since we are having what will probably be the last few nice days in chicago before the weather goes to hell, i thought i would break an old favorite out of the closet.  it’s gorgeous out and i wanted to take advantage of one of the last days that i don’t need tights and wool and the like.

it’s been ages since i last wore this dress – i guess that definitely means i officially have too many in my collection, eh?  if you look at that link, you will see yet another example of how often my hair changes too.

i only have one cute dog in my collection, though, and here i am telling him what’s what.

outfit details: ice blue dress is from parts & labor; shoes are by frye; socks are from we love colors; headband is from muchloveilly; all jewelry is thrifted

song inspiration: “let it ride” by ryan adams and the cardinals.  this is great song to listen to whilst having adventures.  unfortunately, i am listening to it on headphones in my office while having the great adventure of creating wireframes for a website instead of in a convertible headed somewhere cool, but it’s still an awesome tune.  and your trivia for the day – that’s rachael yamagata singing harmony.  i just got ryan adams’ new album ashes & fire, but haven’t really had a chance to digest it and report back yet, so this can hold us over in the meantime.

    Love the dress! The color is one of my favorites and looks really good on you. And I adore the shoes too!

    You can’t have too many dresses, in my opinion! ^_^

    Love your blog … I added it to my favorites list on mine (Udarata Kella)! Hope you don’t mind?

    this is actually one of my fave RA songs.
    I must have heard it once and let it rattle around my brain. Then I was humming/strumming something for awhile making what I thought was an awesome new song. Then I heard this song again and was all “Damn you Ryan Adams. DAMN YOU.”, it was exactly what I was writing at the time.
