Mod, Mod World


You can’t tell by these photos but I am in the best mood ever today. Why? Because I got 10 hours of sleep last night. I’ve been waiting for that kind of sleep since I was a toddler. It is taking everything in me to not hug every person I see today. I am very aware of how annoying I am today which is probably why it is best that I rarely get a lot of sleep — people like me a little better when I’m smug and sarcastic. But today I just want to spread love and happiness and rainbows and adopt free kittens and buy all the Girl Scout cookies in the world. This is me well-rested. Now who wants a lemonade with a swirly straw and a hug?

Also, be a doll and ignore the wrinkles today. This is one of those dresses where you can iron it all day long but one 10-minute commute and you are all sorts of wrinkled. 


Dress: c/o PB and J Boutique

Jacket: Bloom

Tote: Madewell

Necklace: c/o Jeweliq

  18. Yay for sleep! I however was not so lucky last night.  That said I am now the proud owner of the same Madewell bag you are sporting in this shot (and many others).  Knowing this makes me feel like I might someday be as well dressed as you are. Someday.

    Wrinkles drives me nuts! If I have a piece of clothing that wrinkles easily – I am so tempted not too wear it – I feel so sloppy in it.  But you look great and I could not even see the wrinkles in it.
