Put A Bird on It!

I took advantage of a gloriously sunny day & a special project I was working on (I'm sworn to secrecy, but I'll share it with you when I can!) to wear my lovely new Faryl Robin shoes and build an outfit around them. What do you guys think of the shorter-in-the-front-longer-on-the-back dress thing? I'm kind of in love with it! When I saw this dress (and that it actually fit me) I had to have it! 

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was too short, but I was able to have a little fun...the highlight of which may have been eating takoyaki at the Cherry Blossom festival in Japantown. Hey, what can I say... I like to eat these days!

Shoes: Faryl Robin
Dress: Angie
Faux Leather Bomber Jacket: Collection by Bernardo

Blair in Kate Spade (LOVE)

I met Blair while on my recent business trip to Charlotte, NC. It turns out that she and I went to neighboring high schools in Chesapeake, VA, and we graduated the same year. Small, small world.
I had to put her on the blog...she looks SO CUTE, and are you ready for this?!?!? She just had a baby less than 6 months ago. She's going to be my inspiration post baby! I love how she paired the chunky necklace with her girly ruffled Kate Spade dress. Adorable.

Gypsy Chic & Johnny Depp

I love boho chic. I can't pull it off the way the Olsen twins do, with layer upon layer, accessory on top of accessory. I can't score Johnny Depp either though, so I guess I don't have a lot in common with the Olsens (have you heard? Johnny Depp is rumored to be dating Ashley. Lucky girl.).

Anyhow, I got this dress at my favorite local boutique, Ambiance. They had posted it on Facebook, and I made a beeline to get it, realizing that it'll be a great maternity dress, and that I'll be able to wear it after baby arrives too! I love it so much that I bought another similar dress by the same designer in a shorter version. I'm a total sucker for prints, and as I mentioned in a previous post, I'm sick of stripes!

I don't really understand why maternity clothes all look like you're meant to conceal your body and blend into the wall. Thank the fashion gods that I can fit into non-maternity clothes and not be a wallflower. You know me--I ain't going down like that!

So here it is, with a little added bonus of a clutch and beautiful gold scarf to make it an evening look (for my fantasy social life. In reality, I came home to make dinner, and if I can stay awake long enough, I might catch a little boob tube!).
