Marianne: Black, White, and Red all over

Okay folks, I am nursing an ear infection, because I am 4 years old, and I look like hell from the neck up. I refuse to even look at the camera. Let's just post this little outfit, shall we?

Because I actually like this outfit. I feel pulled together and less pudgey than usual.

But can we just call this one "Tired"? Because...yeah.

Close up detail of my favorite shoes in the dirty changing room mirror, which are looking a little worse for wear. Sadness.
jacket: Dahlia
jeans: Hudson
necklace: "Tree of Life" from Diana Warner
top: I-can't-remember-the-brand from anthropologie
shoes: Office UK
So yes, I am obviously in the Old Navy changing room in these pictures. Which explains the lovely pallor from the overhead lights. But regardless, I had about 20 minutes and was inspired by Adrien to go try on some dresses. NO NO NO. This dress is a darling print and I love the pleated detail on the bust, but god is it ever unflattering. NO.

Ah, that's more like it. Yes, I am copying Adrien, and hell yes, I bought this. I also bought it in the teal colorway, which I'm not entirely sold on. This dress is nearly too short in the waist and length but I felt pretty and I am clinging to that feeling.

This however, did not make me feel pretty in the least.


  1. Dress twins! And your outfit today is so great I want to go home and change.

  2. Love the black and white jacket.

  3. Love the striped dress and red shoes. You're ready for Paris. :)
