Everything Looks Better When The Sun Goes Down

This was like an outfit equivalent to comfort food. I wore the dress and shoes yesterday,and when I woke up today I was not feeling so great. In fact I felt so bad I just added tights, a tank and a cardigan and went for day 2 in the dress and shoes.

And as lazy as the outfit was, and as boring as it kind of is, the lines are very flattering. I feel great in it. And I get around not quite being able to button the dress by adding a cami and pretending I layered for the look.

At least I hope I get around it.

I finally remembered to get a picture of this adorable gold filled safety pin earring! Too bad I forgot to close it before I did!

Isn't it adorable though? The seller normally sells pairs but listed a single for me as soon as I asked about the possibility.

I ended up feeling so poorly I lasted all of an hour and a half at before coming home, where Nathan is feeding me broth and crackers and Sprite. I’m sure I’ll be on the mend by tomorrow!

You on a sick day are eons better than me everyday. And I agree that you get away with the non-buttoning via the layering.

Feel better soon.

Surprise surprise...I love the outfit! That's me..lazy and boring, I guess. Sorry you aren't feeling well but you do look great despite the fact.

Mia just saw your safety pin earring and I swear I'm calling YOU when she tries to poke one in her un-pierced ears b/c she liked it! Take that as a compliment..she's a stylish one.

you definitely rock the look and girl, i totally understand the cami-because-i-can't-button-up, and it works on you most definitely.

also that safety pin earring is the coolest thing ever. :)
