White Dress, Green Vest

I'm hoping that by the time you're reading this, I've gotten a full night's sleep. Or better, maybe I'm still in bed with a full cup of coffee waiting for me for whenever I decide to get up. Last week was so busy (and wonderful), but the only thing missing from it was just a little bit of time to do nothing and sleep. This week is slowly filling up, especially with Thanksgiving/friends and family in town visiting, but I should be able to find a chance to catch up on rest. While nothing could really top seeing Jenny Lewis or Nick Offerman, I still had a great last few days with really good friends. I got to see my friend Greg, who was visiting from Utah, on Thursday, my old Chem class lab group (who still gets together often after becoming good friends) got together for food and drinks on Friday, and I hung out with a few of my best friends for more food and drinks on Saturday. I feel like I've spent a lot of time lately really appreciating what great friends I have, especially after talking with a couple of girls at work who have had harder times finding friends who stick around. I don't know, maybe it's the fact that Thanksgiving in a few days, but I can't help but feel truly lucky to have so many people in my life who would do anything for me, and whom I would do anything for. This is too sappy already, so I'll just quit before it gets too embarrassing and my friends start making fun of me for it, which, let's be honest, is what all true friends would do.

I wore this outfit to have dinner with my family yesterday, and I really liked the contrast of this vest with the pretty white dress. This dress is still one of my favorite pieces that I own, and this time, I decided to grab a scarf quickly on my way out the door. It ended up being the perfect way to accessorize, don't you think?

I hope today is filled with just as much sleep, coffee, and good friends like I plan on having in store for me!

  1. Love this outfit! The cream lace dress & the olive vest are such a great combo! I have similar pieces and I can't believe I never put them together :) and you've reminded me I need more scarves in my life, too hehe. Anyway, cheers to friends and coffee and decent amount of sleep, indeed :)


  2. I'm so jealous that you're able to wear such a cute outfit at this time of year!! Bare legs are only a memory for me these days!

  3. This white dress is so lovely and pretty! It looks modern with the vest and flats! What a cool bracelet!

  4. Enjoy your rest; I like the contrast too.

  5. You always make me want to wear color combos that I would never wear. I love this vest! I just bought a coat in this color and I'm like "how am I supposed to match it to my outfits?" But yet again, you are inspiring me! I hope you get rest and coffee and all that good shit you need.

  6. This white lace dress is so cute! It suits you really well and goes perfect with the vest!

  7. I love everything about this outfit. It looks great!

  8. This outfit is perfection! A little white lace dress, utility vest, and a fun scarf make it perfect for any occasion! I'm also jealous that you're baring both your arms and legs. I'll trade ya! It sounds like like you've been having a blast with your friends lately! I'm glad to hear you're doing so well and hope you get some much needed rest soon!

  9. This dress is awesome and I love the vest. I can't wait to break my green jacket out! Weeeeee!
