hands down.






Outfit Details:
Karen Walker dress - Anthropologie (p.s. they're having a big summer sale online and in stores right now)
striped shirt - J.Crew factory outlet
Seychelles Ampersand heels (on sale for $49.50!)
Zac Posen x Illesteva cat eye sunglasses
Cambridge Satchel (c/o the company - mine is old, so I linked to the beautiful mint green version)
DIY flower clip
MAC Captive lipstick

First things first: I am not really sure why my hands look so creepy in the close up photo - I've been trying to figure that out for the past few minutes. My hands aren't all that pretty anyway, but they don't usually look like creepy witch hands. Oddly enough, when I was little, my mom used to tell me I had beautiful hands and could be a hand model (really, mom?!). I believed her and truly thought that was a possibility, until my little sister got angry with me and scratched them so hard they bled. I still have scars on my hands from that, and my hypothetical hand modeling career went down the toilet. Oh, the woes of a young girl with weird, weird dreams. 


Now that I've gone on this strange rant about hands, let's talk about the dress. I found it super on sale at Anthropologie and picked it up right before Bobby and I went to North Carolina. They always have the best sales at the one in Meatpacking: sales so great, they make me forget about my crushed hand modeling dreams...if only for a moment. Did I mention it has pockets?

  16. Oh my gosh your hands do not look creepy! I'm sorry you can't be a hand model though, I often think about the lives of hand models when I cut myself.

  22. I'm completely obsessed with that satchel and have been wanting one for ages. Not so sure about the price of it though. And Pockets are a must for crushed hand model dreams.

  27. Lol. I think it's funny the little things that we as bloggers notice about ourselves in outfit posts. As I scrolled through your photos I didn't think your hands looked weird at all! I've done the same thing though ("Why do my knees look so weird in these pics??"). You look lovely as always.
