What do you do when your mother nicely hems a dress for you? You promptly manage to not featured it on the blog foooorrrr…I don’t know…maybe 8 months? #whoops

But look Mom, I’m wearing it now! ;)

This beautiful olive green dress used to be this maxi dress (last seen here). Though I loved the way it looked as a maxi dress (so Grecian, right?), I knew I would wear it much, much more once it was safely above my knees.

Because while these giraffe legs are great and all, they make lots of things difficult. Like walking (in general), but specifically walking while constricted by the fabric length of a beautiful maxi dress.

So Mom, olive you a lot for hemming this dress and saving me from myself/legs. Oh, and for about a billion other more important reasons and things.  <3

ps. These Old Navy d’orsay pumps look like a million bucks and are super affordable (they do run big though, as a warning)!

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. An adorable (and navy) anchor sweatshirt? Yes, please!
  2. Blogger love of the week: My dear friend Sarah is KILLING it lately. I’ve been pinning every one of her looks lately, but this floral maxi dress and ankle boots look is PERFECTION!  And it doesn’t hurt that her beautiful dress is from Target!
  3. These might be the cutest pair of heeled sandals I have seen. The pastel colors, the circle cutout straps, the block heel. Can they get any more unique and fun?! I think not…
  4. This is EXACTLY how I feel about off-the-shoulder, bare shoulder, peek-a-boo shoulder, cold-shoulder, and one shoulder tops (and seriously, stay away from my summer dresses). Move along, please. But that’s the best part about trends…sometimes you love them, sometimes you loathe them!
  5. I can’t remember if I already linked to it or not, but this circle bag from Madewell is the bag of my summer dreams.
  6. Gimme this navy plaid midi dress…it’s made for my closet!
  7. Be right back, buying this castle across the pond.
  8. Definitely do not need these gingham print flats, but definitely still want them! So cute!
  9. Did you guys hear the news that Jenna Lyons is leaving J.Crew? I can’t tell now whether or not that’s good news for the brand or not, but either way, it is definitely the end of an era. Man Repeller wrote a lovely tribute to her and all the ways she might have subtly changed up the fashion game!
  10. This eyelet collar sweater is GORGEOUS, affordable, and comes in 4 different colors. And yes, I want them all!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Just kidding, I’m doing YARD WORK this weekend. The bane of my existence. How is it that someone who is so bad at growing good things can manage to grow the massive amount of weeds already in my backyard? #help
  • But this print-mixing, all-favorite-colors outfit is kind of making up for it….and the fact that I am going on a double date for brunch tomorrow morning.
  • And I honestly can’t stop wearing these shoes with every single outfit. I thought they would be hard to pair with items, but it’s almost too easy! I scored these off of Poshmark and would highly recommend searching for a pair of your own! Or we can all write a letter to J.Crew to get them to bring them back! I’m sure they love fan mail!

Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.

Did you guys know that you’re not a true style blogger unless you make that Devil Wears Prada joke once every spring. It’s true!

They also take away your membership card if you don’t say the phrase “pop of color” or “must-have piece” once every 10 posts.

So consider me safe for another few posts or so. Thank goodness.

ps. This Loft blouse is putting in some work! I love how it has paired equally well with black (see this post here) and with navy in today’s post!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • I am a firm believer in (most) J.Crew style philosophies and apparel pieces. I’m also a firm believer that you can never own too many stripes. So when J.Crew created their own holiday for today (aka National Stripes Day), of course I HAD to participate.
  • And I just love those made-up holidays, because who really needs another excuse to eat more chocolate chip cookies, share cute pictures of my dog, or wear my favorite pattern? The more the merrier!
  • This weekend, I am celebrating that my mom’s surgery went perfect (best outcomes allllll around), and she is recovering like a champ. Thank you all again for your well wishes and prayers. They worked (and were very much appreciated)! ❤
