garden party

 Strangely, it's been raining here in Southern California. I am slightly irritated by this sudden shift in weather, but it does give me an excuse to pull out my beloved fall knits. (Autumn is obviously my favorite season!) So, I was so excited to pair this knitted cardigan with this gorgeous dress courtesy of Sugarlips Apparel! It is the perfect summer dress and I am obviously raving about it. My favorite part is the padded corset and the hi-lo hem. The corset gives us, ladies, that extra 'oomph' if you know what I mean and the hi-lo cut is a trend I am definitely following! 

P.S. I just created a Tumblr! Get a taste of my style inspiration here!  
P.P.S Bought an Android, downloaded Instagram, & now, officially addicted!

P.P.S. God, I missed my lovely followers! Sorry for being M.I.A! I have a little treat for you guys soon! 
Stay tuned for a giveaway!


"YOU'RE GOING TO A GARDEN PARTY THIS WEEKEND SO YOU GRAB THIS PADDED CORSET FLORAL PRINTED DRESS WITH A HIGH LOW HEM. AS YOU SMELL THE FRAGRANT AROMA OF THE ROSES AND LILLIES, YOU'LL LOOK AS CHARMING AS A CAMELIA TWIRLING AROUND IN THE FLOWERBEDS"

Dress c/o Sugarlips Apparel H&M Cardigan | Shoes Kobi | Love Culture Bag

That dress is just gorgeous! And I sometimes like an oddball day here and there where the weather acts like another season. It's fun to get a chance to wear something different!
