Chinese lanterns

Outfit Details:
American Rag lantern print dress: Macy's
Dream of the Crop Cardigan in Mint: ModCloth
Necklace: Forever 21
White flats: ASOS
Belt: ASOS





I think this may be the first outfit post in which everything I'm wearing is long gone on the website from which I purchased it!  I bought this dress last year for Steven's and my trip to Montauk, and I just love the print!  It was actually a little big on me at the time, but since I've gained back a bit of weight since then, it fits better now.  I guess that's kind of the silver lining to the situation.









This is also one of the few times where I have actually mastered the sock/donut bun technique -- and on the first try of the day, no less!  Usually it ends with me being very frustrated and having a bad hair day, but it actually worked this time!  It's the small things.





Hope your Sunday is sunny and bright!  And HOW is it September 1st today?!  Eek!
