i just love the mix of super girly with a bit of tomboy.  case in point: this white lacy dress with sheer bits (does it get more girly?) and this army boyfriend jacket.  they are, in my opinion, meant to be best friends. and can we talk about my new sunnies?  i'm obsessed with them.  karen walker can do no wrong in my book.  lastly, i haven't been to the hairdresser yet this year.  and in fact, i think my last visit was late last summer, which means i'm slowly creeping up on a year.  i've been doing my own trims, letting the color just be.  and i pretend it's part of my master plan.  but here's the truth:  I AM SO LAZY ABOUT MY HAIR IT'S SHAMEFUL.  please tell me i'm not the only one!  xx- sarah

SHOP THIS OUTFIT:  dress: testament,  jacket: lily aldridge for velvet (here and here), shoes: c/o shoemint, sunnies: karen walker, watch: nixon, forearm bracelet: stella & dot, ring: charles albert bracelets: c/o something epic, gorjana

Seriously love everything about this - that lace dress & that army jacket... and those heels! I love the girly / tomboy mix too, and I've never see anything like this.. you're so good, Sarah. And can we talk about how good your hair looks?? I would like to say I haven't gone to a hairstylist in a year, but that'd be a lie .. gotta maintain this bob! <3

I talked about Karen Walker sunnies on my blog today - she can do no wrong. And I love that jacket, I've been trying to convince myself that I need it but after this post I really think I do!

Love the layering - The juxtaposition of the military-inspired Fall coat w/ the sweet, romantic dress is great!

That dress is adorable. Dude- I WISH i didn't have to think about my hair! In this climate if I don't get trims and some color at least a few times a year I look like a grey rooted brassy hot mess with really bad frizzed out ends. Believe me I'd LOVE to use that $$$ for other things than a hairdresser.
