{closet-worthy} Marchesa Voyage Mix Maxi Dress

Can we talk about how GORGEOUS this Marchesa Voyage dress is? Maybe it's just the photo, but I am in love. I'm not usually one for maxi dresses, deep v-necks or florals, but it is beautiful.  It is also similar to a Free People dress I tried on last month, which is a lot more budget friendly.

{outfit} Floral and Lace

Another attempt to keep something that is usually more Fall/Wintery in play for Spring.  I do plan on continuing wearing these black skinnies throughout the Spring, and perhaps into the Summer. The easiest way to do that is to pair it with bright colors and florals.

{daily inspiration} Melissa GIlbert's 80s Style

Random fact about me: I LOVE Little House on the Prairie.  I finally watched the series a couple years ago (after reading the books when I was young) and instantly fell in love. It's funny, cute and also dramatic.  Plus, I also wouldn't mind living in that time, yes, even without computers and phones. The star of the show, Melissa Gilbert, basically grew up on screen and in the 80s had a really great sense of style.  Below are some of her looks, unfortunately a lot have watermarks.

P.S. Not saying all the outfits are good or that I'd wear them, but she can pull them all off. :)

{outfit} Transitions

Here's a closer look at last Monday's outfit.  I wanted to wear my Chanel skirt again before it got too hot, so I decided to make it more Spring-like with the bright green sweater. It's so nice to be able to walk to work without a huge coat, it makes such a difference in the enjoyment. I walk 1.5 miles to and from the office so to be able to move more freely is always a plus.

{outfits} This Week in Fashion

Guess what today is... My 4 year blog anniversary! I can't believe it's been four years since I started this little blog. In those years I've met new friends, some of which have become real life friends too. I started this blog not planning to post any outfits, and now 4 years later I have shared over 450 outfits. I've done a photoshoot for one of my favorite online stores and was chosen to be part of Marshalls Project Fab. Slowly but surely this blog is helping me overcome my fear of social situations, something I've struggled with for years. And now it's on to the next adventure!

Apparently I was into green this week, ha ha. It was gorgeous, weather-wise this week, except for bits of rain, which are only fun when you're able to be inside with a blanket watching movies.
