the lovetrain rides from coast to coast

What I’m Wearing
* Addison crochet lace dress c/o Shopbop. I’m not super familiar with this brand but Addison has a ton of cute styles!!
* Vintage Matisse turquoise necklace worn upside down
* DIY Tassel earrings
* DVF round sunglasses
* YSL ankle strap wood platforms

* Hair: hot rolled

* Title: lyrics from Tears for Fears “Sowing the Seeds of Love”

I love this dress. I’m wearing it really simply here but it’s quite versatile… and crocheted dresses always seem to come back in style. With a 70’s Bohemian vibe, they’re classics now. I love the length of this one and the jagged hem. It comes with a slip, which I’m not actually fond of. I’ll wear a nude slip next time that stays put. This one, as you can see rides up under my arms and chest, which I don’t like. But “freebies” with garments, like belts, and slips, are never made very well. So… next time.

I turned in my rewrite/edited manuscript last night and oh the sense of freedom I have is amazing. I’ll still be working the rest of the month on photography and captions, tips and quotes but overall, I’m happy that this round is done! Since this is my first book, I’m not exactly sure how many more rounds there will be but the majority of the writing is done and I’m utterly excited to switch my focus back HERE for a while… and on relaxing a little in the warm Summer sun, of course.

Happy Monday!

    I’d love to know where you buy slips. I thought I was the only person on the planet under 60 who appreciates what a good slip can do for a dress, so nice to find another! but that said, I have a really hard time finding them, and often get referred to the ‘old lady’ section where everything is too high in the neck and far too long.

    the dress is stunning – and congratulations on getting through that round of book writing – it will all be worth it!

    p.s. I have a crochet top which I wore last week on the blog but it came with no slip! Instead of frightening people I put a stretchy nude tank under and it did the job – and stayed in place (maybe you need a tight fitting slip?)

    I have something similar that I’ve been meaning to try out myself. I obviously haven’t worn it yet!

    But this inspires me to be bold enough and just do it!
