Style Files // Weekend Casual


As many of you know, I have many avocations, and cooking and baking are just two of them. I have been doing loads of it to prepare for a couple of upcoming dinner parties and a surprise birthday brunch. I will have more homemade goodies to share, and you can catch most visual edibles on Instagram as well as the blog soon.

You can usually catch me hosting and entertaining when I have "spare time." Yes, spare time, that's a funny expression isn't it? Although there really isn't much of that typically in my week, I manage to find a way to reserve time. But, in this instance I was on my way to an early dinner with family friends from Berlin. So, we just brought wine and other beverages that could be toted stylishly by hand.

This outfit is supposedly a dress, and to be honest, it's often a risk selecting certain garments pieces. I am tall, however not of an Amazonian stature in my daily posture. I'm used to altering pieces to fit my body, and don't usually quibble over such things. But, this "dress" is essentially a tunic at best on me, so as I did what I usually do with many pieces alike and layered it.

I like it better this way. I'm sure it looks lovely as a dress on someone, just not on me! Everyone kept saying, "I love your shirt" or "what an adorable top." I laughed and just said, "thank-you." Sometimes it's best just to go with the flow. Haven't you been there?

Aside from that, I adore the fun print on this dress, and the boots are extremely comfortable. Much of the weekend, as expected was filled with baking, and enjoying the great company of family friends.
