LOVES: Minor Tweaks....Major Difference

This floral For Love And Lemons dress has been hanging on a rack in my room for a few months. I wore it on my birthday, despite it being way WAY too short. But, after browsing on some other FL+L pieces...I was inspired. After seeing all of their beautiful trims, I headed to the fabric store and picked up some almost identical black venice lace. A few minutes on my sewing machine and a quick handstitch, and my new dress was born. Not only was it a perfect touch, but it also added about three more inches to cover my bum and I kinda want to put this trim on everything I own now :)

Now everyone's happy and appropriate and stuff! Happy Fall!

OOTD: Lover Boy Dress

Dress - For Love and Lemons ($162), Kimono - Rory Beca for Forever21 (unavailable), Booties - Forever21 ($43), Clutch - Forever21 ($28), Socks - H&M (unavailable)

Loving this new Fall weather since I can actually ENJOY the outdoors. I've been hiding out inside all Summer just counting down the days until I can take full advantage of my closet. I bought this For Love & Lemons Lover Boy Daisy dress a few months ago and I'm so excited that I can easily transition it into the Fall months. I added my Rory Beca for Forever21 black kimono to add a little more feminine whimsy. To balance everything out I brought out the hardware...these amazing studded booties + clutch from Forever21 add that edge I always feel incomplete without...not to mention the metallic gold socks!

LOVES: For Love & Lemons Kimono

 I've been obsessed with this kimono ever since I first laid eyes on it in the showroom of my internship over a year ago. They had white in stock and I wasn't necessarily sold on the color, but the fabric + lace trim was so great. Not sure why it's taken me until NOW to order it in black...but it's mine! It goes with everything...e v e r y t h i n g. I'm already pretty excited about wearing it over bikinis this summer too! This morning was pretty chilly so, instead of the dress I had in mind, I ended up just throwing on jeans and a tee then added my kimono for an instant splash of fancy. Not to's gorgeous outside for some chiffon!
