After coming down with a case of the icks, I thought I opt for one of my favorite dresses and take the extra step to curl my hair {it adds pizazz, no?}. I may not physically feel great, but at least I feel good in what I'm wearing. Plus I'm sporting a new lipstick so take that you silly sickness!

Also, looking at these photos it’s starting to look more and more like fall! {Yes, that’s an exclamation of excitement, rather than just an exclamation that indicates I’m yelling} It’s like the weather gods heard my inner plea for fall-like weather as I flipped through the latest J. Crew catalog last night. I mean after all those bold hues and wool fabrics…and COATS. Oh my gah, coats galore! {now that’s a yelling exclamation point} How could I not dream of autumn weather and falling leaves? Maybe if I think hard enough about the lottery maybe I can get the money gods on my side. Stay tuned.

Pin It!

  2. Utterly amazing dress.  The pattern, the shape, the color--totally perfect on you.

    I react to sickness (and all-nighters) the same way, especially when I have to go to work.  It's the full-nines of lipstick and heels and hair and cute outfit.  If I feel like crap, I might as well look good.

  8. This dress is awesome. Simple awesome dresses are the perfect solution to getting dresses on 'days that I do not feel well'. Your hair looks super sweet too. Love the curls.

  9. That is great dress- I totally think that taking time to look good on the outside, helps you conquer feeling icky on the inside (most times!). Its a great way to not let a cold/flu/wrong-side-of-the-bed day defeat you.

  11. While you're at it, think of me winning the lotto too.  It was just a suggestion . . .

    As always, you have the world's best hair.  Love your pick me up dress!

  12. Smart move! Doesn't a great look always make you feel a little better? Normally a big all-over print intimidates me when I see it on the hanger, but you're convincing me that it can be VERY flattering and slimming. I'm going to try that today. You've inspired me. :)

  18. Um...that dress is amazing, and this is such a great look! I would never guess you were feeling under the weather from the looks of it. Lipstick is amazing, no?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think that DOES count!  Woah! What other magical powers do you have?!?!

  25. Your hair looks great and I'm loving the print on that dress!  I'm so, so ready for fall to get here too.  It was 99 degrees here yesterday, still in the 90s today. All I want is to be able to layer, but anything more than a breezy dress is unbearable! So, I hope the weather gods (and money, too!) get on our side soon!

  29. You do?! How funny! Maybe we can plan a weekend get together sometime in the fall. Maybe it can be my fall break from grad school :)

  30. Thanks Alli! It creeped back up to the 90s here again. Crossing my fingers for some prolonged cooler weather some time soon.

    Oh, and would you send me some fall? I will gladly accept it by email, text message, or even snail mail. Thanks!

  33. I love this dress so, so much. Houndstooth is always a favorite of mine but I absolutely really love how the print of it gets bigger and bigger on it. So neat!
