Feeling Playful.

Confession: I have nothing to do today and nowhere to wear this outfit. I just felt like playing dress up. I might go out later tonight, and hopefully it won't be too terribly cold and I can wear this!

This dress is one of my recent UO purchases. I really fell in love with it today after playing with the styling. I like the zipper - I think it makes the super-sweet girlishness of the dress a little tougher. It has lovely ruffles along the straps and the zipper (which kind of get lost in the print in those photos) so I can't wait to wear it without a cardigan when the weather warms up and show them off. I wanted to try some print-mixing with this dress so I added the polka dot tights.

Well, I'm going to go attempt to be productive. I've been so lazy the past couple days.

What a great outfit. The blues are so bright. And you're right, the zipper does add something special to your very pretty dress. It'll be so perfect for summer.
