What I Wore: Forest Chambray


So named because of the forest green of this dress and the chambray top over it, of course. Not because it’s particularly appropriate for frolicking in a forest (though I don’t think it’d fare too badly). This is what I wore on Monday. It was a day for errands, house chores, and a bit of work (not too much of this last, actually – it was a slow day). The comfy dress + knotted top combo has become one of my staples, I think. It’s so easy, yet still comfy and put-together looking. And yes. This necklace, again. Because I love it. And this puppy, again, because I love her, too. And for the record, I did not intentionally match my dress to my toenails; that’s just the color my toes are rocking at the moment.

Tonight is date night once again. It’s my turn to pick, and I’m thinking some version of Italian; haven’t quite decided yet. Also: officially less than a week until my birthday (the 23rd)! Woohoo! Ian’s taking a few days off next week (including my bday, naturally) and we’re going to hang out and go visit a vineyard and eat yummy things and maybe go hiking. It’ll be a regular ol’ birthday staycation. 😀

What are you guys up to this week?
