What I Wore Last Week

    Thanks for another great roundup-this feature is such a fun start to the week.

    Also, if anyone is debating getting the Line & Dot sweater dress that was linked for the Women’s Day look…DO IT! I purchased it a few months ago and it’s seriously fab. While working in a coffee shop another patron actually asked me if I worked in the fashion industry because it looked so polished and chic. Those are the kind of unsolicited reviews I can get behind

    It’s meant to fit loosely and does run big-I’m usually a 6-8 and the small is perfect.

      Great to hear, thanks for sharing! I chose it because it looked like a great similar option with good reviews, but so nice to hear firsthand. xx

    Love the gold hoop bauble bar earrings! Do they tarnish quickly like others?

      I’ve only had these BaubleBar earrings for a month or two, so I can’t really speak to that, but I will say, I’ve been wearing BaubleBar jewelry since 2011 and have always been very pleasantly surprised with the quality for the price. As for tarnishing, I usually don’t have a problem with any piece other than inexpensive rings tarnishing (after many wears) because of oils on skin, hand washing, sweat, etc. Hoop earrings don’t really touch much of your skin!

    Love your style!! This blog is fabulous. If you don’t mind my asking, how do you curl your hair? Is there a specific tool you use? I can never get my hair to look like that.
