I know that taking pictures at high noon in direct sunlight is way, way less than optimal - but I can't get enough of this sunshine! Ali and I took a break from our work around lunchtime to head out and shop for her shoes for our wedding and found the perfect pair at Paul Smith... Now I need to find mine, (any suggestions?!) Since we were already there, obviously photos against their pink exterior wall were a must. 

It got up to 75-degrees today - and tomorrow will be in the 80s, so I'm allllll about this breezy white cascade dress made by my friends at Mimumaxi - a design duo of two orthodox sisters-in-law who make cool, modern pieces for the modest set. I fell in love with them both when I read about their decision to continue sharing modest fashion from women of other faiths in spite of criticism from their own community. Their message of sharing more in common than we do in difference and wanting to celebrate those similarities resonated with me, to such an extent that I emailed them just to say hello and thank them for taking such an important stand against their critics. A few emails later, and I eventually got to hang out with these Brooklyn-based babes in their neck-of-the-woods. All this to say - their line of easy, minimalist pieces are great year round, but especially perfect as we approach spring and summer! I'm so excited to remix it a million ways as the temps creep up on both coasts!

  1. Love this dress! Do you mind me asking what size you are wearing, we have similar bust and I want to ensure it won't be to tight if I buy a large.

    P.S. So happy there are so many blog posts to catch up on this week!

  5. I am so jealous of your sunshine filled pictures right now. I absolutely love this dress on you! And the shoes and the bag. I also find it refreshing how you reach out to people when you admire their work.

  21. That dress is everything! and the wisdom behind the design is something very contemporary. Similar work is being done in the muslim community with great success.
