click, purchase, mine: white lace dress by Pim + Larkin

PS – get 2o% off with code "SPLURGE"

Ever since this post on Vanessa Jackman's blog, I've been on the hunt for a white lace dress. And after searching practically everywhere, I finally found one that works for me. My favorite outfits are always a mix of masculine and feminine elements, and I'm itching for a chance to wear this dress with my camo military jacket. Until temperatures drop, though, I'm planning to balance out the sweetness of the lace with edgy sandals and a bold red lip.

found on sale at J.Crew (because everyone needs a ridiculously bright plaid shirt, right?)

playing around at home with new makeup (still not convinced that I know what I'm doing)

fresh vegetables from the neighborhood co-op (assembled for this recipe)

yep – I bought this sweater in two colors
(don't even act like you're the least bit surprised)

not pictured: fried eggs on sourdough toast, masala chai, too many ginger + cardamom cookies, the three attempts it took CVS to correctly fill my new prescription

obsessed: Madewell songbird dress

stucco stripe ($138) / black spotshadow (on sale for $99.99) / chambray ($138)

It's outside my normal price range, but trust me when I say that this dress is a WORKHORSE.
