I saw this picture on The Sartorialist and my heart stopped beating. I am absolutely in love with everything about it. It makes me want to be on an exotic beach wearing a gorgeous bright long flowing dress and drinking a mojito... years ago I decided that due to my height (or lack thereof) I should never wear long dresses but this photograph makes me reconsider.
Instead I am like every other girl in an east coast metropolitan area... black black and more black every single day. My wardrobe at the moment is black leggings with a steady rotation of various boots(top optional?). I tried to change this up slightly the other day when I was at the new Jersey Shore Outlets (amazing, by the way) by buying a pair of gorgeous chocolate brown boots. After wearing them last night and realizing walking in them was like walking on 5 inches of heaven, I asked my dad to please please please go back to the outlets and get me them in black as well so that now I can wear a variation of these boots every single day and fool the world into thinking I am 5'8"... which would be a perfect height to wear that flowing dress above, wouldn't it? Ohhh who am I kidding?
At least she looks great, too!
