SLIDER

A Trendy Teal Dress

Dress: Aeropostale   Shrug: (thrifted) Old Navy   Necklace: Rue 21   Glasses: c/o Firmoo   Shoes: c/o My Hot Shoes   Bangle: Philippines


Okay...I realize we have officially entered fall now...but when I saw this dress on the sales rack at Aeropostale, I knew it had to come home with me. I mean, a pretty teal shade and feather print? It was definitely meant to be more than a one night stand.


Plus, it went perfectly with my statement necklace from Rue 21. I picked up this piece of jewelry some time ago, but this was the first time I wore it out. Sad, huh? I definitely need to integrate it into more outfits! 


Once again, I'm wearing glasses. You may have to get used to it because I'm loving giving my eyes a break from contacts. Since I have long days of school and work, they're much easier to slip on in the mornings and my eyes don't feel dried out by the time I get home.


Lately I feel like I haven't been using my time productively - which is bad, since I have so little of it left for myself! Some of my goals to accomplish the next chance I get are simple, but I almost never get around to it. For example, I want to:
  • Paint my nails (preferably like this)
  • Organize my closet and switch it to fall/winter clothing
  • Bake a few treats I've found online (something like this would be marvelous)
  • Practice guitar for a solid half hour.
And actually, I can now check off that last goal - I managed to do that last night during Patrick's visit! Haha, he just chilled on the couch while I sat on the floor beside it, strumming and singing. It was so relaxing and freeing to show him that side of me, and I think it got to him. He was so sweet, telling me I have an amazing voice, and encouraging me to train it if I could. Apparently, (and this is according to him, a music major) I could go pretty far with this talent.
 I don't know, it's something I just enjoy doing as a hobby. But it was interesting to hear that. 


In other news, guess who has the funds saved up to splurge on a nice camera!?!? Oh yeah, this girl!! I am so beyond excited (in case you can't tell)! ;)
Now I need some feedback from you bloggers. I'm considering getting the Nikon D3100 since it's in my price range, and I believe to be a very good camera. Anyone have this one? What is your suggestion? I'm a total beginner when it comes to SLR cameras just so you know, so I'd appreciate anything you'd have to say. :)


Anyway, hope you're all having a good start to the week.

PS: Don't forget about the InDressMe Giveaway going on here!

Great dress. You should have had Patrick take a picture of you while you were singing and strumming your guitar. Something about a girl in HER element is super cool! I bet those would be great pics!

Oh my gosh, this is totally a Linda dress. This is so you and your blog. Like, I don't think there's a more perfect dress. IT SHOUTS YO NAME, GIRL.

That being said, it's very cute and I'm glad that you snagged it up.

Yes, the necklace goes well with the dress.

Nikon is a good brand but I don't know much about the different models. I use Canon; they make great cameras too.

i'm still not ready to give up my summer clothes so i'm refusing to bring the sweaters in just yet haha. and love that dress! i'd take it home too- and it really does go perfect with your statement necklace. my favorite are your shoes though- i'm lusting hard over them!!

Karola said...

I love your necklace! I have a similar one, also in teal. :) You look fab.
I don't know about this camera. I also want to buy one, preferably this week, but I need a compact with big zoom for my concert photos, so I can't say anything about this one - too big for me. :)
