the final frontier.

My husband gave me this awesome dress for Valentine's Day, but it's hard to wear with tights or on non-casual days, so I hadn't had a chance to wear it yet.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: ThinkGeek, gift
Sweater: Old Navy
Boots: ASOS (link)
Necklace: Anthropologie
Earrings: ASOS

I got myself these boots as a birthday present—they're comfortable and give me a good amount of height, which I definitely need for a long dress like this. It's such a cool dress—the design is the painting that Captain Picard has hanging in his ready room in The Next Generation (nerd alert, I know).

star wars accents.

A new styling of my favorite Old Navy top—this isn't the outfit I had planned, but it worked out.

What I'm wearing:
Top: Old Navy
Sweater: Old Navy
Skirt: Gap
Tights: Target
Boots: Diba via DSW
Necklace: Express
Earrings: Hot Topic
BB-8 ring: ThinkGeek (gift)

I wore this on Star Wars day (May the fourth), so I decided to add in some Star Wars accents—rebellion symbol earrings, BB-8 ring, and starry necklace. I love how the internet celebrated Star Wars day, there were so many good memes and videos that came out. If it had been a Friday, I would've rocked the Death Star dress, but it's hard to get away with that in an office on a Wednesday.

small gold accents.

Happy birthday to meeeee! I turn 26 today!

I wore this outfit to work last week, while it was still unusually cold.

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Shop Ruche
Tights: Target
Heels: Restricted via DSW
Necklace: vintage
Earrings: J.Crew, gift

Another dress with a scalloped hem! Also, please excuse the wrinkles—I didn't have time to steam it and I'm afraid to iron this fabric. I couldn't get a good up close photo of it, but this necklace is a little bunny with a garnet (or red stone, not sure if it's real garnet) collar that I found in an antique store a few years ago—it's really cute and worked perfectly with this dress.

coral & lace.

I wore this last weekend to one of my best friends' weddings, and I really like how it turned out. It was a great wedding too, so much fun!

I looooove this dress—it's coral, lace, and has a scalloped hem, all things I love in a dress. It's always fun to get fancied up, too. Oh, and my birthday is tomorrow! So that's exciting.
