Nothing much to add to the world today except that this is our first whole week in May, so let's all go out and rock the heck out of it!

(I'm bouncing around a bit this week for work - it's nice to see the Northeast has finally shed it's winter layers and it is full-on spring up here. Looking good, NYC.)

((And I did pack this dress too - it's nice to have a piece that's comfy and I'm not afraid of balling up because this jersey so does not wrinkle. Yay!))

(((Cinco de Mayo - double yay.)))

  1. Girl, you make every color in the Crayola box weep, you're that good! I don't think I've ever seen you in a color that didn't do you any favors. This one is my new fave on you. Rock on!

    1. Aw, thanks, M! Usually pastel pinks and purples make me look washed out, but this dress is more saturated and totally works for me, a pleasant surprise!

  2. You look lovely in these ladylike pastels! I'm all about low-maintenance fabrics. If I have to iron it, I'm probably not going to buy it. Because I know myself. And I am lazy. lol Love the pearl bracelets and sparkle to complete this feminine, pretty look!

    1. How much they've come out with all these stain and wrinkle resistant men's clothing but more retailers don't have anything similar for the girls? We stain too!

  27. That dress is so pretty and you paired it in such a lovely, feminine look which is so perfect for sprin and summer. Little arm party is great accent of edginess and sparkle.

  35. I thought that dress was Boden and was pleasantly surprised that it is good old Lands End, one of my favorite preppy stores. The dress looks so pretty with the mint jacket.
    Have a great evening,
    Stacey
