Polka Dots and Fishtails

| Dress: mom’s | Sandals: Target |

There is something summery and unique about a tiny fishtail braid among loose waves…

This dress usually isn’t my style, but when I borrowed it from my mom and she insisted that I keep it, I couldn’t turn her down.  These flat sandals let the polka-dot pattern take center stage, but when worn with nude cork wedges and some bright accessories, this dress could be much more than just a preppy staple.



It’s always so windy on days I wear dresses… just like it always rains when I wear white.  Such is life, I suppose.

May really flew by, didn’t it?  It’s almost summer.  Here’s to the month that is fading and the month that hasn’t quite begun.

Lacey Peach

| Jacket: mom’s | Dress: Free People | Wedge heels: DSW |

If you follow me on Instagram (myeverydayrunway) you will have seen a photo of this dress and will know that it is easily my new favorite dress.  The light coral-y peach is so perfect for spring, and the lace overlay is gorgeous and demure without showing too much skin.  It hung in my closet until Easter, and now I am eagerly awaiting occasions to wear it.

Life has been so hectic lately, so I apologize for the utter lack in posts.  I also apologize for the insane amount of grainy iPhone photos that seem to have become my norm.  I only really have time for quick snapshots these days.  Please bear with me; I promise I will try to break that habit and get some pretty photos in sooner or later.

Have a lovely rest of the week!

Nothing really special about this outfit… it’s a dress that I’ve been dying to wear since I bought it last summer.  I’m not sure why I haven’t worn it before, because it is so comfortable and easy to wear.  Plus, the weather was so gorgeous that I couldn’t bear shoving my feet into shoes.  I know summer is coming; the desire to wear shoes goes straight out the window!

In completely unrelated news, I saw The Hunger Games movie last night.  I read the first book the day after Christmas, and voraciously read the other two books afterward.  I had just finished Mockingjay on the plane home from Alabama, as a matter of fact. Anyway, I liked the movie.  They did a fantastic job casting the characters, espeially Jennifer Lawrence… I just wish they dug a little deeper.  For a two and a half hour movie, it didn’t quite leave me as satisfied as I’d thought.  I did cry, and laugh, as a matter of fact, since some of the dialogue was pretty funny.  Of course, nothing could compare to the novel, so maybe I’m jaded and a book snob.  Anyway, enough rambling.

Who saw The Hunger Games?  Did you like it?  How do you think it compared to the book?

Happy weekend everyone!
