Here’s my take on the dress Marlena styled a few days ago! At Here Pretty Kitty we love layers and I decided to go for an old Jessi classic: throw a sweater on over a dress! While a cardigan over a dress is very practical it’s also very obvious, and I wanted to mix things up a bit! I don’t have a lot of yellow in my wardrobe but I noticed the yellow in this super cute Lularoe dress matched pretty perfectly with this great vintage sweater I so often forget about. A match made in heaven! This dress is SO comfortable and I really love the length. Trust me, I have plenty of short skirts and dresses in my closet, so the extra booty coverage is a welcome change! I actually can’t wait to bust this dress out on a beautiful spring day with sandals and bare arms. BUT none of that is happening in February in Iowa.
I’m a sucker for matching a brown belt with brown shoes, but took a detour from my usual brown booties for these wooden heels. Honestly guys, they are much easier to walk in than it looks!
Not to be cheesy, but I think all I’m missing from this yellow look is a little sunshine, amiright?!! To put a positive spin on the dreary, cold days we’ve been having I’m currently weighing which of my favorite indoor activities to partake in: cat cuddling, bad reality tv time, snacking, napping…. Everything?!
Be sure to check back because we’ve got a lot happening on the blog this week, including celebrating our 2nd blogiversary. Yay!!
So last week we shipped off Charlie to my parents house for the week and while we of course missed him, it was so awesome! We tried to make the most of it. Highlights from our first Sunday alone (and yes I realize this list is totally pathetic to most people but we were living the dream!):
• Stayed in bed until 9 a.m.!
• Had a luxurious morning at a local coffee shop drinking lattes and pretending to read the paper.
• Went out for a late brunch at a semi non-kid friendly spot
• Spent the afternoon lounging and putting together IKEA furniture (with no arguing!)
• Met my BFF Mindy’s new baby, Rafa
The rest of the week was filled with happy hours, a double date with Jessi and John, 30 extra minutes to sleep in the morning, and so much more!
I definitely checked out on my environment this time around didn’t I?! Chain link fence = hot mess
Have you kitties ever heard of Lularoe? My friend Kate brought over a bunch of their clothes over one lovely evening. It was the best! Everything they offer is both super adorable and super comfy. I got this dress in two different patterns. You should definitely go like Kate’s page on Facebook because she’s always posting great stuff from them, plus discount codes and stuff!
I love pairing a collared shirt under a dress, and this one works really well for that. I’ve been super into scarf ties lately. The winter, for me, can get oh-so-dreary so I always like figuring out ways to add color. I’d love hear your ideas in that department!
