Spring Green


Dress // Bag // Shoes, old (similar) // Ring, sold out (similar here and here) // Earrings, sold out (similar) // Sunglasses // Nail color: Essie in Fashion Playground

As you can see in the photos, my neck of the woods is in full bloom. There's a good reason everyone buys cut flowers for their tables all winter. Having flowers around is the most effective mood booster. I think my outfit sort of blends with all the greenery and pink blossoms around.

This dress has been one of my favorite transition pieces of all time. I think I've worn it at least three times even though I've only had it for a couple of weeks. At $28 and free shipping from Nordstrom you can't beat it. I also love that it's machine washable because I absolutely despise taking clothes to the dry cleaner, although now I do it diligently when a tag says dry clean only. I've ruined clothes in the past by being stubborn and trying to wash things with dry clean only instructions. It makes me avoid wearing my dry clean only clothes because I feel like I'm adding to the price of the garment every time I wear it! Anyone have any dry clean alternatives that have worked for you? Share in the comments.

  1. The colour suits you great!!!lovely style!!!

  2. To extend the number of times I can wear my clothes between dry cleaning, I’ll bring them home and use the steam refresh setting on my mom’s dryer. I’ve done it with everything from silk blouses to sweaters, and although it’s not ideal for removing stains, it’s great for delaying the amount of time before I have to visit the dry cleaners. I also go to a cleaner that does organic dry cleaning, which I’m sure just contributes to the cost, but it’s conveniently located so c’vest la vie.
