Summertime Pleats

Pleated Chiffon Dress*c/o Oasap // Pink Jacket*H&M  // Cardigan*Forever 21 // Bag*Lulu’s // Flats*Payless

Before I left for California, Alex and I met up last week to grab a bite to eat.  Even though the forecast was rain, rain, rain all week, we took advantage of the clear skies to snap a few pictures in Union Square.

Alex was rocking a hot pink denim skirt which I loved, even though she told me that people kept commenting on how blindingly bright it was.  I wore my new dress from  What I love about this dress is the details- the cream lace that frames the neckline and the pretty pleats that make up the skirt of the dress.  This dress is quite girly and sweet and I was going to pair it with something a little bit edgier, but let’s face it- I like dressing girly and sweet!

(all photos of me above taken by Alex– thanks lady!)

Did you have a good weekend?  As you may have seen, I’m currently in California visiting my family and some of my closest friends.  I arrived on Saturday after an early morning flight and it’s been so great to just relax and home and not worry about anything for a little while.  Today I’m planning to do a little shopping at the mall (it’s been ages since I’ve been to one).  Let’s just hope that I don’t get carried away! ;)

    Girly and sweet suits you well! I was digging the red-sweater-blue-dress combo and then when my eyes got down to the red flats that was just IT. Poifect!

  11. One day I want us to try to get photos with the W Union Square in the background. It’s one of my favorite buildings in the entire city. We will have to dodge people wandering around, though.
