Pleats and Polka Dots

Once again this week I am enjoying wearing boots. These were the perfect find for $15. I also found this darling dress at H&M, but after I wore it for a bit I realized it was way too big. Luckily, I kept the tag on just in case. I love the retro feel with the polka dots and pleated skirt. I have to admit I was surprised after all this ice cream making (and eating) that I can still find things that are too big-but that may be short lived if I don't behave. I felt like going quirky by adding a pink flower, eBay eyeglasses (worn here), and orange lips-not a look my boyfriend understands, but I am use to that now.

Head over to my Facebook and enter your top three fitness goals. I would love to read them and one person will get featured on the blog with their journey to fitness!

These boots are honestly the perfect touch to such a feminine outfit. My thought was the same when I saw the other boots-included look a few days ago...:)

This dress is beautiful, I love how floaty the fabric is. Adore how you've quirked it up with your glasses and flower.

The dress looks great. I hate when I realize that an item that I love is too big. It happens though. And I'm always happier when I take it back though.
Love the bag too! Such a great size, color and shape!

I vaguely remember your good friend Roxan telling you it was a bit big when you tried it on at the store last weekend... :) It still looks darling though. I was just there tonight and they had smaller sizes.

I love the orange lip! And it looks like it's here to stay.
The Vena Cava show had the models strutting the runway in a matte orange lip and smoky navy eyes. Gorgeous.

This blog is almost an exact copy of the cupcakes and cashmere blog, from your lay out, topics, even you style and photography. The only difference I see is that you are much prettier! Infuse your own personality into this woman!
