Jul 29, 2013

well, this weekend was mellow. my honey marked assignments (he’s teaching summer school) and i spent much of it coding my blog. oh man, martin & i spent so much time on our computers on saturday that we were giddy with laughter. computer drunk as we like to call it. then on sunday we went to church with our good friends Jeff & Kira, grabbed sushi for lunch, came home, crashed on the couch and watched orange is the new black.
and... this is what i wore all weekend long. i just picked up this dress from zara’s summer clearance sale and i love it. the dress has a fantastic open back as well as deep slits on either side which gives the dress great movement when you walk. so far this summer, i've been favouring a more relaxed & bohemian look: lots of maxi's, top knots with dangly earrings, denim cut offs with pretty flowy cami’s and strappy leather sandals. but, i'll admit i've started dreaming up outfits for the fall. anyone else?
outfit details: 
 jacket - h&m (similar)
dress - zara
necklace - stella & dot
bracelets (coming soon) - my etsy shop
* bracelets will be added to the shop on wednesday
shoes - gap

  1. gorgeous jewelry! love that you made the bracelet

  2. You are definitely not the only one who has started dreaming up fall outfits, V! We're getting a bit of a break from the heat right now - by which I mean it's 25 out instead of 35 - and so I've been taking advantage to play in my closet; testing out sweater and skirt combinations. But in the meantime, I've been loving easy breezy dresses and this one is so pretty... the length is just perfect on you!

  3. So cute! Love the bracelets you made for your shop :) Can't wait to see them! Sounds like a perfect weekend, especially with sushi. I, too, am also dreaming up fall outfits...although fall here in Florida is just not the same. Definitely will miss the Pennsylvania foliage and chilly mornings I'm so used to.

  4. I just love that dress - it looks so flowy and perfect for summer! And I love that you referred to it as "computer drunk" ... I know that feeling all too well.

  14. Yep! I've definitely been dreaming of Fall. I was staring at my mustard coat asking it "when can I wear you again" in my mind. Haha! I love that dress! It looks sooo flowy! :) How did you like Orange is the New Black? I already need the next season in my life! Haha!

  18. Hey! Look at you with your side-swept bangs! Bangs traitor! ;) :P
    You look so pretty in your maxi. Makes me want to wear mine (I only own the one) with my denim jacket, too. :) Maybe I'm the only one here who's not in a hurry for fall to arrive - I've longed for summer for so long that I just want to continue wearing dresses with bare legs a little bit longer! ;)

  19. I love the perfect clearance find- and this one is amazing! Fall can't come fast enough- everything I have purchased recently I think 'Can this transition into fall?' Too early for that? haha You styled this one perfectly!

  20. You look absolutely stunning Veronika! I love that dress, I've been looking for some cute printed maxis lately. You definitely rock the bohemian look!
