love/hate relationship









Love:
- Bold contrasting stripes
- Scoring these insanely comfortable booties for 20 bucks
- This scarf was $3
- The fact that I am accidentally wearing two different colored socks
- This geometric ring I can't seem to take off
- Actually trying the belted scarf-over-dress look
- Bright red nails
- Taking these pictures with my loyal photographer

Hate:
- How quickly this dress stretches out
- My roots -- girlfriend needs a touch up ASAP
- All of my black tights have holes
- The awkward outtakes
- This was my third photo location for this outfit

{H&M dress and scarf; J Crew belt; Dolce Vita booties; random socks; Ellen Tracy and vintage rings}

  1. Such an ideal setting for the pictures, the stairs and the siding emphasize the stripes on the dress so perfectly. Love your bargains!

  2. I have always wanted to try the belt over scarf look and have never got around to it. You might have inspired me to do so! I'm loving your gorgeous locks lately!

  10. I have so many tights with holes in them too! It makes me sad because I always spend too much on them. Shame on me.

    I love the bold stripes, and I don't know but I kind of dig the roots on you.

  11. I have always loved red polish but feel like I can't pull it off. It looks lovely on you. And PS-Bumble and Bumble makes a great colored dry shampoo that is perfect for disguising roots until you can make it to the salon. :)

  14. I really like how your socks and leggings echo the stripes in your outfit! And you're the only one caught on to the general specific=amazing song. But of course, I wouldn't expect anything less from a lady who uses an ugly cassanova lyric as her blog title ;)

  15. Perfectionist! Sometimes I think only we see half the stuff that bothers us. In my last post, I love my coat, but my hair had a mind of it's own that day, and the mind wasn't good.

    What I really love here is the scarf belted over the dress. Always a look I'm hesitant about, but I' might have to give it a whirl!

  26. haha - the awkward outtakes are always so painful... but SO funny. how crazy would it be if everyone posted them instead of normal pictures? anyway, such a steal on those boots (and they're comfortable!) and your scarf as well! i also have holes in almost all of my favorite tights. but what's a girl to do...
