They say you should write what you know, and I similarly believe you should wear what you like. Pushing the boundaries is great, both as a writer and a person who gets dressed in the morning, but sometimes you just want to do what feels natural. Gingham and pink couldn't be more natural for me, so of course this is an outfit I'm positively obsessed with (and hope no one will call me out for wearing again and again).

Can we talk about this purse for a sec? I decided that I wanted to incorporate grey accessories into my closet this season, but hadn't decided on a purse I really loved. I was leaning towards buying this one from Old Navy that I liked (it looks like it's sold out now), but something was keeping me from pulling the trigger on it. Apparently, what was stopping me was that I would eventually discover this perfect cat-shaped purse, which is equal parts sleek in its boxy shape and solid faux leather exterior and adorable in its, well, cat shape. That's pretty much my aesthetic these days: sophisticated kitsch.

A sizing note about this dress: I'm wearing it in my usual size 8 (for dresses) and I could easily fit a corgi/toddler in here with me. Which is great for eating all the French toast my heart desires, but I figured I should mention it in case you'd prefer to size down. HOWEVER: the sleeves are veeeeery slim. I may or may not have had big ole red marks on the inside of my elbows after wearing it all day the first time. So maybe don't size down and just leave room for corgis, okay?
