I fully realize that I look like a walking winter holiday, and I don't care in the slightest.  Yesterday's weather was unseasonably warm for the first day of October, so even though I'd intended to style this with a sweater over it, I ditched the idea when I realized how comfortable I was without one.  I figured that if the weather can be totally inappropriate for the season, then so can my outfit.  I never ended up wearing this dress last winter (I'm honestly not sure why), but I'll be sure to make good use of it this year.  I think the dress is aptly named (obviously, it's a nod to Little Orphan Annie), and I just love this collar.  I almost wish it were a softer color though... a periwinkle version would be so pretty, don't you think?  It's such a Christmas-y/Valentine-y red, which makes it look a little ridiculous when worn any other time.  But I'm sort of embracing that, I think.

Last week and this one have been absolutely insane.  I feel like my life is one endless rehearsal (probably because it kind of IS).  I'm exhausted, but not totally in a bad way.  I do feel badly that I'm so behind on reading and commenting on other blogs, so I need to find some time to do that, as well as time to devote to actually getting ahead on my own blogging... along with doing the literal mountain of laundry that's been piling up AND cleaning my disaster area of a room AND memorizing my lines for two shows.  There simply aren't enough hours in the day.  But really, what else is new?

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. You look stunning in this dress, Sammi!

  2. Sammi, you look stunning here! I always think you look your best in bright colors and pretty lipstick. In a way I'm quite glad you're exaused--I think right now it's good for your mind to be busy on something else!

    I'm so so sorry my comments have been slow. I've been ridiculously busy with Midterms!

  3. Ah, cute look! Definitely like a grown-up, chic Orphan Annie, I'm glad they named it that.
