blurred lines and sunshine

 
Usually I dress in an abundance of color, but once in a while it's just simpler to throw on a black outfit and accessorize with tiny pops of color here and there. Wore this Banana Republic velvet and wool mixed media black dress (old) over black tights with my trusty black wedges from Forever 21. This shift dress is actually one of my favorite work-appropriate dresses and I probably wear it too often - the silhouette is just so flattering (even on a bloated tummy day), and so simple to toss on while looking decently put-together without trying too hard.

 
Thought it'd be fun to show you all one of my best friends, Spongebob, wearing my rainbow fur-lined trapper hat, and the best holiday cards from my little brother and older sister (dog and snowman). Also, the galaxy-decorated drawers were DIY-ed using Rodarte gift wrap and printed packing tape... fun decorating DIY idea! (I got too lazy to do the second drawer...)
 
PS. I definitely use spongebob as a pillow sometimes. Whoops. :)
