Dress: J.Crew (just reduced from $80 to $39!!) // Shoes: Zara (old, but similar here, here, and here) // Purse: Kate Spade (old, but similar here here, here) // Watch: Anne Klein–on sale! (also love this one and this one) // White oxford: Ralph Lauren (get the little boy’s version, it’s cheaper!)
I’m officially back from Ireland! I can’t believe how fast it went! We were so sad to come home, but desperately missed ice and breakfast (two things they aren’t really into in Europe). Luckily, Chicago is always a great city to return home to!
If you weren’t following along on Instagram, be sure to check out the snaps I shared on my trip! (Plenty more photos coming soon!)
Now I’m crossing my fingers that recovering from a week off isn’t as stressful as it was cramming two weeks of work into one right before I left, but I guess only time will tell! 😉
Now, onto today’s post! I’ve been like, really into ribbons lately. Mostly tying them in my hair (which came in really handy in Ireland, where the water turned my hair into a mysterious poodle texture that I’ve never experienced previously in life) but I also love the look of one tied around the neck instead of a necklace (which looks especially adorable with an oxford–another travel staple of mine over the past week!) Which now I notice has been worn quite often lately on the blog, sorry about that!
I also got a request to style an outfit with tights awhile back, which I rarely ever do, but love the look of tights with these heels, which make this casual dress (on MAJOR sale, by the way!) a little more feminine and girly.
In other news–what have I missed while I was gone? Please fill me in! I feel so out of the loop.
I hope everyone has a great start to their week!
