Morning Blues

[Striped top: Buffalo Exchange; Blue Dress: H&M (old); Scarf: Target; Flats: Zara; Bracelets: J.Crew and flea market; Earrings: Buffalo Exchange]

Promise I'm not doing the fake blogger laugh thing in the second pictures. Mikhail had just told me I look "very morning," and I laughed because I knew it was true. I felt like a zombie and my eyes clearly look half closed and anyone who's ever talked to me before 10 am can attest to the fact that I am barely human at those hours.

I'm covering this dress up with a scarf and t-shirt (my favorite way to create a fake skirt), but it has a fabulous top that slightly tapers in at the shoulders and is covered with this cool geometric clear shapes (great description, right?). I came across it at the sale racks at H&M two summers ago, when I had a tote bag full of fresh fruit from Haymarket. It looked luxe but I was worried it would fall apart at that price point. Two years later and still going strong. I can't wait to show it off in it's full glory in another outfit post.

Stripes, blue, and a shift dress. These are a few of my favorite things! (Said in a sing-songy voice). I showed them off at my first BostonBloggers meetup later that night. It was great fun and I got to see old blogger friends (dating way back to March), bloggers I had only talked to online, and completely new ones. I can't wait till the next event.

  11. OK I admit that sometimes I do the fake blogger laugh...and sometimes it's real. You look super cute in this outfit, regardless of looking morning. (This is why I do my pics all in the evening...to avoid angry morning face). Love the blog, just found it. Now following! Yay.

  13. What a beautiful outfit! I didn't see it was a dress, unless I read your text!
    And I don't think you look like early morning at all!
    I just found your blog, and I really love your style and photos! you are so lucky to have a "personal" photographer ;-) The photos are really good and beautiful, I wish mine would be that good already (but we've at least improved a bit since I started my blog...).
    So I had to follow you (on bloglovin), and I can't wait for your next post! And perhaps you'll find some time to visit my blog too?

    1. Seriously! I think scarves add so much to an outfit. I found a couple lightweight ones to keep wearing through summer.
