Well this is just one of those weeks, isn't it? All the better to flashback for moment to fond memories of weekends' past. This outfit was for Father's Day dinner with the 'rents at Lyon Hall. Never disappoints.

I found these sunglasses on a recent U St. shopping trip and I'm completely in love. They're nothing special brand-wise, but I like to think they could pass (at a distance) for the Tom Ford Nikitas.

You always look so good in ladylike prints. Fantastic glasses. They are a great buy.

I never do this, but the moment I saw that dress in this post, I clicked over to the Zara website and bought it! The pattern is stunning, and I love the slight v-back.

Love those sunglasses! I haven't yet worked up the courage to wear cat-eye frames myself, but I always love them on other people.

Beautiful outfit - I wasn't expecting that V in the back. And also, must say, glad to see you're a) still blogging, and b) that I managed to stumble across your blog again :) said...

so obsessed with your heels AND sunglasses!

These colors look so pretty on you! Love the print of your dress, such a beautiful outfit.

Ali Hval said...

Eep! The silhouette of that dress is so perfect! It just makes such a lovely hourglass on your tiny little waist. The pretty flowers on it are so pretty, too! I like how you're wearing it with those heels--so unexpected!

And I must agree with you about those glasses. They look pretty pricey considering they're not anything too brand fancy. :D

Anyway, you look superchic in this outfit. the dress is the perfect piece to throw on and look dazzling - the colours, the print, the interesting backside - all amazing! Lovely with the clutch as pop of hot pink!

You look so lovely. I've always felt you have the best classic pieces. Even though this dress is printed, the shape and everything else about it is simply stunning and so classic.

I love floral prints. I could wear them forever.

That dress is absolutely gorgeous, and I always love when you use that bright pink clutch - so fun!
