jet set dress

| sweater: UO (from Shelby) | dress: ON | tights: UO | booties: Report (from Carina) | 

Just a couple quick notes on this outfit from last week: I hadn't washed this (hand wash only) sweater or dress for an embarrassingly long time, so they sat in my hamper for.ev.er. When I finally did wash them last week, it was like getting new clothes! My old favorite sweater, and I dress I've worn once, back in town. They pair so nicely together! This is somewhat of a solution to my shopping ban, which, by the way, I already made it one month! Can I get some applause or something?!

I managed to inherit these booties from Carina last time I visited her. I'm slightly wary of flat booties with my super-short legs, but I like wearing them with dresses. Can you see the cute braided strap?

Well, I'm escaping the snow flurries in Nashville, and off to Austin, TX for Sistertine's weekend in a few short hours! Yeee! I always feel like vacations come at just the right time. Like, I'm ready for a day off (tomorrow), exploring a new city, matching pj's, too much eating (and drinking) and some quality time with my little Peanut. Oh- and meeting Nicole, hopefully!


Wishing you all a very fabulous Valentine's Day, and weekend! Hope it's filled with so much candy that YOUR teeth hurt, and ssssooo much love.

Thank you for reading and all your lovely comments, I'll be back Monday! xo

One more thing: I am posting for Bri on Work Clothes, I Suppose, check it out!

I love finally washing things that have been in the hamper for weeks, especially if you forget they're there! I hope you have an absolute blast this weekend!

Cute dress and I agree-- those hand wash tops are a little annoying... I try to do hand washing every couple of weeks if possible but never really enjoy it :)

Your outfits are awesome, so glad I came across your blog!
cheers

I just finished a month-long shopping ban so I know how you're feeling -- congrats on sticking to it (especially in January, which always feels like such a long month!).

Larissa said...

Thank you for your kind words on my blog :) Its actually still 8 weeks so its still a while... but it feels weird to count to in weeks now instead of months. I am getting pretty exited and I little nervous :)

Those boots are adorable... and look awesome paired with a delicate floral dress. Not to mention your hair and eye brows look amazing. I'm a big fan of a strong, bold brow. So, I always wash my "hand wash only" items in the washer but I set it on either handwash/delicate and use cold water. I also turn the items inside out and stuff them in a zippered pillow case so they won't get damaged and then lay them out to air dry and it seems to work quite well. I've never had anything ever get damaged.... just a thought. I hate handwashing clothes!
