calm before the storm


dress: forever21, blue peep-toe flats: topshop, sunglasses: candies

it's been drought-like weather here lately.. and finally there should be some rain coming due to the storm in the gulf, hence the title...

anyways i bought this dress last summer, and it remains one of my favorite casual dresses... because it's just so simple, comfortable and well.. flattering. AND it's a short dress that is still work appropriate for me... oh and sorry the grass is covering up my shoes...

  6. I really like the cinched waist on that dress.

    in reponse to your comment:
    Yes! Definitely invest in a good pair of black skinny jeans, I can't remember life before them...

    @kat: it's a poly/cotton/spandex blend.. so it's very stretchy tee

  12. sorry you should be ^^ I am squinting to see your blue flats (?) ♥ the dress is great but your shoes are showstoppers for the whole look. They don’t kill your dress… complement it where did you get your shoes? Now I have a strong urge to go out and get myself a pair! 
