Ah, I think I'm finally coming out of my funk. So much so that I'm starting to look at my closet with a very discerning eye. I'm feeling a wave of change taking over my style - I just haven't quite caught onto it yet. Do you know what I mean? I really want my closet to be filled with special pieces, because those make me happiest. Now, I just need to allow myself to part with the rest.
Last summer's looks were all about flowing dresses and lightweight jersey. This summer, I'm craving so much more - like unique shapes, lots of patterns and slightly richer-looking fabrics. It's amazing the difference a year can make.
It's also amazing the difference 90 degrees can make. For once, I'm not referring to the thermometer - check out the gorgeous glow of these photos, taken last evening about 7:30 facing east.
And check out the difference a mere 90 degree shift can make. These are facing south. I love the silhouetted quality they take on - not great for detail, but check out that sky!
Being a style blog and all, here's a little obligatory commentary on the clothes. I wore this dress so many times throughout the fall, winter and spring. I thought for sure I would be wearing it to pieces this summer, yet I think this is it's first foray this season. But what a debut! This may be one of my favorite outfits! And check out those awesome shoes I got with credit (i.e. FREESIES!) from Gilt Groupe. Does it get any better?
