You didn’t have to do it, but you did it to say

Well, you’ll definitely not get any complaints out of me. It’s fucking gorgeous out. The kind of day that makes you forget about every snow fall and frozen noses.

I spent the morning jogging along the Charles River, then walking around newbury street before grabbing lunch (outside of course). There was a quick detour to the Boston Public Library. The courtyard in the middle is the second most peaceful place in Boston. The first? The butterfly room at the Museum of Science. It was the perfect place to stop and grab some photos.

I bought this dress online and of course, sized up a bit too much. It’s just loose enough in the waist to look sloppy, not casual. My quick fix? Pinching the middle together and pinning it. It’s a great trick to make something fit better and adding some visual interest.

I couldn’t resist taking a photo of this guy and his dog. They are quite a pair, huh?

As for the rest of day? Breakdancing class. I kid you not. Every inch of me aches!

    I love that dress from Asos! I’ll also have to try the draping trick on a couple of my dresses that are too large. Seems like you had a lovely day!

    The draping looks fabulous! I didn’t read the post first, just looked at the photos – it definitely looks like it came like that. I don’t normally like maxi-dresses, but you look effing gorgeous lady :)

    And um, breakdancing classes? HELLO, AWESOME.
