Fashionable Librarian.

I call this dress my fashion-y librarian dress. It’s all prim and proper (knee length, tie-neck) but it’s also so fun and whimsical (heart print, sweater back) at the same time. It’s pretty much the best. Note: you don’t wear this dress on a date. It’s 1000% a girl’s dress, meant for fun girly dinners and brunches.

Stepping It Up.

I mentioned it earlier this week, but right now for me, events season has kicked in full swing. This past week, I had four dinners and parties all in a row. So much fun, but not exactly conducive to being healthy and staying in shape. I’ve talked about it before, but I’ve been working really hard to stay in shape.

The Perfect Holiday Party Gift…

Annnd Thursday! This week has been a busy one, with holiday events and parties every single evening. Tonight’s the last of ’em for the week… I’m going to the Fresh Air Fund gala with my friend Molly, who is visiting me from Houston this week! I’m excited – it’s a masquerade ball and we’ve been agonizing over our masks for weeks.

Little (Blue) Dress.

This little blue dress makes me want to twirl. The print is so fun, and it pairs so nicely with boots + tights. Right now it feels like long-sleeved printed dresses + boots are my fail-safe uniform. If I have a meeting or an event and I don’t know what to wear, this is what I usually put on (the dress from this post is very similar, and it’s another favorite.)

Live Colorfully.

My personal style mantra is to wear the things that make me happy. As much as I love a great all black outfit, or a super flattering fit and flare dress, if it doesn’t sing to me, I won’t buy it. And I’ve always gravitated to pretty floral prints, bright stripes, and patterns like polka dots and hearts.

Otte Cashmere Giveaway. (Closed)
