neutrals & bows.

Hello lovelies! I'm posting a bit late because I got tied up/distracted with other things, whoops.
Anyways, this is what I wore this past Saturday, to both the Dog Days DC sale (in the U Street Corridor area) and to a family dinner.

During the Dog Days sale I stopped at the Quarter Life pop-up shop and scored a vintage floral blouse for $15; Current Boutique where I got a vintage Liberty print Gap blouse as a present for my mom for $11 (and nearly a gorgeous pink shift dress, but alas, it was a tidbit too small!); Treasury, where I admired the gorgeous jewelry and the great curated vintage pieces; and Junction Vintage, where I scored a gorgeous ballet length vintage floral Liz Claiborne dress for $20 and matching earrings for $6! My goal was not to spend over $50 and I only went $5 over my limit (this is an accomplishment for me)! Pictures of my purchases to come soon, I promise!

Afterwards I got to spend some time with my boyfriend, and then had a nice dinner with my aunt, uncle, and parents. I've been staying with my aunt & uncle all summer during my internship, and this was the first chance my parents have had to come visit. It was very nice, and topped off with lemon bars I made on Friday (which, if I do say so myself, are pretty darn good).

Anyways, outfit! I really like how these photos turned out; my lens fogged up because it was so humid out and it created a pretty cool effect.

I'm wearing:
Necklace: Swarovski / gift
Dress: shop in Oxford Covered Market
Shoes: Blowfish Shoes
Bracelets: made by me & one from a friend
Eyeshadow: Loose Pigment in "Asphyxia" by Urban Decay

And now, a rare silly photo! (This is what happens when my boyfriend takes my outfit photos.)

How did you spend your Saturday?


  1. The dress is so pretty.I love the cute bow print :)

  2. I love that dress! Anything with a novelty print is an automatic win.

    I really wanted to check out Dog Days, but I knew I wouldn't be able to keep myself from spending. It sounds like you got a pretty good haul! I will have to make a point to budget it into my shopping for next year!

    And how disgustingly humid was it this weekend?!? Every time I went outside my sunglasses would steam up. Ew.
