[dress: c/o apart style / skirt + tights: h&m / shoes: oaknyc / belt: vintage / glasses: c/o warby parker]
This weekend I spent most of my time out and about enjoying the city. I wanted to get dressed up for a day on the town so I reached for this new patterned dress, which happens to be called the Art School Dress. Figures because I AM an art school girl 😉 And yes! It’s a dress, cleverly tucked under my skirt. Never underestimate the power of a strong shoulder to add a little sass to your step. The silk texture was fun next to the toughness of the faux leather skirt.
I headed to the Reading Terminal Market for a bite to eat and some food shopping with friends. My life most definitely rotates around food. Something that can bring people together to just be relaxed, enjoy the company, and stuff our faces with goodness. Dinner party anyone?? Lol. Hope everyone is having a great week! Half way through guys. Good work! xo

SweetLaundry - This dress (as a top) is AWESOME. I didn’t even know it was a dress until you mentioned it. I can’t wait to see how you style the dress on it’s own, but it looks great with this leather skirt. And the side bun is PERFECTION.
Bellesme - Awesome! You can really rock the (midi?) skirts! LOVe it!
christi - Oooh nice tights! (especially with the pink lipstick!) the perfect shade of rust… i cant pull those off or it looks like my legs are sunburnt… :/
Andrea K - You look so amazing! I love how you styled the dress with the skirt! So ladylike but edgy at the same time! Miss youuuu!

MG - I love that dress!
Monique Zuman - That black skirt is really pretty!!
Arushi Khosla - Ohmygod, adorable as usual! Love the skirt. I need to get myself a voluminous one- maybe a jade green? Your hair is always so perfect, I’m endlessly jealous.
