What to Wear >> To a Baby Shower

It's been awhile since I posted an outfit around these parts! And posting two days in a row, what am I, trying to win an award or something? But when I got an email with a gentle nudge from Nicole to get back in the game so to speak, I couldn't help but oblige. I meant to do more What to Wear posts, but haven't for whatever reason, so it was just the push I needed. Anyway, I got this rad dress recently and I wanted to show it off to the internets. :)
 You might be thinking, "well that's a nice abstract print." GET CLOSER.
BAM. Upside down cats. Why are they upside down? I don't know. Maybe because I found this at the Salvation Army for $10 as part of Target's sample cast off lot? Maybe. But it kinda just makes me heart it even more.
So would I wear this to a baby shower? Yes, yes I would. Although I actually wore this to work yesterday. I thought a good dose of black would be good to keep the super sweet feel of the dress down, and also because, ahem, I am a 30 year old woman in a dress covered in cats. So on went the cardigan, leggings, and my new favorite boots. Oh, and can we talk about these boots from Teva for a minute? They're rad. Real rad. I know I didn't really take a pic of them here, but they look like this up close. Cute, right? Plus, besides looking good, they're secretly waterproof (perfect for Fall/winter) without looking like they are, and are all ergonomic and what not...cuz they're Tevas. I looked at a LOT of lack booties before settling on these, and am so happy with my purchase.

This is a link up with Gypsy in Jasper, so you should head over there to see what she's going to wear to a baby shower...it's um, unconventional to say the least. ;) Get ready!

  1. I ADORE that dress. I hate cats, but I love that they're upside down! Ha.

    It's great to have you back and to see your smiling face on the ol' blog again.

  2. Yay- welcome back! I adore this dress (duh, I can't resist anything cat print!), and I extra love it that the cats are upside down, gives it even more character! Love this whole look and your hair looks awesome. Also, my outfit was from work yesterday too :)

    I love the dress I think its so cute and quirky that the cats are upside down! But I really love the sweater! Perfect for a baby shower. And it's really good to see you in the link up again!


  5. DAh! This is such an awesome outfit! Perk to the cats being upside down is that they're right side up when you look down at yourself, eh?

  6. Ahhhh, this whole outfit is fantastic and I adore kitty prints, and THAT CARDIGAN! ♥
