Mornings

Dress c/o Minted Republic (Only $44!), Sweater Zara, Heels YSL, Purse Vintage Chanel, Sunnies American Apparel

Can you believe this dress is only $44!? It's from the adorable online boutique Minted Republic. I love the lace detailing and how it scoops in the back. Thomas and I decided to dress up for no specific reason and get breakfast this morning. It was somewhat of a celebratory breakfast since classes are officially over. We will both be gone this weekend, so we like to spend some "special" time together before we leave.


I also have a video tutorial for this milkmaid braid hairstyle here

Gorgeous! I would have to stay up all night to look this good by breakfast! Unless breakfast was at 5pm. :). Your hair is adorable and perfect for the upcoming summer months, and totally highlights the leave detail of the dress!

angela barrientos said...

Love the dress! I do have a question that may seem inappropriate, but what kind of bra do you wear with this dress? Or do you go bare? I have a couple backless dresses but I can never seem to get the bra right.
Thanks in advance

Talk about a perfect spring outfit...there is so much that I love about this look! The print of the dress is really pretty, but what really gets me the most are the lace hem and back detail; together wit the milkmaid braid and heels, they make for such a lovely, romantic look - I can only dream of looking this good in the mornings!! :P

Hope you're having a great week-end!
