garden party



Hello lovelies! Sunday is here - my lazy day to get stuff done and bum around the house. I ended up going to see Beirut play The Cabooze last night and I'm tired from all that unexpected fun and also from the fact that my doctor has limited me to only eating bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast for the next few days. I'm craving tacos like no other, so I'm already anticipating this whole post-Guatemalan diet to let up. In the meantime, I'm going to stay home and clean. I have so much cleaning to do, it's ridiculous! I've let a lot of stuff accumulate and now I have to get it all done before it takes over my life.
 
I wore this little dress to church today. It is brand new from Lalamagic! I am obsessed with it. It's rare to find me wearing clothing of such bright colour but I'm enjoying it all the same. Maybe I should get into it more often. I decided to go all out with the colour and belt the dress with pink, green, and blue.
 

I also wore my teal Steve Madden wedges. I thought that black would be too harsh to wear with such a light coloured dress and, believe it or not, these are my only "nice" shoes of colour! Most of my other church shoes are black. Aye yi yi, how did I let that happen? Shoe shopping time! I think these wedges are good testament to the fact that I love chunky shoes. I added purple socks because the shoes are slightly too big and thus my ankles needed some fattening up. Colour is fun to play with!
 

I'm excited to keep wearing this dress. It's super light and flippy, making it ideal for hot weather (such as today!) but I also look forward to wearing it in the winter. I think it'll go perfect with a turtleneck underneath. Winter always gets so blaaahhh because of all the dark colours - this will brighten things up! But why I am talking about winter in July? I have all of November to talk about the impending cold.
 
Anyways, I better get a start on all this junk that's building up in my room. Aye yi yi, how did I let that happen? I'm off to see Moonrise Kingdom tonight with a good friend. I'm super excited, as I've heard wonderful things about the movie and I think it'll be perfect summer outfit inspiration.

You should wear bright colours more often cos this dress looks beautiful on you :) Also nice to see you rocking a side bun! It looks cute on you, I tried it on myself and I looked ridiculous, haha. I reckon its because I don't have a fringe :/
