Two of my favorite fashion elements are scalloped edges and gingham print. Both are youthful, fun and nostalgic (which pretty much sums up my aesthetic to a t!). Until now, I hadn't owned a dress that featured both! This sweet dress was one of the pieces from the ModCloth + A Beautiful Mess collaboration, which I really loved (I still have my eyes peeled for this dress, in fact!). Kate sent me a gigantic package of clothes in a closet clean-out, and this was one of the dresses I was delighted to find inside. It's a different silhouette from what I normally wear, but it's really adorable -- and work-appropriate, which was fortunate, as I had to run off to the box office after snapping these photos!
Although I worked most of Saturday, I had a really nice Sunday. I spent the day doing some shopping with my mom and visited with my friend, Wayne. I'm not ready for snow yet (though we're supposed to be hit with a polar vortex in a few days -- eek!), but I am getting into the holiday spirit. Finding gifts for people I love is one of my favorite things. I have some fun posts and collaborations in the works over the next couple of months. Oh, and I lost almost 3 pounds this past week! I'm feeling very encouraged at the moment. :)
