A forgotten floral dress

| |






August 21, 2010


Dress: Jaloux (Nordstrom Rack)
Shoes: Banana Republic
Necklace: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Nordstrom)
Ring: BCBG Max Azria
Belt: Forever 21 (came with this skirt)
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Nordstrom)

Moving is just not enjoyable although knowing that a life on the beach with no real responsibility awaits me once the move is over definitely makes it easier. While packing is mostly an annoying but necessary evil, I have to say that I do enjoy the little surprises I inevitably find. I keep everything so my trips down memory lane might be a little more detailed than most. I love how the sight of something as small as a forgotten ferry ticket or postcard brings me back to a very precise moment in time. Going through bins and bins of clothes has been horrifying at times, but I’ve also found quite a few items, like this dress, that I will happily bring back.

I love the draped sleeves of this dress, but the shape of the rest of it is hideous (at least on me) without a belt. I love when a skirt comes with a belt I actually like, and I knew when I bought this skirt that I would wear the belt much more than I’d wear the skirt. I really like the colors in this dress and decided to add a bit more with this bold necklace, as well as my poppy colored bag, which matched too perfectly not wear. Saturday night brought cool temperatures that made it feel like fall is just around the corner, and the rich colors in this look perfectly matched the weather.
