Where:
The bookstore, baby!!

Why:
I’ve started and deleted this sentence so many times -  just trying to find the right words to share with you how happy I am today.  Guys - I’m really happy. Today’s the day that the What I Wore book hits shelves. This book has been a labor of love and I’m so proud of the final result.  I hope those of you who get to see it love it just as much as I do. 

And from my first announcement until now, thank you for the words of support and encouragement. I read each and every comment, tweet and e-mail and they really mean a lot to me. 

As for my outfit - I looked back to the book for ideas on this one.  I’m wearing the same black skirt as on the cover and layered it over a dress that I illustrated in the spring chapter.  To tie it all together, I used one of my gauzy summer scarves.

WhatIWore:

When:
July 7, 2011 (evening)

What:
Dress: Maple via Anthropologie
Bracelet: passed down from my mom
Shoes: c/o Coach

Where:
My Bloomington Book release party!!

Why:
For a very special occasion, I chose a very special party dress. It’s not often that I find myself shopping anything other than the sale section at Anthropologie, but if there was ever a time for a reward, this was it. I have a feeling it’s going to become one of those Hall of Fame dresses anyway - I can see it looking great as an alternative to an LBD for summer parties or sweet and simple with flats and a denim jacket. And oh, does it twirl!! 

Do I look happy or what?! You couldn’t wipe that smile from my face if you tried ;)
