Turnpike Ghost

Turnpike Ghost- Tegan and Sara (Steel Train cover) 
I found this little romper when I was in Montreal and it was instant love (or lust... I'm not sure as I'm still in the honeymoon stage). I was going to wear it to my friend's wedding this weekend (I swear its ecru/taupe... not as ivory as it appears here!) but I needed some interesting jewelry to wake it up and make it even less wedding-y and wasn't happy with anything in my current collection. So after a grueling pros and cons list I've decided to wear a different dress that I have accessories for and is nowhere near the colour white/ivory! Phew! 

That meant that I was free to wear this guy today though! Which made me very happy and also made me super productive (I fully believe in the correlation between loving your outfit and your productivity! Bosses take note!) I paired it with my handy thrifted blazer and just some wedges and a watch, keeping it simple and easy. 
 
Silk Romper: FCUK (Super Sale!) 
Blazer: Thrifted
Shoes: Aldo
Watch: Guess
Earrings: Vintage
I seem to be having the craziest most exhausting week (hence the major bags under my eyes here!) But I'm leaving for the lake soon for a weekend with friends and the above mentioned wedding, so my whining is done and I'm ready to relax, sit on a dock,celebrate and win some games of Uno! Bring on the weekend!

  11. I was hoping you were going to post about this romper!! I love the way you decided to style it. The bow around the blazer is just too perfect for words. Am I allowed to be in absolute lust with the romper? I promise I won't make a move on it or anything but I might have to stare. Enjoy your lake, wedding, lake weekend. Oh and UNO kicks ass. Totally pulling out the cards tonight! xx

  15. This may be my favorite ever from you! I love the bow tie belt, and that romper is so ladylike and grown-up instead of all the cutesy versions I see all over the place...

    Have a great weekend!

  26. This might be one of my favorite outfits ever.

    That jacket with the bow...
    It's kind of Le Smoking, like YSL and tuxedo-y, but it's also super feminine and wonderful.

    Gorgeous! You wear it well!
