All These Lines Turned Into Words

A few weeks ago I was browsing the sale rack of Urban Outfitters and I came across this beautiful dress in my size. Apparently someone bought it online and returned it in the store so I scored it for super cheap. Two of my friends' moms commented on how much they loved my dress when I wore it; therefore, I will now refer to it as Mom Dress #2. I'll save the story of Mom Dress #1 for when I (eventually) end up wearing it on my blog. The chance of that is unlikely since I've never worn Mom Dress #1 since I bought it over four years ago.

Looking at these photos, I'm kind of wishing that I chose to pair it with different shoes. My mom suggested thinner heels but, until I own a pair, these wedges will have to suffice for now!

Wow - all UO? I must be so hip.

I'm more than half way through my first official week as a full-time employee and I'm loving it. I'm working at VaynerMedia, which is in New York City, and until I find housing I'll be stuck commuting back-and-forth from New Jersey. If only living with Manhattan was cheaper! Time to live on an extremely tight budget. Ramen noodles, anyone?


  1. I love your dress! It's perfect for summer, and I bet it will be a lot of fun to layer with, come fall. I agree about the shoes; they look good, but I think something else might look even better. I'm glad you're liking your job! Hopefully you find a place soon... My fingers are crossed for you!

  2. Looking stunning, Jen! And now I'm dying to see Mom Dress #1 :) And congrats on getting through the first full-time week! I'll keep my eyes open for anyone looking to sublet in NYC <3

    Hope everything else is treating you great!!

  8. Oh crud, that dress is rad! It's almost metallic rusty looking from far away... and so neat up close. Seriously a cool piece (for a cool girl such as yo bald self).

    OOPS I meant bad self.

    But that was a funny typo, so I'm keeping it.
