Secret Periwinkle


New dress (also available on Etsy)- c/o  Vivat Veritas, heels – Boutique 9, bag – Lulus Townsend [similar: here], watch – Style and Co.

Dressed up in this proper little A-line periwinkle dress custom made by Chie Duncan of Vivat Veritas, I felt like I should be attending a tea party of some sort. But no, my sister and I just grabbed a bite at Le Boulanger a yummy little sandwich cafe not too far from my old community college. 

I just love, love, love the weather these days…and you might notice I’ve gotten a bit tanner. It also gets dark at 8 pm now, just perfect for my late schedule since I am always up so late, my days start later. During the winter I always had to rush to take photos by 3 or so because it was dark by 5! 

Don’t forget about the Vivilli giveaway, you can view it here. Coming up soon is A) 720four giveaway, B) Blaque Muse giveaway, C) Amber Avenue and from there 6 giveaways I haven’t decided on a date yet. 🙂

    I lurrrve your dress. Feminine and flirty, without being over the top, and definitely flexible in terms of where you could wear it. A little cardigan with nice flats and it would be perfect for the office, too!
