Glisten and learn

Dress: Ariella, NYC;
Printed scarf: thrifted;
Shoes: Zigi Soho;
Carpet saddle bag: thrifted.
Photos by me.
How I've worn this dress before: here.

The little field is growing again! The park maintenance people pulled all the crops last month, and now the little stalks are creeping back up at about 1 1/2 feet high. I saw them and felt a little surge of joy, like I was watching children grow up or something. I'm such a total sap sometimes, and over little things like growing vegetation.

Here's what I wore to trivia Tuesday night.  I will probably find a way to wear this dress at least once a week, which is what I did last summer. It's incredibly lightweight, which means I can sweat (ahem, I mean, glisten) as much as possible and still not appear totally sloppy. And the color is so pretty and customizable for accessories. I really love how vibrant the colors in these photos turned out, too.

Happy Wednesday!

  10. yes, we are southern, we definitely glisten. ;) although, in this heat, i am definitely crossing the line into sweating. holy crapola! love this dress on you - so flattering shape-wise and of course the color is gorge.
