How was your weekend? B and I were pretty busy organizing the house and braving the dreaded Home Depot (hopefully for the last time). However, I did manage to find some time to do a little gardening, which I'm very excited about. I felt like Mathilda in "The Professional," planting my long-suffering windowsill plant and finally allowing it to put down roots. Your chances of survival are much better here, little friend.

Also managed to squeeze in a little R&R, and cocktails, too. This dress was made for porch-sittin'.

vintage dress
7 for All Mankind jacket
bag from some random boutique
vintage bangles
Miu Miu carved heels

  1. Haha! That is the best movie ever. I'm so glad you are settling in. Although, if I never set foot in a Lowe's or Home Depot it will be too soon.

    Your dress is precious, just a perfect vintage treasure. And it looks hot with the heels!!

  5. Ha, poor plant, let it live free now! You always look so fresh in little dresses, and the muted floral suits you perfectly. I love how your hair is just the tinsiest bit longer!

  37. I've always wanted to garden. Unfortunately, it's not too conducive to city living (as I'm sure you're aware) and I don't think I have much of a green thumb. I love the floatiness of the dress - it's really lovely!
