Yes, it's still warm enough to wear sandals, but you're probably pretty sick of me complaining about the heat, so let's move on...

I wore this lovely, summery outfit to the Hammer Museum a few weeks ago, but I just didn't feel like taking photos that day. Is it just me, or do other bloggers sometimes recreate an outfit just for a photoshoot days (or even weeks) after you actually wore it? I mean, I wasn't even going anywhere the day I put this on for the photoshoot. I literally put it on, went outside to shoot it, and then promptly changed when I got back inside. I don't know why, but it feels like cheating for some reason! 

All 'cheating' aside, this is one of my favorite vintage pieces. Who doesn't love a colorful 70s sundress? The black vest and sandals help to weigh things down a bit and make the whole look a bit more seasonally appropriate. It is October after all! Hopefully I'll be able to sport some actual fall outfits soon.
