Pearly Pink Delight

Have you ever heard the phrase, "delicate like a flower," well, this is exactly how this sweet dress from Taylor and Stylist makes me feel. I've always been into rather delicate blouse, ones that  I usually pair with a favorite cardigan or other layers to balance the softness of it out. However, with this dress, it just didn't feel right covering it up - it's one of those pieces that just makes a statement on its own. Paired with my favorite tights, and ballet flats (a gift from Scott for our sixth anniversary), I felt oh so ladylike, and maybe a tiny bit like a ballerina (but in the best way) walking around downtown in a warmer than usual February day.

At the beginning of the month I also wore this charming number to the Puppy Love Project benefit that I co-hosted with my team from the Phoenix Style Collective. Since it was a much chiller night, I paired it with cream colored, knit tights, a tan cardigan, and oxfords. This outfit definitely spoke more to my layer loving self, but I'm learning that it's nice to change things up every now and again, and even sometimes get real simple (which will be too easy once the spring/summer heat comes rolling my way).

This morning I'm thinking I need an extra large iced coffee (after I finish the one I'm currently drinking - oops), and also maybe a roam around Target or Ulta just to get out before class tonight. Yesterday I spent the whole day visiting grandma, working on a take-home exam, and starting my spring cleaning, so today I think it's time to get out in the sunshine!

How was your weekend? What are you really excited for this week?

  1. I love the subtle sweetheart top and slightly sheer top. Super cute.
    When I first saw the pictures, I thought you cut your hair and said "NOOOOOO!" in my head haha. Loving the side bun!

    Our weekend was busy, camper business and work work work. I long for warm weather and days off!
    I'm excited to the weekend! I have tickets to a chili cook-off that benefits our local VA hospital :)
