Green and Gold

Happy Monday! It was (another) relaxing weekend at home for me, Chapin and the pugs. The highlight was probably Saturday night, when Chapin made pizza and we watched Ad Astra in our theater room. The movie was a bit bland, but watching Brad Pitt for two hours is never a bad thing... wink, wink! We also had new furniture delivered on Friday -- finally! We've been waiting for so long, and finally have drawers in our bedroom again.

Today's dress is one I had my eye on for awhile. I refused to buy it until it went on sale, though! I love the flowing silhouette, how it moves in the breeze, and the green and gold color scheme.

Outfit Details

DressTed Baker London Delyla Meadow Long Sleeve Midi Dress

The dress is still on sale at several online retailers, including Bloomingdale's, the Ted Baker website and Zappos. Ted Baker is a British brand, so sizing can be a bit wonky, and from my experience with the Ted Baker brand, it's not consistent. I'm wearing a size 1 for reference, which probably equates to a U.S. size 2. (However, in other dresses I find I'm a size 2, or a U.S. size 4. It can be very frustrating to shop this brand online!)

My advice: Go with your gut, and make sure it's not a final sale in case you have issues with the fit.

Shoes: Sophia Webster Freya Platform Sandals in Gold

Find the shoes on the Sophia Webster website, as well as at Bloomingdale's and Saks. Sophia Webster is also a British brand, and the brand runs very small, so I recommend you go up at least one size when buying Sophia Webster shoes.


Sophia Bush wore the sandals to an event in late 2019:

I've been absolutely obsessed with Sophia Webster this year. The shoes are gorgeous, feminine and glittery -- definitely three things I like in a shoe!

These high sandals are also a good contract with the more uppity vibe of the dress. The shoes definitely help bring a note of fun to what could have been an ordinary outfit.


Buffy/How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan wore the dress back in March during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

She's part of one of my favorite celebrity couples, married to fellow Buffy/Angel star Alexis Denisof (he played Wesley) since 2003. They were married just a few weeks before me and Chapin!
