i've been hoarding this pretty vintage hawaiian print dress for a few months now after seeing stella mccartney show this gorgeous number, but i recently worried that it was too cold to appropriately wear a tropical print. as i was packing away my wardrobe, it hung there just begging to be kept out of those drafty boxes, and daring me to wear it.
and you may already know by now: i'm always up for a fashion challenge. :)
... so on it went for our going away party last week. i paired it with some of my favorite cold weather accessories, grabbed my new wallet-that-doubles-as-a-clutch out of my handbag, and i was ready to walk out the door.
leave it to a girl from the southwest to pretend like it's summer all year long.
