Despite how put together these photos may be (we took ’em in London), I’m a bit of a hot mess at the time. I’m going to write a more personal post this week (I’ve been working on it but can’t seem to hit publish), but everything is just a little crazy right now. Boy drama, family drama… both my dad and my grandmother in the hospital at the same time (both are doing really well right now), and then the loss of our family cat. I was in Boston Thurs-Sat doing family things, and now I’m finally back in the city, though today will be spent visiting with my grandmother. A lot going on, but things are definitely getting better!

I bought this dress at Selfridge’s during my trip to London. Of course, despite being listed as a new arrival it doesn’t seem to be online but I linked to some similar ones below. I’ll be sure to update the post should anything change. Regardless of that, it’s a new favorite. I love it with a black bra as pictured but it would also be great over a white tee or turtleneck.

Outfit Details: Sandro Dress (obsessed with this and this one, too) // Saint Laurent Tribute Sandals // Chanel Purse // BaubleBar Earrings (c/o)

These BaubleBar earrings are the most amazing, and also crazy affordable. One perk of having worked there for so long is going back to visit all the time… and last time, they gave me these. I’m pretty sure they will sell out soon, so if you love ’em, snap ’em up fast!!!

    So sorry to hear about your family’s loss. Pets are definitely family members.

    Outfit wise: LOVE the pop of blue, I usually go with a pop of red/coral, but after seeing this I must try some blue in my wardrobe!

    Sorry you are going through some tough times and for the loss of your kitty. I’ll be praying for you. You look wonderful. I love this outfit. Not sure I could pull off those earrings, but they sure are pretty. These photos make me want to visit London even more.

    Oh wow, these tassel earrings are such a statement and “uplifting” addition to an outfit.
    This dress is such a great piece and suits you perfectly. I’m sorry to read about the difficulties that you’ve been facing… It’s not easy to deal with so many things at once but if it gives you any “comfort”, do know that you’re not the only one going through this kind of situation and that even when it feels like as if you’re tired to go on and can’t seem to get a hold of anything, keep on going and believe that everything will work out in the end. 🙂

    I’m so glad your dad and grandmother are on the mend. I lost my dear big sister suddenly just fours days before Christmas. Cherish the time you have with your loved ones. We don’t know how much of it we have. I still read your blog every morning, it feels good to have a ritual and some sense of normalcy. I’m so glad I recently adopted a cat, it’s a comfort to have her, sorry to hear the loss of yours.

    Thinking of you and your family <3 My mom was diagnosed with cancer just before Thanksgiving, which was downright terrifying, as she's my best friend. Big hugs to all of you.
