Striped Shift

Dress: Maggy London, Blazer: Smart Set, Shoes: Steve Madden, Bag: Coach, Necklace: HRH Collection, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: c/o Stella & Dot, c/o Stowe Street and Vince Camuto via Envy, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

Oh, sweet blog friends. I'm finally back with an outfit post for you! It's been over a week! I guess I just want to acknowledge the distance without apologizing for it because my little blog break was absolutely necessary. There are times in life that require a lot of self reflection, and this is one of those times. And in walking that ever fine line between knowing what to share on the blog, just know that I'm in a life changing period and that's all I've got for you right now. And I'm kind of hoping that's all I'll ever have for you, because if I don't mention it again, things have probably worked out just fine. :)

I'm sporting a new favorite dress from Maggy London - seriously one of my most favorite things to wear right now! I love that the front is horizontal stripes and the back is vertical. It gives a fun twist to an otherwise classic striped shift dress! I don't know if you can really tell from the photos but the blazer is a pale citron and has become an absolute work/life staple lately! Sometimes random colors like this end up going with absolutely everything!

I hope you're all doing well & I look forward to catching up on your blogs this week! xo!

  23. A blogging break is totally understandable; I'm sure most of us don't mind! Great outfit, btw, I think it looks perfectly put together and the black/white combo is very sophisticated and chic.
