    That dress looks way better on you than on Topshop's site. It's sold out, btw, but I wish they would put their clothes on people instead of just the item with no body. That dress is precious on you, but looks not so great in the picture. I wouldn't have thought it was something I'd purchase, but you rocked it out!

    Truly liking the cute and very feminine style to this outfit. Looking amazing in that Topshop polka and I absolutely have to agree with the fashion matches. Two-tone Zara shoes and brown bag really match. Your H&M belt, which looks adorably classy, suits so well with the whole look-making it even more light, wispy and feminine.

    I'm looking forward to your next post. Truly =0

    Thank you SO SO much for all of the comments- it really means so much to me. I love reading them πŸ™‚
    As for your questions:
    @Chris: So funny you say that…with an arm full of bracelets people at the airport avoid my line like crazy, BUT I try to be mindful of other travelers so I take them even before i get in line sometimes! πŸ˜‰
    @Fashion Suicides: I am actually in San Francisco, not NYC (although I adore NY)…it got to about 70 here this weekend. Not quite warm enough to wear this for long, but I just wanted to play dress up b/c I was so excited about snagging it at Topshop!
    @Style Footprints: It is SO similar- but I actually think the dress she wore was brown and white ;). Still I thought the same thing.
    @Jess: I always respond to comments, but can miss one here or there (not on purpose of course)! I typically wait a few days to answer all questions at once. If you ever have a burning questions you can ask me on twitter! I do not write a lot on the blog, but that may change for 2012…watch out haha!
    Happy Monday everyone xo
