Impossible to Place

I bought this dress in the Fall. It has the best Fall color combo of moody hues and a vintage inspired floral print. Structurally, however, it's very much a summer dress.

My sister has been in town from Canada which doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's a whirlwind of spontaneity and non-stop movement. We adventured to Dayton to visit our mother. On the way, we stopped in Columbus for coffee and ice cream -- which is a necessity after two and a half hours of driving. We explored my mom's town, got donuts in the middle of the night, had brunch in the morning, and walked through all the cute shops. It's such a cute little town that looks like it's straight out of the movies. My sister leaves today and I'm already missin' her.

Now I'm binge watching Bates Motel and about to dive into Gone Girl (the book).




Outfit Details:
Dress: Thrifted
Shoes: Thrifted
Necklace: Kate Spade (bridal party gift)
Belt: Swapped

  5. I started to read "Gone Girl" and didn't like the style in which it was written in and stopped and then later saw the movie later which was also not so hot. I'm hard to please in the book area I suppose. Is your hair getting longer? Love this dress with the tee strap heels, the colors do scream Fall.

  6. I hated the ending of Gone Girl. I think I threw the book across the room. The movie is pretty killer though since you already know how it's going to end and are mentally prepared for it, ha!

    1. It's the most addicting show I've watched in so long. It kind of makes me uncomfortable too -- which I love.

  11. The dress is so damn cute! Such a great length and the pattern is lovely. You look great in it too!

    Sadly, I wasn't a fan of the Gone Girl book - trudged my way though it was quickly as I could. The film however was a totally different kettle of fish for me - totally loved how they adapted the book.
