Welcome Back

IMG_7078-1edit

Hello there! So, hopefully I'm back from my hiatus. My mother's surgery went well (thanks for all the well wishes!) and I've spent most of the weekend running errands and just doing whatever she needs. Needless to say, things have been quite busy and I am exhausted. My running around coupled with this ridiculous heat wave New York is experiencing has led my weekend style to be relaxed and simple. I got this striped dress from Forever 21 a while ago and it has been my go to dress since I got it. It's comfortable but doesn't feel too lazy. Hence, it's exactly what I need it to be.

Oh, and big thanks to Bethany of Bunny Picnic for being a pal and doing a guest post while I was gone! That bow tutorial was too cute, right?

Dress: Forever 21
Jacket: Salvation Army
Shoes: Urban Outfitters

  8. Hello D: Glad to hear that all is well. I live the subtle little pop of color in that dress. I could only wish we had a heat wave here. It's still rainy and gross.

  11. Welcome back, and hope the recovery process is going well. What are you even doing wearing a jacket in a heatwave? I feel you, it's pretty hot in Barcelona at the moment too... but I'm loving it after the wind and rain in England!

I love how you match your stripped dress with the denim jacket, those lovely shoes and pretty sunglasses! And the fact that the belt from the dress is red is even better!
