No Names

I bought this dress when I was in Columbus last weekend and then proceeded to wear it for the day. There's no shame in loving a dress so much that you change in the Jeni's parking lot, right? Okay, well I did that anyways. My sister took me to this amazing second hand/vintage store in Columbus called Rag-O-Rama and I wanted everything. I settled on two dresses, but seriously the place was amazing. And Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams is pretty much the most wonderful thing about Columbus (sure, there's one deep into the depths of the parts of Cleveland I never visit, but it's not the same). If you aren't familiar, Jeni's is a local ice cream shop that makes every ice cream/frozen yogurt/treat from scratch. Starting with grass-grazed Ohio cream, local produce, carefully sourced ingredients -- and the flavors are unlike anything you've ever had. Be warned, once you've had a taste of Jeni's, no other ice cream will compare.

We explored the city, adventured in various coffee shops, shopped a bit, visited my friend while she worked, and eventually ended up at a show. Because after all, you know I went to Columbus for music. I went to see the lovely Saintseneca who is actually from Columbus and I'm more than a little obsessed. We woke up and visited a Columbus breakfast must: Katalina's. Another place that specializes in local produce and creating actual food.

Also this is one of the new hats my sister made me. I love the color and only wish it were more slouchy. Apparently she's not a fan of that look on me? Whatever, pink forever. She was also kind enough to take these photos. It's truly hard to explain how to take an outfit shot. The right distance, the right zoom, the right angle...there is definitely a learning curve. But hey, she got me to smile because she's kind of the funniest person I know.

  2. Haha! I've totally changed in parking lots before...it's an art. When you find something you love, why not! I really love the dress, the print is such a beautiful blue and it pairs so well with your studded flats.
    That ice cream sounds incredible! I wish more companies realized the importance of using real ingredients instead of man made crap that's in most foods. Good for her!

    1. I know, it's sad how few use real ingredients. Kind of scary!

  3. I have definitely changed in parking lots before, usually it's because I didn't dress appropriately for the weather and was forced to purchase something while out. Yours is a much funner reason, that dress is awesome and loving the pink hat!

    1. That was definitely part of it too. I wore a strapless dress & those are annoying.

  6. Aw, I love that first picture of you! So cute. This dress is awesome and such a great "Jessica" piece. And of course the beanie is amazing. I feel like you'll get a ton of use out of it.

    This makes me want to come visit you and explore Ohio with you even more than I already did!
