look book: springing for spring

March 3, 2010



I got this dress during Modcloth's Cabin Fever sale and I've been itching to wear it. Yes, technically it's not spring yet..but it was warm enough for me to prance around in so I took the chance!




dress Modcloth, sweater Madewell, shoes Nine West, necklace Urban, clutch Banana Republic

I'm so excited for this weekend. Matthew and I are celebrating our 2 year {dating} anniversary!! It's on Monday so we're celebrating a little early. I honestly can't believe it's only been 2 years..it seems like so much longer. I have a couple surprises for him that I'll share later {he might peek on here!}. It's going to be so much fun though!

  27. Oh Mara you look so incredibly pretty in these pictures. I absolutely love the dress - florals make me giddy; especially purple florals! The addition of the cardigan is fabulous; and I adore the cognac-colored shoes. They remind me of the Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Luella Wedges I've been smitten with for ages!

    Yay for anniversaries! I can't wait to hear about all of your surprises!! :)

  28. Oh love am loving this outfit the colors are amazingly sweet, I love florals to death but this dress is particularly intriguing to me because it has a dark air to it its not all fruity and the light pink sweater compliments it to perfection!
    I love the jewelry am a big fan of Forever 21! They have amazing accessories and really cheap am in love!!♥
    Your hair look so cute! And healthy…. and I don’t want to sound creepy or anything but do you run or something? You have amazingly fit legs, so adorable.
    I love the post am inspired, I will start my hunt for a similar dress on Saturday, Thanks Doll♥
