I Keep Writing About Seasons and I'm Sorry

As the government seems to just want to see the world crumble (you know, you know), Milan Fashion Week is serving the perfect dose of escapism. It's feminine and romantic, and much prettier than this look, but this is what I'm working with this week. It's the last little bit of my mind holding on to Winter, but Wednesday's runway shows have geared me up for the season change. Though the collections are aimed at Fall and Winter, a good handful of the flowing fabrics and cool toned florals (I'm looking at you Alberta Ferretti) are reminding of pieces in my own closet, and it's time to bring them back out.

I think I've addressed the oncoming season in every blog post over the last few weeks, but I'm actually excited for it this year. I'm shocking myself. This time last year I was being hit with the beginning of a (roughly) four or five month of severe eczema that left me stuck indoors. I'm praying that doesn't happen this year. I'm in the clear at this moment though, and I'm sitting near a sunlit window, drinking sweet tea out of a mason jar like the Texan stereotype that I am. It's pretty damn picturesque.

Anyway, this black dress was a recent purchase, and with it I officially have a basic black dress in three different lengths. I think that collection is sorted, and just in time, because now I only seem to care about pretty, whimsical pieces. On to the next one... 


  1. I'm so happy for Milan fashion week too! But I'm also feeling quite stressed as I'm having a hard time keeping up with the shows hahah. Sigh. Well well, I'm done with the post for LFW tomorrow and then I can focus fully on Milan! And hope you'll have a chance to embrace the fashion of the season this year! Xx


    1. Oh no, I hope you were able to keep up Mia!

  2. I like your dress! Having a basic black dress is three different lengths is totally essential, though. At least that's what I tell myself... Anyways, sitting by the window drinking tea sounds perfect - enjoy!

  3. One can never have enough LBD's lol. I bought my first one from Mango a few years ago and it's still in a great shape and totally wearable. Yours is lovely and timeless! Have a lovely weekend! x


  4. Lol this made me laugh. I think we are all writing about the seasons because our ootd is based around the weather, so no worries. I think it's hard not to ;) Have a lovely weekend.
