Calm Before

This used to be my favorite dress. The fit, the shape, and the color were pretty much what four years ago Jessica loved. I've long since stopped enjoying strapless dresses and such bold colors. I have, however, been trying really hard to make the most of my wardrobe and thus I pulled this out. It originally came with straps and I wish that I hadn't lost them, but alas...I'll do my best not to complain.

The days are still blistering hot with pretty chilly evenings. Which is confusing my body, but at least I can dress summer and fall all in one day, right?

I had a busy weekend full of an editorial meeting, helping my sister adopt her dream cat, large scale swap planning (three months in the works!), idea hashing, and general creating. Damn, I'm tired just thinking about it.





Outfit Details:
Dress/Hat/Belt: Forever 21 (spanning many years / locations)
Shoes: Payless
Necklace: C/O Onenecklace
Glasses: C/O Firmoo

  1. I love the dress! It's funny how our taste and style changes as we mature and grow as people. It looks amazing non the less. You go girl!

    1. It is so funny, Taylor! I'm always like "I wore that?" or "Why don't I wear that?" I guess they call this evolution?

  3. It is always interesting to me to see what people used to like and how they like it now. That definitely happens with me too. I still aesthetically like a lot of posts from three-four years ago, but am not sure I'd wear the outfits today.

    1. That is EXACTLY how I feel. Like, I don't hate them, but would I wear them now? Probably not. I guess that's the beauty of having a style blog.

  4. It's really something how our style seems to evolve over time. If it matters, you still look amazing in the dress! Love the black accessories too!

  5. What a cute dress! It's really difficult to get full use of a wardrobe you're not 100% feeling anymore. Your style is always so awesome.

    1. You're too nice, Crissy! I don't always feel that way so it's nice to hear it sometimes!

  6. Such a pretty dress, the print is stunning!
    Wow, that sure does sound like a busy weekend! Hope you manage to get everything done and even a tiny little rest at the end of it all :)
