With all this talk of Grad School work lately I've been feeling very studious. So when I threw on this outfit I immediately thought I looked like a prim and proper student, going off to some fancy university where they are already in the full fall swing of things. Leaves changing, library study sessions, and hot coffees all around!

I recently received this pretty dress from Modcloth. I'm obsessed with the silky like fabric, the pretty pattern, and the ruffles (oh the ruffles!). I felt so feminine and put together in it, and that is exactly how I want to feel!

There is one accessory missing that I just wished I had. I think a Cambridge Satchel would look perfect with this outfit, and would definitely be the finishing touch. I've been wanting one for ages now, and I really think it's time to just take the plunge and purchase one. They are seriously SO darling!

The dress is sleeveless, but I thought for a more fall look I would pair it with a cardigan. Even it's still in the 90's here, I'm all about fall. I have no problem suffering through the heat for a cute fall outfit!

This week I'm looking forward to a coffee date/meeting with Courtney and a few friends to chat about something exciting we are working on! I can't really give away details yet, but it's going to be awesome (plus I love any excuse to hang out with sweet people). I'm also ready to head back to yoga for another week. Last week's experience wasn't the best, but we did get a lot of good stretching in (and the class was free). I'm also excited to share something VERY exciting on Sunday! It's really going to be a great week!

Cardigan: Target

This weekend Scott and I saw Drive with Ryan Gosling. Have any of you gone and seen it? If so, what did you think? I kind of loved the music and Gosling's stern stairs (swoon). What do you have going on this week?

  1. Cute shoes! I have them in the grey color. So comfy. xo, rv

  2. The dress is really perfect for a lot of occasions because it's so classy. I'd love to see a picture of the satchel you're talking about.

  3. that dress is darling. perfect look to put you in the studious mood.

  4. Your hair is so cute pulled back like that!
    I saw Drive with my bf and really liked it, except for all of the violence--it was a little graphic for me. I had to cover my eyes alot towards the end, but the way they used music/lighting/facial expressions/body language to set the tone, as opposed to a lot of dialogue, was pretty amazing to me.

  5. I looorve Ryan Gosling. And I also love those shoes!

  6. I'm so glad to hear everything is going well! So many surprise tidbits coming our way! The outfit is great too and ahhh it's still 90 there?? That's awesome! haha xD
