Wearing Lately

Here’s a few pictures of what I’ve been wearing the past few weeks…and a few more shots of the Sabi shawl as well!

I have a special place in my heart for peasant dresses, and almost always end up buying them when they aren’t too sheer, can be worn with a regular bra without showing, and are knee length or a bit above. Luckily for my wallet, most peasant dresses don’t fit all three criteria. This Alice & Olivia dress one did, so I had to try it.

My sandals are Caslon and were a pleasant surprise. These are true to size to a tad small – I’m usually a 6.5, but needed a 7 in these.

I bought this white knit dress from Banana Republic earlier this summer – it was my first purchase from Banana for what feels like years! I’ve been finding a lot of very tempting goodies there lately though, including this very fabulous navy jacket. Continue Reading
