Hey Babes!
I'm happy to report that I've finally made it safely back to the States after a series of unexpected events on the route home from Costa Rica 😥More to come on that later...
One of the things that I had on my to-do list was to go through my wardrobe and pull out items to donate/give away this month. I try to do this at least every other month, as my closet is housed in a limited space (I live in a loft), and it is necessary to prune what items I retain from working with brands. Add to that a healthy habit of retail therapy, and well - you get the picture😊 Doing this regularly also affords me the opportunity to identify previously purchased items that I may have forgotten about and or don't get their fair share in the spotlight. Today's post features one such item, a beautiful white dress (by Eliza J.) with laser cut lace overlay. I snagged it from Nordstrom last summer, on sale. I've worn it a couple of times, but not nearly enough. That will change this summer 😉 For an afternoon out, I decided to pair it with white accessories and a rattan purse that I often convert into a clutch. Because I always NEED at least one pop of color, I swiped on a new favorite pink lip stain along with pink statement hoops.
I'm looking forward to styling this dress next with black!
Until next time,
Xx
