Hot Pink (See Jane Wear)

J Crew dress (via eBay), Corey Lynn Calter belt (from dress), unknown (old) necklace, Rebecca Minkoff purse, Lovely People wedges

On Saturday night, we went over to a friend's house for dinner and to meet their new baby girl.  It was the quintessential summer evening---nice and balmy accompanied by activities like grilling out and shooting oysters.  Plus, we got to meet their adorable baby.  Nothing says "it's a girl!" like hot pink, right?

Unfortunately, that's about all I did this weekend.  I spent some time rearranging the bedroom closet and am still not finished.  When it comes to domestic activities, I move at a glacial pace.  My goal for the summer is to paint and redecorate our bedroom; we'll see how that goes.

Enough about me--how was your weekend?

The colors are like a pretty, summer sorbet treat! I move at a glacial pace when it comes to domestic activities as well :)

Totally in love with your girlish pink stripes! I agree with the whole domesticated tasks taking forever issue. I tried to clean out my closet (just my closet) and gave up half way through...over it. ;)

Annnnnna, this is SO CUTE! I love the hot pink, and I love that you paired it with the yellow belt! And I am swooning over your necklace! I have been on the hunt for the perfect gold chain for what feels like 100 years. Beauty!

You are clearly a girl after my own heart with the yellow belt on the pink dress! I love this, you look adorable! Those shoes are fantastic, too!

Sometimes it's better to move slowly when getting things done around the house. Otherwise you move too fast and end up not liking the results!

Love your outfit, sounds like a perfect Chicago evening to me!

Jenna Lee said...

I absolutely LOVE this dress. Its so pretty. Its very flattering! The color is great! I'm obsessed!

Anna Jane said...

Hi @Phoebe - unfortunately, the wedges are pretty old. I bought them at a local Chicago boutique back in 2008.

Ashley said...

Love the hot pink with a pop of yellow!

I'm sort of the opposite when it comes to domestic activities- once I get it in my head that something needs to be reorganized/cleaned out/painted/cleaned up, I'm full speed ahead. Probably also called OCD... :)
