As promised

The striped tank dress that was back ordered from Urban Outfitters finally arrived the other day, and I could not have been more excited to wear it. The dress is a comfy jersey, and the medium (thankfully) fits, except the straps need to be shortened (story of my life).

As I wrote in my email to UO customer service, I'm wearing it with my cognac wedges, orange cross-body bag, and floppy hat. The puppy is a bonus accessory, and no, she is not mine. Chloe would not be down with having a sister anyway.
