Sometimes a dress pops out at you and you completely forgot you had it. That’s what this awesome houndstooth dress did to me. I bought it a few years ago to wear to an event as part of a larger wedding weekend, and I think I subconsciously consigned it to “event dress”. I’ve only worn it a few times, and I think I can name them all!
However, last week I took to my closet, mercilessly and brutally throwing items into piles—donation for things that didn’t fit or weren’t really my style, that someone else could wear; and trash for things that were completely beyond repair. I rediscovered this dress hiding with my other cocktail dresses, and decided to wear it once more before the weather warmed up too much for it.
I thought I’d lost these earrings forever! I recently found them as I did some reorganizing in my apartment. As I flipped through my bags and purses for any loose change, these flew out at me. So happy!
It was raining when I took these photos, and it rained most of the day, but I was determined to get back into the blogging habit, so here we are. It was damp and chilly enough that tights were a good outfit choice, but I’m not sure how much more wear they will get until falls comes around again. And these shoes! I may have finally found the perfect mary jane: good fit, adequate support, decent heel height, and just the right amount of grip on the soles.
