Peasant Girl

Gap dress and cardigan, Michael Antonio wedges, Francesca's earrings,
F21 bangles

Last week my husband treated me to a massage at a spa down at the boardwalk. I haven't had a massage in five years, so this one was greatly appreciated. When I finished, I decided to take a stroll down the boardwalk and check out some of the shops. I picked up this cute little maxi and cardigan (on sale!) and just couldn't wait to wear it.  

The dress has a peasant feel to it and I think it is because of the tacked on ruffle at the bottom of the dress. Oh, and by the way, these are the pictures we took AFTER I noticed I still had the giant store sticker denoting the size, down the front of my cardigan. Oh boy.

  30. I love that maxi dress--the ruffle detailing is so pretty! If it makes you feel any better, I left the tag on a new blazer accidentally and then wore it out. I think stuff like that happens to everyone :)
