There’s a few F&F; sales going on right now that I wanted to mention, before they end tomorrow (Monday) night! At Baublebar, take 25% using code YESPLEASE with everyday free shipping & returns. My suggestions are their crystal statement necklaces similar to ones I have, this delicate mother-of-pearl pendant which I love, and these adorable crispin earrings that I just got off the waitlist. Please note items marked “BB essentials” are unforutnately excluded.
At Tory Burch, take 30% off $250+ using code FALL16, with free shipping & returns. This is better than their prior F&F; sales which usually started at 20% to 25% off. Reva flats are excluded per usual along with some of their popular Minnie fold-able flats, however the Minnie in these solid & these metallic colors are included! I personally thought these were more comfortable than the Revas. Amongst their bags, my favorite collection is still the Robinson – the large zip tote in saffiano leather is a classic, easy-to-clean option for work and should fit most laptops.
On to my outfit in this post ~ I was actually not sold on either the dress nor the jacket initially, but brought them home to mull over. Sometimes small tweaks and a little styling can make a big difference! The dress is knee length, but I did my old trick of folding excess material over a belt and it instantly looked more balanced with a shorter length. It’s a temporary fix, and I like the dress enough to get it hemmed. It’s actually on clearance online for an awesome price (lower online than in-store) with sizes fully in stock – use code 0040 for free shipping over $40.
This jacket comes in pink or black, and reminds me of one of my old favorites from H&M; but in a lighter weight crepe material. They actually have several similar jackets out but I tried most of them on and liked this the best. The crepe material drapes nicely and the silhouette is clean and elegant. I had the sleeves shortened by my tailor, as well as the length – however I regret hemming the length because it no longer looks as sleek, so would advise against it! The second photo in this post shows the original length, un-altered.
The cotton-blend material of this dress has tiny swiss dots that you only see up close.
These photos were taken at the wedding of our good friends. It was a beautiful end-of-summer day, topped off with a sweet ceremony and amazing New England grub like clam chowder, fresh oysters, and a clambake lobster dinner. My girlfriends and I inadvertently all showed up in soft pink frocks and nude sandals – we’re pretty sure some other guests assumed we were bridesmaids!
One note about this dress is that the ruffles definitely move with the wind! Be sure to wear lipcolor that doesn’t transfer easily, otherwise most of it may end up on the front of your dress ; )
