My husband and I went on a lunch date on this day. It was not cool enough for the sweater, so I wish I had set it down.
I also wish I had more pictures of the dress itself, but my photographer that day was all about the closeups.
I hate closeups.
I love my photographer.
You will just have to bear with me.
Or bare with me. Look at the cute Free People bandeau bra (bralette post can be found here) I simply put over a regular bra for a pretty lace peek-a-boo moment.
I found this dress at my local Nordstrom Rack for a screaming deal. I could not believe nobody had scooped it up (it is sold out. I could only find one size medium of a similar dress. It is on sale for $30 from $148 on Free People here).
The embroidered detail is amazing.
I wanted to pair the dress with some wood accessories. I slipped on this Scrabble Ring for a fun solution. If I was a pumpkin latte kind of gal, I would happily drink it in this dress. This dress screams, “fall!”, with its orange and mustard accents.
Alas, I am allergic to pumpkin. So, I will have to get by just wearing the color.
I will somehow manage to get through the autumn with regular ol’ coffee.
And closeups of my thirty seven year old face.
The secret is
in the sauce a little thing I am grateful to not be allergic to, wine.
Did you notice something amiss in the previous closeup picture? Something that did not look right?
Was it a bit creepy?
Was it my elbow?
I am double jointed in my elbows, so sometimes in pictures like those it looks as though my head should be flipped the other way.
Just give it time.
Halloween is coming up.
With pumpkins. And closeups. And weird elbows.
It’s enough to make a girl’s head spin. What is making your head spin lately? I am definitely craning my head towards this dress. Are you double jointed? I only have it in my elbows and my thumbs…
And my mind.
