Wearing Lately

Here are some updates of what I’ve been wearing these past few weeks.

I saw this Anthropologie dress while browsing a few weeks ago, and couldn’t resist ordering it. I have a special place in my heart for fringe, but lately some of my attempts at incorporating it haven’t been going so well (multiple fringed have made me look like I have colorful mustaches growing out of my toes). This dress incorporates it in a fun and easy to wear way though.

It’s sold out currently online, but I’d keep checking back for pop backs, which is how I got mine. I’d say it runs fairly true to size depending on how you like it to fit – I took a 00p. There’s also a few other great fringed dress options I found, including this adorable DODO BAR OR version, and this chic clean white sheath option, by Kate Spade. I wouldn’t mind adding either (or both) to my closet!

Suede Sandals Sole Society

We just came back from Hawaii, and I had bought these sandals about six weeks ago with the trip specifically in mind. I’m careful to always pack a pair of cheaper heels on resort holidays now, ever since I got a pair of gold trimmed suede Jimmy Choos soaked in ocean water. These Sole Society heels were my first foray into the brand and I was happy with what I received. A decent heel (but manageable), very simple and chic design, and comfortable soft suede. All for under $75. Mr. Feather liked these too (he’s always relieved when I buy simple shoes).

Here are the same shoes again on a different day – worn with another dress! They’re such easy summer heels.

Wearing Pink Sabi Anjou

Zara dress (old, similar linen/cotton dress for under $100), PASSAGE 88 Sabi shawl in pinks, Sole Society heels, Goyard Anjou tote

I certainly don’t wear dresses every day (or heels), but I have been finding that I’ve been able to wear heels more often, and even smaller bags! Baby Feather more easily entertains himself so I don’t need to lug around lots of toys and goodies, and he’s getting too heavy for his carrier, so he spends more time in the stroller (and thus I don’t have a 25 pound weight dragging on my torso, making heels very unstable).
