Wardrobe Diaries: Downtown Weekender

One of the things I miss most living in small town USA is the ability to walk to places. Where I live there are no pavements, shops are broken up and scattered along the highway. Boutique stores and cafes are pretty much nonexistent, and lunch via the drive thru seems to be the norm. There's no denying it, I do miss city life. In my previous life, walking made up a big chunk of my day. Back then it never occurred to me there were places in the world where pedestrians were viewed as being either odd or homeless. I guess when cities are built to revolve around cars then the loss of street life really shouldn't come as a surprise.This lovely dress by Judith March I recently purchased from Couture Crush, one of a small handful of boutique stores that exist in our town. The crochet overlay and lovely mustard colour gives it a summery bohemian vibe perfect for a relaxed weekend about town.

What a beautiful dress!! It looks amazing on you! And I agree, I love walking from place to place! Even though LA is so large and we often have to drive places, it's nice to live on Ventura Blvd where there are so many shops & restaurants that I can walk to on a daily basis.
Also, re: the lace shorts, I didn't see them online at AA, so I hope that you live close to one so you can find them! Good luck!! :)

I knew the day would come when I would have to reveal myself in my blogosphere. I admit, I've been adamant about posting any photos of myself. I was seriously just gonna grab a photo of a pear and photoshop some sunglasses and a smile and call it my doppelganger. I guess lack of confidence have contributed to this. For the mean time, can't I just email you a photo?!?? haha

and very beautiful dress :)
