Cabi Dress


Dress:  Cabi |  Blazer: (Stitchfix) 41 Hawthorn similar here | Shoes: Jimmy Choo similar here cheaper here and here | Bag: Louis Vuitton | Sunglasses: Micheal Kors | Necklace: PopSugar  Deepa Gurnani Aria Necklace | Hat: PopSugar Goorin Bros. Fatima

Yep!  I chopped off all my hair!  The shortness totally freaked me out at first but now it feels so light I love it.  I love this dress almost as much.  Monterey had a weird one day heat spell the weather went from our usual 65 to 95 degrees!  It was awful.  Dresses make the best hot weather outfits, don’t you think…?  This blazer was light and the hat gave the perfect amount of shade.  These shoes are vintage Jimmy Choo and the hat + necklace are from old Popsugar boxes!

We were back at Monterey city hall for the shoot.  This garden is just to the left of Colton Hall if you happen to be in the area and want to give it a look.  The flowers were all in bloom and absolutely stunning.  There is a giant lawn just in front and it is the perfect place for a picnic or to just sit and people watch.

Thanks for stopping by!

    The new cut really flatters your face and the dress is very pretty. It looks super comfy.

    I buy hats and then don’t wear them. I think I own about 20 and everytime I grab one out of the closet I end up walking out without one.

    I just love hats! I keep saying I”m going to wear them more often 🙂

    I love your hair! I’m considering cutting mine, too, but my husband has other opinions. That’s rich coming from a bald guy ; -)

    Totally like the new hair, it suits you and the weather as well! Having long locks takes a lot of effort sometimes. The dress is perfect for warm weather, I agree!

    Great images and a great outfit. I never get sick of looking at these kinds of posts. I guess I”m just girly.

    Cute hat. I’m a huge fan of dresses, and wear them every chance I get. I feel the most comfortable in them for hot weather too.

    That’s a beautiful garden for photography. That outfit really looks darling on you BTW. I love wearing stripes because I’m short and they tend to make me look a little taller. Blue is always a fave with me.

    Cute outfit! I need to start wearing more dresses, I never do but they are so much easier to put on and pair with accessories that I really need to start.

  26. April 13, 2016 / 1:43 pm

    I have been looking for a dress like that for my brothers wedding. Thank you!! This is beautiful and you look stunning!

    I love your hat. I have one in red and purple. I’ve never really worn it with an outfit except when I go swimming but your photos are perfect.

  29. April 15, 2016 / 4:56 am

    The outfit looks great on you. I love wearing dresses when it’s hot out as well, it really does cool you off.
