There's a place I dream about where the sun never goes out..

This was seriously a gorgeous taffy colored sunset with the perfect amount of wind and no jackets necessary. The roof of our building is beautiful in person. We should go up there more often. My sister and I had a 75 degree day spent taking eBay pictures, taking Birds to the dog park, shopping, getting three coffees, and topping it off with Taco night at Malo (where I did add a black leather jacket..I guess it still is January). What a fantastic day.

I totally love this navy & black bow front(!) maxi dress but it felt kinda like I should throw on some stilettos and head to an awards show until I knotted it up and put my oxfords on to cazsh (short for casual...how do you spell that??) it up.

I also can't believe how much I love this Gold Bear Necklace. A little Bee told me that we will be giving away some amazing things from Sea of Bees next week. EEK!












(Dress- Zara, Oxfords- Asos, Hat- Vintage, Ring- Cleo & Cat, Necklace- c/o Sea of Bees Jewelry, Bag- Borrowed from my sis)


LOVE YOU.
