{STYLE} Like a Sweet Treat


I've always held onto the sentiment that fashion should be, first and foremost, about having fun. Sure, there are events and occasions that call for a modicum of seriousness, but it's certainly not the guiding principle by which I dress myself. Most days start with a clothing item begging to be worn (a striped midi skirt, a pair of leopard flats, or, in case of today, a lilac satchel). Once I've become fixated on that lilac satchel, my mind turns into something like that amazing software Cher Horowitz had in 1995 (and yet there's STILL not an app for that?!) and not long after I end up looking sort of like a cupcake (equally saccharine, and just as twee).

There are few times of the year where it feels completely appropriate to dress like a liberally frosted baked good (this is one incredibly verbose way of saying "cupcake"), but the spring time is certainly one of those times, even if the warmth continues to elude us here in the Northeast. Other times include bake sales, halloween, baby showers, and Wednesdays. If I can't eat pastries all the time (only because of my gluten sensitivity, guys, really), I sure as hell am going to do my best to look like one, at least on this Wednesday. Cause, you know, on Wednesdays We Wear Pink.

  11. I love dressing around certain things because it almost feels like theme dressing, and I am just way too into that.
    I'm just so smitten with the rhinestone detail on your dress and the lilac belt, and everything! It's so pretty and perfect for spring.

  31. The only time it's even possible for me to adore you even more than I already do, is when you're dressed head to toe in pastels just because it's a Wednesday and springtime. You look gorgeous here!

    P.S. I still regret not getting these shoes at the time; they're SO dreamy!
