Blues

Margaret O’Leary Sweater, Thakoon Addition Dress c/o Les Nouvelles, Vince Sandals (on sale here, here and here), Clare Vivier Clutch, Ariel Gordon Necklace, Sarah Chloe Bangle c/o BaubleBar

I’ve recently come to the conclusion that blue is my favorite color and better yet, blue and white is my favorite color combination. I recently got this layered watercolor print dress from Les Nouvelles, one of my favorite online shops, and paired it with a light blue sweater. You really can’t go wrong with mixing different shades of blue- It always reminds me of the ocean. And as usual, I paired my Clare Vivier clutch and Vince sandals with it. Those two go with everything!

Blue is totally in for summer I think. Blues and whites…very coastal.

My jaw dropped when i saw your thighs and legs in the first picture. You must be about a 10 or a 12 which makes me feel MUCH better about myself.. im sure you will delete this though since all of the comments arekissing your ass. I am going to have to remove you from my blog feed because if i see you end a question with ”no?” One more time i am going to gag.

Hi “Em”,

Actually I’m a size 2. I have a thing called muscle on my legs and I’m proud of it! Glad you’re so confident of your own body :)

xx Julia

So sorry Julia that there can be such rude people out there you have to deal with. This seriously made my stomach drop! You always find a way to respond with such grace! Love your blog :)

I’ve read about people like Em before. They’re called ‘seagulls”. Their goal is to fly over to your blog, shit on it, and then leave.

It’s really sad, because this girl doesn’t know how to deal with her own insecurities and will attack others. If only she knew that she would be a much happier person if she were nicer to others. :)

Love the various shades of blue mixed together..and I just had this discussion with the BF who tried not to wear cobalt-blue with his aqua today ‘because they don’t match’ :-)
Oh & poo on the rude girl Em!..I have the same legs. More so in my calves, super muscular. It doesn’t curtail me in any way except for occasionally tall boots don’t always zip up. Or my skinnies get hung up a lil.
I’d trade em anyday over stick-figure legs LOL!

I love this dress – Does it have pockets?! The pattern is so fun and chic – and it won’t look dated in a few seasons from now.

I have a really short torso and long legs so I have issues with finding a dress where the drawstring doesn’t sit too low. I love how beautiful this dress looks on you paired with those shoes. Are the Vince sandals comfortable?

Thanks for sharing!

Anything that reminds one of the ocean, is always a good thing. :)
