I know autumn is the time for plaids and rich colors... but who says you can't wear pastels in the fall?? Kate recently sent me this dress as a gift (which was incredibly sweet of her), and I couldn't wait to wear it. It's not a dress that I would necessarily pick out for myself, but the details are incredibly darling, and I ended up really loving it. I decided to pair it with this cropped cardigan -- which I own in like, 6 other colors because I love it so much! -- and the pillbox hat and daisy brooch just jumped out at me. I wish I had a pair of little yellow shoes, though!
This whole week looks like it's going to be rainy and cold(ish), so these sunshine-y photos are making me happy! I have lots of fun stuff coming up here on the blog within the next week, so stay tuned -- especially this Sunday (hint hint)! :) My birthday is next Tuesday, though it honestly doesn't feel like it. Maybe bloggy stuff will help put me in the celebratory spirit.
