There's something special about this outfit. I don't know if it's the cozy tribal print sweater, the large brimmed hat, or maybe that I'm wearing my *only* fancy dress (just look at that beading- let's all collectively swoon), but this is one of my favorites to date.

I need to buy more fancy dresses.

Sweater- Forever 21
Dress- French Connection

  22. Haven't been comment really while you're away but I could not resist professing my love for this outfit. Its really serious true love. The dress is gorgeous and I love the tribal cardi and neutrals with pops of red. HOORAY! I hope you aren't on a crazy bus right now and made it to the coast! I seriously opened your tumblr this morning and saved the post until I could take 5 mins and read it with morning coffee in hand! How I wish I was on an adventure! Thanks for sharing with us!!!!
