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).

Rose Red Midi Dress Featuring Anthropologie and Strathberry




Red Midi Dress | Anthropologie
Gold Lariat | Jewels by Maya
Ruby MC Mini | Strathberry

     This is the gorgeous International Rose Test Garden on the outskirts of Portland. This 4.5 acre garden is home to over 7,000 rose plants and over 550 varietals. Anywhere you go, you smell the light fragrance of roses. If I could, I'd bottle up the air there, and bring it back with me!

     Despite the sea of tourists, the garden is so vast that you can find empty corners that you can have all to yourself. I'm still kicking myself for not packing a picnic blanket, some fruit, and spending the afternoon there.

   This dress was so much fun to wear in a sea of roses. I felt like a Disney princess. Just missing my animal buddies! Despite how overdressed I was, I felt completely comfortable walking around is this BRIGHT red dress amongst a sea of Ts, jeans, and flip flops. I stuck out like a sore thumb, but I didn't regret it :)
