Pink Liberty

On Sunday, BF and I went out to do some errands (including lunch at IKEA!!!!!), and on the way home, we stopped at Target. BF needed a new windshield wiper. Not wipers, but a single wiper. (He is obsessed with having a clean, streak-free windshield, and is constantly cleaning the inside and the outside windshield.)

I needed something from Target, too, but of course as soon as we got there, I completely forgot what I was looking for. I did, however, bump into the Liberty of London section, so I browsed around a bit. I love florals and prints, so I really wanted to like everything there, but I really only liked this dress. (I was almost tempted by the peacock halter top as well, especially because I just scored a fab pair of J.Crew Juliet heels in peacock!)

This morning when I woke up, there was frost all over the cars and the lawn, but by the time I finished my morning run and packed lunches for the day, it was nice and mild out, so I went with the dress. I added the blazer because I like to have something to cover up my arms. I don't love it with the blazer, but I sit at my desk all day, so no biggie.

The one thing I don't like about the blazer is it attracts...things...to it like no other. I have to do some major lint rolling ALL over it every time I wear it. And there's a LOT of lint on it. Every time!

Here's the dress without the blazer.

Dress: Liberty of London for Target
Blazer: Old Navy
Shoes: Auburn by Dexter from Payless
Watch: Fossil
Nail Polish: Mink Muffs by Essie

Aaaand, a close-up of the shoes. I'm way into my {slightly-out-of-control} shoe collection right now, so for the time being, I'm going to show you a close-up of my shoes every day!

OM goodness! That dress is lovely. The cut on it is perfect for you! The nude shoes are perfect.

Thank you, Simply JCrew! How do you like it?

Thank you, Bianca! Looking at the pictures, I was afraid it might look a bit boxy, so thank you :) I had a pair of hot pink shoes I was thinking of pairing it with, but I didn't feel like finding them that morning, haha!

LOVE the dress. I tried it on in the other color but they didn't have the pink in my size :(

Thanks, Gigi!

Thanks Cate! Did you try it on in the yellow color? They didn't have that one at my Target, but it is so pretty!
