Wardrobe Wednesday - Take Heart

Hi all! Happy first day of summer!!! It sure feels like it here in Illinois - 90+ degrees says it all. If only the beach were a few miles away. Lake Michigan doesn't cut it - no offense to my fellow Chicago bloggers - that water grosses me out. Anyways... I have been a busy bee searching for a job and cleaning out my closet. My poor blog is starting to feel neglected so I am getting my bum back in to gear. I plan to catch up on all of my lovely comments today and tomorrow and get back in to a normal blogging groove. Having a break was nice, but I missed you all!

Taking outfit photos today was brutal due to the heat - yeah, probably should have worn something more "heat appropriate", buttttt the dress is just too cute. This is another dress I purchased from winning the incredible Ruche giftcard from Icing & Write.

Outfit Details: Dress - Falling In Love Heart Printed Dress, Ruche | Bag - Urban Outfitters (old) | bracelet - Egypt | Oxfords - DollHouse.

Today Brian and I are headed to Kiss the Sky - an awesome record shop to pick up one of his birthday prezzies! I am having him choose a bunch of records and then leave the store so I can buy one, haha. He owns too many records so it is just too hard without him picking them out personally. At least he will sort of be surprised? His birthday is Friday, I hope the others arrive on time... Anywho. Have a beautiful day you all!
Stay cool :]

  30. I saw this dress on Ruche and loved it so much!! But it looks wonderful on you. I love the heart print and only reassured myself that I didn't *really* need it since I already have a heart print dress...anything to soften the blow of my own debit card rejection.
    This is definitely going to be a go-to dress in the fall! I mean, look at it! It's so ready to paired with all sorts of colorful tights and even a cute beanie maybe?
