Spring Picnic Outfit at the Eiffel Tower



Lace Black Dress | Eshakti
Jaden Cage Heels | Schutz (available here & here)
Cat Eye Sunglasses | Kate Spade

     I'm going to be honest. My recent hiatus from blogging wasn't exactly...voluntary.

     BUT it was exactly what I needed. I disconnected from social media for a year and reconnected with my life. I realized I was living life through a lens. I needed to rediscover what made me happy, and learn to enjoy it without the pressures of "getting the right shot." (like getting a dog named Chloe haha)

   After awhile, I realized blogging was a big part of my life for a reason. In the past few months, I've travelled to Paris. Bought my first designer bag. Ate a picnic underneath the Eiffel Tower. Listened to live music on the streets of Saint Germain. Rowed a boat at Versailles Palace. So here I am with a new blog post to share these experiences. Consider it my comeback to the blogging world.

   I don't have my equipment anymore so I'm working on getting a new camera, lens, etc. so bear with me during the adjustment period! I'll work to be consistent again and hope you come along for the ride.

   Here's just the first of many posts about Paris. In my next post, I'll tell you a little bit about my recent trip to Paris and my fanatic yet unreasonable love for the city.

Tulle Take 2 // Space 46




Pink Top | Old
Clip Dot Tulle Skirt | Space 46 Boutique
Ruby MC Mini | Strathberry

     Blogger has been a bit temperamental at my office so this is my first chance to write this post!

     I bought this skirt months ago during one of Space 46's sample sales. It is gorgeous and so well made. I thought purchased the polka dots would make this otherwise formal skirt a little more everyday appropriate. I loved twirling in this. I think I have this problem with every skirt I own but it's especially fun in tulle!

   This is from a few months back when we still had snow, and I'm posting it now because I'm trying to trick my mind into thinking it's a lot cooler than it really is aka 100 degrees! I keep staring at the snow in these photos thinking "It's chilly. I'm chilly. Brrrr." FYI, hasn't worked yet, but I'm not losing hope yet!

Blue Blooms Pencil Dress // Brunch




Blue Floral Pencil Dress | Anthropologie
Cat Eye Sunglasses | Kate Spade
Ruby MC Mini | Strathberry

     I also picked this up for my Portland trip. I wore this to brunch the morning after the reception. I wish I had taken photos of the room where we had brunch. It was like the library from Beauty and the Beast! I've already promised myself a mini library in my future house just like that one :)

     I know most people think Anthropologie is expensive, but when they have promotions on sale items, it's totally affordable. This dress is a perfect example. It was originally $168, and currently on sale for $49.95. But but but! With Athropologie's current promotion for an additional 30% off sale items, this dress becomes an affordable $35!

   Anywhos, this dress is well constructed with quality materials (A+). Although it boasts a simple, traditional cut, the open back detail makes it fun for after work situations (plus for those hot days, it gives your back some breathability).
