A few snapshots of my borrowed look from Saturday’s event! I fell in LURVE with this dress– I’m kicking myself for not getting a shot of the fun back [jacket stayed on all day-- brrr!], but you’ll have to check it out here.

I never pick up cool-chick jackets like this on my own, so I was grateful for the FP team’s push :) Not pictured: Its adorable cozy hood.

If I didn’t like white//cream lace dresses so much, I can’t even begin to tell you how much money I would have saved in my lifetime. I wear them all year long, saving the pure whites for the spring and summer months. My newest love comes in the form of this Staring at Stars pretty from Urban Outfitters– so romantic and whimsy!

I know that within my normally preppy style, you all may find that I, at times, have hipster tendencies. This probably stems from my alma mater’s influence (though I was nowhere close to most of my classmates in terms of Urban Outfitters addictions!). Yet I can always appreciate a good pair of oversized black-rimmed glasses, like these from Firmoo.
Firmoo is an online prescription and non-prescription glasses retailer with tons of styles to choose from at seriously I-can’t-believe-it affordable prices. In fact, your first pair can even be free. I adore the pair they sent me (can be found here) and am having fun using them as more of an accessory than a necessity– they’re a little bigger and wilder than my everyday glasses.
Ordering them was way too easy– all you need to do is insert your prescription. My only quibble? They were a little big for me and needed some adjusting, though I blame this more on my own head, not Firmoo!
But really, how many is too many when it comes to glasses? Because I sense I’ll be ordering a few more pairs…
Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary pair of glasses to review; all opinions expressed are my own.
On a daily basis, I try to dress by a certain “live colorfully” motto. Yet even I can’t deny that a black and white ensemble is always classic and chic. A black blazer is a closet staple, and I first got the idea to pair them with white dresses + rainboots from this shot of Reese Witherspoon. The bow headband and tassel purse are my own fun additions :)
