought 99% of the stuff I wear is black.

  9. It's a beautiful dress! I just commented on another one of your posts about how much of a mustard junkie I am, and, well... still a mustard junkie! And I love how versatile it is, whilst still being like... distinctive and unique!

  10. Man, I make that leg pose all the time too. It just feels so right. I didn't really notice until my boyfriend was reading my blogroll over my shoulder and was like "why do all you blogger ladies do that leg pose?" Haha!

    1. Hahaha! It just looks so much better than standing with both legs completely straight.

  16. That dress is so adorable, and I love how creative your different stylings are. When I have something I love, I tend to wear it the same way over and over again - the same way if I try something I love at a restaurant, I have a hard time changing it up when I go back. You are inspiring me to be more creative and branch out!
