pep in your step




Dress: Tracy Reese (this chevron dress is pretty darling too); Shoes: Yves Saint Laurent; Purse: Thrifted; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Michael Kors watch, J. Crew chain bracelet

Despite what my current wardrobe might indicate most days (i.e. strong tendency to wear trousers and silk button down collared blouses), I actually have an undeniable soft spot for dresses like the one above, you know, the kind that demand twirling pretty much everywhere you go. OK, not everywhere you go, I'd hate to think of all the buses, not to mention meetings, you would miss because of that, but you get the idea. Obligatory twirling, time and public transportation permitting.

Any special pieces that just put a pep in your step?

  3. I too have a soft spot for lady-like dresses. I'm also a sucker for a floppy hat. Both just add that extra touch to an ensemble that peps my step!

  22. So cute! I'm the same way. I gravitate towards pants on a daily basis, but there is something so sweet and feminine about a dress with a full A line skirt. I just purchased one from Anthropologie and can't wait to wear it tomorrow to a wedding.

  28. One of my favorite outfits you've worn in a while. Too bad it's too cold here on the east coast. Maybe I could wear it with a leather jacket and tights?

  35. The mass cheap gucci handbags media has had a big shock on working the mindset of people. The garishness chanel classic bag and enchant that surrounds renown's sporting fashion hermes bag outlet has connived the populace to adopt similar louis vuitton monogram canvas
    styles for which they have cost loads of money. While many people need to look like the omega speedmaster watches most of them do not have that kind of money to pass on fashion designer dressing and accessories.
