The Weekender // No. 3

Rifle Paper Company plannerIt’s the weekend, and I’m hard at work on some big changes that will be coming your way tomorrow! I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on, and I hope you will all be just as excited as I am about the coming changes.

Last weekend my sister graduated from high-school, and we had a wonderful evening with family and friends. I’m so proud of her, and now I only have one sibling left in high-school! I can’t believe how grown up everyone is. This weekend I’ll be heading out to do a little exploring– since I’ve graduated, I’m living here permanently for the first time since I was 7 years old, so I’m trying to get out and get to know the city. Today will be for a little artistic exploring. I do love a good art museum!

Some links for the weekend:

Outfit: Striped Midi (Made by me!)

midi dress outfit

I’ve mentioned my love of dresses during the sticky summer months a few times here on the blog, so when I made this little knit number, I knew I would have to blog about it! I love the classic fit of the dress, the fresh midi length, the elbow sleeves, and the fact that it’s oh-so comfortable. I made it from a double sided knit fabric that is striped on one side, and polka dotted on the other. It’s so fun to see the dots peeking out every now and then.

This dress has already become quite a staple in my wardrobe and I’ve worn it everywhere from dinner to the coffee shop to the movies. I love pairing it with my favorite pointy-toe studded shoes. They are basically as close as I can get to Valentino rock stud flats, and I’m okay with that. For this look, I borrowed my sisters adorable neutral handbag with gold chain detailing. I think it finishes the look off perfectly. The resulting outfit was just right for a little reading and chatting at my favorite coffee spot…although it was a little too hot for that Americano I ordered!
