What I'm Wearing Today

I do not wear white. I'm already super pale and I don't think white does anything for me. My one exception is Summer dresses. There's something so pretty and sweet and perfect about a white sundress in the Summer. I own at least six white summer dresses and find I am still drawn to them. I have to remind myself that there are really only so many white dresses a girl can wear. Ironically if and when I get married I have absolutely no plans to wear white.

Today I am wearing this little number from Free People. It's called the Paisley Necklace Dress and is so amazingly flattering and comfortable I had to own it in three colors. The details are gorgeous and give it a bit of a Moroccan feel. There's lots of beading and sequins going on at the neckline but it doesn't feel tacky or young or overdone. The hem has a metallic lace ribbon that I constantly gets comments on.

I'm wearing this dress with a very light cardigan, a gold owl ring, and these shoes.

Note: I am not a model and that is not me. It's a photo from the Free People site. I am still trying to figure out a good way to photograph clothing I own.


  1. I too love white dresses when the weather is sunny and hot. Sadly, I own only two because the other ones are other colors... but I loved the Morocco effect this one has. Absolutely gorgeous!

  2. I'm in love with your shoes. Actually, I'm in love with the whole outfit.
    I usually just stand in front of a mirror and take a picture of my reflection. It usually takes a couple of tries, but turns out decent.

  3. Bambooska, colors are fun too! I love colors.

    Urban Cowgirl, those shoes are a complete pain to get on because the strap is super tiny but I love them as well. I almost didn't get them because I didn't think I really needed another sparkly shoe or another sandal but I find I wear them a lot. Today as well.
