      a few weeks back i was feeling a total lack of inspiration.  it was day after day of feeling as though i had nothing to wear in a closet filled to the brim.  since swapping has become the new shopping i thought it might be fun to swap a few items with my fashion soulmate, kate, who lives in seattle.  kate and i went to grad school together and before we were friends we were both envious of one another's style.  i miss kate beyond words and thought this would be a great way to reconnect and get some new inspiration.  we each shipped a box to the other coast and i can't wait to wear each of the pieces that kate sent along.
    this dress was the first thing i tried on when i received my package.  it is the perfect dress for a monday; drapey, soft and bright.  i think it would be perfect for warm weather, but to make it appropriate for our current cold spring slump i thought i'd pair it with black.  i hope to style this up one more time before i have to part with these items and send a new round to seattle. 


  1. It looks gorgeous on you!!! I've worn 3 total pieces of yours so far...One was the flowery blue dress, which I took on a late afternoon walk around Green Lake...I'm saving the white maxi dress for Palm Springs this Saturday. Love you!!
