This outfit is my second summer staple. I love being able to just get up and throw a dress on, add a few accessories, some lipstick and head out the door. Outfits like these make rushed morning seem so easy and less rushed. I'd like to say it's the simplicity but this dress isn't simple. It's got buttons, clasps and zippers. I think a chastity belt would have been easier than this, especially because I had no help at all. haha.
This weekend, yesterday specifically, I went to see The Great Gatsby. I had finished the book Saturday night and my dad and I needed to be out of the house so my mom could sleep for work so we went to the movies. He saw Star Trek Into Darkness and I saw The Great Gatsby. Besides loving the movie to pieces I fell in love with the soundtrack. It's gorgeous, almost ghostly like. I find that I love soundtracks when they fit with more than just the movie. That's the exact reason I love the Great Gatsby soundtrack.

I'm Wearing: 
Dress: Sirens 
Shoes: Payless
Belt: JC Penney
Bracelet:  "Borrowed" From My Aunt
Earring:  A Gift
Nails: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Coral Reef
My favorite songs off The Great Gatsby Soundtrack: The Great Gatsby by Jessica's Wonderland on Grooveshark



  1. How cute is this dress? Love the way you belted it.

    Also, it's genius that you went to see The Great Gatsby while your dad went to see Star Trek. Did you think the movie stuck close to the original book?


  2. Katrina,
    Thank You!

    I believe that it did stay close enough to the book. With any movie adaptation there was differences but it didn't hinder the story telling at all!

  3. Such a pretty dress! It's worth all the trouble doing it up then? I can't wait for those summery days here, so I can just throw on a dress and go! x

  4. That dress is so cute and looks like it fits you perfectly!

    Awesome piece for summer :)

    xoxo Jackie

  5. You look wonderful!

    xo Jennifer


  6. This dress fits you like a dream! <3 No seriously, it is gorgeous! And I'm so envious of you seeing Gatsby! Movies take forever to come out in New Zealand. I'm quite sure that we have to wait until mid-June. Sob!
