Oversized Dresses

I love wearing dress and my go-to style has always been a form fitting skater style. I love this dress design, but something I just didn't feel like dealing with tight fitting clothes. Recently, I bought a smock dress and holy cow I wish I owned one sooner! They are oversized a bit, so they are incredibly comfortable without looking frumpy. The equivalent of pajamas but still chic.

I found that ASOS has the most smock dresses out of the online stores I've looked at, but Topshop has a killer selection of tunic dresses. Both of these dress styles I had previously written off as something only models could look good in, but I must say I was wrong. Comfortable, easy, and cute. What more could you ask for?

Biking


I bought this awesome purple bike a month ago and have been commuting to work with it. There is a big hill between my home and work, so I usually arrive out of breath and heart pumping. It is nice to sneak in a quick workout while I enjoy the wonderful fall weather.

I don't think I've ever had a fancy bike before either! This bike is cute, and comes with a basket, a built in bike lock, and wheel powered lights. There are rules about not riding your bike when there is snow on the ground, and I'm sure going to miss biking when that happens.

Turkish Towels Update


I've had these turkish towels for a year now and I will never go back to the typical terry towel again. Especially living through the humid summer here where neighbors complained about their towels taking several runs through the dryer to dry.

But, after a year, the tassels were looking frayed and sad. I trimmed them off and sewed the edges and it changed the look of the towels drastically! I like how they look without the tassels, so if I ever get more towels I would sew the edges right away.

It's cool how a bit of sewing can change the look of something!
