I thought it was going to be cooler out today based on yesterday's weather, but I have a feeling I'll be changing mid-day as the temps rise.




VS tee
AG jeans
Clarks Indigo boots



I'm soooooooo in need of brown casual boots and another Bal bag other than black.
Oh wow...I have that same exact shirt!

Today, it's butterflies.
Ooooh, I like those, too. I guess I've just seen a few too many men debate over whether they should wear the red tie with the blue diaganol stripes or the blue tie with the red horizontal stripes. Because, you know, they're so different, how could anyone possibly choose?

But dragonflies and butterflies both strike my fancy. Fun and whimsical without being costumey.

I'm still forced into scrubs every day but that's soon to change. I didn't wear this today, but I did last weekend so...that still counts.



Anthropologie dress, which I love in part because it actually comes almost to my knees unlike the usual crotch-high options I have to choose from at other stores.



And it's so much nicer when you realize it's covered in little embroidered tennis rackets. I love the belt, too, from Express, because it's adjustable.

Worn with platform wedges, which got me compliments for being unafraid to be tall. Is there some negative connotation with being tall? Because people always seem to think I'm very brave when I wear heels. There must be some sort of monster that only eats tall people...

UE, I like that dress. I love green and I love eyelet. I have a full purple skirt in a similar pattern, not tennis rackets but an embroidered teardrop shape. I can't wear necklines like that but the dress is adorable.

That is an amazing dress. Excellent choice of colour. Doesn't matter where you buy. It's all about the right fit and precision. Two thumb approval.

It's a really beautiful dress. You should look up Ted Baker dresses on eBay UK. Very colourful, very vibrant and every piece issues a fashion statement. Even their watches. Some auctions begin at 0.01 pounds and it's so ridiculous. Two women I introduced to Ted Baker dresses, they keep thanking me.

I think people assume tall girls should either sit all the time or slouch to be 'normal'. I always get so many comments (mostly negative) whenever I wear heels, which is often.

I just smile and tell them to blow it out their behinds

OK no opp for pics, so you gotta "imagine."

Beige fit and flare dress with white polka dots. This was pretty "boring" for me, so I added a hot pink belt, hot pink cardigan and yellow pumps. It was sort of 50s with technicolor.

This was the dress:
