Even though I’ve already shed some of the holiday weight, this loose dress is still the only thing that feels comfortable. It’s just a bonus that there are cats printed all over it … which some people have mistaken for skulls. I don’t see it, but now it’s basically the dress version of a Rorschach test. Which do you see?
I didn’t intend to create an outfit when I started working on this post, but doesn’t it look like an ideal weekend ensemble? There’s a ton of interesting details on the classic pieces, but a Topshop beanie and a pair of Converse sneakers (available at Treds) keeps it playful.
This is a PR collaboration, but all opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that support Bedknobs & Baubles!
I haven’t shopped at Express since college when I needed a last-minute sparkly top for barhopping. So, you can imagine my surprise when I found the perfect little party dress at the retailer on sale for around $70. The metallic navy material is gorgeous and you know I’m a sucker for a full skirt. With a tuxedo jacket, it’s perfect for the upcoming cocktail awards reception I’m planning at work.
Lately, I’m loving:
- This vintage brass elephant Dave tucked in my Christmas stocking. I’m using it as a ring holder on my dresser. (There are a lot of options on eBay. Don’t be put off by the dingy ones; brass cleaner works wonders.)
- The polka dot clutch I won from Kayu’s Instagram giveaway. Now I’m even more anxious for the weather to warm up. (Today’s forecast has wind chills down to -50 degrees. Days like this make me thankful I don’t own a dog that needs to be walked. You’ll find me snuggled up in piles of blankets with the cat with absolutely no intention of stepping foot outdoors.)
- This tank to wear with these shorts.
If I really had to edit my wishlist for spring and summer, this would be it: simple silhouettes in neutral colors with unexpected accessories. (Although, I’m also itching for a Clover Canyon dress this spring. The bold patterns are just too good.)
