When: day after Christmas // Weather: 40s // Real life: big shopping day!
Check out this adorable dress my mother-in-law got me for Christmas! I liked it so much, I wore it the very next day (plus, I wasn’t the best packer and I was 1 outfit short for the trip). It just so happened that I packed my feather pendant, so I figured why not go all the way with this bird thing. I love it. And I think I’ve finally found my spirit animal: the swan. First, it’s a nod to my ballerina days. Second, swans are elegant but intimidating, which is pretty much the vibe I’m aiming for (whether or not I achieve it consistently is a different story). Third, I always say my style is “girly badass,” and what says “girly badass” better than this (besides Beyoncé)?
