Clutch / Crossbody Bag: H&M; Style# 568146 Watch: Michael Kors Jet Set
11-12mm pearl studs: bought here for $5 (make sure to ask for white)
Longtime readers may remember this dress. I spent $8 on two striped tees from H&M;, then slaved over my sewing machine to recreate this little number as seen on Tiffany (which at $267, was out of my price range for a casual shift). Over one year later, this is still hands-down my favorite casual dress!
Nick was inspired by my watch shopping and brought out his “vintage” Timex. JCrew is bringing vintage-styled Timex back into style, but why pay $200 when you can just dig out your old watch from high school? Fruits of my bargain-hunting labor = J.Crew tee ($7) + Chambray shorts ($7) + Keds sneakers ($24).
A few weeks ago we tried this Portuguese restaurant called The Neighborhood. Great brunch value, good ethnic variety, and bottomless tea for me and coffee for Nick. Even early in the morning, the wait was long so we snapped photos to kill time. And the slouchy dress makes an appearance yet again…
