Springin' & flingin' in floral & espadrilles.

Hello everyone! I don't know if you were aware of this, but, It's FRIDAY. Our first real weekend in years starts today. Excitement!

So, Nine West sent myself and a bunch of other bloggers espadrilles and accessories to style for their Spring collection! I would normally never wear shoes like this because they make me 6'2". But boy, did I have fun wearing them! I felt like a real Palm Springs summer lady (and that's a good thing in my book). I guess everyone should have a pair of 5" heels in their closet. It really surprised me how easy they were to walk in and...almost...comfortable. Who would have thought??

Once I opened the box, I knew they had to go with a full vintage-y dress. I got this one on a ridiculous sale at Anthropologie. It's absolutely gorgeous with rock solid workmanship. Bonus: I can wear it if I get pregnant someday!

Like usual, I toned it down with a boyish jacket so I could go to a casual dinner with Gabe and my parents but still feel a little fancypants.









(Shoes- Nine West, Bag- Nine West, Bracelet- Nine West, Dress- Anthro)

And I'll leave you with some phone pics I snapped on our way home at twilight the other night. The city can be so beautiful! I love LA.

  16. Love! I bet that dress would reach my knees. ;) I love the soft, oh-so-sixties smudged watercolor print and the way you've pulled it together with the mushroom colored topper and that amazeballs atomic turquoise straw bag. Epic styling.

  64. sometimes it is fun when shoes make you over 6 feet tall. I have a few like that and it is funny because my husband is three inches shorter than me when I'm barefoot and I become an amazon princess with heels on hahaha. it's fun, I think. I'm odd. Anyway these shoes are really pretty and I think your dress is gorgeous!! that's great that you got some free shoes!!
