Black dress – Merona for Target (no longer available)
Teal suede pumps – Jessica Simpson “Terrance” (no longer available)
Silver necklace – Ann Taylor (no longer available)

An early start today, but my husband was also up early so he tried to take a picture of my outfit before I left today. Still dark out, not the best when wearing a black dress, so I took a few pics in my office bathroom.

The hair was still damp when I left this morning – just quickly dried the bangs and piled it on top of my head. I have yet to take it down, especially since the elevator operator said with my hair like this I looked 19! Oh he is such the charmer…

Today my husband is going for a day trip with one of his best friends to see the Picasso exhibit in Richmond. They decided to leave early to beat the DC rush hour, which is why he was up at the crack of dawn with moi. My mom who is a SAINT came over around 6am to hang out and watch TV or whatever until Emerson woke, and then is watching her for the day.

    Yeah, not the best photo, but at least I did a post (unlike today!). great to see your name on here, dear fellow veteran fashion blogger! 🙂

    Wow, this is so stunning – and I instantly thought “Audrey Hepburn” too, it has that kind of simple glamour about it!

    The black dress against the black sky was probably not the best “outfit” photo, but it is a really neat shot! I’m glad you shared it.

    Allie, you look so great in this outfit. So chic. Love the shoes and love your hair today.

    I don’t think I’ve told you this, but, I shopped your closet and purchased the green/cream silk Banana Repulic shirt dress from you. I’ve worn it twice and have never received so many compliments on my outfit. It was the best, what, $15 I’ve ever spent!!! Thanks for letting it go!

    hello, Ive been lurking on your site since I stumbled upon it last summer, and just wanted to say that you are such an inspiration to me. I love your sensible fashions, and hoe you write. I really love how you list the things you wear when available so that we can go dress like you. You have inspired me to wear dresses and skirts for the first time since I was in elementary school! thank you and keep it up.

    This is hands down one of the chicest outfits that I’ve seen you in. You look great. I love the simplicity of the dress with the super puller together looking hair and the bold necklace.

    You don’t normally wear your hair up, and I must say, you look very glamorous that way! And your bangs look great. Darn it, you’re just fabu, what can I say? And your mom rocks, too. Not all grandmas will do stuff like that!

    Allie, you DO look 19 with your hair up like this – lovely! 🙂

  14. August 9, 2011 / 11:26 pm

    Thanks! And yes! I saw your email on the listserv and was so excited – can’t wait to meet you IRL!

  15. August 9, 2011 / 11:26 pm

    i guess i have never seen you with your hair up — im loving it! different, but still chic. and with the gorgeous weather outside today, it must be nice to feel the breeze on your neck!

    Those shoes are gorgeous! And I think your quickly done “up-do” looks very refined!

    Love the chic style of your outfit. It’s so funny that your husband is going to the Picasso exhibit. My Honey, sister, Mom, and I are going Friday. Can’t wait!
