Today I'm wearing my first dress from the Sea brand. The smocked bodice and flutter sleeves really caught my eye, so when this dress went on sale, I had to buy it! The dress runs large, but otherwise, I love it.

This whole outfit seems like a little girl's fantasy come true. The dress is colorful and the shoes and purse are pink and fabulous. And yes, you can still be a bad ass in pink!

Who doesn't love a little black dress?
This Ted Baker design has a few stunning details, like the black and rose gold buttons going up the front, the large pockets and the thick fabric, that truly help it stand out.
Dress: Ted Baker London Octavia Button Up Dress
This dress is perfect for Fall -- if you live in the South -- since the day usually starts out cool (temperature in the 50s) and ends up warm (high 70s/low 80s).
Shoes: Sophia Webster Amelie Black Suede Pearl-Studded Sandals
I thought the pearls on the shoes played off the buttons on the dress for a nice overall effect.
Unfortunately, both the shoes and dress are no longer available.

This navy dress from Shoshanna is dotted with fun florals in bright, vivid colors. It has a belt that cinches at the waist, three-quarter mesh sleeves and a smocked bodice, so it's super flattering.
I wanted to wear something eye-catching today to help wake me up; lately, I can't seem to sleep through the night without waking up at least two or three times, whether it's the dogs, Chapin or me having a weird dream or needing to go to the bathroom. I would love just several hours of uninterrupted sleep! Last night, I dreamt I had to take the SATs again, and I opened my booklet early and got in trouble. Anxiety manifests itself in weird ways, doesn't it? Usually it's the math class dream -- I have a big test, but haven't been to class all semester -- that wakes me up and has me reminding myself that I already graduated from high school, college and grad school!
I've been watching episodes of Seinfeld lately on Hulu just for some guaranteed laughs. My favorite episode is still The Marine Biologist, but The Junior Mint is a close second.
Fun Fact: Jerry Seinfeld dated founder Shoshanna Gruss for years in the 90s at the height of his fame, even though she was about 30 years younger. I guess it's appropriate that I'm wearing her design today!
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Lang Sandals in Flame
I've had these shoes for years and they are still in such good condition. I love me some Jimmy Choos!

Today's dress is chic and fun, with a black and nude color combination that perfectly pairs with my favorite Valentino shoes.
The dress is slimming, with fluttery sleeves and a wide black band at the waist.

This sweet dress from Alice + Olivia is so feminine and chic; I can't resist any outfit that combines ruffles and eyelet and packages it up in this gorgeous shade of lavender. Purple is definitely a color that looks great on everyone!
There are so many pastel colors swirling in the design of these fun sandals from Sophia Webster that you can wear them with a variety of different outfits. I think they add to the whimsical nature of the whole look.

The work days are just flying by -- and I don't seem to get any real work done until the phone stops ringing around 5 p.m.! My company continues to grow and thrive, but there is so much going on that I feel stressed all the time. Growing pains, right?
The dress is also still available to rent!

This week feels so long already. Work has been extremely stressful, so today's post will be short and sweet.

Today's dress from Milly is super cozy! Even though the day eventually warmed up, I was still glad to have something warm yet chic to wear to the office.
Dress: Milly Dégradé Striped Fit and Flare Dress (no longer available)
Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors Mesh Leilah Sandals in Nude (no longer available)
I bought these sandals at Belk back in 2016. I used to love shopping at the Phipps Plaza store, but it sadly closed in 2018. I would often meet my mom there for fun bargain shopping and bonding. At least we have some nice memories!
