Pastel (See Jane Wear)

                  banana republic chambray shirt (a staple worn here and here) + necklace (c/o), rory beca dressh&m belt, j crew heels, 
                                                                                                                              c/o alex + ani feather bangle
I hate it when I buy an item, like a dress, that only gets worn once or a handful of times.  I bought 
this dress for a wedding in June and slowly but surely it was pushed to the back of my closet.  
During a slight panic while furiously looking for something else, I rediscovered the said dress and 
determined to make it work for a more casual evening out.  Chambray and a wide leather  belt 
instantly dress anything down and this dress was no exception.  The palette was soft and feminine 
and the chambray and leather toughened it up a bit.

In related news, I met up with my San Francisco friend, Anh, on Saturday night along with Taylor, Audrey and Jennifer.  Anh and I became friends when I was traveling out to San Fran every week for work and it was so fun to have her in my neck of the woods.

How was your weekend?


  1. Anna, I LOVE this! I keep seeing chambray belted over dresses lately and I lovelovelove the look! You look gorgeous! And so fun that you girls got together! Envious of all the blogger meet ups that happen other places!

  2. I LOVE this outfit!! such a great combo! Chic and casual! For some reason the ends of the paragraph are being cut off where the advertisements are? I didnt know if you knew! amazing post!

  3. Oh wow, who would have thought that dress was pushed in the back of the closet. That whole look is amazing and I am not ashamed to say I am going to try my best to dupicate it.

    Great post!

    So, pretty soon models will be out of a job. There is something really creepy about that

  4. Love this look layered with casual extras…the chiffon would be wayyyy to dressy for everyday street wear but that chambray totally tones down the look…especially for a night on the town with the girls…you look fantastic!

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog sweets, hope to see you back again soon!

    Peace. Love. LOL!
