dress: Luxe Apothetique (local boutique) // vest: Target (little girls' section) // shoes: Lulu's (same
I thought of this outfit a while back, but it got too warm in Austin to wear faux fur, so it got moved down my "to wear" list. When I checked the weather and saw it was in the high 50s, I decided that was good enough. I bought this dress last winter and wore it constantly right around New Years. It's a ridiculously comfortable dress and I love that it buttons all the way up.

I wore this to Quacks Bakery last week to meet up with my new buddy Annie. She's a graphic designer + web developer who's helping me get Here Comes the Brand up and running. I love new friends, especially ladies with skillz.

After our coffee date, I did some last minute Valentine's Day shopping for Dago at the mall and I must have looked like such a fashion blogger because everyone was staring at me. I mean, thanks, but I'm in a time crunch! Anyway, it was the perfect coffee + errands outfit and I'll probably be repeating it until spring.

Oh, and sometimes Dago walks up while I'm taking photos of myself and photo bombs me. Thanks, babe.


  1. you are so cute.
    i love these pictures.
    and what a great dress.
    however i have a fear of fur.
    its freaks me out and i can't touch it, unless it is on a nice fluffy animal.
    also love that photobomb.


  2. your glasses are adorable - and so are these pictures.

    the black on black looks fabulous on you!


  3. I JUST left a thrift store that had a girls size fur vest for $2.50... you're making me wish I would've gotten it!

  5. I <3 that vest.
    I don't think I'm brave enough to wear one yet, but..maybe one day.
    Oh, and I know it's probably just the fact that I actually wear real clothes to school, but people give me stares and looks all the time now. Oh well ;)
