Back to Reality (See Jane Wear)

Tibi dress (via Gilt), H&M belt, F21 shoes, Essie ‘Really Red’ nail polish

Another weekend has come and gone, in the blink of an eye; I swear, they get shorter and shorter as you get older.  As I mentioned on Friday, I spent the weekend with some girlfriends in Atlanta.  I had such a great time and experienced case of the Sunday Blues like no other when traveling home to Chicago.  Because of my propensity to get ready at the very last minute before a night out, I didn’t snap photos of my friends (or myself) in their outfits, as planned.  When I came home early Sunday, I simply recreated the outfit I wore on Saturday night (i.e. one piece of clothing–a dress) and had Eric snap some pictures (please tell me some of you have done this before?).


Also, you might be wondering about the shoes I’ve been wearing nonstop.  Yes, I do have other shoes, and no, I don’t wear them.


  1. You look gorgeous!! I love this dress. I own nothing Tibi, but if I could fill my wardrobe with two designers, Tibi would be one of them (the other would be Diane von Furstenberg!) Always such pretty dresses! And yes, I absolutely re-create looks for photos MOST of the time. My latest post, for example. Yup, dressed back up in sequins on a Sunday morning. I had to scrub the bar stamp off my hand. πŸ˜‰ Classy.

  2. Hey, if the shoes work, wear 'em. πŸ™‚

    I haven't done this only because I'm too lazy. If I don't get pictures the first time around, I'll wait until I wear the outfit again. Lazy is me.

  3. Gorgeous dress and it looks amazing on you! I've been awful at hitting up Gilt 9am (PST) on the dot. So many times I've checked and (of course) things I would have loved to pick up are totally sold out!

  4. Yes, have totally done this before πŸ˜‰ … and seriously the weekends go by way too quickly! I had a serious case of the Sunday night blues last night as well.

  5. That dress is totally gorgeous. I love how it looks like the petals are going to fly right off!!

    And girl you are far more ambitious than me. I curl up in a ball and try for plan 2 with the camera. oy


  6. I do it all the time! the outfits I wear to church hardly get to see anyone (esp anyone from school that would recognize the repeat) so those get worn sunday monday often.

  7. Hi @pearlsandgreentea and @2yorkstreet

    The quality of the F21 shoes is surprisingly not bad. I've worn them A LOT this winter and Chicago weather can really beat up your shoes. They're actually really comfortable too (i.e. I can wear them to work all day without wanting to off myself). But, I can't speak to any other shoes as they're the only pair I own.

  8. if you find something you love…wear it! i definitely have my favorites and i wear all them all the time! love the low back on this dress.
