An Evening Twirl

Cardigan-c/o Shop Mamie, Dress-thrifted from Crossroads Trading Company, Shoes-c/o Lulu's.com, Bag-borrowed Foley and Corina, watch-Michael Kors, Necklace-vintage

I've been sick on the couch all week with my laptop and a cup of tea watching endless reruns of Sex and the City. It's my go-to show when I'm in need of comfort and when I feel like visiting old friends. Inspired by all the throwback dresses the girls wear, I pulled out this pretty number I've had for years. I found it at Crossroads and fell in love with the retro shape and pretty patterns. This dress is as comforting to me as my favorite pair of sweatpants. It's lightweight, easy and always gets compliments. The perfect piece to feel like I'm in my pajamas but look like I'm dressed up.

I couldn't agree more about a perfect dress that is so comfy you feel like you could lounge all day in it. Those are my favorite for summer. I hope you are feeling better ♥

the print on this dress is lovely! i'm sorry to hear you've been sick but a sex and the city marathon always makes me feel better. I feel the same way as you, it's some kind of comfort when you're missing girlfriends.

i wander, i wonder

I love the color of that Foley and Corina! I just bought a Rebecca Minkoff MAB in almost that exact shade. And your dress is absolutely adorable! xoxo Marissa

I have always found myself looking to SATC reruns for sartorial inspiration, you really can't go wrong there :) Your dress is gorgeous, I love the full shape and earthy tones. Comfort and style is always a winner in my book!

I hope you are feeling better, Taylor! The dress is exceptional, I can see why you love it. And of course, comfortability is a plus. I really like how your nail lacquer hue matches the shoulder detail on your cardigan.
