Marianne: A little shopping, a lot of photos.

So, I kind of fell off the map there for a while, didn't I? I've been...busy. First we went to the beach, and I don't really get dressed at the beach. Oh! Here I am in some clothes! The striped French Connection dress I've worn a million times:

Yay for stripes!
The beach was wonderful. Then we drove home and I left the next day for New York. And I actually did a great job of packing and should really try to recreate the outfits I wore there. Here is one of them, a crazypants Tibi dress that I found for 18 whole dollars at the magic consignment store (here's another bold patterned Tibi dress on sale):

I was in New York for work and was massively overbooked, so I didn't really do much in the way of shopping. Tragic, I know. However, my hotel was right across the street from the lovely Chelsea Market, which houses a huge anthropologie. Now, I know, we poke a lot of fun at anthro, but I found this dress and fell in love with it. You should check out the back, which is lovely and I failed to get a picture of.
I also got the trendiest manicure of my life.
So, what have you been up to? Do you think I can wear this dress into the fall? Because it's so ridiculously comfortable that I want to wear it all the time.

dress: Sky Trails Maxi (this pattern is sold out but it's still available in a bunch of other cute patterns. On sale!)
shoes: DV by Dolce Vita Caspian Sandal
bag: Su-Shi Old Skool Mini
leather tassel: Freshly Picked
ring: Miju and You


  1. So many lovely smiles!! The patterned maxi looks divine, and my new life goal is to carry that purse...

  2. My goodness! How ridiculously cute is your little girl!
