sleep to dream

I bought this new white dress in honor of spring's arrival. Let's see how long I can go without spilling anything on it! So far, so good...though, I may have just jinxed myself with that statement.
Wearing a white dress can feel a bit like wearing a nightgown in public if you don't style it right. But, to be honest, pajamas and bedding are two of my favorite things in the world so perhaps that's why I like this dress so much! hmm...
And speaking of bed-related things, I've been having the craziest dreams over the past few nights! I think, maybe it's just been too hot in my bedroom*? Or maybe it's that everyone keeps telling me we might have a big earthquake in the next few days (total rubbish, since earthquakes are unpredictable. but still). Whatever the case, at the moment I feel like I could pull a "sleeping beauty" and snooze for about a month!

(*Does this happen to anyone else? I'm guaranteed to have kooky dreams or nightmares if the temperature is to high in the room or I'm under too many covers. weird)

(above was my genuine reaction when I learned I was being spied on through a window
by no less than an English man and a small Chihuahua! I'm sure he was wondering why I had on his cardi...)

hey darlin, love the way you styled this. i have a white dress, but have no idea how to wear it without looking like i'm trying to steal attention from a bride. shoes were always an issue and i never thought of wearing it down a bit with a cardigan. much less, white and black together. great! i may have to try it out this week. :)

I LOVE white dresses, they're so dreamy!! I have one that is very lacy and requires a slip underneath and looks like a ballerina's tutu and is entirely inappropriate for life, and if I spill anything on it I'm doomed, but I wear it anyway, I love it so!! Love how you dressed the look down with a large cardi :D xxx

Love, love, love Fiona Apple. I've been obessessed with her music since she came out and have never stopped loving her. I saw her in concert in Austin when I lived there and it pretty much made my life.

I also adore white dresses these days. Yours is lovely.

Aww, this outfit makes me even more excited about that dress! I love how you styled it kind of tough . . . definitely not nightgown-y at all!
