a doily pattern in the wilderness.


H&M crochet shift dress | F21 medallion feather earrings | Zara tassel slingbacks | H&M fringe purse | F21 beaded bracelet | H&M fox tail keychain

It's been a long time coming for me wanting to wear this crochet dress. Being subject to the winds (plus experiencing tornado warnings late last week), I wasn't really in the mood of replaying Marilyn Monroe on the  subway grate. Today, however, was a glorious day. 70+ degrees, with mild winds. Perfect for wearing this frock...with shorts under! Solution to any windy mishaps. 

Lately, I've been mindful of anything with feathers. I'm not usually one to wear tons of jewelry, but I stocked up on some feather embellished jewelry this weekend. These pheasant earrings are one of the consequences of said "feather purchases." Add the fringe purse and the fox fur keychain, and I felt really happy-go-lucky channeling the desert chic vibe today.

On a side note, I was asked to be a guest blogger by the lovely Steffy. Check out my guest post here.

P.S. Remember to enter the $80 giveaway I am hosting towards your very own pair of designer shoes! (Think D&G, Dior, See by Chloe, Sam Edelman, etc.) 

Two winners will be selected! You can enter the giveaway here.

I am totally digging this look on you. It's very bohemian-chic. I think crochet has the potential to look a little matronly, but the cut of that dress is super modern and fun. You look fantastic. I love the shoes!
