Wasted daylight

Today is the first day of Daylight Savings Time, where we push the clocks ahead and enjoy an extra hour of sunlight each night. I didn't do anything to take advantage of this today, didn't even watch the sunset since I was out shopping with my Mom at the time trying to help her find a dress for my Sister-in-law-to-be's Shower next weekend. We were successful, and I didn't buy anything for myself in that store.

I did however, decide that the dress I need to wear to the Shower is the Feather Dress from Urban Outfitters.

The weather might almost be moving into the spring, with 50°s in the forecast for the week, though my color pallet today is decidedly autumn.

Having missed out on an hour of sleep, I'm already craving my pillow, and I have to confess, I'm feeling nervous about this week. I have no outfits planned or photos taken for the first time in 19 weeks. While I wont miss the chaotic scramble over the weekend, it was awfully nice knowing everything was planned and done. (Not that I couldn't continue planning my outfits all out ahead of time, but without the absolute need to, the laziness will has surfaced.)

In other shopping news, the Target designer dress re-release was today; did anyone go out and buy one? I've got my eye on the lace print Rodarte, but I keep telling myself "willpower Lyddie, willpower!"

Oh, you look so pretty in pink! And I love the doggie accessory :)

Sue said...

I love the color combination--I never would have thought of putting those colors together. That's one reason I love your blog . . . I get such great ideas I can use myself. And I didn't even know about the Target re-release--thanks for the tip. (P.S. Love your puppy! What's his/her name?)

Love this outfit!!! I'm wearing something similar-ish tomorrow XD That lace dress is soooo pretty!!

and I was VERY bad and ordered 5 target dresses this morning, but 1 is for my sister, 1 is one we might share and then the other 3 I will probably only keep one. I just ordered a bunch to make sure I would be able to have one...so I have to hope that they aren't all gorgeous XD *long rant over*

That pink highlights your colouring really well! It is so happy and cheery that it made me smile :)

Kara said...

Great color combo! I did check out the target sale, but decided that my last shopping spree was enough :)

Wish I could get away with such a beautiful bold berry shade. It clashes too much with my hair!

Tamuna said...

I liked that Target dress you've got an eye on for. It's pretty! And oh, did anyone notice the leave stuck on Chloe's leash? Looks like a pretty doggy brooch:))

Your dog looks like a fluffy cloud! :) Soooo precious. One of my fave color combos is pinks and browns. Nice...

Rachel said...

I always hate daylight savings...but the outfit is great, and I love the dress you're planning on wearing to the shower!

That Urban Outfitters dress is so pretty! I meant to try to make it to a Target today but things just got totally away from me. I'm thinking of moving and was able to get some showing today so everything just sort of took second seat to that.

Love the colors in this outfit! Also, the leaf on your dog is adorable.

I actually picked up the Rodarte lace dress and am loving it. I sized up though because my regular size was a little short for my taste. And I love the feather dress that you're planning on wearing. Can't wait to see it.

Hip hip hooray for an extra hour and thumbs up for a cute outfit. Love the chocolate and purple together.

Mrs. J said...

Awww...that was so sweet but Thank God for Mac and Olay facial cloths!! Lol

Jess said...

I ordered two of the Tucker dresses!

Kellie said...

Chloe is adorable!

I think animal print with any shade from the red family is striking! I keep seeing leopard after I've posted for the day. Feel free to link up so everyone can see your fabulousness! I just saw the Target designer thingamabob and that Rodarte is one of my faves. I, too, shall exercise self-control.

getting that extra hour of sunlight is kinda totally worth it though don't you think? looking lovely dear x

Iris said...

I was at a Target picking up some DayQuil to fight this super cold I have and couldn't help but lust over a Libertine dress that I had never seen before then I sniffled (from the cold not sadness) and left. I def don't need another black dress even if it has a gorgeous vintage-esque collar and pockets...

Chloe is so good in the photos! Off to check out the online selection for the GO dresses now.

I'm trying to have willpower, so I avoided Target today. They have a lot of cute dresses, but I'm not sure if I want to pay $40-ish for a Target dress right now.

eek said...

Krystal said...

Now you're making me want to go back and get the Rodarte too! HAHA. Oh and the Maxx is such a great resource for scarves. Loving the leopard!

Marella said...

You look amazing!
Thanks for your sweet comment <3

Franca said...

pink + brown = great!

Amber Blue Bird said...

i really love the color of your dress, it looks great on you and compliments your skin tone so nicely. I did hit up the Target designer dress re-release, I didnt intend to, I just meant to go in and get hairspray but I came out with that and two dresses....i have no will power

silvergirl said...

Yea, What is up with one stupid hour messing with my whole day? you would think we lost 6 hours or something.
I am coveting the Tracy Feith dress, but am trying to be strong too.

I am loving all your browns here... lovely combo and of course my dear Chloe. You know if she had a blog I would follow her too.

DaniellaBella said...

Ooo! I love the colours!

gypsyroxylee said...

Love this color combination! And Chloe looks absolutely adorable!I think the lace print Rodarte dress would look perfect on you! It looks like your trademark type of dress. And hey, summer is right around the corner and you're worth it! Besides, with your talent at mixing and styling, you'll get your money's worth. I'm sure of it!

Alex Elizabeth said...

I think your colors are actually springish (or at least on trend with neutrals and brights). I am so happy that it's actually light out at 6pm now... get to take some good photos after work for the next few months!
