When the Stars Come Out // Daily Outfit




I'm so excited about this post! Lauren and I have been talking and working out the details for this swap for weeks and I'm so happy to finally be able to show you all!

When I first tried on this dress for some reason it just made me think of Doctor Who - then I realized that the polka dots on the skirt reminded me of stars. So cool! I've never had a sci-fiy-ish dress before. And I'll admit that at first I wasn't sure how to style it at all - but then I found this cardigan and realized that it would be cool enough for me to wear tights and all was well.

You can see how Lauren styled this dress here. I'll post a link to how she styled the dress I sent her as soon as it goes up/I get home from work.

Hope you all are having a lovely Monday so far!

Edit: Here's the outfit Lauren styled with my dress! Doesn't she look cute?

  1. Love this outfit! Especially the top pic. The all-black look with the just the flower pattern on the dress does look like a starry sky filled with flowering nebulae. :D

    (Everything makes me think of Doctor Who too. Really, I cannot thank you enough for introducing me to the show. As soon as I got into it, I was like, "Where have you been all my life??")

  7. Very pretty, it looks nice with the jacket and the sweater. And boots. I guess boots are needed. Everyone needs boots.
