This vacation is beginning to feel like an eternal weekend – a fantasy that is sure to be unpleasantly shattered when my alarms for work begin going off a few hours from now. This outfit had the perfect ethereal feeling for the last of my carefree, daydream afternoons.
The dress and bra were Christmas gifts Gregors picked out for me from one of our new favorite online shops, I Don’t Like Mondays. If the dress looks vaguely familiar that’s because I posted a lighter, less strappy version in an earlier covet. I wanted an undergarment that was intended to show under this ultra-sheer frock. The Alexander Wang bra was the perfect solution. I think it is meant to cross in the back, but I like the added interest (and coverage) of crossing in the front with this plunging neckline.
And is any outfit really complete without something atop your head? This incredible refashioned vintage hat by my very talented friend Amanda of Red Bird Vintage actually has little birds perched on the branches! It added the perfect touch of whimsy and innocence.
