This is one of my favorite morning rituals - sitting outside in our small orchard and drinking a cup of tea.  Even though the dogs didn’t make in into any of today’s photos, they are always around :)  I think I set up a scavenger hunt for them before taking these photos (I hide treats all over they yard - they have to sniff them out - it’s keeps them quite occupied!).

Dress (worn as a top):  SheInside
Skirt:  J.Crew Factory
Sunglasses:  Aldo
Bracelets:  Jacob
Purse:  Banana Republic {old}
Shoes:  Arturo Chiang Beatrixx


I loved the look of this SheInside dress online, however when it arrived, it was WAY to short.  Even my most daring self could not pull off such a short dress (keep in mind I am nearly 6’ tall).  Instead, it has been re-purposed as a top.  The quality is pretty decent for the price (I find SheInside can be hit-or-miss with regards to quality).

I am slowly trying to fill gaps in my closet - for example, I finally purchased a plain white button-down shirt last week {this one}.  These flats were bought in March as part of the same initiative.  A beige shoe is a nice neutral that can be paired with almost anything :)

Happy Saturday!
I stalked this J.Crew dress online for quite awhile. When it finally came on sale, I quickly snatched it up.  Not only has it been in heavy rotation as part of my work wardrobe, but it can easily be worn for more casual pursuits.  It’s one of those great flexible pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down.  Definitely a worthwhile purchase. 
In an effort to simply my wardrobe, I have recently been on the lookout for items that can pull double-duty.  I would love to hear about your favorite high-rotation purchases :)
