Lessons and Lace

Remember when you used to pick out your outfit the day before school? You would just wake up in the morning, get dressed, have breakfast and GO. Well, until middle school when we didn't have uniforms. That's when I can trace my habit of staring at my closet waiting for a miraculous new outfit to appear developed (perhaps this can be blamed on "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" as well.)

While my closet has gotten significantly bigger, my habit of staring into the abyss of clothes has not improved. So, time to try something new. Last night, I laid out everything-- yes, EVERYTHING-- that I would wear today. Pigs must be flying because I still liked it in the morning and was able to have extra time for breakfast (yes, the banana french toast...mmmm.)

I'd love to say I will be doing this every night before bed from now on, but lets be honest, I'll be lucky if I do it once a month. Still better odds than a magical closet...

Dress: Zara {old but this DVF is almost identical, and a more affordable version here} // Necklace: Ben Amun {similar  here and here}

Bracelets: J. Crew Wide Bangle // Oia Jules // J. Crew Gear Bracelet

Nailpolish: Essie "Cute as a Button" and one finger of Opi "Pink Flamenco"

Shoes: Pour La Victoire


  1. I need to get bracelet advice from you. I'm often too lazy to accessorize. :(

    1. I have those days too (don't tell!) they just don't get shown :) Happy to help anytime!
