Begonia Skies Like A Sleepyhead


So I'm having kind of an amazing day so far.  Before going to bed last night I watched When In Rome with my roommate (Monisha) and it was nice having a night where I didn't have to worry about an upcoming exam or homework assignment due. I woke up to the lack of an alarm, got IHOP (om nom nom nutella crepes), and then went shopping and scored a dress, two skirts, and a shirt for under $40. Now I'm at work at it's an easy, chill day and I'm off to the theater later tonight to see a movie. Oh, and did I mention it's the perfect breezy, autumn day? Well, it is. :)

This is by far my favorite photo shoot and outfit this month. I've been meaning to find a way to wear this slip for the longest time but I could never figure out how to.  It's completely see through so obviously quite scandalous and the fact that it's an empire dress makes it hard to layer with other dresses. Luckily, I decided to be a little bit of a tease and wear it just as it is but with my Topshop sweater I splurged on back during NYFW. The main reason I bought this Topshop sweater is because of the beautiful rose-mauve color. :)

And if you're confused about my status, I'm just currently obsessed with the song Sleepyhead by Passion Pit. It's kind of funny since that's exactly what I've been this past week - a sleepyhead. All I ever do is sleep. If I'm hungry, my solution is to sleep. If I'm bored, my solution is to sleep. If I'm stressed, I sleep. I just sleep and sleep and sleep which is ironic since I believe that sleep is a waste of time. ...If only I could take naps during work. Oh wait, I do.

  6. Jen, I LOVE this outfit with all of my heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart heart. It's really flirty and sophisticated at the same time and I love that you wore casual wedges with it. That slip dress is a dream and reminds me of how much I love sheer things, even though I'm probably over the hill for that kind of thing. I'm so glad you had a great day. I hope more great days come your way and I'm so glad I finally got to see your topshop sweater!!

  10. I love this look, Its some what different to your usual looks which is always fun. That sweater looks nice and comfy and perfect for that 'not warm enough to go sleeveless, not cold enough to wear a jumper' weather. Exactly the weather I've been having lately.

  13. I agree, I think this has been your best photoshoot yet! The curly hair, the rosy mauve sweater, the slip! The slip is sexy in a subtle way, I think you pulled it off so nicely (I love the silhouette, too). This whole outfit is love!

  29. This outfit is both subtle and sexy at the same time.

    You're doing the sheer thing with the chunky knit thing, and you look so lovely doing both!
