vintage dots & circles.

Another very belated outfit post, from almost exactly a month ago. This was when we went down to St. Augustine, Florida to visit my dad and stepmom who just moved there—it's a beautiful place and I'm so happy we have an excuse to visit!

Photos by my fiancee.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: vintage (60s)
Flats: H&M
Necklace: Baublebar

Please ignore my horrible sunburn (that to this day is still fading). Never enough sunscreen for my paleness. 

Anyways, this dress! Isn't it the cutest? I bought it at Amalgamated Vintage in Alexandria on a brunch & thrifting trip with Stephie & Brenda. It's definitely a styling challenge for me but I couldn't resist it. I may take it up a bit in the top because it's a bit long for my torso (but I'm also torn because should I really try to alter a vintage dress?). Thoughts?

icons of summer.

Long time no blog! Real life has been busy, guys. Wedding things are ramping up and work has been busy. But, I'm back!

Also, I totally lied about this post being my only shorts post for the summer—I managed to squeeze another one in! This week is looking like it could be shorts weather which is weird given it's mid October.

What I'm wearing:
Top: Forever 21 (old)
Tank Top: Old Navy
Shorts: J. Crew
Flats: H&M
Earrings: This Loves That
Bag: Cath Kidston

This is one of maybe three sheer tops I own, but I love that I can wear it with a ton of different things. And for a Forever 21 piece, it's held up a surprisingly long time.

In other slightly relevant news, my friend Lisa wrote a great article for XO Jane on the toxicity in cosmetics which I highly recommend reading.

tiny peplum & bows.

Time for a casual Friday outfit on a Thursday!

What I'm wearing:
Cardigan: Target
Top (formerly a dress): Urban Outfitters (old)
Jeans: Old Navy
Shoes: b.o.c. via Nordstrom
Necklace: Shabby Apple

Remember this dress from way back when? It was entirely too short for me to wear as a dress, but I couldn't bring myself to put it in the donate bag. So, I decided to turn it into a top! I really like it and know I'll wear it a lot more. Yay for refashioning!

last days of summer.

Oh hellooooo! I did not mean to take a two week blogging hiatus, but that happened. It's been a busy month: I attended a conference for work, we went to Florida for a weekend, wedding planning, various social events, and on top of that work and working out as consistently as possible. So, blogging took a back seat. Now it's time for catch up!

What I'm wearing:
Top: H&M
Skirt: Thrifted
Shoes: DSW
Necklace: Urban Outfitters (old)

Just a simple work outfit for the last few warm days. Given the craziness that is DMV weather, it's still close to 80 when it's October—but that works for me!

five photo friday: breckenridge, colorado.

Happy Friday! About two weeks ago my fiance and I went up to the mountains of Colorado, to a great little town called Breckenridge, for a quite awesome wedding. We knew the wedding would be awesome, but we didn't know the scenery would be so amazing! Here are a few photos I took while we were there.

This is the amazing house we stayed in!

Have a great weekend!
